Retiring graciously
by RC on Jul 27, 2013 01:20 PM

Deven Verma-- he was a good actor of his times. I particularly loved his straight forward outlook to today's cinema-- his statement "I would get put off when a young girl who is assisting on the sets would come up to me smoking and snap her fingers and say ‘Chaliye saab aapko bulaya hai’. I would get upset.We used to be treated well, with tehzeeb (manners) but I find today’s youngsters have lots of attitude. I can’t blame them -- the new generation is like that, their attitude is different. So if it doesn’t make you happy, you should not work". This shows he was not in cinema for the money factor but it was something he loved doing. He is not happy with the changes in cinema now, so he quit-- that's retiring on a high. Salaam Deven saab!

Without any doubt, DV has been a remarkable comedian with his own special niche.But some things are noteworthy.Though he acted in innumerable films down the years, his act could not rise above the script except in "Angoor" where he had to compete with a thespian Sanjeev Kumar.In the entire writeup he has saved himself commenting on the works of his contemporaries like Mehmood, kishore kumar,mukri,rajendra nath,keshto mukherjee and the recent johny lever. Again all the six flicks he made bombed badly at the box office

Silver / Golden Jubilees

In the article, it is mentioned - "... if you give a good performance but the film works for just seven days, it means people have not seen you (in those days, films had silver and golden jubilees of 50 to 100 days)."
Actually, Silver / Golden Jubilee meant un-interrupted run of 25 weeks and 50 weeks respectively.
