Hum Apke Hain Kaun is the film which created History in Indian of Cinema Turning to be the Biggest ever Blockbuster in the World. But Did you know , Such a Big film too Initially had its own hurdles.
We will come to it, But Firstly would like to Dedicate to RajKumar Barjatya (Raj Babu) who was formally too a Father figure to me too, Heard lots of stories of Vivah and many more from Sir which were inspiring.
Did you know Film Hum Apke Hain Kaun initially did not get any screens and hence was released in only LIBERTY cinema – Where it had a Advance Booking Board for continuously THREE WEEKS. From Third , Movie was released across the Globe and Rest is History.
Also Hum Apke Hain Kaun hence became the first film which opened Doors for Black Marketing , That is Rs 40 of Single Screens use to sell for 100.
Hum Apke Hain Kaun was the first film which could be seen with whole family, A Wedding Entertainer. And “Indeed my First film that seen in Theaters with Family”, Priyanka Raina adds.
Also was the first film where songs could not be skipped because songs had the continuity of story attached to it.
Film Hum Apke Hain Kaun Directed by Sooraj Barjatya and Prouduced by Rajshri Productions features Salman Khan , Madhuri Dixit, Sahila Chaddha, Renuka Shahne, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo , Satish Shah, Bindu in Lead Roles.
Also the most important was the TUFFY. “There were two Tuffies on the set, One TUFFY was lazy and use to sit so sitting shots we use to take from him. Other TUFFY only use to run, so running shots use to take from Him” Madhuri Dixit Adds
Then Lots of memories of PREM- Nisha Wedding , Isnt it ? And how can we forget our Lovely POOJA BHABHI with LO CHALI MEIN….
Last but Not Least , RITA of Hum Apke Hain Kaun played by Sahila Chaddha who opens the movie with the Opening Shot in Cricket Ground. Also has some important Key Factors which became a Trademark like “Girl Played Salman” , SHAKUNTALA and the Salt in HALWA .
And the frame without which my note could not be Completed is SALMAN KHAN , The man who defines Humanity and is a wonderful human.
Salman Khan addressed condolences to actors Reema Lagoo , who not with us . Also Reema Lagoo was one favorites who played Salman ‘s Mother in Law in most of his films.
Hum Apke Hain Kaun released world wide in 9th Aug 1994 , and it completes 25 years Henceforth.
Karan Deol to start his journey of a Lover Boy in PAL PAL DIL KE PAAS with Sehar . Teaser out on 5th August 2019.
The movie s Directed By Sunny Deol and Song PAL PAL DIL KE PAAS is already on Hit numbers featuring Dharmendra.
Long Journey since was learning aspects of Film-making deeply into my Theater Life , At that time use to send for Crowd Dubbing to get proper aspect of “How Films are made“. As Dubbing is more difficult from Acting, You have to match the Lips while looking into the Monitor.
During this Tenure, Have Dubbed for all Big Films such as LIFE IN A METRO , BHOOTHNATH , WELCOME and many cartoon episodic. All this were lined in one and only BR STUDIOS which was the only Highlighted studio of that times. And during Dubbing , was the first one to view movie in Post Production stage.
During that tenure period , A source from (Sonam Kapoor) team called up ,”Do you want an Pass for the Biggest ever SAWARIA Premiere Night” .. I was totally taken aback , By that time doing plays , Dubbing so had not even seen the trailer of movie SAAWARIA but had idea that its Ranbir’s Film. On this I said indistinctly that” This things should not ask , Should Gift it immediately.
I saw the Venue (Imax) as was near my side and Time 8 PM and my screen 3. Saawaria was The Biggest Premiere , and Glad was Part of it (Screen 3|IMAX) .As was my very first party, was nervous to click pictures, but will share you few moments that I witnessed in this iconic premiere.
Keeping it simple and charming , was wearing a Blue Kurta type and Jeans….
AS I entered IMAX lane, could see a jumble of crowd with cameras(Wasn’t knowing that time that its Media) . Then walked at REd Carpets – There at Gate were The Man Sanjay Leela Bansali himself standing with Ranbir and Sonam to welcome guests.
They smiled at me to know my name, I showed my pass and on this said “Welcome”.
As walked inside , was totally a roller-coaster ride , with almost the whole Film fraternity. Told to myself, “This is my World of Dreams”
Firstly, There was SLB sir shouting Screen 2 and Screen 4 – We have started movie so please walk in. He came and saw my pass which was SCREEN 3 , so told “Enjoy the Party , we have still time”
Screen 2 and Screen 4 were normal public so started early. Screen 3 were elderly actors and Screen 1 were Young ones.
So nervous and quietly stood besides Rani Mukherji (Was actually comparing Height as have read she has short height.) But after seeing , Told “Rani is taller”
Was standing next to Rani, Next was Sonam an Ranbir and Priyanka Chopra. Four of us were looking at each other and smiling until a Bizarre happened. There came a small kid who touched an actor , his mom coming from behind ” BETA UNCLE KO SORRY BOLO”
There should have seen Ranbir Kapoor’s look, Before he could say anything- Voice from Behind came “Uncle Mat Kaho Na“. We all looked behind and was Karan Johar with a weird look. Ranbir was the first one to say “Oh Karan Uncle….”
Secondly , while was entering into screen – Salman Khan was standing a the Gate to welcome guests as all elder actors were in it. Ahead of me was Dimple Kapadia, and then I came in-front of Salman to enter, I told “You can carry the same procedure as with Dimple Kapadia” . On this Salman smiled and said “Welcome”.
