Notability of New wikipedia article : South Indian Film Industry[edit]

Please check user talk page of the wikipedia user - MThekkumthala

Forwarded message attached:

South Indian Film Industry[edit]

  • 1. POV, Each indian film industry is individual in its own terms and have individual articles in wikipedia.
  • 2. There is no single south indian film industry, Hindi film is also a part of revenue generation.
  • 3. The gross revenues of each Indian film industry varies each year, Hindi Film Revenue in 2011 is higher.
  • 4. There is no notability for this article, Instead it creates confusion and it not feasible to shift all the references and information from Cinema of India article.
  • 5. Please obey the three revert rule.
  • 6. The information in south indian film industry article is already provided in cinema of india article, please check it.

EXCELLENT work on Dimple Kapadia's article. BTW have you seen any new films recently? I'm yet to see The Dirty Picture, but I've been hearing great things about Vidya's performance in the film. -- Bollywood Dreamz talk 02:44, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

What'ya think of this. Clint Eastwood was a fan of Bill Evans. Wow File:Bippashabasuu.jpg She's wearing the Zinta jade green which looks extremely hot on Indian women remember.♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:51, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Wow how hot is that chick at 1:18 here. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 22:36, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Apart from Ra.One—which I thought was ambitious but strictly okay—I haven't really had the chance to watch any new films. I'm really looking forward to watch TDP & Rockstar. -- Bollywood Dreamz talk 01:41, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Humanitarian etc[edit]

I was trying to find something to add to Rani's page other than film appearances. I ran across this, saying that both were on the show, and that Preity donated her winnings, implying that Rani did not. Made me think maybe its not so common after all. You are probably right that it's common for most celebs to do this. Can Rani be noted for not doing it then, haha? BollyJeff || talk 00:17, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Maybe Rani donated hers somewhere else, but it doesn't say. I don't know if you noticed but I did a Wikipedia:Peer review/Rani Mukerji/archive2 for smarojit, and noted that there is not much there except her films. Do you know if she has done anything else notable? BollyJeff || talk 00:50, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Que tal amigo? Ciao!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:04, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I can't take this anymore!!! I've made a bazillion edits today, and most of them have been reversions of numb-skull editors adding crap in filmographies. I can't do anything useful, on WP or at work, so I give up for now. I'm passing the baton to you. /rant BollyJeff || talk 19:39, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Filmfare archives[edit]

Hi, I see that you have added a source in this edit. Is it possible to find such links (archived) for any of the years before 1995. Commander (Ping me) 07:11, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Re: NFA[edit]

Thanks a lot! I have thought of doing it once I am done with all the articles. 15 more to go. I will take up the task of cleaning the individual award pages as well. Let me know if you have other opinion. Thanks. - VivvtTalk 17:59, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Spaces[edit]

Hello Shshshsh! I fully agree with you that there's "nothing wrong with spaces"... they would normally be my personal preference in most cases. While editing Wikipedia however, I remove them because Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Bulleted and numbered lists tells us not to leave them there. I frequently tighten lists before saving changes to most articles I edit, only because it's something I've read about in the WP:MoS. I would not be inclined to do such a thing otherwise ;). Have yourself a great day Shshshsh. Happy editing. :)  -- WikHead (talk) 23:36, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

So I need your opinion here[edit]

Regarding the 90s section in SRK article, I want to add a picture, either of KKHH or DDLJ. Both already uploaded on Wiki and used in other articles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RaneeKKHH.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DDLJ_trainscene.jpg

Both were all time blockbusters, both won him Filmfare best actor award. tho I consider DDLJ to be more important in his career, the KKHH picture is better in quality. So? Ur opinion. --Meryam90 (talk) 04:07, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Jessica Lange[edit]

Saw your ANI notice. Looked at the Jessica Lange article, which is indeed bloated with all sorts of unbelievable fansite nonsense. Still needs a lot of work; I've made a start by removing the word "garnered" or "garner", which appeared a startling sixteen times. Maybe it can go back in once or twice, but someone else should decide where. Best, Blake Burba (talk) 12:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Your opinion please[edit]

