Six Plus One Man Movie In Hindi


Songs in pop Indian film, as metanarratives, allow the spectator to create meaning within the larger, scattered, melodramatic filmic space. Consequently, they provide insight into an otherwise incoherent narrative. At the level of the "real world," the popularity of a song from a film often determines the failure or success of the film, since its economic success is largely indebted to the "catchiness" of the tune. (3) If the radio replay of the song is successful, the film audience will repeatedly (sometimes as often as daily for the entire run!) go back to see the movie. Another significant point is that the actors in the films do not perform the songs (although there have been exceptions); rather, voices attributed to the songs are of well-known playback singers. Neepa Majumdar's insightful work on the connections between stardom and song sequences is worth mentioning here. She argues for a connection between the star system in Bollywood and the "song picturizations" that take place on-screen. (4) According to Majumdar, the very definition of the term song picturization renders meaning to the image "in the terms set out by the song" (167). In song picturization, then, resided the aural and visual pleasure that gave Hindi cinema its unique nature. The split between the singing voice and the performing body on-screen became the desired norm by the 1950s.

So we have six Indian channels: B4U, which is the premium movie channel; Star Gold, which is the best of Indian classic movies; two music channels, B4U and Channel V; Star News; and Star Plus--which is currently showing the program "Kaun Banega Crorepati," or "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." So we've got a pretty powerful start to a bouquet. We had the press conference in Dubai and went on a local radio station for a three-minute interview, and we were there over an hour. The switchboard was lighting up; people have just gone nuts.


Tydeman: Not exactly. There are some areas where we don't compete with Showtime, and areas where we try to collaborate and get some channels together. We have different markets. Showtime has nothing for the Asian market, for example, except Sony Entertainment Channel, which is one channel in an English-language bouquet and doesn't really drive a lot of Asian buyers. We've gone the "Arabic-plus" path, while Showtime has gone the "English-plus" path. They've been able to capitalize on the fact that there are so many free-to-air Arabic channels around their English-language bouquet. And eventually Arabic-plus and English-plus meet in the middle.


Tydeman: That's an interesting story. When I was doing some work once with MTV, they had a guy who would say "there's no such thing as a bad transponder." One of the projects they were looking at was how they could upload a large number of transponders; they had a surplus of these when the world changed from analog to digital. That mentality had at one stage permeated our group. There was a period of time when I don't think there was a satellite system in the world that didn't have an option or a lease from our organization. That's changed, but the good news is that we fell across transponders and an opportunity to take our bouquet, since we own the content on the Arabic side, into Europe. We've become a niche-market programmer in Europe. And capitalizing on Hotbird, we were then faced with the dilemma of how to get into North Africa as well. North Africa is an interesting market, because like the Levant, it's French-Arabic. English is a distant third, we've found.


Diversity was on display. The Oscar winners came from all over the world. The best picture was the Shape of Water, a romantic fable about a deaf janitor who falls in love with a sea creature, (who lo
