Satyamev Jayate : Hats-Off Aamir Khan the Perfectionist


After a long break, once again i'm back with my new post, but i would prefer to remain to be such occasional blogger.

Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan's new show on Star Plus was much in buzz, since last few months.  Aamir Khan was bursting to speak about the show but well managed to continue the  suspense over the 'format' of a show, which like any viewer kept me in anxiety to see it, as soon as its aired and so happened.

As am at Rajkot on weekend, usually prefer to see movies on weekends at 'Cosmoplex', the very 1st Multiplex of the city and the Saurashtra-Kutch region.  Managed to see Jannat-2 last night, ofcourse usual Bhatt Camp movie dealing with some reality based subject theme of illegal arms racket in the capital city (New Delhi) of the nation (India).  But viewing of Jannat-2 in last show on Saturday night, gave me hangover of hearing 108 abusive bad words of highest degree (probably even more than Aamir's last flick "Delhi Belly" which became more controversial due to use of abusive language - just on a lighter note).

So, pivoting back to our topic on Satyamev Jayate, yes - Aamir Khan has proved that what and how can television platform be used to address the burning issues, as they just become the screaming headlines in media.
  
Important element of Satyamev Jayate as the 1st episode plays seems that show does not just aim at sensationalizing those issues, but equally also suggesting tentative solution to the issue.

Activism through films has been the recent genre in Indian Cinema.  But activism through media has always been labelled as "Media Trial".  It seems Aamir has fantastically managed to erase that thin line of difference, between "Media Trial" and "Activism through Media" by his reality show.

In an undisputed manner, as the very 1st episode on Female Foeticide as aired in Satyamev Jayate progressed it ran through several waves of emotions, but definitely gave a feeling to the viewers that here is a convenient, well researched and compelling to think format of content, on Indian Television. 

In the very 1st episode of Satyamev Jayate on female foeticide, Aamir manages to bring in real life case studies from lower to elite class of society.  Supports same narrations with needful statistics. Breaks the myth with the research done by experts. Pulls up negative and positive example.  Uses archived video footages of sting operation done by another mainstream television news channel in making viewers aware that what kind of awareness efforts have been initiated by media and how those efforts have been rewarded.  Also makes necessary mentions on the importance given to issue the address by highest political and constitutional authorities of the nation and how a body like Indian Medical Council - watchdog for Medical fraternity has failed to stop this social menace. Spins into the past talking on the core, as to what was the point of induction of this issue, how it got wide-spread.  Also explains that what is the commerce associated with it, finally pointing out probable threat-points, or the problems arising out of this one wrong decision taken in an individual capacity or by mass.

Obviously with a strong intention to convenience the masses and build the kind of opinion building which shall surface-up through this show, for the first time a private broadcaster (Star Plus) show has got tie-up for simultaneous airing of show with Government's Telecast network (Doordarshan), so that even the remotest viewer is not missed out to be part of Satyamev Jayate. 

Instead of making this issue sensational and blaming government for not taking necessary action to curb the menace of female foeticide, Satyamev Jayate finally agrees on an oath of Self Discipline.  Wherein Aamir appeals all the audience present in the studio, viewers on television to unanimously decide that, "Now onwards, we will not support such activity."

To make one realize the difference between the wrong and right, Aamir's efforts in Satyamev Jayate right from addressing prevailing issue, create right kind of an understanding for the whole matter and than finally zeroing over it on that lets not do this - i think this is a very right kind of an initiative and approach.

In this well connected world, today information is so much so duplicated that the real understanding and judging capacity between what is right and what is wrong is absolutely dissolving and diluting, slowly and gradually.

In such a scenario, Satyamev Jayate's crisp format of just 90 minutes, to make one realize that what is right and what is wrong, have a better understanding of same, ignite your decision making process and finally decide what to do and what not to do, without creating much hype by triggering decision making in a little easier manner and without any bias, than yes objective of this show to indeed make India and Indians live worth their pride would be attained, if not today than tomorrow.

As i surf across the social networking platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Orkut, Youtube etc) which are streaming with accolades for the show and anchor, it seems Satyamev Jayate and Aamir Khan have managed to garner success for the show, even before the TRP (Target Rating Point) Reportcards are out. 

This phenomena reminds me of one of the Aamir Khan starrer flick "3 Idiots" where Aamir says one dialogue, "Excellence ko chase karo, success jakh maar ke aayega," (Meaning : Chase Excellence, Success will follow) 

As if this dialogue has turned into a reality which is very well perceived as i search google.com exactly after 1 hour of show being aired. 

