    Mithun: A paradoxical Phenomenon
    India is a very mysterious land and it is also just as varied. You have more than 100 languages and as many racial equivalents. In a land so rich it is absolutely impossible to find any chance of agreement on any single issue.

    The query here is who would be crowned the best star actor in this culturally rich diversity. The names that spring to your mind are many. There is Sanjeev Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Kamal Hassan, Dilip Kumar and finally Mithun Chakraborty, not to exclude Uttam Kumar the predecessor king of Bengali cinema.

    Now no one can deny they need to see how the racial question divides India. The northern Indians have never accepted either Bengali or Southern male stars, whatever the persona or talent. While Hema Malini,`Vyjanti Mala and Sharmila Tagore have ruled the box office, no one other than Mithun from regional cinema has ever made into the top three coveted male star positions, as far as box office is concerned never mind the artistic merits of Pyar Jukhta Nahin and Disco Dancer, they were super hits.

    Mithun Chakraborty defies this so called bigotry as he was born of regional cinema and then despite his Bengali accent and looks, became one of the top most star in mainstream Bollywood without having to resort to the charity or support of Yash Chopra or Ramesh Sippy.

    Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan made their super hits and all the quality movies with Sippy’s or Chopra’s. In this way Mithun is a paradox and enigma, as he was labelled a poor man’s Amitabh, despite Jaya Bachchan saying in 70s that he was more talented than Amitabh Bachchan and that is on record.

    Now looking at the resume no other actor has a movie like Mrigaya-The Royal Hunt, and no one ever will have the courage either in Hollywood or Bollywood to attempt that, in fact it seems to have inspired Apocalypto, it’s a tribute to Mrinal Sen, Mithun Chakraborty and Mamta Shanker, which is unique in the world of cinema, even if you disregard the three national awards he won on the basis of his talent, rather than by influencing the jury’s like Hum Tum and Black, which has become rife today, in fact national awards have become a joke in last few years, but he and Sanjeev Kumar won them when they were genuine.

    Hum Tum was a second rate version of Harry Met Sally done by a second rate Sharukh Khan copycat Saif Ali Khan, who landed a national award just as Amitabh Bachchan did in Black, a copy of Miracle Worker the great movie about Helen keller from the 60s, if anyone deserves an award in black it’s the child artist who some how managed a natural performance despite the pretentiousness which engulfed black. How this award was attained only god can answer that question or the jury.

    Mithun Chakraborty has proven himself in multi-starrers like Ghulami opposite Dharmendra and Naseer Uddin Shah and in Hum Paanch too, where he was the best again. But also he has the versatility to play a romantic hero as in Prem Pratigya one of the best romantic movie on Indian screen opposite Madhuri Dixit, and that is what deserves to be called a love story, not the designer monstrosities that the Chopra’s make in the name of love.

    I have yet to see Amitabh Bachchan play a romantic lead himself convincingly. In Kabhi Kabhie and Silsila all he did was frowning and brooding over lost love, in Bemisaal and Jurmana he was angry , name one love story like Aradhana or Amar Prem or Safar where any emotion of love has been ever been expressed by him convincingly in any movie.
    He was the angry young man of the 70s and had comic timing and his physique suited action roles, which were very popular in the 70s and 80s, but name any great love movies and you, come up with zilch; Kabhi Kabhie belongs to Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Sahir and Khayyam.

    There is no doubt whatever anybody says about Mithun Chakraborty’s dancing talent. He was the best and still is the best dancer Hindi screen has produced. Whether it is ethnic or disco dancing he has always been superb. Just watch him in Zeehale Muskin the song from Ghulaami or song from Disco Dancer. They are all done by him stylishly and flawlessly. Kamal Hassan can dance but Rajesh didn’t even try neither did Dilip sahib, as for Amitabh Bachchan he copied the steps from Albela and Mootilal in every movie, at least he has the grace to admit it, but look at it today, Hrithik is the best now and he can do about five steps which he repeats in every movie hilariously.

