ख़त्म नहीं हुई है सलमान की कहानी..
http://www.bbc.co.uk/hindi/india/2015/0 ... _legend_rd
8 मई 2015


लमान ख़ान में मुझे तीन आदमी नज़र आते हैं या आज की ज़ुबान में कहें तो तीन कैमियो का मिश्रण.
वह बिना किसी जतन के ब्लॉकबस्टर फ़िल्में देते हैं. ऐसा लगता है कि लोग उन्हें चाहते हैं और आलोचक तक उनकी सफलता में कमी निकालने में असहाय महसूस करते हैं.
अमिताभ बच्चन या नसीरुद्दीन शाह अभिनय कर सकते हैं, जबकि सलमान जो हैं उसी के लिए जाने जाते हैं.
वो अपनी सहजता में उतने ही पूरे दिखते हैं, जितना रहमान या इल्लै राजा अपनी प्रतिभा के साथ. फिर भी वो सफल हैं.

एक दूसरे सलमान हैं: टीवी कार्यक्रम 'बिग बॉस' वाले सलमान. वो बड़े भाई की भूमिका निभाते हैं, जो समझदार है और कॉमन सेंस वाला होस्ट है और उनकी मौजूदगी से ही कार्यक्रम चल जाता है.
इसमें ज़्यादातर अभिनेता दूसरे दर्जे के हैं जो पहले दर्जे का होना चाहते हैं या ऐसा जताते हैं. सलमान दूसरे दर्जे के हैं और ऐसे ही रहकर ख़ुश हैं.
तीसरे सलमान वो खुद हैं: एक प्यारा आदमी जो एक चैरिटी चलाता है, अर्जुन कपूर को कई किलो वजन कम कर स्टार बनने के लिए मनाता है और एक ऐसा आदमी जो अब भी इंसान है, जिसकी सीमाएं हैं.
बुधवार को सलमान पर आए फ़ैसले से बॉलीवुड और मीडिया बावला सा हो गया और हर छोटा-मोटा वकील और पत्रकार धर्माचार्य की तरह उपदेश देने लगा

पीड़ित के परिवार की प्रतिक्रिया यह थी कि, न्याय तो ठीक है, लेकिन मुआवज़ा मिलता तो बेहतर रहता. एक स्तर पर तो फ़ैसले के साथ मामला शांत हो गया, लेकिन दूसरी ओर इससे नई मुश्किलों का पिटारा खुलने की आशंका है.
क़ानून पर कोई सवाल नहीं उठा रहा है, लेकिन लगता है कि फ़ैसले से कुछ लोग संतुष्ट नहीं हैं. ऐसा लग रहा है कि जैसे यह कहानी ठीक तरीक़े से आगे नहीं बढ़ पाई.

मैं ज़रा एक ऐसी बात बताऊं जिसमें बॉलीवुड के रंग तो हैं ही, लेकिन यह उससे कहीं बढ़कर है. यह नैतिक मरम्मत (ethical repair) का विचार है.
नैतिक मरम्मत एक ऐसी क्रिया है जिसमें अपराधी अपने अपराध का पश्चाताप करता है और उस परिवार के लिए कुछ करता है जिसका उसने नुक़्सान किया है.
मैं ख़ैरात की नहीं बल्कि असली योगदान की बात कर रहा हूँ जिसमें दरअसल सलमान फुटपाथ पर रहने वालों के लिए कुछ करते हैं, समाजसेवा के लिए नहीं बल्कि सचमुच इंसानियत के नाते, वंचित समुदाय के लिए.
यह एक ऐसी शहरी घटना है जिस पर बॉलीवुड की कई पटकथाएं आधारित रही हैं. मुझे लगता है कि सलमान ख़ान में कुछ है जो इसके काबिल है.

मुझे उम्मीद है कि यह कोई ऐसी पटकथा नहीं बनेगी जिसे उनके प्रशंसकों पर बम की तरह फेंका जाएगा.
लेकिन मुझे लगता है कि सलमान खान की कहानी अभी ख़त्म नहीं होने जा रही. वो हमारे अंदर इस क़दर हिस्से बन चुके हैं कि उन्हें आसानी से नहीं भुलाया जा सकता.

I watched Lagaan. I really liked it, I can understand why it's highly rated on IMDb.

I don't know if this is a newbie opinion (I can't say I've seen many Bollywood movies) but I felt like the songs felt a bit different from other Bollywood movies I've seen. I mean their style. They sort of felt more "sophisticated". Maybe because the theme of the movie was so serious?

I watched the parts on either side of the intermission on different days so it didn't feel too long, either. Had I tried to watch it in one go would probably have been a bad idea -- my Western attention deficit would have kicked in and I would have been like "hit the damn cricket ball already dammit!" :lol:

Hey Varlisintu, I'm glad you liked it! The songs were composed by AR rahman who is known for doing serious songs that go with the film. Check out the soundtrack of Dil Se it is by him and the songs are quite serious. Many older Hindi films have these types of songs as well.

Lagaan is one of my favorite Bollywood movies so far. :) I think of it as one that has something for everybody.

About the only thing I don't like is Aamir Khan in the leading role. He's never been my fave and is clearly too old for the part. But without him, the film would never have been made. And there are worse choices (like Salman Khan).

It was the first Hindi movie I'd ever seen with a plot that actually made sense to me. :lol: Apparently, all I ever did for the first two years of my life was watch Indian movies (not only in Hindi and Malayalam but also in Tamil, Telugu, and for all I remember now Kannada and some other languages, too), carry the videotapes around in stacks that were too big for my arms, and drop them everywhere. :P I couldn't make any sense of the plot of any of these movies at the time and probably didn't even care because songs. I think the only movie I might have seen before that with Aamir Khan in it was Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, and all I remember from that movie was the song "Papa Kehte Hain" because my mom liked it and wanted me to sing it for some reason.

The one film I actually think he's good in is Saawariya. (It probably helps that the hero is Ranbir Kapoor, a colt-faced set of abs in search of a personality.) In fact, he's the best thing about that film next to Rani Mukerji.

Yeah maybe because he isn't in it that much. He used to be better in his younger days and actually kind of did some different movies now he just does complete crap. He just got in a feud with John Abraham about their films releasing the same day, which made me lose any little respect I had for him. I can't understand why this guy films break records, there are really good BW films that get really overlooked because of morons like him.

He is a diva. He has no reason to be either, because he has no acting talent. I read things about Christian Bale blowing up on set and stuff but at least that guy can actually act. Salman does stupid films that a two year old could write. I could probably predict his films without evening watching them. The best Bollywood actors are the most underrated ones.