There are "244 articles" in search list of google.com in just 60 minutes talking on how Satyamev Jayate is stirring souls, Aamir turning out to be a crusader, Aamir Khan's TV Debut 'Satyamev Jayate' takes Twitter by storm, Satyamev Jayate will become India's New Sunday Habit etc etc, plus 6 lakh 65 thousand plus views on youtube.com, earns status among top 5 trends on twitter.com ... and the saga to continue ...

This all speaks that by bringing in such perfectionists like Aamir Khan, how Indian Television is maturing and what kind of role can Indian Television really play (by bringing the right kind of viewer convenient format content) to change and shape this country and indeed make it "India Shining".

For this television Debut, Aamir Khan is getting Rs.3 Crores per Episode - Bravo Aamir, here you come - get ready SOME SEFL ACCLAIMED SCHIZOPHRENIC SO-CALLED STAR STATUS STUDDED JOURNALISTS, (whose annual salaries are also not at par with the payment made per episode to Aamir Khan) here comes a perfectionist who will not only compel this self acclaimed schizophrenic so-called star status studded journos but the entire Indian Television Industry including the NEWS BROADCASTERS also now to change their presentation and format, because ultimately its a game of Target Rating Point (TRP) based revenue model.

Just one line as tribute to Aamir's Satyamev Jayate ... 
"Tera rung aisa chadh gaya, Koi aur rang naa chadh sake ..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As Aamir clarifies his intentions in the very first opening commentary of the show, here are some lines from same,

"Sirf Hungama khada karnaa mera maqsad nahi,
Meri Koshish hai ki yeh Surat Badalni Chahiye,
Mere Sine mein nahi, to tere sine mein hi sahi,
Ho Kahin bhi AAG, lekin AAG jalni chhahiye ..."

Satyamev Jayate Theme Song lyrics

Tere rang aisa chadh gaya
Koi aur rang na chadh sake
Tera naam seeney pe likha
Har koi aake padh sakey

Hai junoon hai junoon hai
Tere ishq ka ye junoon hai
Rag rag mein ishq tera daudta
Yeh bawra sa khoon hai
Tune hi sikhaya sachaio ka matlab
Tere paas aake jaana maine zindagi ka maksad
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar mera, satyamev jayate
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate 

Tere noor ke dastoor mein
Na ho salwatein na shikan rahe
Meri koshishein toh hai bas yaheen
Rahein khushbooein gulshan rahe
Teri zulf suljhaney chala
Terey aur paas aaney chala
Jahan koi sur na ho besura
Woh geet main ganey chala
Hai junoon hai junoon hai
Tere ishq ka ye junoon hai
Rag rag mein ishq tera daudta
Yeh bawra sa khoon hai
Tune hi sikhaya sachaio ka matlab
Tere paas aake jaana maine zindagi ka maksad
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar mera, satyamev jayate
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate  

Tere rang aisa chadh gaya
Tha nasha jo aur bhi badh gaya
Teri barishon ka karam hai ye
Main nikhar Gaya main sanwar gaya
Jaisa bhi hoon apna mujhey
Mujhey ye nahin hain bolna
Kabil tere main ban sakoo
Mujhey dwaar aisa kholna
Sanson ki iss raftaar ko
Dhadkan ke iss tyohaar ko
Har jeet ko har haar ko
Khud apney iss sansaar ko
Badloonga main tere liye
Hai junoon hai junoon hai
Tere ishq ka ye junoon hai
Rag rag mein ishq tera daudta
Yeh bawra sa khoon hai
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar mera, satyamev jayate
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate  

Mujhey khud ko bhi hai tatolna
Kahin hai kami to hai bolna
Khahin dag hain toh chupayein kyon
Hum sach se nazrein hatayein kyon
Khud ko badalna hai agar
Badloonga main tere liye
Sholon pe chalna hai agar
Chal doonga main tere liye
Mere khoon kee har boond main
Sankalp ho tere pyaar ka
Kato mujhey to tu bahe
Ho surkh rang har dharrrr ka


Hai junoon hai junoon hai
Tere ishq ka ye junoon hai
Rag rag mein ishq tera daudta
Yeh bawra sa khoon hai

Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar mera, satyamev jayate
Satyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
Sacha hai pyaar mera, satyamev jayateSatyamev, satyamev, satyamev jayate