Then coming to interval phase, This was the most iconic moments of my life as shared moments with Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar.
When was just standing on First floor and looking down, there came Saira Banu and kept talking to me for I think around 10 minutes , my name and brief conversations n Cinema. Dilip ji was standing at a distance of feet and walking (That time He could walk).
Also while was sitting where Sawaria BOAT (Sets) was decorated, There was Rishi Kapoor looked at me, thought for a while and said “Hello”
Now coming to climax, when we all came out and have see “Faces” . At that time some one told , Be here Ranbir is coming to everyone to ask reactions. I was like, Omg what to say as did not like the film.
At that time Ranbir Kapoor came, Hold me and told, “So here we are, How was the film”
I told, “Loved your performance thoroughly especially Jab se tere Naina song, and you the real Rockstar man , Have a long way to go”
(Did not tell about movie anything , just praised RK )
Hearing this , Ranbir Kapoor gave a Tight Hug and said “Thanks Buddy”
That was all about the Biggest Night , and years after while was editing for my very first Short film “Clean and Green India” in 2011, met Ranbir Kapoor at BR STUDIOS who I think had come to Dub for Wake up sid.
So if anyone has seen me in Saawaria premiere inside pictures, Do send in mail if have, Thanks and Regards

Review By : Priyanka Raina
Before we talk on our Today’s Release, Let us talk on some films based on Social messages. In past have seen a Brilliant film HICHKI where a Class F which belonged to poor students, and no professor was ready to teach them . Here Rani takes up challenge in educating them . Here We go , Our Today’s Solo Release SUPER 30 which is a Biopic of ANAND KUMAR who trains Poor students , So that they can prepare for IIT is surely a Roller-coaster ride .
Super 30 in short, is a story of Anand Kumar (Hrithik Roshan) who has won a Gold Medal and wants to go to Cambridge to pursue future studies, But a Child of ISHWAR (Virendra Sexana) who is a post master and has insufficient funds so selling things for living. Here a Owner of Coaching Classes approaches him to teach students , so agrees. But later he sees, That they are charging heavy fees due to which poor students cant afford. From there story takes a loop when he opens Anand Kumar coaching classes for free for poor students.
As you say , To open a good thing is not easy. This gave problem to opposition (Pankaj Tripathi) who were cheating with heavy funds in name of education. How Anand Kumar trains students with hurdles is a brilliant power-packed story by Vikas Bahl.
Cast : Hrithik Roshan is absolutely stunning right from his first film Kaho na pyaar hai to Super 30, Every film is teaching us a bit. Pankaj Tripathi is fabulous actor. Rajesh Sharma is increasing from every film. Good to see Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi fame Virendra Saxena as Hrithik ‘s Dad
Music: Music of the film is sensational , like singing just in English on Hindi Bits. Every song weather Holi or Question mark has a story.
Direction : Vikas Bahl right from Queen , am a Fan and in SUPER 30- completely nailed it. From Screenplay to music is so perfect, well written with a powerful message
The Last Word : Finally Eklavya Wins over Arjun. Super 30 is a inspirational story to all new comers who think without being someone you cant achieve anything. Now Its just TALENT that will survive.
Rating : FOUR STARS

Produced By : Kamlesh Singh, Ketan Patel, Swati Singh
Cast : Anupam Kher, Esha Gupta, Rajesh Sharma, Anant Mahadevan, Murli Sharma, Deepshikha Nagpal and others
Review By : Priyanka Raina
Today’s Release of the Day One Day : Justice Delivered is featuring Anupam Kher, Esha Gupta, Anant Mahadevan, Rajesh Sharma , Murli Sharma, Deepshikha Nagpal .When we talk on Anupam Kher films, Movie has to talk on a certain message in society. Lets see Hows today’s release delivers to its audience.
Talking on the Story line, One Day : Justice Delivered is a story of are renown Lawyer in a city of Ranchi Justice Tyagi (Anupam Kher) who is about to take Retirement. Busy with his Daughter s wedding , and He decides to kidnap all Culprits One by One whom he had released on Bail. And on these missing people , Inquiry has been set in form of CBI Officer (Esha Gupta) who solves the mystery.
Well Story if we see seems good , But “treatment” to film (Direction) is like we use to see the films of 80s. The film included two ITEM NUMBERS which could attract single screen audience.
Direction: Director Ashok Nanda , I think firstly should go back to Anupam Kher‘s “Actor Prepares” and learn a bit of Story telling, improvisation on how to tell a story. He has given treatment of 80s which included dark Item Numbers, Created Party scene and all.
Cinematography: Cinematography can either make a film or Destroy a film, And in ONE DAY we can see second verdict is on. Cameraman has no sense of lighting , He has too given treatment as it was there in 80s, Or we can say “New Item in Old Box” .
Acting : As far is Anupam Kher is concerned , I think only he is the key point to save the film. Esha Gupta sometimes she is talking Marwadi, Sometimes Bihari, Sometimes Hidi and Dont know which character she was playing. Supporting Actors like Rajesh Sharma, Anant Mahadevan , Murli Sharma, Deepshika Nagpal were good enough in their small roles.
Watch ONE DAY (Video Review) Verdict by Priyanka Raina
The Last Word : “New Item in Old Box” says it all about the film. The Story is good ,But Treatment given is of 80s with huge number of “Item Songs” added to flavor. The movie could rather attract Single screens.
Rating : TWO STARS