    Mithun chakraborty was never cast by big movie houses he had to content himself with the so called B- grade cinema, yet he made gems like Ghulaami, Prem Pratigya, Gudia and Jallad.

    His bilinguality is another asset, while no one can deny the richness of Bengali cinema and its diversity, no Hindi actor has contributed to that, but Mithun has to Hindi cinema, that’s a compliment to him and an asset for Hindi cinema.

    The only other actor from India to rival him is possibly Kamal Hassan with Sadma and Ek Duje Ke Liye but his movies have never got the popular Bollywood appeal and he only appeared in a handful, unlike Mithun Chakraborty who is still working in Hindi mainstream like Elaan and Chingaari, despite Mani Ratnam and Amitabh Bachchan trying to discredit him in Guru he still managed too give the best performance in the fist half. The second half is comprehensible to only people who have no clue as to how a screenplay should be written as the journalist of Madhavan and Mithun chakraborty totally disappear in the second half which was a paradox in itself, as the script seemed to indicate the movie was a battle between the immoral industrialist Guru and the honest journalists Madhavan and Mithun Chakraborty.

    To glorify Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan had to dub this incompetent actor very shabbily, in an awfully unrealistic speech from a stroke ridden man, Amitabh Bachchan didn’t even give any consideration to the fact that a man suffering from a stroke would be dysphasic or stutter or stammer, he went on his Baghban like sermonising while Mr Ratnam, the director has been left to be a laughing stock at the expense of the Bachchan's, I wonder what Mr Ratnam’s got to say for himself as I believe Mithun Chakraborty has raised some serious accusations about his role being ripped off, which is obvious as he and Madhavan are absent from the court scenes all together, what an idiosyncrasy and how convenient for the Bachchan’s.

    I feel more sorry for people like them rather than Mithun who has a rich resume with movies like Gudia which were in competition in Cannes (not a single other stars has that merit,) and Titli which again won numerous international awards world over. While Gudia and Titli might not set the Indian box office on fire, their artistic merit like Mrigya-The Royal Hunt is unquestionable.

    Finally can I inform you that in 1987 a Russian magazine voted Mithun Chakraborty as one of the sexiest men on the planet, I think the only other actor is Dharmendra who was voted so by Italians in the 70s. So much for the North Indian bigotry as to Mithun as a second rate to Amitabh Bachchan, in fact I would think Mr Bachchan should take a bow to Mr Chakraborty and learn a few things from Mrigaya, Gudia and Titli rather then keep making second rate remakes of Hollywood classics like Miracle Worker and godfather as Sarkar and Black, after all it is originality which is immortal rather then even a master fake.

    I hope this is not taken as a racial or linguistic comparison. I am talking of the talent of an individual rather than creed or religion, language or age.

    Mithun da talks about his first love

    After watching one of the performances in Dance India Dance Dada could not help sharing his experience of first love. “I had a huge crush on Vaijantimalaji. That time her ‘Sooraj’ movie with Rajendra Kumar ji, was a huge rage…I had gone to see the movie with few of my friends.

    There were many school girls also who had come to catch the movie. There was this beautiful girl sitting behind me. I turned back a couple of times to catch glimpses of her. Then luckily or unluckily her coin fell. I picked it up and when returned it to her she said in a very haughty tone ‘keep it’.

    Probably she thought I was some beggar or something. I felt very insulted. I wanted to make her realize that I’m not that what she is thinking of me. I immediately made up my mind to say ‘I love you’ to her someday and make her also say ‘I love you ‘to me.

    We shared a beautiful relationship thereafter… but she is no more…died of cancer…” quipped an emotional Mithun Chakroborty who was in a rewind mode of his life.

    'My kids call me Mithun!'
    Mithun and Mimoh share a very unconventional relationship; they are not the regular father-son you’d find in families. Mimoh doesn’t address his father as like a son normally would but he calls him ‘Mithun’, just like a contemporary or a friend.

