Vidur’s Film Diary – January 2016


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           February 07 , 2016           08.20 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary completed 6th year of its existence in May 2015. June 2015 marked the beginning of its journey in the 7th year. ]

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. And in 2015 it is now 62.35 % . This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 6 years. And to my utter surprise I have noticed that there were no lean months ever. It never happened that a month came and there were none of my students in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. In fact there were more than a dozen working students every month.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge entered 825th week of uninterrupted run in the first week of August.

After some box office duds , Salman Khan starrer ” Boduguard “ took the nation by storm. It is now the biggest first day grosser of all times as for as Hindi films are concerned .

As usual , to show trends of the industry , I am reproducing relevant tweets from the twitter handles of two eminent trade analysts ; Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh.

Not A Love Story: Started on a weak note. Business did increase marginally at few places, but the jump was missing. Overall, poor.

Chatur Singh 2 Stars: Despite starring well-known stars, fetched a shockingly low start and remained poor all through the weekend. Flop.

Like I had predicted yesterday afternoon, the 1st day estimates of ‘Bodyguard’ are 20 cr + nett. Almost 21 cr, as per early tracking.

Obituary :
==========
Shammi Kapoor : On August 14 , 2011 , with the death of Shammi Kapoor , not only an artiste was dead , but an era ended. This glorious era started in 1953 with ” Jeevan Jyoti ” , a film which he signed first but ” Rail Ka Dibba  “ was released first in the same year. This era will soon be part of history with the release of ” Rockstar “ in 2011 .
I am just mentioning about Shammi ji here . I will soon write a separate blog on him and his 58 year long career.
Shanti Das :  Well known art director Shanti Das died in Mumbai on August 14 , 2011 . He had worked with Shammi Kapoor in many films and its an uncanny coincidence that he died on the same day .
In his 40 year long career he worked in 200 films with stalwarts like ; Raj Kapoor , Bimal Roy , Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Subodh Mukherjee . Shammi Kapoor’s ” Junglee “ was his first big hit . He won many Filmfare award for his films and he got Dada Sahab Phalke Award also in 2000.
Samir Chanda : Another eminent art director Samir Chanda died on August 18 , 2011 in Mumbai. He was only 54 at the time of his death. He began his career with Subhash Ghai’s ” Ram Lakhan “ and continued till “ Black & White ” . His other works were ” Raavan ” , ” Rang De  Basanti “ and ” Delhi 6 ” . It is sad that a promising life ended at such a young age .

Shandar Amrohi : The elder son of film – maker Kamal Amrohi and step son of legendary Meena Kumari died in Goa on August 21 , 2011 at the age of 68.
Shandar Amrohi worked as an actor in ” Razia Sultan “ , a film directed by his father Kamal Amrohi . Though his acting career was short – lived. At the time of his death he was in Goa shooting a music vedio in memory of his stepmother Meena Kumari .
Barkha Roy was penning his biography ” Nowhere To Somewhere ” , which is now complete .
