[Resolved] ICE-Balaji Telefilms — Fake and fraud

32 Reviews
This institute is fake. It is not even run by Balaji Telefilms. They have permission of just using the logo and brand name to befool people. The faculty is either lazy or crazy, always obssessed with themselves and trying to skip teaching. Moreover there is no practicals in the course. Only class room talk. At the end of the course you will be hepled in no way to finish your diploma. There are many harassing norms you have to follow.

You cant take the camera out of the campus, neither will the management take initiative to facilitate your shoot outside the campus.

Even within the studio campus, you cant shoot everywhere.And you can shoot in the sets if its available, if there is no serial crew working. Trust me, thy treat the students like second class citizen.

The camera department has only one P2 camera, which is also interlaced not progressive! the other one always stays at the service center for repairing.

Dont fall in their trap. The marketing guys are behind your money only. They will tell you all kind of lies to persuade you.

The management there at Mumbai is horrible. One Kalpesh Thakkar is a psycho who always shout at students instead of listening to their problems. And his head Jasmeet Bhasin is the biggest fraud in town, who deny you everything after sucking the fees out of you. No workshop no masterclass is ever arranged by him, although he promises to do so. Even his indecent side comes out when you ask him or support.

The diploma has to be shot in a span of 8hrs, and there also the team is decided by the management. The students have no freedom of their own regarding their work. The management and the faculty is always about each other to the students. Its a real 'Saas-bahu' atmospshere! Its hell. Moreover the faculty here has rarely worked in the industry.

Its a total con. Dont fall in their traps. The marketing guys are the biggest actors around here. Beware!!!!

He himself is a fake guy & must be a person belonging to the competition..Since I'm also a student of ICE & found it absolutely insync with communication made to us..

You are saying nobody is allowing you to take camera home..My Question is why do you need a camera back home ..We are here to study not to buy out the cameras..

There are plenty of guys who are working with different production setup & are proud to be a part of ICE..
Shruti(lead-Pavitra Rishta), Arjit(Lead-Bade ache lagte hain0, Ashwin Bangera(Balaji), Gaurav arora(Asst. Director with Sanjay leela Bhansali ), Amit kumar(AD with Anurag Kashyap), Qasim Bilal(Lead Mcdonalds, Samsung, TVS) & so may to name a few..

Moreover..every article of Ekta Says that "I have launched the ICE for training"..

Guys pls. check facts & figures personally on your own before believing in this baseless crap..
but how to u know about balaji telefilms?
but how to u know about balaji telefilms?
just go to facebook & type the ice institute there are 6500 students writing in favor of ICE- Balajitelefilms..

Where are you my dear friend???
i agree wid u..loot lia salo ne :/

from a modeling batch..
ek succesful model ka name b bta de bey? sale oppurtunities k wade krte the...aur abi tk security money tk wapas ni di
I can say there is No support after course, My son has did modelling
course.. but last two years he has not got a single project.. and
when they are selecting for course.. giving big picture for the
career.. which. is not happening.. No body is respecting ICE
certificate even within group..
I agree with Dev. ICE is not a good institute.They organize seminar in different cities and represent themselves that they have created lot of TV stars by Balaji Telefilms and make you fool by taking fake auditions and shows that they have only limited seats and ask you to submit 20, 000 rupees either by cheque or cash.Now their game begins, They keep on calling you.When will u submit remaining fees, which is around 3, 50, 000 for 3 months.That is costlier than Engineering and Management courses.
So i suggest you not to go there. I[censored] are really serious about acting join any theater, which is free or join any cheaper institute.
Sumit007bhai tune bacha liya mujhe bhai mujhe bhi ek call aayi thi mai jis city mai rehene wala hun wo log us he city mai aane.waale hai 31 october ko mujhe bhi bola tha ki aap ko aana hoga hotel mai aur aapka personal interview hoga aur 300 rupaye fees hogi counsiling ki aur agar select hogaye toh aapko apni seat holdkarne ke liye 20, 000 thousand dene honge
Jaise ki bhai tune bola.abhi same bhai axa hua tune mujhe bacha liya contact me on my whatsapp [protected]

There is a lady named Radhika who picks up the phone at ICE institute who compares the course with T shirts and tries to sell it which is absolutely wrong marketing. She is so rude, she has no manners of how to talk to a customer.. When i refused to do the course, she abused me.. When i called her back to ask her how dare she talk to me like that..instead of apologizing she argued with me and put down the phone...how can u guys employ such people as a receptionist? she is not even worthy of being a peon.She was forcing me to pay up 20, 000 n call my parents for a meeting with her.. such greedy people.. Anupam Kher's actors prepare course is so genuine and at least in the website they are transparent about the prices..here nothing is given on the website which means there are hidden costs involved. I haven't been a part of the institute per say so I won't comment on its quality but what kind of people are recruiting as front office managers? who will join this institute having such nasty people like this woman...??? People like her spoil the name of the institute itself!!
u all come on my whatsapp [protected]...after we do something

Bhai kaun sa bacha apni institute ki badnaami karta hai ..agar aisa hi hai to ICE -facebook page mein jao aur khud dekh lo -

Aur agar institute hai to paisa to maangega hi.. Bina paise ke kaun tumhe course kara raha hai..
ICE is the best institute ever.I have done direction course from ICE and currently i am working as assistant director in NAAGIN. I have also done a documentary shoot with anurag kashyap sir. ICE has offered me a platform no other institute will ever offer and helped me alot in building contacts with various directors and actors. Faculties of ICE are full of knowledge and talent. Though i am a student of 2014 batch i still got all information about various auditions on a daily basis and preference in every auditions. Live environment which i have got from ICE is the best advantage. I have seen live shoots every week and understood every technique in real.
People who have problems must not be that talented and not passionate too.
i too was the student of ICE of 31st batch direction it is not at all like the way mentioned there i got lot many opportunites currently also i am working with yeh dil sun rha hai tu as a n assistant dircetor also with palco video production.
those who dont know how to act or be in thsi industry they all just sit on internet and abuse such institutes .
from which institute are you ??? who asked you to create a false image of such a reputed organisation.
who says balaji telefilms dont provide opportinies facts n figures dont lie...
I agree with you, afterall ek institute join kar rahe hai.

nd i had a very god experience in ICE, obviously ye humare uppar hi dependn karta hai ki hum kitna sikhte hai, .

ice se training lene ke bad mujme khud mai bhot improvement aya hai, jisse muje audition clear karne mai bhot help mila.

Varna ice join karne se phle ek audition gate par jane ke liye bi kai bar sochna padta tha.

thanks you so much ice for giving me such a good opportunity.I will be thankful to you...
ICE has given me platform to work with serial Yeh Waada Raha as Shanti, also they have helped my batchmates in getting various projects.

Infact, ek project milne ke baad bhi abhi bhi almost regular basis par I am getting auditions information.

Thank you ICE, for such a great experience
