Doordarshan to telecast bouquet of lively programmes on New Year’s eve

NEW DELHI: In a new twist to its New Year programmes, Doordarshan News has announced special awards for the best news story of the year.

 DD News has listed 10 top coverages of the year and will give three top and 50 other prizes. Voting is on till 31 December night.

The news stories include the General Elections, the Swachhta Mission, Kailash Satyarthi winning Nobel Prize, Kashmir Floods, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s American visit, Mars Mission, MH370 Disappearance, Peshawar School attack and so on.

DD National will mark the day with a 2014 news roundup from 8 pm to 9 pm, variety programmes  by regional kendras including Delhi for their respective regions from 9 pm to 10 pm, and the national telecast of the variety show ‘Masti ka Dhamaal – Aaya Nayaa Saal’ by the Mumbai Kendra of DD.

DD Bharati moves away from noisy entertainment to the quiet realms of home with yesteryears’ evergreen classics from 7:00 pm onwards on 31 December. The channel is marking New Year’s Eve by telecasting two choice light-hearted Hindi feature films from two different eras.

Chhalia is a 1960 Hindi drama film directed by Manmohan Desai; it stars Raj Kapoor, Nutan, Pran, Rehman and Shobhna Samarth.  Raj Kapoor played like almost patented a simple guy with a heart of gold. Kalyanji Anandji composed the music and has given Mukesh’s most popular songs “Chhalia Mera Naam, “Dum dum diga diga”, “Mere tootey hue dil se”’.

Shagird is a 1967 Indian Bollywood comedy film directed by Samir Gunguly. The film stars Joy Mukherjee and Saira Banu in lead roles. It is one of the few Hindi films made over the last 60 years that find a place of pride in the pantheon of classic comedies. The inimitable I.S. Johar as Professor Brij Mohan, with his deadpan expression and unique dialogue delivery, was the perfect foil for the exuberance of Joy Mukherjee as Ramesh.

Akashvani brings 'Guldasta'; a bouquet of programmes from all kendras of All India Radio and a programme on music from 11:10pm.
