MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           August 28 , 2016           10.30 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : With this post, Vidur’s Film Diary enters in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence. ]

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

In the era of falsehood, Vidur Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, Vidur Acting Institute has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go through the below mentioned facts of my success story and can check and verify them.

But do check the tall claims of so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. Hold a second, they can even claim that they are the “Best Acting Trainers of the World”. My God ! anything is possible in the unethical world of ACTING TRAINING in India.

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.

 

VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE

SUCCESS RATE : 2012 to 2015

Success Rate : 2012 – 2013 = 40 %

Success Rate : 2013 – 2015 = 55 %

Success Rate : 2015= = = = = 62.35 %

Obituary :

===============

Omprakash Sonik :

—————————-

Omprakash Sonik , better known as Omi, of the well-known duo Sonik-Omi passed away on July 07, 2016 in a private hospital following cardiac arrest.

A widower, he was 77 and is survived by his son Som and daughter Sudha.

 Omi was the nephew of the blind music director Master Sonik and together they formed the noted Sonik-Omi team which provided music to nearly 125 Bollywood movies in the 1950-1980s.

Born and raised in Sialkot (now in Pakistan), they moved to India after Partition in 1947 and lived mostly in Delhi.

In 1950, the visually challenged but great singer Master Sonik arrived in Mumbai with his young nephew in tow, hoping to make a career in the film industry which was on the threshold of what was later known as ‘golden era’ of its music.

With many stalwarts already holding sway over the listening audiences, the Sonik-Omi duo faced an uphill struggle, fighting near-starvation at times, Omi even joined in a female chorus group to afford a square meal and the uncle-nephew lived in a tiny slum room on the outskirts of Thane.

In the early 1950s, Master Sonik got a break to direct music for films like Mamta, Mehfil and Ishwar Bhakti, but their music failed to catch the ears of the listeners.

They were reduced to near-paupery and doing odd jobs merely to survive, till a few years later when the late Madan Mohan offered Master Sonik the crucial job of music arranger and the late S. D. Burman also followed suit.

The young Omi also got an opportunity to assist the legendary composer Roshan for films like Taj Mahal, Aarti, Barsaat Ki Raat and many others.

The big break came in 1965 from film-maker G. L. Rawal of Rawal Films, for his new venture, Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya and the musical track composed by the Sonik-Omi team became a rage. AAJA RE PYAR PUKARE ……… by Lata Mangeshkar / DIL NE PHIR YAAD KIYA …… by Mohammed Rafi , Mukesh & Suman Kalyanpur / KALIYON NE GHOONGHAT KHOLE …….by Mohammed Rafi / YE DIL HAI MOHABBAT KA PYASA ……. by Mukesh / LO CHEHRA SURKH SHARAB HUA …….. by Mohammed Rafi are still loved by music connoisseurs.

A couple of years later, Rawal offered them for Aabroo whose music also proved immensely popular and Sonik-Omi became a noted name in Bollywood.

Later, they composed music for films like “Mahua” (with the haunting Dono ne kiya tha pyar magar), “Dharma” (the famous qawwali Raaz ki baat keh doon to, jaane mehfil me phir kya ho), “Raftaar” (Sansar Hai ik Nadiya, Dukh Sukh Do Kinare Hain),  Truck Driver, Mehfil, Beti, Dharti Ki God Mein, Umar Qaid, Chowki No. 11 (which had the memorable hit number sung by Shobha Gurtu, Kahin ho na mohalle me halla) and Ladki Pasand Hai.

Over the years, the uncle-nephew pair made a formidable reputation for themselves with compositions in over 125 movies.

While Master Sonik passed away in 1993, Omi continued to compose music and his last musical track was for the film Biwi No. 2 in 2000, after which he eased into retirement.

In the past few years, Omi largely remained away from Bollywood but composed certain non-film and private albums, religious music and other genres of music.

