  • Congrats Hrithik and the cast and crew of Jodha Akbar. Deserved every award it won.

    Most awards were perfect except the following

    1. Debut Awards should not have been shared. Aamir actor was more deserving.
    2. Best Music should have gone to Jodha Akbar. Music was much better than Jaane Tu.
    3. Whose that Manjot Singh? If am not wrong he played the younger lead character of Abhay Deol. Naseeruddin Shah for A Wednedsay or Vinay Pathak for Dasvidaniya were more deserving.

    Good to see Ghajini and Rab Ne not winning many awards. They didnt deserve any of it, except Sukhwinder Singh for Haule Haule and Asin for Best Debut.

    Overall the awards were good. After a long time the right film, director, actor and actress have won. Filmfare usually screws up big time.

  • I absolutely agree with Suniel above.
    Also, wasn’t Shahana the supporting actress in Rock on? The Lead was Prachi Desai, so how could Shahana get the Best Actress critics award? You’re right, Filmfare does have a tendancy of screwing up – I am reminded of the time when Nutan was nominated for her role in Main Tulsi Tere Angan Ki as BOTH Lead Actress and Supporting Actress for the same film.
    Thank God they did not screw up the main awards.

  • i m sure ………… thats not fair award… srk deserv best actor award ….i m not fan of srk but srk is better then hretic or amir …….. next year srk win the all awards………. INSHAHALLAH

  • i bet hrithik deservs d award 4 his brilliant performanc in JA.. RNBDJ n ghajini wer k bt nothin compared to JA.. SRKs tim is nt up yet. beta luck 2 him nxt yr…

  • I watched Jodha faraway from INdian i.e. in Sydney but not impressed… wasn’t a natural look like Mughl-e-Azam.. can feel just watching a TV serial type.. However, Hirtik acting was good but not like be given a best actor award.. somehow something somewhere there is always misjudgement…Congratulatesss to all… anywa.

  • Congratulations to Hrithik Roshan and Jodhaa Akbar Team.But Overall FilmFare were not Good. Neeraj Pandey should ve won it for critics best director Costumes to JA
    Best Actress how can sahana she was supporting actress

  • Oh,Please guys please don’t start another fight here. This is to make comments on the filmfare awards and not to fight. Everyone has their own views. We should respect to others’ views even when u don’t agree with them.
    Indicine team, Please don’t allow them to fight.
    All of them deserve the awards except (for me) Anushka should have won the best debut award. She was better than Asin.

  • o my god !!!!!!!!!

    i am happy that shreya , sukvinder , hritik , kangana , priyanka , asin and faran got the awards .
    they deserve it !!!!!!!!!!!

    i am sure that there will be a time when even i will be a part of the industry , win several awards and will be known as the queen of bollywood

    till then good bye

  • Shahrukh used to receive some awards in the past for his roles in some movies which weren’t so great, but he was the best during those years.. now we come to his best performance ever in Rabne.. as Surinder Sahani and he didn’t win!!!

    Hrithik deserves the award, but Shahrukh too.. he deserved appreciation for this role and I don’t think that Shahrukh would ever be able to do any better role than this one in future.

    Shahana in Rock On deserved the award too.. her acting was so natural, so good.. and it’s not the matter of how long she was on the screen playing the role.. it’s the matter of “performance” even if it was only one minute in any movie.

    Arjun Rampal too, deserved his award.. but my question is the following:

    Why no one honoured Anoushka Sharma yet?!!!! She’s so good as a debutant, played the main leading role in Rabne.. her role was more serious and difficult than the one Asin played in Ghajini, she’s loveable, cute, got a beautiful face and a strong charisma, so why not?! that’s my question if anyone could answer please

  • i m compeltly with u fathiya srk is the best of the best act in rbdj…… but i realy dont now y he not got award….. i think the jouriy of filmfair is not fair this year……. srk really deserv the best actore award ……..

  • Hip Hip Hurrey:-):-):-):-) Yes HRITHIK ROSHAN has done it.Hey he truly deserves it.This is his 4th Filmfare Best Actor Trophy in just 2000-2008 career in which 2005 and 2007 no films releasing.HopeNext FilmFare he gets for KITES
    dying to see KITES

  • Khann.. I have seen your comments and some of your questions in Ask us. Its so obvious that your a crazy SRK fan. Be honest, please…. like Fathiya. Because even tho I disagree with her most often.. I love her comments. She is atleast honest about what she feels!!!!

