  • Top five best films of 2016 acc to me .
    1. Dangal : it was really emotional father and daughter story, which is without a doubt inspiration for many .
    I found it really great in terms of screenplay, direction and lead actors.
    2. Neerja : it was a good experience for me to watch such a nice movie which had realism. Loved it .
    3. Kapoor and Sons : beautiful, sad yet inspiring. I really enjoyed this film.
    4. Pink : it was great film.
    5. Dear Zindagi : refreshing and it was really cool film although it was a bit preachy.

    Most overrated film of 2016 was sultan for me because it was meant to be made for box office collections . It was wrestling also, boxing also, comedy also.
    Didn’t like this crap one bit.

    Best trailer of 2016 was Fan trailer
    Most disappointing movie of 2016 was Fan for me as it wasn’t even as good as half of its trailer ….

    It really shocked me when I saw Aamir khan had won filmfare best actor award for Dangal.
    He didn’t deserve like SRK did for Fan.

    If I loved sth from Fan then it was SRK’s outstanding performance . He was brilliant in the film . He should have won best actor award for Fan not Aamir khan …

  • Most Impressive & Promising in 2016

    Sakun Batra……harsh Rane……Armaan Malik…….Manoj muntashir …..Ali Abbas Zafar…..amaal Malik…..Arko……amit sadh…..Jonitha Gandhi….Nitesh Tiwari…..

  • Most Impressive & Promising in 2016 [ part 2 ]

    Fawad khan….amit Mishra…..neethi Mohan……mawara hocane….anant vidhaat……

  • Forever whining stammerer fans like Javed are still whining about how SRK’s hamming act did not win fakefare awards. Cut some slack losers. This con artist has already bought enough awards for his constant hamming for over 2 decades now. AK is miles ahead of this stammer in both script sense as well as dialogue delivery and mannerisms. As for 2016, Sushant Singh Rajput is easily the best of the year for his near flawless MS Dhoni act.

  • Lol where are Mr Akshay Kumar and Mr Ajay Devgn??????????????Always remember dudes its Khans 1st preference any aspect of cinema before those two overhyped superstars especially Akshay Crack Toile am not going to be hard on Ajay because I actually have no issue with him and he does not make noise like Gobarians.

  • I think the best actor of 2016 award should go to SRK for his brilliant acting in the film, agree that the movie couldn’t been able to make at boxoffice but performance wise SRK should be the best actor of 2016

  • I think the best actor of 2016 award should go to SRK for his brilliant acting in the film FAN, agree that the movie couldn’t been able to make at box office but performance wise SRK should be the best actor of 2016. Sultan and Dangal actors just made good at box office but the acting was not an award winning, if a film collects 300+ crore doesn’t mean that the actor’s performance was brilliant, many other factors come in like Eid and Christmas/new year extended holidays

  • “Sultan was meant to be made for box office collections.”

    @javeda: abey ghonchu, do you meant your gangu teli doesn’t make movies for money!!! If that is true then WTH he releases his movies in theatres? Why doesn’t he release his movies on TV & Internet directly??

  • @javeda

    abey ghonchu, do you want us to believe that your gangu teli doesn’t care for money? If that is the case then WTH he/she does MUJRA in wedding parties for money???

  • LOL. Even with three films joker boy failed to become highest grossing actor of the year. Aamir with just one film thrashed his 3 overhyped movies by distance.

  • Only one film, released during demonitization, no franchise, no big director, no big banner, no big actress still one movie alone earned highest of the year, of all time and also more than the combined of the three films of second highest grossing actor. Baap akhir baap hota hai.

  • Worst movie: 1920 London
    Worst popular movie: Housefull 3
    Most disappointing movie: Mohenjodaro
    Most overrated movie: Rustom

  • wait for christmas 2018 srk will show their aukaat to tingu and lallu cmon incidine publish my comment

  • Everything is good except most popular song. YouTube views and popularity are different. YouTube views depend on starcast, genre, banner, production values.
    For example a song picturised on Kat will any time get more views than an equally good song picturised on any other actress.
    An average urban youth song will easily get more views than very good mass song.
    According to popularity of song I think Sanam Re, Soch Na Sake and even Kar Gayi Chul was more popular than Kala Chashma.

  • blockbuster actor Aamir khan
    Flop actor sharukh khan
    Best movie dangal
    Best song naina
    Best stylish actor hrithik roshan

  • @Aamir and hrithik roshan: true man,
    Naina song from Dangal is a fantastic song.
    It was not promoted, thats why it did not become popular….
    I think it was the best emotional song of 2016