 

Mubarak Begum  :

—————————

Mubarak Begum, an acclaimed play back singer started her career with light music recitals performed for All India Radio. Her career as a playback singer began in 1949 with the Indian, Hindi-language film Aaiye. It was the Indo-Pakistani composer Nashad who gave Mubarak Begum her first break. The first song she recorded for films was “Mohe Aane Lagi Angrayi, Aja Aja Balam” (Aaiye, 1949). She also sang a duet with the then upcoming Lata Mangeshkar in the same film. A major hit in her career was the song “Kabhi Tanhaiyon Mein Yun” for composer Snehal Bhatkar in Kidar Sharma‘s film Hamari Yaad Aayegi which is, till this day, regarded as a classic rendition.

Mubarak Begum died on 18 July 2016 at her residence in Jogeshwari after a prolonged illness.

Farooque Sheikh : Har Mulaqat Ka Anjam Judai Kyon Hai?

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 06, 2014           00.15 A. M.

Farooque Sheikh

25 March 1948 − 27 December 2013

I was at Vaitheeswarankoil in the Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu for my annual vacation / pilgrimage from December 24 to December 31. On 27th when I checked my twitter account I was shocked beyond belief. It was full of the news of Farooque Sheikh’s untimely death. 65 is no age to leave the world. But alas! it happened in the case of Farooque Sheikh. He was in Dubai with his family for New Year vacation when the end came. He died of cardiac arrest.

During " Gaman " Days

During ” Gaman ” Days

My first memory of Farooque Sheikh goes back to 1978. I saw ” Gaman ” in the Amar Jyoti Talkies of Deoria, my home town. It’s swan song ” seene me jalan, aankhon me toofan sa kyon hai ; is shaher me har shakhs pareshan sa kyon hai ……. ” is still fresh in my memory. When I came out of the hall, I was amused. I felt that Farooque Sheikh was an unusual kind of leading man. He was not a typical Hindi film hero but his screen persona endured in my memory. After ” Gaman ” , I watched highly successful ” Noorie ” and the image of Farooque Sheikh became a permanent part of my life. Then came ” Umrao Jaan ” and ” Chashme Buddoor “, both in 1981 and this unconventional hero, with his wonderful diction, pleasant demeanor and smiling face became one of my all time favourites.

His notable films are ; ” Garam Hawa ” [ 1973 ] , ” Shatranj Ke Khiladi ” [ 1977 ] , ” Gaman ” [ 1978 ] , ” Noorie ” [ 1979 ] , ” Umrao Jaan ” [ 1981 ] , ” Chashme Buddoor ” [ 1981 ] , ” Saath Saath ” [ 1982 ] , ” Bazaar ” [ 1982 ] , ” Katha ” [ 1983 ] , ” Rang Birangi ” [ 1983 ] , ” Faasale ” [ 1985 ] , ” Ek Pal ” [ 1986 ] , ” Biwi Ho To Aisi ” [ 1988 ] , ” Maya Memsaab ” [ 1992 ] , ” Lahore ” [ 2009 ] , ” Shanghai ” [ 2012 ] , ” Listen ….. Amaya ” [ 2013 ] , ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ] , & ” Club 60 ” [ 2013 ]. His last film ” Youngistan ” is yet to get released.

He won the 2010 National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for Lahore.

In the late 90s, Farooq Sheikh acted in a number of television serials. Most famous of them are ” Chamatkar ” on Sony and ” Ji Mantriji ” on Star plus and ” Shrikant “, which was aired from 1985 to 1986. He compered in the Binny Double or Quits Quiz contest which was telecast over Vividh Bharathi. His also anchored the iconic TV show, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai (Season 1).

He performed on stage in famous productions such as Tumhari Amrita [ 1992 ], alongside Shabana Azmi, directed by Feroz Abbas Khan. This poignant playTumhari Amrita  ” [ 1992 ] completed its 20-year run on 26 February, 2012. A sequel to this play was staged in India in 2004 titled “Aapki Soniya” with Farooq Sheikh and Sonali Bendre as main leads. He also directed ” Aazar Ka Khwab “, an adaptation of Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion in 2004.