    Now Fathiya… Shahrukh Khan was part-great part-filty in RNBDJ. He was very very good as Surinder but filty, ugly, disastrous, yucky, over the top as Raj… He deserves nothing more than Best supporting actor if he could just be awarded for Surinder’s part

    Are you serious about the film being his greatest performance ever? Have you seen CDI or Swades?

    The only thing i dont like about Filmfare is.. that they are not consistent. in 2004 SRK won for Swades… it was a boxoffice disaster. How can they award it the Best actor award if it indeed is the popular category? He should have got the Critics award not the popular.

    Hrithiik won Best actor for D2 in 2007.. suddenly they decided to go based on popularity.. when Krrish was by far his better performance that year. I still dont why and how D2 was better than Krrish.

    The only time they got it right was last year (SRK) and in 2003 when Hrithik won best actor critics and popular.

    This year am really very happy. Hrithik’s performance in JA was not just the best performance of the year but also the most popular. Keep going Hrithik… UR THE BEST!

    It also feels special to know, almost everytime both Hrithik and Filmfare fav SRK have been nominated for best actor. Hrithik has beaten SRK.

    1. 2001 – KNPH beat Mohobbatein
    2. 2004 – KMG smashed everything including Kal Ho Na Ho
    3. 2007 – D2 beat KANK and Don (how was SRK even nominated for these films is beyond me tho)
    4. 2009 – JA won beating Rab ne and Ghajini

    What more can you ask for being a Hrithik fan !! God’s great!

    P.S : It would be a huge surprise if Hrithik doesnt win in 2009 too. Kites will be a epic performance if its a hit then he will win for sure. Aamir in 3 Idiots is more like a supporting role (like RDB) with 2 other very talented actors. SRK might not have a release this year.

    Would love to read RC Patel’s, ADB’s and Fathiya’s comments on this. Others are welcome tooooooo!

  • {i was hurry to go out when i was posting my last comment. but i think to complete it now. }
    my congrats to u HRITHIK , ASHUTOSH GOWARIKER , and the JODHA AKBAR TEAM.
    And i can’t wait to see KITES !!!!

  • Mr Suniel, you are a man after my own heart, and all your words are wonderfully accurate. However, I am not a fan of any particular actor or actress. I am a fan of quality and effort which is why SRK does not fall on my list of commendable actors, because he is so sure of his popularity that he makes no efforts whatsoever to improve his performances. I liked him in Swades but that was due to Ashutosh’s determination to curtail SRK’s normal exuberance. Also, his roles in Veer Zara and Chakhde India were such that he just could not behave in his usual way. Otherwise, his performances have been borderline irritating, especially Devdas, Don, KANK, Om Shanti Om, and Rab Ne Banadi Jodi. You are right – If there were awards for half performances then he could be given one for his role as Surinder, but his persona as Raj was just “awful”!
    Nevertheless, he will always be nominated for all his roles because that is just the way it is with Bollywood royalty of which SRK is a leading member.

    Being a fan of quality and effort, the young and dashing Hrithik has made admirable progress with stellar performances from Kaho Na Pyar Hai right upto Jodha Akbar. If he had not announced his marriage so quickly after Kaho Na Pyar Hai, his romantic films like Yaadein and Mujhse Dosti Karoge would have done well. I was disappointed that his role in Laakshya was just overlooked. He did pretty well in this film. However, I did not enjoy his performance in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon and Aap Mujhe Ache Lagne Lage. But all in all, an admirable record so far.

    I also feel actors such as Shahid Kapoor and Rajeev Khandelwal have great potential, but it will be tough for them to get past the Bollywood royalty. Considering all the other categories of the Filmfare Awards, it is nothing short of a miracle that the top three awards went to Jodha Akbar. And for that, we must all stand up proudly and say “Surely, God tussi great ho!”

    I have tried but I have failed to understand my dear friend Fathiya’s fixation on SRK. She is completely unable to see his flaws which are so glaringly obvious to us all. Anyway, I wish her all the best and SRK should be thankful for such blind loyalty from his fans. He should also be grateful for the loyalty of Karan Johar without whom his future would look quite bleak at the moment.

