Celebrating ” Gulaab Gang ”


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH 10 , 2014           01.20 A.M.

I was eagerly waiting for ” Gulaab Gang “ to release . I am an admirer of Madhuri Dixit and desperately wanted to see her on-screen with Juhi Chawla . But the true cause of my excitement and wait was something else .

” Gulaab Gang “ will always be an important film for me because it features two students of mine . One is Tanvi Rao , who is an actor and an accomplished danseuse and the second student is Pawni Pandey , who is the playback singer in the film and her song ” ………………… Sharm Laaj Moh Maar Kar , Hata De Ye Pallu Jhaad Kar ……………. “  is filmed on Madhuri Dixit .

So the wait was on and it ended on March 07 , 2014 , when the much awaited film ” Gulaab Gang “ was released .

Tanvi Rao and her father Shri Hari Prasad ji visited me two years back , when Tanvi was signed for ” Gulaab Gang ” . I was stunned to see a small girl sitting in front of me and talking to me in supreme confidence . I was shocked to know that she was going to be a co-actor in the film and will perform with Madhuri Dixit . Time was less and she was in Mumbai only for few days . It was a challenge for me and as usual I don’t shun challenges and responsibilities . So I started training her immediately .

I must make it clear in writing that Tanvi , the always smiling cute girl , is very hard-working student and extremely disciplined artiste . I thank her parents for inculcating this culture in her and giving her such great values and ethics , which is fast vanishing from the present day generation . She completed the training and along with her father , went back to her native place Mangalore . But they always remained in touch .

Tanvi , along with her father , came to meet me again and seek my blessings before the start of the shooting . It is so heart warming . It is so unlike some of the students , who make it a point not to acknowledge their teachers before shooting or after the release of their films . Tanvi and her father were full of respect and gratitude , though I had only done my job . Yet they came to me to seek my blessings . It brought tears in my eyes . I was overwhelmed .

I must make it clear that apart from acting in ” Gulaab Gang “ , Tanvi Rao is an accomplished dancer and she has toured the world for her highly successful dance performances on stage . She has won many awards .

My second student in ” Gulaab Gang “ is Pawni Pandey , who has sung the song ” ………………… Sharm Laaj Moh Maar Kar , Hata De Ye Pallu Jhaad Kar ……………. “  . She is currently getting trained in the Batch No. 82 of  VIDUR Acting Institute .

In the Silver Jubilee year of my Acting Training career , ” Gulaab Gang “ is the 4th film in 5 months in which my 5 students made debut . 5 debuts in just 5 months is incredible . The list is envious .

Urvashi Rautela , Singh Saab The Great & A Poetic Justice


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 28 , 2013           07.10 P.M.

URVASHI RAUTELA ; Miss Universe India 2012 / Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2011 World / Miss Asian supermodel 2011 / Miss Teen India 2009

All the above mentioned titles belong to Urvashi Rautela , my student , who just made her debut in ” Singh Saab The Great “ opposite Sunny Deol . The movie is directed by Anil Sharma , who earlier made Gadar – Ek Prem Katha ” [ 2001 ] .

Urvashi Rautela - Batch No. 68

Urvashi Rautela – Batch No. 68

She was sent to me by Rikku ji and joined my acting institute in November 2012 and was in batch no. 68 . When she joined , she was on the verge of signing the film ” Singh Saab The Great ” . There was no time for the stipulated 4 months course . She had just 2 months . So I told her to attend morning and evening both the batches . To my amazement, she did that dutifully and completed the course . Sun or rain she used to come for the class religiously and worked hard , worked very diligently .

Batch No. 68

Batch No. 68

When shooting started she got busy in that . In November 2013 I read that the film is complete and one day suddenly I got the message and was given a link of the title song of her film . I watched the song and was greatly impressed . It was spectacular .

Last week she invited me for the trial of her film ” Singh Saab The Great “ at Sunny Super Sound . I watched the film and liked it . I was particularly impressed by her bewitching screen presence and confident acting . She was opposite Sunny Deol and she is much younger also , still there was no trace of nervousness or discomfort .