    And that is just one aspect of their ‘not-so-conventional’ relationship. “When I was born I couldn’t speak for a long time and the first word that came out of my mouth was Mithun and we continued that way,” Mimoh explains. Mithun adds, “He got us worried because even at four he wasn’t talking. The doctor assured us that it was okay and some kids take time. He started off finally with the ‘M’ sound and called me Mithun. We were so overjoyed that we never attempted to change it. Now my other kids call me Mithun too!” Mithun has four kids, three sons and a daughter. Mimoh is the eldest.

    Mimoh believes that his father is unique and most of us would definitely agree. The young man reverently says, “He is God to me, I worship him. Despite being a superstar and a busy person, he has always been extremely committed to the family.”

    Talking of Mithun’s legendary culinary skills, Mimoh adds, “Mithun still cooks fabulous dishes for the family. Even now he spends time in the kitchen stirring up something delicious for all of us.”

    The Chakraborty family is an extremely close-knit one and has all their meals together. Mithun elaborates, “It is a ritual. We all sit together for our meals and we share everything, react to each other’s anecdotes and are clued in each other’s lives completely, despite our busy lives.”

    The father and son are the best of friends and discuss everything whether its relationships, girls, life or work. But when it comes to their professional lives they are just like any other senior and junior actor. “Mithun is very professional and strict. He knows exactly where to draw the line between professional and personal lives. He is brutally honest and that always helps,” says Mimoh.

    For Mithun, Mimoh has been this very obedient, disciplined son who has always had good grades, “I never really had to reprimand or punish him during his growing up years. Mimoh has been a very good son and his teachers loved him.”

    The father and son have many special memories together. Talking about when he went to the US with his father, Mimoh shares, “I was 18 when I went to the US with Mithun for my acting classes. We had the most amazing time together — just Mithun and me. This was the first time we were away from the rest of the family and this was the time when we really came close and became friends. We would go out together, shop, cook and eat together.”

    Mimoh quips excitedly, “Mithun is great! He’d promised that he would reward me if I lost weight and took care of myself. Last year he surprised me with a silver Mercedes convertible.”

    The handsome duo will be seen together on the silver screen together soon. The legendary actor and well known dancer Mithun will be soon seen shaking a leg with his son in the forthcoming project of Rose Valley films, Spaghetti 24x7. “Mimoh plays the bartender in the bar called Spaghetti 24x7 and I am the gatekeeper of that bar. We have danced together in this movie,” says Mithun. Mimoh raves about his father, “It was fantastic, nerve wracking crazy, dancing with Mithun! It was an old school-meets-new school, kind of a number. We finished the entire song in one day. Remo Fernandes, our choreographer, lets us do our own thing.”

    Talking about his son’s future Mithun fondly says, “Mimoh has everything in him all he needs now is just a little bit of luck.”

    On his still single status Mimoh laughs, “All my friends especially girls are crazy fans of my father. I don’t have a chance.” With a glint in his eye Mithun adds, “My son’s friends tell him, ‘You are cute but your father is hot!”


    ‘I was 18 when I went to the US with Mithun for my acting classes. We had the most
    amazing time together — just Mithun and me. This was the first time we were away from the rest of the family and this was the time when we really came close and became friends. We would go out together, shop, cook and eat together.’

    Mithun Padmini and Mimoh come together
    IndiaGlitz [Tuesday, February 02, 2010]


    The super hit jodi of the 1985 blockbuster ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahin’ starring the Indian John Travolta our very dear Mithun da and the immensely talented Padmini Kolhapure are coming together in debutant director Gaurav Pandey’s ‘Spaghetti 24X7’.

    And that’s not all; Mithun da’s son Mimoh will also be the part of this film which will be entirely shot in Kolkata.

    When Mithun slashed his chest for Amitabh Bachchan

    On his recent visit on the sets of the dance reality show Lux ‘Dance India Dance’ Amitabh Bachchan bonded with the disco star Mithun Chakraborty after a hiatus of almost 20 long years. Big B who was on the set to promote his forthcoming ‘Teen Patti’ shared some sweet memories with the dancing star.



