Resul Pookuty accuses Satyamev Jayate of doctoring the show


More skeletons are tumbling out of the closet for ‘Satyamev Jayate’. Oscar-winning sound specialist, Resul Pookuty, has accused that the background music of Satyamev Jayate was doctored. He said, “‘Satyamev Jayate’ was completely a doctored show” since a lot of sound post-production work was done on the show. It was treated like a film by mixing the sounds so that the audiences could be blackmailed. Although the show’s team including anchor Aamir Khan are yet to react on Resul’s statement, this is not the first time that the show has been back lashed. There have been no comments from the director of the show or from Amir, so far. Satyamev Jayate ended it superb journey last month with the special 13thepisode on Independence Day. The unconventional reality show had focused on female infanticide, child sexual abuse, manual scavenging, and untouchability in its twelve griping episodes.

Some now feel that the goodwill generated by the show and it’s far reaching affects on the people, nullify the negatives revolving around its production. So though we respect Mr. Pookuty, it becomes difficult to side with him. Moreover such a comment after the shoe has ended doesn’t offer much credibility.

Earlier controversies surrounding the show was it title song ‘o re chraiya’, which singer Palash Sen said had been lifted from his album, infringing copyright. Amir emotions on the screen too have been under scanner. Particularly when he gets so engaged with the victim’s plight and starts crying. Satyajit Bhatkal, the director of the show had said, “Those who are saying Aamir is acting are basically saying, 'Itna kyun rota hai?' If you have ever interacted with Aamir, you'll know that he cries on a regular basis for the smallest of things. Seriously, he's the kind of person who can start crying in an ad. See, he is a sensitive person. People have told him the most heart-rending stories of loss, how 20 years of life have been spent in terror because a woman's husband beats her or a woman tells him that in eight years she's had six abortions. These are touching stories to listen to and any sensitive person will be moved.” We agree.

The show had to face so more trouble with two fake sites coming up with the same name. 

Success has many facets. It brings forth jealousy too. The audience though is not concerned and is eagerly waiting for the season 2 to roll.