” Singh Saab The Great “ got released on November 22 , 2013 and got positive reviews . I am posting relevant tweet from the twitter-handle of trade analyst Taran Adarsh :

#SSTG review: Clapworthy dialogue, undercurrent of emotions should appeal to those who relish desi fares! http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/moviemicro/criticreview/id/549451 …

To know about Urvashi Rautela , you can click the above mentioned link and read about her debut making film and about her performance .

Along with ” Singh Saab The Great “ another big film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein was also released on the same date . But that Karan Johar film was rejected by the critics and public alike . ” Singh Saab The Great “ had only Sunny Deol while ” Gori Tere Pyaar Mein “ had Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan . Punit Malhotra directed this film , while the music was provided by Vishal-Shekhar . Karan Johar’s name was also associated with the film .

Incidentally Kareena Kapoor , Imran Khan , Punit Malhotra ( Director ) and Shekhar Ravjiani ( Music Director Vishal-Shekhar ) of ” Gori Tere Pyaar Mein “ are my students too . I was praying for their success also . But ” Singh Saab The Great “ is special to me and will always remain special because it stars Urvashi Rautela . She is the first student of VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE  to hit the Hindi Film World . I am not obliged or forced to share her success with anyone else .

For any newcomer , success of the debut film is very important . I don’t want to brag about the collections of ” Singh Saab The Great “ . I would only post few postings from a website : http://www.koimoi.com :

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

1 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Friday Box Office Collections

November 24th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its opening day at the box office kicked off with a good start, better than this Friday’s other release [ Gori Tere Pyaar mein ] . Mainly a single screen film, the film on its 1st Friday made an earning in the range of 5.50 crores to 6 crores, as per early estimates.

The film with great mass value fared the best in U.P, Delhi and Punjab circuits. Being set in the same region, the reliability factor will work in the favor. Though the film’s performance was dismal in Southern states and Bengal, good performance in Bihar, Rajasthan and C.I will help the film’s box office tempo.

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

2 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Saturday Box Office Collections

November 24th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Saturday showed a marginal pick up at the box office. According to early estimates, the film earned in the range of 10 crores to 12 crores on Saturday. While the film’s first day performance wasn’t exemplary, this one was specifically fashioned keeping in mind tastes of single screen audiences. The film has so far earned in the range of 15 crores to 17 crores at the domestic box office. Though the official figures are still being compiled, the numbers will remain in the same range.

Anil Sharma and Sunny Deol’s association has always worked wonders at the box office. This time too, the duo have tried to create magic by keeping the film simple and impactful. Though the box office performance of the film won’t be mesmeric, it will surely be on the better side.

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

3 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Weekend Box Office Collections

November 25th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great made 16.25 Crores on its first weekend at the domestic box office. The movie has done pretty well compared to the other release this weekend Gori Tere Pyaar Mein!

The movies daily breakdown for the 1st weekend is as follows:

Friday: 5.50 Crores

Saturday: 5 Crores

Sunday: 5.75 Crores

With Sunny Deol’s brilliant stunt execution on-screen, the film has a rustic appealing flavor to it which is making it ring with most in mass-based circuits of Punjab, U.P, Delhi-NCR, C.I-Berar and even Rajasthan. Though the film failed dismally in the Southern States as well as West Bengal, it can be expected to hold on well on the weekdays for its popularity in the single screens.

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

4 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Monday Box Office Collections

November 26th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Monday at the box office saw a customary weekday drop in its numbers. The film which has been faring substantially well so far went on to make 2.75 crores on its 1st Monday. Now, the film’s domestic total rests at 19 crores after the lapse of four days at the box office.

Being a mass catering venture, Singh Saab The Great scored over the other release because of its great hold over single screens. Performing well in many circuits, the film’s primary target at the moment will be recovering its investment from the box office.