    The duo had several beautiful memories to choose from and got very nostalgic as they shared anecdotes with the audience from the good old times– be it their bonding on the sets of the blockbuster Agneepath or the time when Mithun Da had slashed his chest and offered his blood to Goddess kali praying for Bachchan’s speedy recovery post his much-talked-about Coolie accident.



    Big B and Mithun Da left the audience and contestants of the show enthralled with the memories of their friendship.

    Mithun Chakraborty undergoes surgery

    superstar Mithun Chakraborty recently underwent a shoulder surgery after injuring himself during the filming of Veer.

    But that isn’t stopping the actor from fulfilling his commitment to Dance India Dance – the television show on which he plays the main judge.

    “Half way through the filming of Veer, Mithunsir hurt himself quite badly. We had shown him to specialists right away but he was recommended surgery which at that time was not an option,” says the star’s manager.

    “If he went through the surgery, he would have to take complete bed rest for at least two months. That would have upset Veer’s schedule. So he survived on painkillers. But now it was become too much and he was instructed by his doctor to undergo the surgery right away,” he adds.

    At 63, Chakraborty is still one of the fittest stars in the industry. Put on a special diet and fitness routine, he surprised many by his physique when Veer released.

    “These days he is only working on Dance India Dance once a week on Mondays and the rest of the week he is locked away at home. That’s the same day he does any other commitments he may have but other than that he is not allowed to step out or do anything that is strenuous,” he informs.

    The manager adds that even today the senior star is getting many offers for movies but with his health requiring care he is taking things slightly easier. At the moment the star has only signed on Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 3.

    Mithun Chakraborty playing Muslim Gangster in Rahmat Ali Bengali Film

    February 22 (Calcutta Tube): Mithun Chakraborty is one of the most versatile talents in Indian cinema. He cannot pride himself on drop-dead looks. Nor is his voice like melting golden honey. Yet, his long shelf-life in Bengali and Hindi cinema speaks of a range that has few parallels in the industry today. For the first time in his long innings, he is playing a Muslim gangster whose life changes tracks completely after a point of time. Produced by Raj Behl and directed by Mumbai-based Partho Ghosh, Rehmat Ali stars Mithun in the title role. Ghosh is known for having delivered Bollywood hits in the past like Agnisakshi and 100 Days.



    Abbaji, a mafia lord, brings up Rehmat, an orphan, as his own. Rehmat grows up to become Abbaji’s right hand man. He represents his mentor and adoptive father in extorting, threatening, intimidating and using every kind of violence at Abbaji’s command without blinking an eyelid. Rehmat succeeds in his evil ventures till a man who calls himself Mr. Mukherjee, stands up to his violent means and insists on sticking to his highly valued qualities of honesty, fairness and justice. Abbaji is a strong supporter of a minister Loknath Rai. When Loknath Rai faces threats from the opposition headed by Shashilal, Mr. Mukherjee is converted into a convenient pawn in this ugly game and is charged with a false case of corruption. He loses his job and his small family fall into direly desperate circumstances. Rehmat unconsciously imbibes some lessons from Mr. Mukherjee’s uncompromising stance in living up to his values.

    Sapna is a bar dancer. She is firmly in the clutches of Shashilal and his brothers. Rehmat rescues her from their clutches and they fall in love. But their love is doomed to tragedy. One of Shashilal’s brothers plants a bomb in the car in which Sapna is travelling. She dies in the blast. The tragedy shatters Rehmat Ali because in Sapna, he had learnt the true meaning of living a good and respectable life, a life he never knew existed. Sapna had once told him that one good deed, if done with a selfless spirit, can wipe out a lifetime of sins committed for one’s own benefit.