    Lastly, I do not think we can look forward to yet another Hrithik sweep next year. I feel so because Kites is in English [correct me if I am wrong] and may receive treatment like the Last Lear in our awards ceremony. I do not know if it is good or bad that Hrithik does such few films but I guess quality is more desirable than quantity.

    Allow me to sign off now…

  • KITES will be released in Hindi in INDIA and in Spanish and English Worldwide.So With Anurag Basu and Rakesh Roshan We can Hope and Expect the Very Best from Hrithik.I hope it ll be like D:2 infused with Great Chemistry with Barbara.KITES vs MNIKvs3idiots

  • i think aamir khans 3 idiots will score over the other two films. or it could even be a tie between MNIK and 3 idiots. however, all 3 films should do well.

    are all three films releasing at the same time ? i hope they are.

  • First off, what happened to Best Comedian and Best Villan awards??

    Secondly, I think the popular awards are right on the money!!
    Most people don’t realize but the popular awards is like 50% popularity/audience/fans and 50% judge’s vote.
    This is why films like Ghajini and RNBDJ didn’t win anything. Obviously, fans and the audiences are going to remember movies/performances from december better than ones from earlier on in the year. Fans are just biased in this way.

    Best Film – Jodhaa Akbar deserved it, right on the money

    Best Director – The reason JA was so well made was because of the captain of the ship, Mr. Gowariker

    Best Actor – the nominations were pretty good. Aamir was really good in Ghajini, SRK was greeat as surinder and decent as Raj so overall he was good. If SRK was as good as raj as he was surinder, it would have been close. Overall, I think this award was a two man race with Hrithik and Aamir, with Aamir winning more popular and Hrithik winning more judge’s vote. However this award is not even close, Hrithik deserved it, hands down!! I would put Naseer sir second after him! I would probably throw in a nomation for Amitabh Bachchan for Sarkar Raj!

    Best Actress – Priyanka was great just beat out Ash for her first best actress award.

    Best Supporting Actor: Arjun Rampal delivered his career best performance in Rock-on, and was completely natural. He deserved it completely. Abhishek was excellent in SR, Sonu Sood probably gave his career best in JA, Vinay Pathak was excellent in RNBDJ as well. Tusshar kappor was good, but i think he should have been nominated and possibly won it for best actor in comic role instead. Pratik Babbar was good in his cameo, it was not necessarily a supporting role! I would probably add Anil Kapoor here for Yuvraaj instead of Prateik Babbar just because Prateik’s role was more of a cameo not a supporting role but either way.. im fine!

    Best Supporting Actress: All nominations were good here, I would probably add Ash for Sarkar Raj. However, Kangana deserved it for her role in Fashion!!

    The critics awards are arguable but still well deserving!! Most people just think Nasser sir deserved, but its aruguable but just watch OLLO, and it is a toss-up. Shahana was excellet in Rock-on, probably should have deserved Supporting Actress but as I mentioned Kangana prob won the popular vote because more people know her rather than Shahana who only had 2 movies under her belt prior to Rock-on.

    Best Debut Male: Imraan and Farhan both got it.. check and I don’t know why it says only Farhan won it. They were def the most deserving, although performance wise, I would say Rajeev from AAmir was probably more deserving. However, again this is 50% popularity and 50% jury, so that is why Imraan and Farhaan got it, who both did a fabulous job!

    Best Debut Female: Asin I would say deserved it. Some are saying Anuksha was more deserving. I think it was close but Asin got it. Asin had the same role in the tamil ghajini and in the hindi Ghajini, so it was probably a little repetitive for her. However, that doesn’t matter, she was great and she deserved the award thats the bottom line!!!

    Now… people like Fathiya and Khan. Let me first say… u two dont know wtf you are talking about.

    Khan I think you are just a crazy SRK fan who can’t see anything besides him, or you are a dumb***. You tell me!! SRK got a nominee and that was fair enough. You saying filmfare is not fair, i Think its been pretty fair this year,, atleast as far as the awards I discussed above goes. Hrithik was excellent in JA, from top to bottom, his mannerisms, his expressions, his diction, his overall performance in general. SRK was great as Suri but not quite as good as Raj, he was decent at best as raj… making his overall performance still good but definitely not award worthy. Infact, I would say Aamir was ahead of SRK in best actor category, followed by Naseersir (again he is third because I am taking into consideration that these awards are 50% audience 50% jury)..and so forth!!

