Before we even begin our discussion, lets put our hearts and minds to an un-deniable & un-biassed fact- If you ever want to see an Indian James Bond, Hrithik Roshan is your best Bet!

Hrithik Roshan, James Bond 007

Hrithik Roshan, James Bond 007

 

To briefly lay his repertoire– Hrithik Roshan is a 40 year old leading Indian actor. He is known worldwide –  for his oodles of charm, Greek god looks, impeccable physique & rare versatility. His broodingly suave presence and hunger for perfection, puts him leaps & bound ahead of his contemporaries in Indian cinema.

 

His selected filmography includes

Kaho na pyaar hai, Koi mil gaya, Lakshya, Krrish-2 &3, Dhoom-2, Zindagi na milegi dobara, Agneepath’ .

Seemingly, he can rightly pull off lover  & fighter’s combo with masterful superiority. His on-screen brilliance in his roles, that sway in romance & action have brewed this whole discussion.He is five feet & eleven-a-half inches tall,wears coolness with ease and aces nods of acceptance with sharp looking suits. All these befitting of a perfect spy under discussion.

It makes him a thoughtful prospect for the role of James Bond. The recently released movie Bang-Bang has torched this idea. This possibility has turned a fond out-cry, among his fans around the world.

‘The role of James Bond is simply the fantasy of every man and soaring ambition of every actor’.

 

Can he get shortlisted by MGM among the finest in the world?

 

lets see-

Q. But firstly, how do we describe James Bond ? before the selection of actor is discussed.

Ans. The character of James Bond owes royalty to the genius of Ian Fleming‘s first James Bond novel (1952).

 

James bond, Commonly defined – ‘He is a brooding man of mystery, who is irresistible to ladies and world’s most favorite spy – 007’.

James Bond, 1952

Ian Fleming inspiration– Ian Fleming was a war veteran and naval commanding officer, who served in world war-II. His desire to write a spy novel got inspired from – his wartime experiences, his sense of esteem about British spy’s achievements in World war-I and him closely observing  individuals, whom he came across during his tenure in Intelligence division.

Ian Fleming,at work

He wrote his first novel in the spring of 1952. He devoted two months to its completion and also used this time to drew away from  personal problems. He was well-known to be a heavy drinker and smoker.

James Bond stories– His Plot is originally set in post world-war Britain, conceptualizing a free world against the soviet union situation and enemy leaders of complex-obscure origin (Slavic, Mediterranean, or Central European ). It was often said, that thewhole plot was set to pandering the inflated & insecure self-image of British in post war era.

Structure & Character of james Bond– The bond character would vacillate between – duty & sacrifice, love & death, cupidity & ideals, Luxury & discomfort, Chance & planning.

 

Bond’s character– A Good looking heterosexual male, cold in  eyes & cruel mouth(jaw-line), dark-short hair, measures half inch shy of  6 feet & weighs round-about 76 kg.

 

Fleming's bond

Fleming’s bond

Bond is depicted as a spy in his mid to late thirties. His idiosyncrasy and habits would involve –  simple dining ( like cold beef & potatoes), heavy drinking (preferably dry martini or scotch) & heavy smoking (60- 70 sticks a day). Along would compliment an affinity for drugs, at eventful occasions ( professional moments or psychological reasons). His life suffers with mild amnesia and his world is full with laws of gun. Where murder is done as a playful trick & enemy is a wild beast, who savages with no thinking. However, bond is – perspicacious, skillful and deals with equanimity.

Bond’s favourite  weapon-A Walter pistol

 

Bond is also an exceptional marksman, one of the best in the secret service. His abilities cuts through other fields of action such as – hand-to-hand combat, underwater swimming, playing golf & driving fancy automobiles. He loves to shoot with an automatic pistol ( .25 ACP Beretta or Walther PPK 7.65mm) and drives elegantly, in his Mark II Continental Bentley.

Adaptations to fleming’s bond – After Fleming’s death in 1964, there have been lot of adaptations to his novels with screen-writing,new novels & setting the plot in the current times. One of the most recent being the work of William Boyd’s bond novel ‘solo’, released in 2013. Boyd agrees that there have been massive changes, that have shifted the bond movies far from Fleming’s projection. However, there are lot of intrinsic things than cannot be changed about the story. It is most certain that the next movies will focus on adaptation in current scenario .William Boyd agrees that his story of a plot in africa, a 1969 civil war is highly unlikely to become a movie.

