No one can blame Aamir if those laws and rules are not upheld six years down the line.

But I give the SMJ team complete credit for raising awareness, both actively and passively, to bring about some positive change in the society :)

I do understand that some of the reforms initiated, won't successfully pull through...

but IMO, its enough that this show at least gets people to know about national issues.

I remember watching the trailer of that Marigold Hotel movie with a friend, and they showed poverty and stuff in India.. and she was all "ugh, why do they always show the crap bits of India in movies.. I mean yeah, that bit does exist in India, but it's not everything"

It isn't everything. But it IS a huge part of India, and its so futile to deny that. We live a life of utter luxury, without even knowing that till this date, people make a living out of shoving their hands into human shit. 
We live away from India, or in big cities or whatever, without knowing that kids our age somewhere else, have to clean bathrooms and whatnot, just because they're born in a lower zaat

I think the initial popularity this show fetched, even though it has faltered, has at least let more people acknowledge ki haanji, our country is far from being perfect.

Some people love to live under a rose-tinted umbrella... truth is, we're just terribly lucky bas***ds who can afford to do so.

Couldn't agree more.

I was kicked about SMJ and thought the initial few episodes were great. Then I started losing interest because I guess I expected the show to take on a more ballsy approach to controversial topics Indians are generally hesitant to talk about.

I would have really liked to see issues that are deep-rooted (and controversial) in Indian society- like closet racism, reservation, legalisation of prostitution and same sex marriages, lack of public hygiene (they could have expanded on this in the water episode, but they didn't Sleepy), etc., be openly discussed and debated.

Instead, we had a one and a half hour show that barely skimmed a majority of topics that have already been widely discussed on other platforms (We The People, The Big Fight, etc.). SMJ also seemed to offer haphazard solutions in the end of each episode for the sake of it, topped off with a live performance. For example, in the episode about pesticides/organic farming, they briefly covered farmer suicides without even talking about Monsanto being the biggest contributor to that very problem. Confused

Anyway, I'm very happy with the initiative the show's creators/ Aamir have taken in taking up certain issues with the Government. Aamir for one needs to work on his hosting skills pronto. He's too preachy and sometimes theatrical, and he talks at the audience rather than to them.

That's a total death knell for a serious show like this. I hope the producers consider taboo issues in the second season. They need to take SMJ to another level, or it will just have to bite the dust.

Satymave jayate is a gr8 shows as it got succesful in creating awarness in aam janta against social issues like female foeticide, dowry e.t.c, but its quite sad that stars like Aamir does shows like SMJ after getting paid 3-4 crores per eps. Stars like Amitabh bachchan sir,Salman, Srk, Aamir etc are india's most influential personalties, if they do shows like SMJ,it will proably make impact.