    Fathiya: you made some good points, I think Shahana did indeed deserve the award. As far as your comments about Srk, i don’t know what in the world you are talking about!! SRK was great in ChakDeINdia, this is probabably by far in his top 5 performance wise, so is his role in Mohabbatein! So you saying RNBDJ was his best performance means you haven’t seen any of his other movies. YOu ought to watch them. SRK definitely din’t deserve the best actor award, he deserved acclaim, which he did get, as he got nominated. but that is as far as it goes.

    Comments? Anyone?

  • Its showing both Farhan and Imran now. But am sure i read the name of both Farhan and Imran yesterday too while constantly checking for updates. Was so very nervous… I really was nervous because i heard on New channels that SRK had just arrived with a recently operated shoulder and Hrithik wasnt present. I was so very sure SRK would win it….

    It was announced here first and I still couldnt believe it although i did breathe a sigh of relief. But still was waiting for some news channel to confirm it. 15 mins later it was shown on Times Now (Filmfare is a part of Times group)… And finally my joy knew no bounds!!!! Hrithik and JA won !!!

    Anonymous : I agree with whatever your have said. There was no best actor in a comic role because.. its always been a weird category. Where do you nominate Akshay or SIK? In best actor or Best actor Comic role? Tusshar in Best supporting actor or Best comic actor? Same with Best Villian.. Last year there was quite a lot of debate as to whether Hrithik should have been nominated for Best Villian instead of Best Actor (D2) because John for D1 got the Best Villian……

    This year, they did the right thing. Ditched both Villian and Comic.. and merged it with Best Supporting Actor n Actress.

    Manjot and Shahana were both supporting roles. How can they give best actor critics to a supporting role? It should have been Naseer, he deserved something.

  • this is the only year iffa got everything right, i am glad that they didnt give any award to that fag srk, fathiya and khan you guys are wrong srk performance was just crap and thats it, i am glad hrithic got the award, if he didnt then aamir khan would of gotten the award so just supporting that fag srk!!!

  • congatulations to hritik ,priyanka ,asin ,arjun ,kangana ,farhan.all they really deserve it.
    but some awards are really unfair like best music …….shankar ehsaan loy had done terrific job with ROCK ON music fist time in india such rock album was produced.rehman in JAANE TU… was very good but shankar ehsaan loy were OUTSTANDIG

  • Its a good judgment by film fare. Most of the awards are given to deserving candidate…specially the bigi …like best film,best Actor,Actress,Director…
    Hrithik deserves the Award dot 4get to do the justice with with a historic character is not child’s play….B4 it SRK and Aamir both try to do Historic character (Aamir in Mangal Panday) SRK in(ASHOKA) non of them able to do justice with there character , Aamir done good job bt not as good as a historic movie required and SRK completly failed to do ASHOKA character.
    BT Hrithik play The character of AKABR superbly he done complet justice with the character….If u think as a viewer not as a fan of SRK,Amir,HRITHIK or any other Actor then i m sure ur choice for best Actor is 101% Hrithik ….coz SRK done execelent job as suranider sahini bt not very good as raj means overall average.Aamir kahan done very well job in gajini and good competitor for best Actor bt he done nothing new if u watch the Tamil version of gajhini then u realize SURYA also done the same job in excellent manner and Aamir copy him in most of the place in movie.

    and hrithik done an original act…so he deserve more tn other…..

  • Hrithik Roshan won best actor award again wow really exicited anyway he deserve it coz his acting excelent and unbeatable.all the best charming dashing superstar of Bollywood.

  • i think Aishwarya Rai Bachan should win for best actress for her superb performance hmm Priyanka not bad too.

  • best choice for debut is Anuska Sharma not tat asin coz her acting is worst and exppression missing and i feel bad choice for last year.not looking good with her horse face ask her to pack up.Genelia is thousand times better.

  • i know that all award winners deserve their awards . but srk should have got for best actor for RNBDJ and what about poor anushka . she has acted better than asin in RNBDJ and she deserves the award for best debutant – female .

    i have a complain only on these 2 awards . rest all are fine .

    but please do answer me these 2 questions please!
