2011: New breed of directors arrive in Bollywood
Press Trust Of India
New Delhi, December 25, 2011

Bollywood tasted fresh blood this years with as many as 30 directors making their foray into films. Newcomers like Kiran Rao, Sohan Roy, Luv Ranjan, Bejoy Nambiar, Abhinay Deo, Parvin Dabas and Nila Madhab Panda impressed audiences with their new take on movie-making. Dhobi Ghat,
Bollywood star Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao's directorial debut, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, was critically acclaimed for the director's new vision towards Mumbai life.

Despite the film being unconventional, it was marketed and promoted well, all thanks to Kiran and her spouse, who also starred in the film. The film's budget was about Rs 10 crore and it went on to make more.

Delhi BellyAbhinay Deo, an advertising professional, got two chances this year, first with Game for Farhan Akhtar's production house and then Delhi Belly for Aamir Khan's productions. Although he failed in his first attempt, he made sure that nothing goes wrong with his second venture.

The comedy, which made news for being "irreverent" with its expletive-ridden dialogues, was an instant success as it delved into an untapped and brand new terrain, coupled with superb performances and chartbusting music.

Southern film director Siddique made his Bollywood debut by remaking his Malayalam hit Bodyguard in Hindi starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor. The film received tremendous response at the domestic box office as well as in the overseas market, making it one of the biggest hits of the year.

Dam999Debutante director Sohan Roy's Dam 999, an English 3-D UAE-Indian co-production, re-ignited the Mallaperiyar dam fight between the Tamil Nadu and Kerala governments and is banned in the former state.

But the film is making the right ripples internationally after being included in the list of films eligible for a Best Picture Oscar nomination, besides its soundtrack being in the longlist of the Best Original Score.

Stanley Ka Dabba saw Amol Gupte behind the camera for the first time after his riveting performance in Kaminey and Phas Gaye Re Obama last year. The low-budget film attracted positive reviews from critics across India.

Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor also made his Bollywood directorial debut with 'Mausam', pitted to be one of the much-awaited films of the year, with his son actor Shahid Kapoor in the lead.

Mausam created quite a frenzy before its release. It's cinematography and Shahid's performance were praised but the film did not receive good reviews and failed to rake in the moolah.

MausamCritically acclaimed short film director Bejoy Nambiar moved to the big screen with Shaitan produced by Anurag Kashyap. The thriller starring Rajeev Khandelwal and Kalki Koechlin, managed to impress critics and the audience alike. Nambiar is currently working on his next, a gangster-comedy film called David.

Prominent Tollywood film director and producer Puri Jagannath also ventured into Bollywood with Amitabh Bachchan starrer Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap. The film saw Bachchan in an all new avatar as a funky old man but the audience and critics did not care much for the experiment. As a result, the film did not create magic in the Box Office, despite extensive promotion and innovative marketing strategies.

Some youth-oriented films by debutante directors found takers. Choreographer turned director Remo D'souza's film F.A.L.T.U had nothing much or nothing new to offer, except for a pacy party song 'Char baj gaye', but it proved to be a surprise hit among youngsters.

Director Luv Ranjan's 'bromantic' film Pyaar Ka Punchnama, with a bunch of fresh faces, was another surprise hit this year. Ranjan along with his producer Abhishek Pathak is planning a sequel to the film.

Chillar PartyHorror-thriller film Ragini MMS opened doors for Pavan Kriplani in Bollywood. The combination of scandal and horror worked perfectly for this Ekta Kapoor-produced film, which recovered its cost within two days of its release.

Chillar Party, a children's film directed by Nitesh Tiwari and Vikas Bahl and produced by Salman Khan under his SKBH Productions (Salman Khan Being Human) became popular among not just kids but grown ups as well. A story of great determination presented in an entertaining way made the film a good watch.

Another children's film, I Am Kalam by director Nila Madhab Panda, earned international acclaim even before its release here. The child star of the film, Harsh Mayar, also won a National Award for the film.

