Star Pravah - One more Marathi Channel



Star TV is launching a new Marathi general entertainment channel called Star Pravah. The hoardings all over the city are looking promising... hope they live up to the hype.

The Jewel in the Crown of the line up is the serial 'Raja Shivchatrapati’. It has been conceived and produced by Nitin Desai... and from the rushes seen on Star Mazha we can expect a large part of the Marathi Janta glued to the TV sets at the start of the week @ 8:30 pm.

3M wonders as to how many Marathi channels can be sustained?... ETV Marathi, Zee Marathi, Mee Marathi, Saam Marathi, DD Sahyadri, Zee Talkies, Star Mazha, Zee 24 Taas, IBN Lokmat... and now Star Pravah!

the dialogues in the teaser are awesome.......it gives a rush of blood....they dont show the faces..though....there is scope for a huge movie on Shivaji and two people who i personally think can do great justice are ashutosh gowariker and Shyam Benegal.....

They had shown the glimpses of the inaugural shot of the serial @ ND studios... and the sets looked grand!

I don't think one movie will do justice... probably a 2 part movie is necessary...

The fact that "Janata Raja" did packed shows in North India indicates that a movie on Shivaji's life should do commercially well across the country...

I don't know about the director... but Jaya Bacchan should produce it!!! ;-)

Buddhila akkal ali tar!
I also wish ashutosh would direct a movie on shivaji someday.I would not vote for shyam as BOSE was tampered after the interval.
Secondly,the promos of shivaji on star pravah were good,but when i found out that Amol Khole was playing th role of shivaji i was dissapointed.I dont think he'll be able to pull that role.I'm sure he would make it too dramatic.I've also observed that he is a mediocre host.Prasad oak would have been a better choice for this role.We want some one to direct SHIVAJI who would cast n present shivaji like christopher nolan gave the world a new BATMAN!