I became an addict of his TV show, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai (Season 1). When I watched him on stage alongside Shabana Azmi, in famous productions ” Tumhari Amrita ” [ 1992 ], directed by Feroz Abbas Khan, I was mesmerized.

During " Tumhari Amrita " Days

During ” Tumhari Amrita ” Days

Years ago I played a small part in a play called ” SAARE JAHAN SE ACHCHHA “, Director by Aamir Raza Hussain . Farooque Sahab was supposed to be the narrator of the play. He couldn’t do the play because of some prior commitments and I lost this opportunity to be with him on the stage.

It is sad that he went too soon. And he left us when he was on the comeback trail.

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I offer my condolences to the family of Farooque Sheikh and all the near and dear ones.

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to join them in this hour of grief.

May his soul rest in peace!

[ I have taken list of his films, TV serials and plays from Wikipedia. I express profound gratitude. ]

Month of November 2013 will always be special for me . In the 24th year of my acting training career , I gave one more star to the Indian film industry in November 2013 . Urvashi Rautela is my latest student to hit the box office with her debut film ” Singh Saab The Great “ and join the film world .

It earned 100.00 crore in just 4 days . It finally earned 243.24 crore in India and more than 300.00 crore worldwide . It has become the highest grosser of Hindi film industry till date . It is another feather in my cap as it has 03 of my finest students .
” Satya 2 “ disappointed . ” Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela “ earned handsomely at the box office . It is the latest entrant in the 100 crore club of Hindi films .
” Singh Saab The Great ” was a moderate hit andGori Tere Pyaar Mein was not so successful .

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2013

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST  11, 2013          11.20 P.M.

Tweets :

 

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :
  1. #BhaagMilkhaBhaag is fast racing towards the 100 crore mark. Overall, Super Hit [Blockbuster in North circuits]

     

    1. RAMAIYA 1st week actual net collections: Rs. 22.2 crore. D-DAY 1st week figure: Rs. 15.75 crore. BMB reaches Rs. 82 crore in 2 weeks. Wow!

    2. LUV U SONIYO fails to get the audience’s love or attention. Read my review of the film, starring two new faces, at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/luv-u-soniyo-review/ …

    3. ISSAQ is too boring to make people fall in love with it! Read my review of the Prateik-Amyra starrer at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/issaq-review/ …

    4. All releases of today open to dull houses. Shows of some films cancelled at some centres due to absence of audience!

    5. BAJATEY RAHO, a comedy thriller, is a dull fare, devoid of good comedy and exciting thrills. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/bajatey-raho-review/ …

First day net collection of #Commando Rs 3.75 cr. & #NautankiSaala Rs. 3.25
  1. Ek thi Dayaan: fri – 5.25 cr. Collections on the lower side considering that it stars Emraan Hashmi.

  1. #Himmatwala collected approx. Rs 44.89 cr nett in Week 1. Rejected!

  2. #MereDadKiMaruti [3rd Week]: 1.05 cr to 1.10 cr. Grand total: approx Rs. 12.20 cr to 12.25 cr.

  3. #ChashmeBaddoor is off to a super start in India. North India and Mumbai circuits leading. Even mass-dominated belt very good!

  4. #ChashmeBaddoor *early estimates* should cross 5.5 cr. May even touch 6 cr. Data still pouring in. Super start!

        1. One of those rare Fridays when two new releases have notched solid numbers. Good films can co-exist, #Aashiqui2 and #IronMan3 prove it!

        2. #IronMan3 is on a record-smashing spree. Numbers being compiled, but it’s a stupendous start. Biggest Hollywood opener? Let’s wait!

        3. #Aashiqui2 has had a fantastic start. Though numbers still being compiled, it’s one of the biggest starts for a film starring newcomers!

I congratulate all my above mentioned students on behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . May they shine in their chosen field . May , through their endeavour , VIDUR Acting Institute will one day become one of the most famous acting institutes of the world .
