0005-english_vinglish_wallpapers_hd_4_

A Delightfully Sweet Movie with One of the Strongest Female Protagonist I’ve Seen on Screen.

‘English Vinglish’ is One of those Few Bollywood Movies that have Touched Me Deeply and Connected with Me Like NO Movie Before.

NOMINATIONS:-

Agneepath

Kahaani

Barfi!

Ishaqzaade

BEST DIRECTOR – Sujoy Ghosh[Kahaani]

bollywood_sujoy-ghosh

Best Director of the Year 2012 goes undoubtedly to Sujoy Ghosh for Directing what was one of the Most Taut and Crisp Thriller I have Seen Onscreen with a Fantastic Screenplay/Story to add to it.

Ably supported by the Likes of Vidya, Parambrata, Nawaaz and Others, KAHAANI was an Engaging Watch.

Especially, Liked the Way he used those Officials from the Government Ministries and Stuff – A Thing we often get to see in Many American Movies.

NOMINATIONS:-

Kauri Shinde[English vinglish]

Shoojit Sircar[Vicky Donor]

Dibakar Banerjee[Shanghai]

Karan Johar[Student of the Year]

BEST ACTOR – Irrfan[Paan Singh Tomar]

images

A Performance that was Amazing, Superb and Powerfull – All Rolled into One!

Just Watch out for the ‘Pride’ in Paan Singh’s eyes when he sees his son in an Army Uniform… That itself is enough for me to blindly awards this year’s Best Actor to Irrfan.

Nominations:-

Ranbir Kapoor[Barfi!]

Abhay Deol[Shanghai]

Aamir Khan[Talaash]

Paresh Rawal[OMG! – Oh My God!]

Best Actress – Sridevi[English Vinglish]

download

Sridevi’s transformation of ‘Shashi’ from the Middle-Class Pune Housewife to the English-Vinglish Speaking-Veaking “ENTREPRENEUR” of Manhattan *hands down* wins the Best Actress of 2012.

Nominations:-

Vidya Balan[Kahaani]

Richa Chaddha[‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ Series]

Parineeti Chopra[Ishaqzaade]

Priyanka Chopra[Barfi!]

Best Actor in Supporting Role – Rishi Kapoor[Agneepath]

download (1)

The Evilness and the Sheer Intensity with which Chintu-ji performed ‘Rauf Lala’ is very hard to find in Bollywood Cinema.

Watch out for the Scene in which he Kidnaps, Vijay Chuahan’s Sister… EPIC! POWERFUL! INTENSE!

Nominations:-

Parambrata Chatterjee[Kahaani]

Annu Kapoor[Vicky Donor]

Jaideep Ahlawat[Gangs Of Wasseypur(Part-1)]

Nawazuddin Siddiqui[Talaash]

Best Actress in a Supporting Role – Kareena Kapoor[Talaash]

download (2)

One of the Most Surprising Performances of the Year, that managed to get Great Critical Appreciation from all quarters, Kareena Surprised one and all with the portrayal of the Mysterious ‘Rosie’.

Apart from looking extremely beautiful onscreen, Kareena Kapoor[& Aamir Khan] was One of the Best Things to Happen to ‘Talaash’.

Nominations:-

Dolly Alhuwalia[Vicky Donor]

Diana Penty[Cocktail]

Archana Puran Singh[Bol Bachchan]

Natasha Rastogi[Ishaqzaade]

Best Music – Pritam[Barfi!]

download (3)

My Choice for the best music and also the superb background score for 2012 will undoubtedly be PRITAM-Da for Barfi!

Fell in Love with tracks like ‘Kya Karoon’ and ‘Baawre’ on 1st hearing.

‘Aashiyan’, a Magical Number, took time to grow… ‘Ala Barfi!’ Was lot of Fun[All Credit to Mohit Chuahan]… “Phir le aya Dil” remains the best Song of Barfi!… Fall in Love with Illena’s Eyes every time I Watch it.

Nominations:-

Pritam[Cocktail]

Vishal-Shekhar[Student of the Year]

Amit Trivedi[Ishaqzaade]

Sneha Khanwalkar[‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ Series]

Best Story+Screenplay – Vicky Donor

download (4)

In these times of South Remakes and Hollywood Scene Stealing, Vicky Donor needs to be Highly Appreciated for Bringing a Unique and a Novel Subject on screen and making it work in the mainstream sector, making it entertaining and being the ‘Perfect’ Movie with a Message.

Except for the ‘Dragging’ End Portions, Full Marks to Vicky Donor for the Quirly Screenplay.. From Ayushmann Romancing the Bank Employere in Yami to the Scenes os ‘Sperm Donation’ with Annu Kapoor to the Punju-Bong Wedding.

Kudos to Juhi Chaturvedi, Shoojit Sircar, John Abraham and EROS.

Nominations:-

OMG! – Oh My God!

Shanghai

Kahaani

Paan Singh Tomar

Best Song – Paani Da Rang[Vicky Donor]

STAR OF THE YEAR – Akshay Kumar

download (5)

Inspite of an “Average” Khiladi-786 and a “Disowened” Joker, Akshay Kumar remains the STAR OF THE YEAR-2012 for me because of a SOLO Blockbuster in ‘Rowdy Rathore’, a Huge Superhit in Housefull-2[which without him would have gone the ‘KSKHH/Double Dhamaal’ Way] and the Movie which turned the tide in favour of him[Rather than Salman Khan who was set to win it in a 3rd year in a row] is OMG!-Oh My God!, a Script/Story hardly any Superstar would have backed but then it reaching an ‘Unbelievable’ 83crores was truly amazing to see[& Of course, the Universal Appreciation].