William Boyd undeniably states about the bond character– “There is a certain amount of weaponry, automobiles and two beautiful women he has relationships with. It would not be a Bond novel without these things in it”

 

Pros and cons in selection– MGM’S Selection is a long race of worldwide voting and nomination, based on popularity and actor’s international impact. It is followed by shortlisting, based on actor’s filmography and screen tests (action scenes for the movie or previously performed). It is long before the MGM Lion roars in agreement.

if Hrithik is to be chosen as the new bond, following shall fall for & against him in the process-

 

1. Pros

a. Looks and physical description of Fleming’s bond matches picture-perfect with Hrithik (almost 6 feet, thin ,dark short hair, elusive & alluring spy)

b. Bond attires in sharp suits & carries attitude which is cool yet sharp ,brooding yet engaging & smooth yet active. Hrithik conduct these passionately since the beginning of his career.

c. Bond movies are majorly themed on romance-action, which is reflective of Hrithik’s major filmography.

d. Bond is a spy in his late thirties. Hrithik is perfectly aged for that role at 40.

 

2 Cons-

a. Ethnicity– Bond is primarily British in origin. Hence, it has to be a historic decision to choose someone from Indian background. Most stalwart actors have turned down the role( clint eastwood, burt reynolds & adam reynolds) on their professional opinions that bond must be enacted by a British actor. Hrithik will find that a tough ground to break, even with his exceptional considerations.

b.English accent– Something that is non-negotiable, bond must and must have an authentic English accent.If an indian accent slips through screening, with a flat tongue or indian accent tourettes start acting up in the scenes. It is simply a cross-marking by the MGM and British director.

C. Bollywood and world image – Though bolly-wood has broken lot of grounds at different levels, with personal or combined achievements. It is still not as widespread,critically acclaimed and popular as American or British cinema. Hrithik will find it tough to sway the votes in his favour. He will not only face accomplished British actors, in race for the seventh title but needlessly carry hopes of Indian cinema to break grounds with his single spectacular achievement. Quite Simply, Indian actor chosen for a bond role will be the breakthrough of the century for bolly-wood at world stage.

MGM LION, will it roar for Hrithik?

MGM LION, will it roar for Hrithik?

D. Domestic comparisons & mongering– India being largest democracy in the world, filled with loudest and most chaotic mouths. The whole scenario will break clouds over apple to apple comparisons. However unimportant, Hrithik will face lot of criticism at home,sully comparisons, news-hour debates and media created competition with Indian stalwart actors. These all names are in no less measure, deserving of a consideration-

 

 

Now, lets look at some of the stalwart International actors, that our home boy is up-against. Can he shine among the light of these giants? All these actors are well-earmarked,critically noted &publicly approved of favourable bond choices.

Finally, have a look at these six actors who have played James Bond over the years.

Now, have one final look at the man on our weighing scale-

Hrithik Roshan,James Bond

Hrithik Roshan,Seventh James Bond?

 

Choose to vote for or against this idea

 

 

Surely, India has a big advantage with a large populous supporting Hrithik Roshan for the role of James Bond. The same frenzy helped Taj Mahal get voted as  world’s no.1 wonder of the world, among the top seven. Hrithik Roshan is no less than a wonder man to the masses of Indian cinema viewers.

 

Note of Dedication: At last,this post and information is intended for all Hrithik Roshan’s fans. It is however dedicated to the masterful acting skills, dialogue delivery and on-screen performances of stalwart actor Late. Jeremy Brett.

He is one of my all time favorite actors and best to portray as Sherlock Holmes. Owing to reasons best known to him, Mr. Brett denied the role of James Bond, as offered to him before Sean Connery.

However, it is my firm belief that he would have out-classed the performances of even Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan by quantum proportions. Here it is ( my dedication),to the Best James Bond that could never happen somehow.He smiles with his perspicacity & broodiness,those thoughtful depths unknown to most men. A picture of him as Sherlock Holmes is below-

below are my compiled favorite lines,quotes, widom from the diary of great martyr shaheed bhagat singh i divided it into two parts,hope you will find wisdom among the pages of this great young man..

after going through it,i compiled below some of the content that was utmost appealin to me,you may go through the original page and compile your own version.here is content quoted from different authors,scholars,poets & some written by  bhagat singh durin his time in prison,the diary was later retrieved and compiled for public view.the work written and compiled reflects his knowledge on socialism,politics,history, and a wide variety of subjects,however nvertheless goin through this page i would recommend one intersted to self read the whole diary which is about 80 pages, filled with brilliance & pure abstract knowledge

 

Page 69 Aim of communists

: —” The communists disdain to conceal their views and aim. They openly declarethat their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing socialconditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. Theproletarians have nothing to loose but their chains. They have a world to winWorkingmen of all countries , unite

 

Voice of the People

:—–The Goverment we know have all ruled , in the main, by indifference of people;they have always been govt of a minority of this or that fraction of

the countrywhich is politically conscious. But when the gaint wakes , he will have his way ,and all that matters to the world is whether he will wake in time