Hey Shahid, hope you're well. I'm recruiting your opinion re the Hepburn page, since you are one of the few editors who has expressed an interest in it. I recently got rid of the "Career" main heading, and replaced it with several broader main headings. I can't decide if it is better like this, or if it was clearer keeping everything under "Career". What do you think? Do you think it's better now, or do you prefer how it used to be? --Lobo512 (talk) 21:28, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm still umm-ing and ahh-ing about which layout was better, but I think I leave it like this for now - primarily just because it is a bit more friendly on the eyes than having a wall of text. About the lead, it was suggested in the GA review that it be re-written to better cover all the sections. I agree that it's pretty long though. The reason it's organized like that is because she recommended having it follow the same chronological order as the article...which does make sense. There's no rule about this in WP:LEAD though, so I'd be open to mixing it around a bit. It's so tricky though! Feel free to have a go at redrafting it. I'm so nearly ready to take it to FAC by the way. I don't actually know if it's good enough or not, but I don't want to wait any longer. If it doesn't pass first time, that's fine. But I'm feeling impatient now and just want to see what happens. I spent the whole last week working on the images in preparation. I'm practically an expert on US copyright law now, haha. Ridiculous. I'm going to take it to FAC very soon, once I've done a full read-through/copyedit. Exciting! --Lobo512 (talk) 17:08, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Screen Awards[edit]

Hi Shahid, I was thinking to work on Screen Awards. Do you still think we need to wait for other editors to voice themselves for the movement of Star Screen to simply Screen Awards as discussed on talk page? Or shall we go ahead with the movement. I guess that'll include all the sub pages as well. What do you say? -- Msrag (talk) 13:17, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Talk back[edit]

Hello, how are you? I am fine.

Yes, I became more active recently as the article Kolkata is in FARC, and we had to save it. So, several of us have been trying to improve the article so as to maintain and meet FA criteria. Also, West Bengal is under the scanner, and unless significant work is done, may go to FARC. So, this sudden rise of activity.

How have you been? In both real life and wikipedia? I see Dr Blofeld and you are quite active, and maintaining the same nice collegiality as before. Great to see old pals :) Any new film articles that may soon go to FAC? Regards.--Dwaipayan (talk) 22:09, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Regarding Filmfare award list[edit]

I will be very happy to discuss the matter regarding tabulation on Filmfare Award for Best Actor. I think tabulation enables better visibility, organization and condensation of data(maybe not the code size) on screen. Yeah it's looking odd at first sight but if same thing is done for full award list than will look quite condensed.

Since the history of Film fares is too long; even I think a tabulation of only year wise winners can be done with deletion of nominations. OR Nominations can be mentioned in a separate column for each year. What you say?? Jpmeena (talk) 15:54, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Well only parts of it, but I'm planning to watch it. I was captivated right from the first trailer. What an actress, it's just amazing. I thought your opinion would be more interesting to hear as you must be far more familiar with Thatcher, who was so hated throughout her political career and long afterwards to this day. ShahidTalk2me 17:44, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

How amazingly hot is she?Dr. Blofeld 17:26, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

I think in that picture she is the most perfect looking woman I've ever seen. She looks impossibly good doesn't she?♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:31, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

All of the major problems on here in regards to pushers are caused by Indians! The articles which wear you down the most are Indian. I'm sure you know what I mean in regards to the pushers in the Bollywood articles who will persist in reverting at all costs. The problem is that if their edits are not blatant vandalsim but are poort quality/degrading edits they are not dealt with and you usually end up having to continue reverting as no admin will step in. I'm hthinking of proposing something where experienced editors who've watched articles for years should be given the power in such situations to block newbies from interfering persistently. It is extremely tiring to deal with. If you want a laugh though check out this.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:24, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Citation on NFA[edit]

Hey...wassup...I just thought of asking your opinion on adding citation on individual NFA pages (not main article). I am finished with all the main page articles so it might be a mere copy paste then. what say? Thanks. - VivvtTalk 23:30, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Im lil confused. I don't want to add it as column because citation was not given prior to 25th NFA, so first 24th rows will have nothing in that column, which makes it redundant. But on the other side, if we add it below the row like individual NFA articles, then it doesn't give comfortable sort-ability. Whats your take on this? Let me know if you have other idea.

