I have a strong feeling against movies that have far too much violence. I have witnessed the trend towards violence in kids as young as nine years old.Some imitate this in real life. I have taught nine year olds and I have seen how they’ve changed. Once I asked them to write stories without adding violence in it. They complained it was the best thing. Thinking it might be because boys love fighting and they prefer to write fiction where they can include violence, when I asked how many girls would like the same thing,to my utter disappointment all of them favoured it.
I got to know Waheed Murad,when I accidentally Saw his picture while watching
my favourite Bengali movie.
As I did not know who he was I decided to check it out.I found out this was a
clip from the movie Doraha.The singer was my favourite Mehdi Hasan.I listened
to the song which had amazing lyrics,and the singer what can I say was
one of the best.
Then amazingly enough began my story of Waheed.Although when I found
out about him he had already bid good-bye to this ungrateful world of ours.
My mission was to find every single movie,I was only able to get a few.
If I didn’t know what the word ‘ Talent ‘ means,I most certainly do now.
In his movie
,he was an uneducated Rickshaw driver.If I hadn’t read his biography
before,I would have thought he was probably an uneducated son of poor parents.But I knew
He was highly educated and an only son of very wealthy parents.
In every movie I saw his acting was believable i.e,he was able to do full justice
to the part he played.
I know in India Dilip Kumar was and still is very popular,among his fans.But Waheed
In my opinion had the looks,the pronunciation and softness of heart
which anyone would love to have.He was as unique as his name suggests.
I probably can write volumes about him,But I will close by saying,he was
one legend who was misunderstood.Although I wasn’t able to write all this
when he was alive,but I really will say this,”I am his number one fan”.
