Let Satyamev Jayate and Aamir Khan do their job.



Satyamev Jayate is four episode old. It was one of the most awaited show of this decade as Aamir Khan promoted it as his most ambitious project. The content of the show was under extreme secrecy and till the launch of first episode no one was able to make a guess regarding content.

When Satyamev Jayate first episode was aired, it triggered a discussion on the standards of the program. The program was way ahead of any documentary or investigative piece of journalism done by News Channel’s or Publication’s in India.

I have found a pattern in Indian news channel that their is an urgent need for main stream news channel to be entertaining. Big Boss Indian version of Big Brother has found itself as a status of news on national News channel.

It all started with one basic problem One media group is running entertainment and news channel both. So it has become the moral responsibility of news channel to promote the programs running on same group entertainment channel. It has seriously hampered the quality of content.

Satyamev Jayate and Aamir Khan is a big news and easy topic to write but somewhere it appear’s that News channel didn’t like the content of Satyamev Jayate. The issue with which Aamir Khan is dealing in Satyamev Jayate are extremely sensitive and it has affected million’s of people in India. I have found that it has become increasingly difficult for news media to criticize or create news out of Satyamev Jayate.

Comparing the show with any other entertaining or reality show like KBC ( Hosted by legendary Amitabh Bachhan) or

Big Boss ( Hosted by Salman Khan) because of the genre of Show. In Indian television history not a single Bollywood actor has attached them-self directly with any show which is dealing with major social evil and problems in India. Many section of media has tried to compare the Aamir TV debut with Amitabh Bachhan KBC debut or with Oparah Winfrey.

The result which Aamir Khan Show has produced in last One month.

1. Created a consensus and urgency in Rajasthan Government to take action against all the Doctors who were involved in abortion of Girl fetus.

2. First time in India, a bill has been passed for protection of children against sexual offences. The bill was passed just after the show. Satyamev Jayate has certainly created an urgency among the lawmakers to pass the bill.

3. Satyamev Jayate has taken Medical Council of India and professional ethics of Doctor’s directly in two episodes.

Satyamev Jayate is a show which needed the support from every section of media and audience to create a massive impact on the system and society of India. Almost 99% of the show which audience are seeing on entertainment channel have nothing to do with any positive impact on society. Satyamev Jayate is also making money but it is the Giant effort from an individual who is using his clout and stardom to create an impact.


Almost all section of media specially News channel and publication house should try to do something which Aamir Khan is doing through Satyamev Jayate. To produce and create a show like Satyamev Jayate it requires a intellectual, Financial and creative effort and chances are very high that returns will not be high.  We should scrutinize Satyamev Jayate on the basis of the quality of the work and the impact the show is creating. Let Satyamev Jayate and Aamir Khan do their job because He is doing a job which should have come from the basket of Top news Channel and Publication house of India.
