"Phir Mile Sur"-A Bollywood Overdose

“Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” launched in 1988 is an Indian song focusing on national integration and unity.This video was intended to instill a sense of pride and promote unity amongst Indians, highlighting the different linguistic communities and societies that live in India — India’s unity in diversity.
The concept for Mile Sur was developed in 1988 by Lok Seva Sanchar Parishad, and promoted by Doordarshan (then India’s sole TV broadcaster) and India’s Ministry of Information. It was launched for the first time on Independence Day 1988, after the telecast of the Prime Minister’s speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort
Recently,on the eve of Republic Day, the New version of Mile Sur, known as “Phir Mile Sur” was  launched at a grand event at the Taj Land’s End, Mumbai.
Was it launched to commemorate our 61st Republic Day Celebration or to showcase some Bollywood Promo??!!!
Where are the people who brought Laurels to India like sania mirza,sachin,rahul dravid,kalam,narayan murthy etc in this video?
It is also disappointing to see this song going HAYWIRE many times!!!
Some army men could have represented the TAJ(instead of Amitabh Bachchan)
Karnataka could have been shown better. Kavitha Krishnamurthy being a non-kannadati is singing in Kannada! While Deepika Padukone,Aishwarya Rai  hailing from Karnataka are singing in Hindi which is such an irony!
Also people from Karnataka like Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble,Sudeep,Prakash Padukone,Narayan Murthy,Sudha Murthy etc could have been included.
Just like Surya,Mahesh Babu and Mamooty sang in their respective languages Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, even Kannada actors or poets could have sung in Kannada.(instead of Kavita Krishnamurthy)
ISRO which made astonishing discoveries of water on moon,reasons for existence of water on moon, or Chandrayaan,Chandrayaan Sara which made India Proud are not shown!!
Where are the poets,business tycoons like Tata,Azim Premji,Narayan Murthy, renowned scientists like Abdul Kalam in this video?
IT industries which is the major “Money Grinder” in India is also not shown.
Hockey,being our National Game is conveniently ignored in this video
Also the tune of “kya bolti tu” is added, people behind sonu when he is singing look like they are undergoing some torture. Shah Rukh Khan needs to give his trademark “wide open arms” a rest. So needs Salman Khan to  his banian and biscep flaunting!
Can someone tell me how does Deepika’s leg flaunting promote National Integrity?She could have worn something better. She looks like she is romancing Ranbir.
Ranbir on hill top,Shahid with mike is extremely disgusting.
No temple,mosque or church is shown,only golden temple is shown.. does India have only one golden temple?
Army men are cramped at the end of the video. Indeed army,nsg,raf men were the ones who ceased the 26/11 attacks… where were all these celebrities singing in this patriotic video (flaunting Patriotism) when India was attacked on 26/11??
Any non-indian seeing this song will think India is JUST Bollywood.
The SOUL of the Original Mile Sur which was Enchanting is Lost! It looks more like a Bollywood Overdose than a “Patriotic Song”!! Extremely Disappointing! It is a Nightmare and an Insult to Original Mile Sur!
