Vidur’s Film Diary – February 2016


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           March 06 , 2016           10.00 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. ]

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

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 zoomed up to 62.35 % . This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER across the world. 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.

Nida Fazli   :

———————–

Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli, more famously known as Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 – 8 February 2016), was a Hindi and Urdu poet, lyricist and dialogue writer. Born in Delhi, into a Kashmiri family, Nida Fazli grew up in Gwalior. During the partition of India, his parents migrated to Pakistan, but he decided to stay in India.

He moved to Mumbai in search of job in 1964. In the early days of his career, he wrote in magazines like Dharmayug and Blitz .

He became known among readers and ghazal singers for his use of colloquial language for ghazals, dohaas and nazms. He wrote the famous couplet: ‘Duniya jise kehte hain jaadu kaa Khilona hai ; Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai’.

His career improved when Kamal Amrohi approached him for the film Razia Sultan (1983) .  Nida saheb wrote two songs and attracted other Hindi filmmakers. Some of his other famous film songs include Aa bhi jaa (Sur), Tu is tarah se meri zindagi mein (Aap To Aise Na The) and Hosh waalon ko khabar Kya (Sarfarosh). His celebrated lyrics were also used in Aap to aise na the, Is Raat Ki Subah Nahin (1996) and Gudiya.

He wrote the title song of TV serials like Sailaab, Neem ka Ped, Jaane Kya Baat Hui and Jyoti.

He teamed up with Jagjit Singh in 1994 to bring an album named Insight, which got appreciation for its soulful poetry and music.

Shortly before his death he wrote columns for BBC Hindi website on various contemporary issues and literature.

He died in Mumbai on 8 February 2016 at the age of 78.

Booming guns of some start-ups are finally silent. After wagering all the deceits, every tricks, which they had, they have reconciled to their inglorious defeat. Hey ” Facebook Acting Institute ” , now it is known to everyone that you fabricate data of your non-existent success and post photoshopped pictures as evidence. Your skeletons have tumbled down from the hidden cupboard. People like Arvind Kejriwals and Manish Sisodias can’t survive for long.

 

सत्यमेव जयते नानृतम् ,
सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा ,
यत्र तत् सत्यस्य परमं निधानम् ॥

……………….. मुण्डक उपनिषद्

English Translation

Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out ,
by which the sages , whose desires have been completely fulfilled, reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

Ode – 5 : To Satyamev Jayate [ B ]


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE  03, 2012           11.10 P.M.

Let me make it clear in the beginning . This is not my original blog . Mr. Arsh Jaikrishan , a friend of mine , send me this on BBM . I got this today , when I finished watching the 5th episode of today’s Satyamev Jayate ” .

I was peeved at the response of some of the critics of the show . You have every right to disagree with the format and content of the show . You have every right to not watch the show .You have every right to dislike Mr. Aamir Khan as an actor  . But attacking him on personal front and on his personal life is crass , crude and vulgar .

I am happy that Mr. Arsh Jaikrishan and people like him are spreading a right and positive message . ” Satyamev Jayate “ is a path-breaking show and it must be encouraged in every possible way .

As for I am concerned , I have already written a blog on ” Satyamev Jayate ” . I am providing the link :

” Satyamev Jayate “

By

Mr. Arsh Jaikrishan

” Rather than Appreciating Aamir , Majority of Doctors are taking on his personal life and his earnings . So Let me make it very clear about the money and Sacrifices hez put into making SATYAMEVJAYATE !

1.) Aamir Khan (AKP) spent 32 cr in d making , research n promotions of SMJ.

2.) Aamir ended the contracts with 6 brands worth Rs. 116 cr.

3.) Aamir Paid 23 cr to the brands as a penalty of the breach of contract.

4.) In return he will get 46 cr (3.5 cr per episode) from Star plus , which also includes the pay of AKP team of around 500 members.

5.) He could ve easily earned 3 cr per episode by doing a quiz show

6.) Delayed the 45 cr most awaited film of 2012,Talaash.

7.) He did Satymev jayate becoz he wanted to make it and not for money.

8.) We never said that Satyamev jayate is a perfect show,its an honest effort thats it : Aamir Khan.

The Reason all these things are’nt out in media coz He is not a self praising person!

