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.

…………………………………… Muṇḍaka Upaniṣad

Komal Nahta Komal Nahta @KomalNahta31 Mar

Expected loss in HIMMATWALA: Rs. 20 crore at least. May be more!

Komal Nahta Komal Nahta @KomalNahta5 Apr

CHASHME BADDOOR is a fair entertainer for the young at heart. Read my complete review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/chashme-baddoor-review/ …

 Komal Nahta Komal Nahta @KomalNahta5 Apr

For those of u who want to read my review of CHASHME BADDOOR in Hindi, u can do so at http://www.bbc.co.uk/hindi/entertainment/2013/04/130405_chashme_baddoorreview_pkp.shtml …

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!

        #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!

Vidur’s Film Diary – March 2011


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 01 , 2011                   12 . 3O A.M.

After successful January 2011 , February was quite dull for the industry .  And March was simply disastrous . First quarter is gone without any great success. No big releases because of the World Cup , no great success because of the bad films. There were just 6 releases in March and that too insignificant ones .

To illustrate my point of view and to show the latest trends in the industry, I am reproducing  few relevant tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta :
