    terrible choices. dont agree with even manoj in s26. he was not as good as akshay and anupam. the scene where he had to laugh in the end , he did a pretty poor job

    Saurabh Shukla- Jolly LLB
    The politician guy- KPC

    • Anjanpur685Miles 9 years ago

      Agree with many choices expecially Emraan and Saurabh from JollyLLB.

      I would also add Aamir to the list. (he does ham in few scenes but carries the film and drama so well)

  5. Tulmul 9 years ago

    I am not fit to jot down my fav list here as my viewing sample size is very small. Still what I have seen and finding what I saw was ‘Brilliant Jugalbandi’ of last few years, Danush and Zeeshan of Ranjhanaa stands like Lighthouse. Even Swar bhaskara was terrific.

    Rest was subjected to Ham Ham And Ham 😀

  6. saurabh 9 years ago

    @mate though hvnt thought much abt ur list except for kbira song. I dnt think arjit singh kabira is better version than tochi nd rekha’s version. I personally love kbira of tochi nd rekha version.. Nd same is more popular too..

  7. Anjanpur685Miles 9 years ago

    Wait a min,

    where is Kangana?? Her performance in Krrish3 is the best of the year – along with Deepika’s CE and YJHD.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 9 years ago

      In fact Kangana was the most brilliant thing in the whole Krrish3 ( was a good movie ).

      Full marks to her performance and the direction of Rakesh Roshan.