Share if You Truly Respect AAMIR KHAN’S SINCERE EFFORT. “

Ode – 5 : To Satyamev Jayate [ A ]


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MAY 30 , 2012           01.15 A.M.  

In this age of television almost all the stars of Indian silver – screen have already made their television debut . Aamir Khan was the only exception . On May 06 , 2012 he also made his TV debut with his Talk ShowSatyamev Jayate and created history .

His television show ” Satyamev Jayate “ was aired simultaneously on Star Plus and other channels within Star Network along with  D.D. National . In the history of Indian Television , it is the first show to achieve this feat . Apart from Hindi , it is dubbed in Tamil , Telugu , Malayalam , Marathi and Bengali .

Till date 4 episodes have been out and they dealt with various burning social issues :

1st Episode – May 06, 2012 –  ” Daughters Are Precious ” [Female Foeticide

2nd Episode – May 13, 2012 –  ” Break The Silence ”  [Child Sexual Abuse]

3rd Episode – May 20, 2012 – ” Marriage or Marketplace ” [Dowry] 

4th Episode – May 27 , 2012 – ” Every Life Is Precious ” [Medical Malpractices]  

6 May , 2012  - 1st Episode

6 May , 2012 – 1st Episode

13 May - 2nd Episode

13 May – 2nd Episode

As expected the show garnered 4.27 TRP . First episode was viewed by 9 crore people .Riding on the wave of public sympathy and word of mouth publicity , ” Satyamev Jayate “ , topped the popularity chart . It created positive buzz and generated public outcry on the issues it dealt with .

As expected , rivals and critics and jealous friends and die – hard nay – sayers panned the show . They started finding faults with everything related to the show .

A minister in Rajasthan government lashed at Aamir Khan and said that instead of hosting the show , he should come to Rajasthan and work for the people . May I ask what is his job ? Why is he elected ? Aamir Khan brought an issue in his notice . Instead of acting with alacrity and acting against the culprits , he is finding faults with the show .

There was some comments in the press that Aamir Khan is charging fee for hosting the show . May I ask why should he not charge his professional fee ? Instead of hosting some inane show like his contemporaries , he is hosting a show which is bringing some burning social issues for public debate .

A journalist tweeted that Aamir Khan should think about his first wife and only then talk about these issues . May I ask why is he so concerned about Aamir Khan’s first wife ? Two adults mutually decide to terminate their marriage without acrimony and bickering and moreover his first wife is not accusing Aamir Khan for cruelty or anything , then why is this journalist raking up a private issue ?

A journalist of Hindustan Times wrote that instead of making people cry , Aamir Khan should try to create laughter . 4th episode was not weepy at all . It was entertaining and at the same time informative  . Her criticism about the near perfect reaction and well – timed teary eyes also fail to impress . When you are narrating a personal tragedy , you don’t need acting skills . Tears come naturally and reaction is instantaneous . Her criticism is cussed and lacks sensitivity .

According to me above mentioned criticisms are result of some jealous minds and envious rivals . ” Satyamev Jayate “ exposed their mediocrity and they are now naked in the open . So their factotum and some paid – journos are fanning the falsehood .

There was a news item that the show failed to generate viewership and that the TRP is only 3.01 . But soon final verdict was out and now it is a known fact that the actual TRP is 4.27 . According to Television Audience measurement the show reached out to 4.96 million people . 1 lakh people tried calling Aamir Khan during the show .

Several topics related to the show were trending on twitter and were among top 5 . Even before the first episode ended , it got 2,254 tweets on micro – blogging site ,  twitter . Due to huge and unprecedented traffic the official website ; http://www.satyamevjayate.in crashed as soon as the first episode ended . On Google Trends also the show was top search in India . The show’s official page on Facebook has received more than 9,71,000 likes .

Hindustan Times conducted an online poll where 88% viewers have voted that they liked the show . 7% remained undecided and only 5% felt that the show failed to impress .

Need I say anything more ? But there were some honest and saner voices also .

Some eminent personalities like ; Siddharth Basu and Newspapers like ; Hindustan Times and Wall Street Journal have compared the show with Oprah Winfrey Show . To compare ” Satyamev Jayate “ with Oprah Winfrey Show is a great honour . I totally agree with the view .