Screen Award for Best Female Playback[edit]

While looking for sources, I saw that although it was held for about 8 years or so, it was still considered a prominent award ceremony. -- Bollywood Dreamz talk 02:03, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

She has aged remarkably well, hasn't she? :-) BollyJeff || talk 20:49, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for being nice about it. When Hullaballoo Wolfowitz removed a bunch of pics from Priyanka Chopra's page, I went to ask questions about it. The answers seemed pretty clear, so I decided to test the waters by removing similar pics while the discussion was still open. However it doesn't seem like much of a discussion. Not much feedback lately except from SoS. Maybe you should bring up the Rekha pic there to get an opinion. BollyJeff || talk 12:09, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Kajol[edit]

Hi. I've just begun work on the Kajol article. I see that you have included a number of her hit films in the lead, including Yeh Dillagi and Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha. Well, the reason why I included only Gupt and Dushman was because they both were "unconventional roles" for a Hindi film heroine in that era, before the Vidya Balan revolution began. I personally feel that there is no need to include Yeh Dillagi or PTHT, despite the fact that they were hits, because she wasn't doing anything new in them. Smarojit (talk) 07:55, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Not sure if you have applied for this or not but in a recent article on a 2004 independent Filipino movie I found this to be an incredible resource and found lots of Filipino newspaper articles not picked up by google. I strongly recommend this for anyone who edits articles on films and cinema personalities to get this asap as it wil be an invaluable research tool and will often turn up detailed articles which will not appear in google. You can gain access to the full articles by applying for it at Wikipedia:HighBeam/Applications. For sure it'll have tons on Indian actors and films which so far you've been unable to access on google. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:48, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Dimple[edit]

Many links are providing the year as 1984. Why to rely on one article of India Today (a magazine) published for business reasons.http://ibnlive.in.com/news/rajesh-khanna-to-be-discharged-soon-dimple/267667-8-66.html, http://www.daijiworld.com/news/news_disp.asp?n_id=140892 and many more.Onceshook1 (talk) 16:16, 26 June 2012 (UTC) Plus http://movies.ndtv.com/PhotoDetail.aspx?Page=9&ID=6523#talk. India today is a magazine and why whole wiki article needs to rely on that magazine's article alone? Onceshook1 (talk) 16:18, 26 June 2012 (UTC) 1) Kapadia separated from Khanna in 1984 as Khanna was busy with his career and his schedule kept him away and the couple developed misunderstandings and thereby Dimple became interested to act in films again. -- This is what each and every source says.(NDTV most reliable) 2) Plus by 1990, they did a film named Jai Shiv Shankar together (all film websites including IMDB have the detail of the film)and she has campigned for him in his election as MP from Delhi in 1991-92. 3)Also they never got divorced. In fact got together by 1990, though continued to live separately.(Movie Magazine interview with Rajesh Khanna) 4)They were together for their daughter's wedding and she has accompanied Khanna during his hospital visits. (so many references availbale online) 5)But the present article on Dimple Kapadia depicts her relation with her husband is very poor and as if she regrets marrying Khanna. Infact the Dimple wiki article relies mainly on India Today article to say so - that they separated in 1982 and that Khanna put a ban on her and to conclude that she and Khanna never got together!!! 6)Reason for giving the detail of Bobby releasing after her marriage with Khanna is of vital importance. Dimple became an Indian Actress only after her marriage with Khanna occurred in March 1973. Her film Bobby released in November 1973. 7)References as to Dimple was not serious about her acting career and that she, being a fan of Khanna, was more than happy to marry Khanna , when she was proposed by him etc...is not given in present article on Kapadia. Dimple was surprised by kind of success Bobby achieved and though she received film offers, she rejected as wanted to raise her children and concentrate on being a housewife. 7)She became wife of Khanna first and became a famous figure in media - being Khanna's wife and then gained popularity as an actress. 8) Lastly, her own quote to TOI, that she will feel incomplete if she does not do a film with Khanna in todays's time is indicative of fact that her relation with Khanna is not as bad as the present wiki article is projecting it as. Only after Khanna's schedules kept him away most of the time that couple developed misunderstanding and decided to seperate in 1984.They became close friends by 1990, but only lived separately.Onceshook1 (talk) 11:53, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Shahid. I must say that your work on the Preity Zinta article was the chief reason for me to become a serious editor on Wikipedia.

