SINGER ACTOR vs. ACTOR DIRECTOR

View AKSAR Premiere - Picture GalleryGoing a step further in the genre, Himesh Reshamiya is going to be the first Music Director Actor after Kishore Kumar who is going to launch himself into a film AAPKA SUROOR. This would be after a really long time when the era of singer actor is going to be revisited, but with an icing on the cake that he is also a music director as such it would be one of the firsts in the real sense of terms after the same was done by Kishore Kumar. It is a great risk that Himesh Reshamiya is taking at a point of his career when he is ruling the roost and calling the shots.

His contemporary Sonu Nigam had done the same but the experiment fell flat on the face. In the previous generation apart from Kishore Kumar only Pancham aka Rahul Dev Burman had done this, but it was not in a main role, but as a comedian working in tandem with a star of the caliber of Mehmood who was at the peak of his career and could carry any film on his shoulder.

Probably it is the burst of the media frenzy that has accompanied him in his meteoric success that would have been the guiding factor in his experiment. Guiding him in his endeavor could also have been the success that his contemporaries have achieved in the various television channels, and this could also have triggered in him the urge to experiment on a much larger canvas, the silver screen. It would be of interest to watch the film, as if it is a normal romantic film, then to get the audience to throng to the box office, some out of the box performance has to be there in the film. From the promos of the film it appears as if the onus of carrying the film is lying on his shoulders.

Aap Kk SuroorHowever, it may harm the interest of the films if Himesh at this point of time enters into a war of words with his peers and is critical of his predecessors. One thing, which he has ensured through this film, and a smart marketing move it is, is that he would be able to bring in all the auto rickshaw walas to see his film, as it plays an important role, and he could use the auto rickshaws to publicize his films, as various web sites are doing to a killing effect.

Kishore Kumar when he became an actor director carved a niche for himself as a man who could be symbolized with making sensitive films, like DOOR GAGAN KI CHANWAN MEIN. May be, Himesh would also bring about his sensitivity to the Hindi films and would not be a run of the mill director. May the SUROOR endure?