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

6 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Tuesday Box Office Collections

1 hour ago by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Tuesday again witnessed a 10% drop in its numbers as it made only 2 crores at the box office. With that the film’s total domestic collections now rests at 21 crores at the domestic box office.

Though the film saw a decent beginning, trade insiders were hopeful that due to Sunny Deol‘s presence and the film’s strong ability to ring with the single screen audiences, the film will fare well. However, Singh Saab The Great could not soar up to its expected amount because of the overpowering performance of Ramleela remained consistent in both single screens and multiplexes even in its second week.

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

The film was made with a moderate budget of 30 crores . And it garnered 21 crores in just 5 days . It is on the verge of becoming a moderate hit .

Singh Saab The Great : daily breakdown for the 1st weekend is as follows:

Friday : 5.50 Crores

Saturday : 5.00 Crores

Sunday : 5.75 Crores

Monday : 2.75 Crores

Tuesday : 2.00 Crores

Now, the film’s domestic total rests at 21.00 crores .

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

As an acting trainer / acting tutor I am proud and feeling happy for Urvashi Rautela . Apart from her , ” Singh Saab The Great “ , has 2 more students of mine . They are Alan Kapoor and Asseem Merchant . Co-producer of the film Dhaval Gada is also my student . But as I said earlier , Urvashi Rautela is the fist student of my new dispensation . I am very happy for her and satisfied with the results .

I am also satisfied and happy because ” Singh Saab The Great “ did offer some poetic justice to my detractors . Some upstarts , who never miss a chance to denigrate me , always make false , fake , preposterous and misleading claims about their non-existent and imaginary success . With , ” Singh Saab The Great “ I celebrate the debut of its leading lady and main female protagonist Urvashi Rautela , who is my student and with the same film , they , the GAALI GURUS  of Facebook Acting School , are celebrating 2 blink-and-miss roles of their students . It is poetic justice . It is God’s way of showing them their place under the sun . The repositories of  the ” craft ” , the crafty craftsmen have fallen flat . I congratulate GAALI GURUS  for their blink and miss success . May they always achieve such negligible milestones !

The Date November 22 , 2013 , The Film , ” Singh Saab The Great “ and The New Star on the Horizon Urvashi Rautela will always be etched in my mind till my last breath .

” Singh Saab The Great “ settles down dust and makes matter clear . Since the release of , ” Singh Saab The Great “ there is virtual deluge of old students to my new office . They must have watched the writing on the wall .

Insignia of Brand VIDUR

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I congratulate Urvashi Rautela for her debut and success .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to wish her well in her glorious journey ahead .

May she shine radiantly and reach the zenith of stardom .

[ I have quoted extensively from the twitter-handle of Taran Adarsh and from the website http://www.koimoi.com . I express my gratitude . ]

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST  11, 2013          11.20 P.M.
Month of July 2013 will always be associated with  ” Bhaag Milkha Bhaag ” . The film got rave reviews and was a winner at the box office too .
A new face , Girish Kumar , also came into limelight this month with  ” Ramaiya Vastavaiya ” . This scion of Tips , made his debut with the film . He was praised for his acting skills and the film did decent business at the box office .

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/ …

My Association With ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 16 , 2013           01.55 A.M.

” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ got released in the last week of May 2013 and it took the nation by storm . It was , though , expected to do good business at the box office but success of this gigantic proportion was not expected .

It collected 62.11 crore in the opening weekend itself . It went on to collect 100 crore in the first week of its release and now it is the 2nd fastest 100 crore earner till date . Its overseas weekend collection stands at 22.10 crore . It is Ranbir Kapoor‘s biggest opener in overseas . It is the biggest opener of 2013 till date .

It is the 3rd biggest all-time grosser in the history of Hindi cinema .

Top 3 grossers in India: #3Idiots – 202 cr, #EkThaTiger – 199 cr, #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani – 155.28 cr [still counting].

Because of the humongous success of ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ , Ranbir Kapoor has become the biggest star in overseas after 3 Khans ; Shah Rukh Khan , Salman Khan and Aamir Khan .

