Om Puri Birth Anniversary: From Tamas To Kakaji Kahin - Five Shows Of The Actor That Made Television A Better Place

There was a time when Indian Television content was far more progressive, informative, entertaining and educational than movies. Television was a great place to be and Doordarshan fulfilled all our entertainment needs. During that time, we were blessed to watch shows that delved deeper into society and put forth stories that we weren’t aware of. Thanks to that, we saw some brilliant performances by Om Puri in some of the most amazing Television shows of that time. Be it the horrors of partition in Tamas or a quirky narrator of Mr Yogi or a corrupt comedic politician in Kakaji Kahin, Puri was just excellent in everything. It was those times when delving into both shows and movies was not seen with hesitation or there would have been no Shah Rukh Khan either.  36 Years of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro: 5 Dialogues From Naseeruddin Shah-Om Puri Film That Are Purely ICONIC!

Anyway, coming back to Om Puri, on his birthday today, we would like to tell you about some of his shows that deserve a huge round of applause.

Bharat Ek Khoj (1988)

Puri played a host of characters as it was based on Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru’s book Discovery Of India. He was Aurangzeb, Asoka, Ravana, Duryodhan and others. Directed by Shyam Benegal, this show is a must for everyone who wants to learn something about India and not just make claims on Twitter.

Tamas (1988)

The partition of 1947 is a wound that is still fresh even after more than 70 years of Independence. Britishers made sure we will never forgive and forget when they quit India. All that is amazingly depicted in this show by Govind Nihalani. Puri played the protagonist in this series based on Bisham Shahani’s book by the same name. Puri as Nathu will make you weep and wail.

Mr. Yogi (1988)

One of the hilarious series on the TV was Mr Yogi. While Mohan Gokhale or Mr Yogi goes on a hunt for a suitable bride for him in India, Puri as a narrator puns on the protagonist making it a laugh riot. Puri has a certain way of saying his lines and that makes it so amazing to hear.

Kakaji Kahin (1988)

Directed by Basu Chatterji and based on a book named Netaji Kahin, this was a political satire that aired on Doordarshan. He was a loud, corrupt politician with a wicked laugh. It was so easy to dislike him in the show and yet you will find yourself chuckling at his mannerisms.

Kirdaar (1993-1994)

Kirdaar so some of the acclaimed writers of the country penning amazing narratives for the TV audience. Many of them had Puri in them and all of them were fantastic.

Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar October 25: Kavita Kaushik Becomes the New Captain, Shardul Pandit's Distasteful Comment Fumes Naina Singh- 5 Highlights of BB 14

Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar witnessed quite a high-voltage drama on tonight’s episode. As Kavita Kaushik, Shardul Pandit and Niana Singh entered the show as wild cards. That’s not it, as the trio in front of host Salman Khan gets into a verbal war. It was Kavita and Naina vs Shardul. Having said that, inside the house we see Nikki Tamboli getting irritated in a new task which was all about ‘visibility on the show’. All in all, it was a power-packed Weekend Ka Vaar with Salman Khan. Check out BB 14 highlights below. Bigg Boss 14 Weekend Ka Vaar October 24: Salman Khan Slams Rubina Dilaik, Kavita Kaushik Makes a Virtual Appearance – 5 Highlights of BB 14. 

Salman Khan Gives Jasmin Bhasin An Advice

First things first, the host talks to Jasmin about how she always is in her own world inside the house and does not speak her opinion loudly. Jasmin in her defence tells Bhaijaan that she tries to stay calm as much as possible as she does not want to utter something distasteful. To which, Salman replies that she needs to vent out her feelings whatsoever on national TV.

Meet Wild Cards Kavita Kaushik and Naina Singh

Wild card entries Kavita and Naina make a sizzling entry on the show with a bang. Television’s two hotties dance to ‘Laila Mein Laila‘ and raise the temperature. The two also play BB Q&A with the host and Naina wins it. Well, it will be exciting to see the two girls getting locked inside the house and showing their true self amid hundred of cameras.

Check Out The Video:

Wild Card Shardul Pandit Ruins It All

After the hot performance of the two actresses, Salman introduces the third wild card, Shardul Pandit. Amid this, the host asks the lad about take on Kavita and Naina. To which, he replies that he has met Naina and she has also sat on his lap. This indecent comment by Pandit fumes Naina and she slams him. Even Kavita adds to this and tags him as a joker. Naina gets the last word and says that now she has mudda (topic) to indulge in a war with Shardul.

The Visibility Game

Bigg Boss gives a new task to the inmates where they need to unanimously decide and rank themselves on how much he/she is visible in the house in the 60-minute episode everyday. The housemates, as usual, were unable to come to conclusion and so the wild cards decide their fate. And the screen time is as follows – 23 minutes Pavitra-Eijaz, 17 minutes Rubina, 9 minutes Jasmin, 5 minutes Nikki and so on.

Kavita Kaushik Becomes The New Captain

The housemates meet the three wild cards and Salman then gives a task to the contestants where they need to vote and decide who among Kavita, Shardul and Naina they want in the red zone. The selected one will join Pavitra and Eijaz. Four votes each goes to Naina and Shadul and only one vote comes in for Kavita. As the FIR actress gets the least vote, she becomes the captain of the house.

That’s it, guys! Tonight’s Weekend Ka Vaar with Salman Khan was indeed power-packed with wild card entries presence. Monday brings nominations and we will also see the new entrants being their real self on national TV. Stay tuned!

Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Mrunal Thakur Graces the Season’s Finale, Stuns in Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu Outfits (View Pics)

Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Mrunal Thakur Graces the Season's Finale, Stuns in Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu Outfits (View Pics)

The first-ever digital Lakme Fashion Week ended on the night of October 25th and it was honestly a very underwhelming affair. With no major designers to participate and collections that weren’t jaw-dropping, LFW Autumn/Winter 2020 received a very lukewarm response and we hope it returns with a bang next year. The event that was opened by Kartik Aaryan and Manish Malhotra was closed by Super 30 actress Mrunal Thakur with Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu. The finale collection was a revelation and yes, we mean in a good way. Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Athiya Shetty Turns Muse for Aisha Rao and her Stunning Red Lehenga Should be Bookmarked by all Millennial Brides-to-Be (View Pics).

Rimzim’s collection was more about sculpted metallic silhouettes and signature cords, along with geometric and floral patterns. The silhouettes were contemporary but the treatment was very unconventional. The collection looked mesmerizing against a black backdrop and the visuals were quite fulfiling.

Next in line was a designer duo, Saaksha & Kinni whose collection was loaded with embroidery, mirror and thread work. Mrunal was the muse for both their collections and needless to say, she made the shift look effortless. From monochrome fashion to colour blocking trend, the collections looked radiant and Mrunal was the perfect thread who bound them together. Lakme Fashion Week 2020: Radhika Madan and Aparshakti Khurana Exude all the Radiant Vibes as they Walk for Sukriti & Aakriti (View Pics).

While the closing act was probably the best part of this entire event, we hope to see more designers get back in action for LFW Spring/Summer 2021. Until then, here’s a round of applause for brilliant designers Saaksha & Kinni and Rimzim Dadu.