    His world changes forever. Rehmat decides to protect the victimized Mr. Mukherjee and his family as atonement for the sins he has committed all his life. Mr. Mukherjee’s family stands threatened by the corrupt and lecherous vigilance officer Surya. He decides to reside with the Mukherjees in their flat. But Mrs. Mukherjee, a rigid Brahmin, does not like to live with a Muslim under the same roof. Rehmat refuses to move out and slowly but surely, is able to weave himself into the hearts of everyone in the Mukherjee family. It marks an emotional journey for Rehmat, a journey from a life of immorality and crime to a life of benevolence, charity and goodness, a life that moves from disbelief to faith. This journey is touched with rich emotional moments of fun, laughter, sadness and kindness. Rehmat Ali, a dreaded gangster, metamorphoses into a benevolent do-gooder. He lives out his penance by protecting an innocent family from oppression and victimization by evil powers that are now also intent on doing away with Rehmat himself. Is his penance over? Does he succeed in his search for goodness triumphing over evil? Or does he surrender to the demands of these evil elements of society?


    Much though the storyline smells of ideals and positive philosophies, Rehmat Ali is not a niche-audience film. It is targeted at the masses and has generous doses of songs put to music by Bappi Lahiri. Rajatava Dutta, Roopa Ganguly and Rituparna Sengupta share screen space with Mithun. The biggest USP of Rehmat Ali is Mithun Chakraborty in the title role of a Muslim gangster-turned-angel-in-disguise. The other USP is that the film will release simultaneously in 100 theatres across West Bengal on February 26.

    In the second season of Dance India Dance, choreographer-judge-mentor Terence Lewis has already proven that no one can portray romance better than him, on stage. This week, he had set Jack and Vandana from his team to waltz to the song Dil kya kare. According to onlookers, the performance resembled champagne guzzling down the throat. It transported everyone on the set to the time they romanced someone, as passionately.

    Grandmaster Mithun Chakraborthy remembered his first love. He said he had a huge crush on actress Vyajayanthimala. “Her film Sooraj movie with Rajendra Kumarji had become a rage. I had gone to see the movie with few of my friends. There were plenty of school girls in the audience. A pretty girl was sitting on the seat behind mine. I turned back a couple of times to catch a glimpse of her. Then, a coin slipped out of her hands. I picked it up for her. When I handed it to her, she said in a haughty tone, “Keep it.” Probably she thought I was a beggar. I felt humiliated. I wanted to tell her that I wasn’t. I thought I’d tell her ‘I love you’ and make her reciprocate it,” says the actor.

    Mithunda adds that they became great pals and dated after that incident. He was moist-eyed too because his dear friend is no more. She died because of cancer. Aww! What a love story!

    FRIDAY film: REHMAT ALI
    MITHUN MAGIC



    Directed by: Partha Ghosh

    Starring: Mithun Chakraborty, Rituparna Sengupta, Roopa Ganguly, Rajatava Datta

    A Mithun film is, well, a Mithun film. Fiery dialogues, item numbers, a dash of romance, dollops of dhishum-dhishum (in slo-mo, of course) and the shower of ceetis and taalis before the curtains come down. Rehmat Ali is no different. So what if it’s a remake of Partha Ghosh’s own Nana Patekar-Raveena Tandon-starrer Ghulam-E-Mustafa.

    Mithun plays to the gallery, yet again, as the messiah. But since it’s Mithun you are not going to yawn. As the opening credits end, Mithun sets the tone: “Jar naamer aage Rehmat ar pore Ali, shara jannat tar jonno bajay taali!” And you know what to expect in the next two hours.

    Rehmat Ali lives for one mission — wiping out evil and saving the rest. And then he meets the sexy bar dancer Sapna (Rituparna). The two romance at the Ramoji Rao Film City in Hyderabad till Sapna dies in a bomb blast, orchestrated by Rehmat’s rivals. The shattered man now dedicates his life to saving a family of four (Roopa is the lady of the house here) from a notorious goon (Rajatava).

    Thumbs up: The Mithun-Rituparna chemistry is there for all to see. And, of course, the item number Jhakas, where our heroine no. 1 looks, well, jhakas!

    Thumbs down: Ghosh has borrowed heavily from his Bolly film no doubt, but Rehmat Ali is not half as engaging as Ghulam-E-Mustafa.