I have every reason to celebrate this success . My name appears in the titles of the film .  I am billed as Diction Coach . My elder son Abhinav Chaturvedi’s name is also there in the credits .

I spent almost a month in Manali with the unit . Ranbir Kapoor is my old student . During this period I worked extensively with Kalki Koechlin and briefly with some others stars .

It has become the norm for acting trainers to revel in fake successes . Revellers beg their friends to promote their film on social networking sites so that they get more shows . And in spite of the limited shows , they brag about its so-called stupendous success . If a film collecting a paltry 50 Lakh is cause to revel for revellers , then I should be ecstatic  because ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ is the 3rd highest grosser of all time . At the time of writing of this blog it has garnered 155.28 crore and it is still going strong .

To present its step by step and day-to-day success , I am re-producing some relevent tweets from the twitter-handle of Shri Taran Adarsh , one of the most respected film journalist of our country . It is for the sceptics , who love to blow their cacophonous trumpets :

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE  07, 2013          08.30 P.M.
Our Success Ratio in MAY , 2013
175 %
[ 15 ACTORS / 01 Director / 01 E.P. / 01 Music Director
Working in 11 RELEASED FILMS  ]
Month of May 2013 is important for Indian cinema . On May , 1913 first full-length feature filmRaja Harishchandra was released in Coronation Cinema , Girgaon , Mumbai [ then Bombay ] . India cinema celebrates its 100 years of existence this month .
It is sad that in the year when Indian cinema is celebrating its 100th years , world of Indian films lost 5 luminaries in this month .
It was not a very significant month either for Hindi films as for as box office collections are concerned . Out of all 11 released films , only ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ hits the bull’s-eye . ” Shootout At Wadala ” , ” Go Goa Goneand ” Aurangzeb “ were average hits . Rest 07 were flops .

Tweets

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Komal Nahta , Mr. Taran Adarsh , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :
  1. SHOOTOUT AT WADALA opening in single-screens good, picked up very well in later shows.Opening in many multiplexes below the mark.

  2. SAW has lots for masses in Mahrshtra (mainly)but little for women,families & classes.Not universal.Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/shootout-at-wadala-review/ …

  3. BOMBAY TALKIES is well-intentioned but with bleak chances at the b.o. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/bombay-talkies-review/ …

    1. #GoGoaGone collected Rs. 4.25 cr on Sat & Rs. 3.75 cr on Fri (approx). Total around Rs. 8 cr for two days….

    3. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a highly entertaining film which will set the b.o. on fire. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/yeh-jawaani-hai-deewani-review/ …

    4. #ShootoutAtWadala Fri 10.1 cr… Amongst the top openers of the year!

    5. #Gippi is straight from the heart. Brings back childhood memories. Sweet, simple, emotionally engaging, heart-warming cinema.

        #Shree movie review: Has a fascinating premise, but the erratic writing plays the spoilsport! http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/moviemicro/criticreview/id/590335 …

        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!

P. B.Sreenivas  : 

——————————-

A Legendary playback singer P. B. Sreenivas a.k.a. PBS died on April 14, 2013 in Chennai . He made his début in 1952 in Gemini’s Hindi film “ Mr Sampat ”, where his song “Aji hum Bharat ki naari”, a duet with Geeta Dutt, became popular.

He sang his most popular duet in Hindi “Chanda Se Hoga Wo Pyaara” with Lata Mangeshkar in the film “ Main Bhi Ladki Hoon ” in 1964 . Years later , after a gap of 37 years , he again came to Hindi film and sang super-hit number ” Kaisi Hai Ye Rut Ki Jisme Phool Banke Dil Khile ” in ” Dil Chahta Hai ” [ 2001 ] .

Though PBS had hit numbers in all the languages that he sang, it was in the Kannada Film Industry that he sang the highest number of songs and delivered the highest number of hits. P. B. Sreenivas ruled the Kannada Industry for over three decades and was the voice for Super Star Dr. Rajkumar .
