I can't read Bengali so I can't really verify this, but the way I understand the article, it looks like the film was intended to be a tribute for the 150th birthday but they failed to release it in time and only came out later. So they wanted it to be released as a tribute but didn't quite manage it? Wouldn't the hook be a bit misleading if that's the case? ChamalT•C 02:50, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
Swami Vivekananda's 150th birthday was on 12 January, 2013. Celebration started from 12 January, 2013 and is continuing still! --Tito Dutta (talk) 19:24, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't see a problem. For many eminent figures such as Darwin, Einstein, etc., people take the opportunity of an aniversary year to do lots of things in memory of them. Not everything comes out precisely on the corresponding anniversary day. Though I suppose we could change "birthday" to "birth anniversary" and it would read almost as well:
Which hook do people prefer? Or is the original best because it is simplest (personally, I would regard birthday in this context as a term that is flexible enough to cover birth year)? --Presearch (talk) 20:04, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
Somehow I feel that if we use "anniversary" like you suggest, it gives less of an impression that the release was targeted for a specific date. Although having said that, I guess somebody else will have to do the review now :) ChamalT•C 02:39, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
The article is new enough, long enough, and adequately sourced. I don't see evidence of too-close paraphrasing or similar issues. However, better citation support is needed for the hook fact. I don't find necessary citation support in the article for the statement that the film was intended as a tribute for the 150th anniversary of his birth. There are two footnotes associated with that statement in the lead paragraph, but neither one of them has information about the Swami's birthday or the idea that the film as a tribute for the birth anniversary. Reference 13, which is cited near the end of the article, does talk about his birthdate in connection with the actual release date (I got that much from Google translation of the Bengali), but the passage of the Wikipedia article where this source is cited doesn't mention this being a tribute to the birth. Please edit the article to provide clearer support for the hook fact.
As for hook wording, my personal preference is for the wording in hook ALT2. --Orlady (talk) 01:42, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