” It so often happens.” wrote Lenin in July 1917, ” that when events take asudden turn, even an advanced party cannot adapt itself for some time to thenew coditions. It goes on repeating yesterdays watch words which under the

new circumstances have become empty of meaning and which have lostmeaning unexpectedly , just in proportion as the change of in events has

� �

been unexpected. “Lesson of October P17

 

 

 

 

Tactics and Strategy

: ——-In politics as in war , tactics means the art of conducting isolated operations ;strategy means the art of victory , that is the actual seizure of power.P 18: 0 :

Propoganda and Action

:—-And it is an extremely sudden change, when the party of Proletriat passes fromprepration , from propaganda and organisation and agitation to an actual strugglefor power and an actual insurrection against bougeoisie . Those in the party whoare irresolute or sceptical , or compromising, or cowardly ….. oppose theinsurrection, they look for theortical arguments to justify their opposition, and theyfind them all ready made , among their opponents of yesterday.Trotsky p 19

Page 72

” It is necessary to direct ourselves, not by old formulas but by new realities.”Lenin p25He always fought for the future against the past.p41—————————————————–But a moment comes when the habit of thinking that the enemy is strongestbecomes main obstacle to victotry.Trotsky p 48…… But in such circumstances not every party will have its Lenin…….. What does it means to loose the moment?

LIII

 

 

 

 

All the art of tactics consists in this to to match the moment when thecombination of circumstances is most favourable……( Circumstances had produced the combination and Lenin said ) The crisis mustbe settled in one way or another ” Now or never” repeated Lenin.

 

 

 

Opportune Moment

: —–Time is an important factor in politics. It is thousand times more so in war andrevolution. Things can be done today that cannot be done tomorrow. To raise inarms to defeat the enemy , to seize power, may be possible today and tomorrowmay be impossible. But, you will say , to seize power means changing the courseof history; is it possible that such a thing can depend on a delay of 24 hours?Even so, when it comes to an armed insurrection, events are not measured bylong yards of politics but by short yards of war. To lose a few weeks , a fewdays , sometimes even one day , may mean giving up the revolution , may meancapitulation.Political cunning is always dangerous , especially in a revolution . You maydeceive the enemy, but you may confuse the masses who are following you.

 

 

The inefficient Leader

: —…….. There are two kinds of leaders who incline to drag the party back at themoment when it should go fastest. One kind also tends to see over whelmingdifficulties and obstacles in the way of revolution and looks at them —–consciously or unconsciously — with the desire of avoiding them. They alter Marxism into a system for explaining why revolutionary action is impossible.The other kind are mere superficial agitators. They see never any obstacle untillthey can break their heads against them. They think they can avoid realdifficulties by floods of oratory. They look at every thing with supreme optimism ,and , naturally change right over when something has actually to be done.

continued from last page:——Religion is the sigh of oppressed creature the feelings of a heartless world just asit is the spirit of inspiritual conditions. ” It is the opium of the people”The people cannot be really happy untill it has been deprived of illusory happinesby the abolition of religion. The demand that the people should shake itself freeof illusion as to its own condition is the demand that it should abondon acondition which needs illusionThe weapon of criticism cannot replace the critiism of weapons. Physical forcemust be overthrown by physical force as soon as it takes possesion of themasses

Page 46Democracy

: —-Democracy is theoratically a system of political and legal equality . But inconcrete and practical operation it is false, for there can be no equality , not evenin politics and before the law , so long as there is glaring in equality in economicpower. So long as the ruling class owns the workers jobs and the press

andthe schools of country and all organs for the moulding and expression of publicopinion; so long as it monopolise all trained public functionaries and disposes of unlimited funds to influence elections , so long as the laws are made by rulingclass and the courts are presided over by members of that class, so long as

XXXIV

lawyers are private practitioners who sell their skill to the heighest bidder andlitigation is technical and costly , so long will the nominal equality before the lawbe a hollow mackery.In a capitalist regime the whole machinary of democracy operates to keep theruling class monority in power thrugh the sufferage of working class majority, andwhen the bourgeois goverment feels itself endangered by democratic institutions,such institutions re often crushed without compunction.[ p 58][ From Marx to Lenin ][ by Morris Hillquit ]Democracy does not secure ” equal rights and a share in all political rights for every body , to what ever class or party he may belong ” (Kautsky) It only allowsfree political and legel play .For the existing economic inequalities ………….Democracy under capitalism is thus not general, abstract democracy but specificbourgeois democracy ………. or as Lenin terms it ————- democracy for bourgeois

” Term ”

