Aamir Khan , the perfectionist , the mega star of bollywood and the man who impacted bollywood in big big way has debuted on television. Aamir Khan reminds me of Howard Roark of Fountain Head..Though he started his career with typical movies but soon he evolved into terrain less taken and made it into big commercial success.
Aamir Khan‘s Lagaan was strict no no for bollywood. A period film with cricket as theme was considered to be too risky business. Aamir Khan took the challenge and Lagaan managed not just to become super hit movie but also enter in top 5 films in other languages in Oscar.
Aamir Khan’s first directorial film didnt have aamir khan till 15 mints before end of first half of the film!!!!!!!…It was first film in history of bollywood which had child artist entering nomination of best film actor. Taare Zameen Par was big time hit and important issue of Dyslexia was brought into drawing boards of Indians. Delivering message with entertainment is key to aamir’s success..
3 Idiots was typical Raju Hirani Movie who like aamir believes in delivering message with humor . 3 idiots did question education system of India.Haste haste raju addressed very very important issue and aamir did what he does best.
Now aamir is on television with his show called satyamev jayate.
In its first episode satyamev jayate address one of biggest and most impacting of social evils which refused to die in India. The social evil of Female Foeticide. Officially we as nation have killed 2 million daughters in 20 years. The figures are shameful and no patriotic person can ignore these figures.
The imbalance is increasing in society and inspite of all the growth which India has seen recently the evil refuses to die. I have written time and again about the evil , some of posts addressing this and one of its causes is as below :
Coming back to satyamev jayate , it is real good attempt and roping in aamir khan would ensure better view ability. There are some criticism toward the show too where people say it is commercial project and aamir khan is doing the show for money .
To be honest aamir khan could have opted for dance show or cooking show or game show or any bollywood based show but he choosed social show. Whats wrong in it?. Even if aamir goes to make 100 crore from the show , whats wrong in it as long as show have impact on psychic of Indian and atleast 2% people get transformed it would be real boast because 2% of 2 million makes 40000 lives saved…Isnt it?