3 featured articles in a week!![edit]

Dearest Shahid, I thought you might like to know that Priyanka Chopra, Rani Mukerji and Sholay all passed FA in one week! Given what I remember about your dreams of promoting articles to FA, especially films like Sholay, I think you'll be very pleased! It's a pity you no longer have time to edit and I miss you a lot still, but the fact that Mother India and Sholay now have FA status is special. Bollyjeff feels exhausted and disheartened by the FA process at present, I hope in time he'll gain a new burst of energy because he is more valued than he thinks! I'm quite critical with actor articles, and have no problems with opposing if I really don't they're as good as they can be, but Sholay in particular is a terrific example of what can now be written about Indian films.Tibetan Prayer 12:37, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Priyanka Chopra (born 1982) is an Indian film actress and singer, and was the winner of the Miss World pageant of 2000. She has become one of Bollywood's highest-paid actresses and one of the most popular celebrities in India. She has won a National Film Award for Best Actress and Filmfare Awards in four categories. She made her acting debut in the Tamil film Thamizhan in 2002. The following year, she starred in The Hero, her first Hindi film release, and followed it with the box-office hit Andaaz. She subsequently earned critical recognition as a seductress in the 2004 thriller Aitraaz. By 2006, Chopra had established herself as a leading actress of Hindi cinema with starring roles in the highly successful films Krrish and Don. After receiving mixed reviews for a series of unsuccessful films, she received critical acclaim for her portrayal of unconventional characters, including a troubled model in the 2008 drama Fashion, a feisty Marathi woman in the 2009 caper thriller Kaminey, a serial killer in the 2011 neo-noir 7 Khoon Maaf, and an autistic woman in the 2012 romantic comedy Barfi! She released her first music single "In My City" in 2012, and her second single "Exotic" in 2013. (Full article...)

Ramdevarabetta hill

Sholay is a 1975 action-adventure Indian Hindi film directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by G. P. Sippy. Shot in the rocky terrain of Ramanagara (pictured), the film follows two criminals, Veeru and Jai (played by Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan), hired by a retired police officer (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan). When first released, Sholay received negative critical reviews and a tepid commercial response, but favourable word-of-mouth publicity helped it to become a box office success. It broke records for continuous showings in many theatres across India, and ran for more than five years at Mumbai's Minerva theatre. The film drew heavily from the conventions of Westerns, and is a defining example of the masala genre. The film's dialogues and certain characters became extremely popular, contributing to numerous cultural memes and becoming part of India's daily vernacular. In 2002, Sholay ranked first in the British Film Institute's list of "Top 10 Indian Films" of all time. It was re-released in 3D in January 2014. (Full article...)

SRK[edit]

There is some talk of pushing this one to GA. There is something I have to know first though. You have always been adamant about the title of the article being 'Shahrukh Khan' instead of 'Shah Rukh Khan'. I have to know why, because it seems to go against WP:COMMONNAME. Is it his birth name? Where is the source? Even if it is, many biographies are titled by common name and then add "born as ..." or something like that either in the first sentence, infobox, or early life sections. What is your rationale for fighting what seems obvious to most? BollyJeff | talk 14:05, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