Revolution

” defined ” :—-” The conception of revolution is not to be treated in the police interpretation of term , in the sense of an armed rising. A party would be mad that would choosethe method of insurrection on principle so long as it has at its disposal different ,less costly , and safer methods of action. In that sense , social democracy wasnever revolutioanry on principle . It is only in the sense that it recognises thatwhen it attains political power, it cannot employ it for any other than the abolitionof the mode of production upon which thw present system rests. “” Karl Kautsky

Revolutionary Dictatorship

:—Revolution is an act in which one section of the population imposes its will uponthe other by rifles, bayonets , guns and other such exceedingly authoritarianmeans. And the party which has won is necessarily compelled to maintain its ruleby means of that fear which in arms inspire in the reactionaries. If the Communeof Paris had not relied upon the armed people as against bourgeoisie , would ithave maintained it self more than twenty- four hours? Are we not, in contrary, justified in reproaching the commune for having employed this authority toolittle ?”F.Engles: 0 :

: —Bourgeoisie Democracy while constituting a great historical advance incomparison with feudalism nevertheless remains and cannot but remain , a verylimited , a very hypocritical institution , a paradise for the rich and a trap and adelusion for the exploited and for the poor

:—–The impatient idealist — and without some impatience a man hardly prove effective — is almost sure to be led into hatered by the opposition, and disappointments which he encounters in his Endeavour to bring happiness to the world.

Arbitrariness

:–Kautsky had written a booklet with the title “Proletariate Dictatorship” and haddeplored the act of Bolsheviks in depriving the burgeoisie people from right to vote. Lenin writes in his “Proletarian Revolution ” : — P 77Arbitariness ! Only think what a depth of meanest subserviency to bourgeoisie and of the most idiotic pedantry is contained in such a reproach , when thoroughly

XLIX

bourgeios and for the most part even reactionaries jurists of capitalist countrieshave in the course of , we may almost say , centuries , been drawing up rulesand regulations and writing up hundreds of volumes of various codes and laws ,and of interpretations of them to oppress the workers , to bind hand and foot (of)the poor men , and to place a hundred and one hindrances and obstacles in the way of the simple and toiling masses of people — when this isdone , the bourgeois Liberals and Mr. Kautsky can see no “arbitrariness”! It is allLaw and Order ! It has all been thought out and written down, how the poor manis to be kept dwn and squeezed. There are thousands and thousands of bourgeois lawyers and officials able to interpret the laws that the workers andaverage peasent can never break through their barbed wire entanglements. Thisof course ,is not a dictatorship of the filthy or profit-seeking exploiters who are drinking the blood of the people. Oh it is nothing of the kind! It is pure

democracy which is becomin

and purer everyday. But whenthe toiling and exploited masses for the first time in history seprated byImperialist War from their brothers across the frontier, have constructed their Soviets, have summoned to the workers of political constrution , the classeswhich the bourgeois used to oppress and to stupefy, and begun themselves tobuild up a new proletarian State, begun in the midest of raging battles ,in the fireof Civil War, to lay down the fundamental principles of “a State without exploiters”, then all the scoundrals of the bourgeoisie , the entire band of blood suckers,with Kautsky, singing obliger to scream about arbitariness!

Capitalism and Commercialism :—-

Rabinder Naths adress to an assembly of Japanese students :–

XXXII

” You had your own industry in Japan ; how scrupulously honest and true it was,you can see by its products – by their grace and strength , their conscientiousness in details where they can hardly be observed . But the tidalwave of falsehood has swept over your land from that part of the world wherebusiness is business and honesty is followed merely as the best policy. Have younever felt shame when you see the trade advertisements , not only plastering thewhole town with lies and exaggerations, but invading the green fields , where thepeasents do their honest labour, and to hilltops which greet the first light of themorning?….. This commercialism with its barbarity of ugly decorations is aterrible menance to all humanity , because it is setting up the ideal of power over perfection . It is making the cult of self seekig exult in its nakedshamelessness……………..

page 39

… Its movements are violent , its noise is discardently loud. It is carryingits own damnation because it is trampling into distortion. The humanity uponwhich it stands .It is strenously turning out the money at the cost of happiness……… The vital ambition of the present civilization of Europe is to havethe exclusive possesion of devil.

Karl Marx on Religion :——

Man makes religion ; religion does not make man. Religion , indeed, is the self consciousness and the self feeling of man who either has not yet found himself or else ( have found himself) has lost himself once more. But men is not anabstract being squatting down somewhere outside the world . Man is the world of men , the state , society. This state ,this society produces religion, produces aperverted world consciousness, because they are a perverted world. Religion isthe generalised theory of this world its encylopaedic compend , its logic in apopular form ……….. The fight against religion is, therefore a direct compaignagainst the world whose spiritual aroma is religion