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

MY TOP-5 MOST AWAITED OF 2012

1] Talaash – 2.5/5 – Success

2] Heroine – 2/5 – Failure

3]Ek Tha Tiger – 2.5/5 – Success

    BEST ACTOR – IRFAN KHAN – I DO NOT AGREE
    RANBIR KAPOOR IN BARFI WAS MILES AHEAD OF ANY OTHER ACTOR OF 2012…
    THE WRITER IS VERY BIASED TOWARDS SOME ACTORS AND HAS SELECTED ONLY THOSE ACTORS/ACTRESS WHOM HE LIKES ..
    DITTO FOR THE BEST ACTRESS AWARD WHICH MUST BE AWARDED TO ONE AND ONLY PRIYANKA CHOPRA FOR BARFI…… DUDE GET UP AND NOTICE HER PERFORMANCE IN THAT MOVIE IF YOU ARE TRULY A MOVIE BUFF AND HAS THE ABILITY TO JUDGE ACTOR/MOVIE RIGHT OR WRONG

    I have Limited Myself to an OSCAR-Like 5Nominations and have Deleted the Stupid ‘Best Comedian/Villian’ Categories.

    Shanghai is a Movie that I Really Wanted to Nominate for Best Film.

    Hrithik[AP] and Sharman[FKS], Akshay[RR] and Ayushmann[VD] but a Rewatch of OMG! and Talaash proved the Fact that Aamir[Brooding like a Silent Volcano about to Erupt] and Rawal[Natural and Free Flowing as the Athiest Gujju] were Better in their Roles.

  10. SYED IMRAN 7 years ago

    ACTUALLY IT MUST BE TITLED AS ‘DISHONEST AND BIASED BOLLYWOOD AWARDS’

    • sputnik 7 years ago

      Please don’t type in all CAPS.

      @Serenzy,

      You already have your first ‘dishonest’ and ‘biased’ allegation. You have become Filmfare/Screen and all those Bollywood Awards. Congrats 😉

    Syed Imran,

    Bhaijaan, Kahin aap Danish ya Ritz toh Nahi ho???
    🙂

    It’s Okay that you have Different Choices wrt Me.

    But, Matlab to tab Banega jab Aap apne Choices Batayenge.

  12. SYED IMRAN 7 years ago

    Dude, I am neither Ritz nor Danish…
    Bhaijaan I am Imran…
    Actually wat I mean to express is whoever your fav actor or actress is, bt appreciate those who have done a good work in their movies. It may be a director, actor, actress or any other character actor. Keep aside the fact that barfi is a cut and paste work of anurag basu from other hollywood craps. Just look at Ranbir’s performance. Don’t you think it is a notch higher than any of the best actor nominees. Agreed Irfan Khan gave a splendid performance in PST. But at the end of the day it is Ranbir Kapoor’s performance which deserves a special mention. Even Sridevi was marvellous in EV. Then wat abt PC in Barfi.. She look as if she is really a retarted girl. Not once will you feel that it is PC enacting that character. I am not being biased or nominating only those who are my favs. To your knowledge my fav is SRK and then comes Ranbir Kapoor. But SRK’S JTHJ was the worst movie I had seen and even more worse thatn ra.one. This is just my opinion and I want to have the best awarded to the best…..Plz take it in a sport way…

    Imran Bhaijaan,

    “Keep aside the
    fact that barfi is a cut and paste work of anurag basu
    from other hollywood craps”

    I was Among the 1st Ones that Inspite of Barfi! being Copied, Loved it to the Core.

    Highly Appreciated Ranbir and PC in their Roles too and that’s why I have Nominated them in My Top-5.

    Btw, Even I Believe RA.One was a wayy Better Movie than JTHJ.

    Took it in a Sporting Way Dude, No Problemo!
    😀

    Thank You Ank..
    You Missed out on ‘Best Supporting Actress’ though.

    Have been getting a Lot of Love today from My Fellow Akshay Fans.. 🙂
    After all, He is the STAR OF THE YEAR!

    • ank_16n 7 years ago

      i didn’t missed i did’nt think there were enough nominations to choose Winner..!!

      “”Have been getting a Lot of Love today from My Fellow Akshay Fans.. 🙂
      After all, He is the STAR OF THE YEAR!””

      not in my case but may be for others true..!!
      If u wud have written Salman khan as star of the year my comment wud have been same.. 🙂

      i don’t believe in degrading Salman as some of salman fan try to degrade Akshay. as i know 60-70% of salman fans Today are Rejected fans of Shahrukh from the past…..some have confessed themself..!!.

  17. SYED IMRAN 7 years ago

    hmmm…. congrats ank for ur fav actor being the star of the year… and i think he truly deservs it. 3 hits, 1 average and one 1 flop, i think datz quite good.. if akshay starts choosing his scripts wisely and does at a max 3 films in a year, then all his films will b waited impatiently and will get a record breaking collections on day one… his case is quite similar to the one that of salman a few years back…. we cudn’t predict the exact bo collections of salman starrers on its release.. the same case is now with akshay… many ppl nw wants to c akshay doing a martial art kind of action movie including me.. if he does that then sky will be the limit for the film’s bo collections.

    • ank_16n 7 years ago

      SYED IMRAN —–I want him to do 4 movies(every year) at least for another 3 years….even if his 1-2 films become flop i don’t care….he has done that it for last 10 years and don’t care about Hits and Flops..!!

      Maybe after that he can reduce it to 2 movies each year….

      Don’t know about .a martial art kind of action movie but boss is coming which will probably see him in some Raw action man-to man combat ….wait for it Akshay had said in his interview that boss will be a treat..!!
