The show is nice. The show started on a boring note; but got interesting after 15 minutes. Keep up the good work, Aamir! Deleting the following. But if you launch season II of the show, consider the last paragraph –
One of the only actors in the Indian movie industry who I really admire is Aamir Khan. He’s the only one, in my opinion, who gives us something fresh and entertaining every time. So the promos of his new show, “Satyamev Jayate” wanted me to turn on TV at 11 am on Sunday. First 5 minutes into the show and I know what to expect and I gathered enough information to write this review. Unfortunately, the show does not live up to my expectations. Continuing from the introductory narration to the show, we all know that we all would get a Z minus on our post-independence performance. We’ve totally failed to achieve even the 0.01% of what we were (‘were’, not ‘are’) capable of. It’s the hard and sad reality that our beginning wasn’t great; for we never ‘won’ our freedom. The British decided to setup the brown-skinned rulers who were British at heart before leaving the country so that they can continue ruling it from their own countries; without sacrificing even a drop of blood fighting against the locals. That’s another story though! The point is, we’ve failed! …and that failure has led us to creating a society full of problems. We were systematically taught to be ashamed of our own history. People have the worst of the problems; not they they are unique to Indians, but give me a break! Half of us have convinced that nothing will ever change. We are aware of the problems and reality and we don’t need another show that plays with our emotions by making us aware of people’s problems. I’m not a stone! I know problems exists but what I badly want today is a solution! Not more familiarity with problems! Satyamev Jayate seems to be a show that aims to reach people’s hearts through melancholic emotions. Haven’t we had enough of them already? The show’d have been really ‘awesome’ had Aamir Khan offered some or the other way to fixing these problems. Big thing, right? But that’s what we’re used to getting from Aamir Khan. Explain to people what Lokpal Bill is about in interesting way. Tell people about India’s glorious past, science, technological innovations in an entertaining manner. Tell people about how the problem of Black Money is the root cause of most of the problem this country faces. Tell them how their support can help in brining it back. Teach people the importance of “Swadeshi”. Tell people how can they do small things that result into maximum impact! Make people aware of the basic laws and rights. Use your entertaining skills to entertain and educate!
…and I want to know why is this show titled “Satyamev Jayate”.