Mere Brother Ki DulhanSome films with A-listers failed to impress viewers. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan saw Yash Raj Films give a cast comprising of Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif and a sizeable budget to debutant director Ali Abbas Zafar, but he could not create wonders. Although the film was declared a hit, it did not have much to talk about. Zafar is also set to direct another film with the same actors for another Yash Raj production.

With Desi Boyz, comedy king David Dhawan's son Rohit Dhawan made his directorial debut. Although the film had a star cast comprising Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, it was panned by critics.

With Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande, actor Parvin Dabas forayed into direction and the flim received critical acclaim. Raghav Dhar's My Friend Pinto, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhnsali sank without a trace.

There were more disappointments than achievements for debutante directors this year with films like Deepa Sahi's Tere Mere Phere, Sahil Sangha's Love, BreakUps, Zindagi, Satyajit Bhatkal's Zokkomon, Roshan Abbas's Always Kabhi Kabhi, Barnali Ray Shukla's Kucch Luv Jaisaa, Mrigdeep Singh Lamba's Teen Thay Bhai failing at the box office.

Sach Ka Samna: Rajeev Khandelwal makes it workEmbarrassedEmbarrassed

The repercussions on the lives of the participants of the popular game show could be devastating, but the host ensures that each one of his subjects goes back as a better personBig smileBig smile

While many people manage to spend their entire lives without facing their inner demons,TongueLOL there are a few who choose to go through a baptism by fire – and that, on national television. The second season of Sach Ka Samna has just begun and Rajeev Khandelwal, the host of the show has already managed to impressed us as always! EmbarrassedEmbarrassedEmbarrassed


The participants are everyday people, the 'aam-khaas aadmi' that we all know and are, with lives that are out on display to the rest of the ready-to-mock world. The USP of the game show is that while it confronts its participants with their deepest and darkest secrets, it doesn't judge them for being who they are. Sach Ka Samna is the pot of gold that television writers dream about – it has the common man with uncommon problems, lots of family drama, a risk that can change life for good or bad and huge prize money which may or may not be worth the grilling.

Rajeev Khandelwal gives the show a dignity that saves it from being borderline scandalous.Approve  Khandelwal empathises with the participants, makes them feel at home,Smile  connects with them, SmileSmile encourages them and doesn't get judgmental.SmileSmile

He takes a neutral stance towards what they have to say and acts as a catalyst for them to face their demons and go back as richer human beings, monetarily and spiritually. SmileSmile

This show is exactly what the country needs, thanks to the corruption and other evils that have seeped into the system. Sach Ka Samna might not be 'entertaining' in the literal sense, but provides a reality check when we need it the most.SmileSmileSmile

Rajeev Khandelwal is back with the second season of Sach Ka Samna and he is gearing up to brace controversies.

This time around the reality show is focusing on the flavour of the season-corruption. The contestants will be asked questions on corruption in their professional as well as personal lives. Naturally, it is bound to make people uncomfortable and eventually lead to controversies. The show will most definitely ruffle some feathers.

The contestants for once will have the chance to admit-and in a way unburden themselves-the corrupt practices adopted by them in order to survive in the game called life. "Since this will highlight the loopholes in a particular system, there is every possibility that people will not be too happy," Rajeev said.

In the last season, the show was based on a different format where contestants would come on the show and confess if they have ever been infidel to their partner. However, this year, owing to the controversies created by the moral police, the makers have diverted the focus to corruption that the common man has to resort to in his everyday life.

"The idea behind the show is to judge the daring of a person to confess about his personal or professional life. The show is not meant to promote sleazy or titillate the audience. This year, we are focusing on corruption in our system so that it induces the audience to think," he added. As of now, the show has seen professionals such as lawyers discussing corruption in the judiciary and a doctor revealing the corrupt practices in medicine.

In one of the episodes, a female professional came on the show and confessed to the short-cuts she had taken to be successful in her career.
