This folks, is a quick summary for those who did not have time to watch the movies and who would like either to go by my views or act just in the opposite manner!
Just one movie, CHALO DELHI, got a 4.5 star rating. It was simple, heartwarming and a good clean comedy with outstanding acting. I would vote for it as the BEST PICTURE for 2011. The runners-up are the ones which got 4 stars: THE DIRTY PICTURE, NO ONE KILLED JESSICA and DELHI BELLY. Each of this is of a different genre and done beautifully. In the also-ran category (the ones which I gave 3 or 3.5 rating) were ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA, MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN, DUM MAARO DUM, 7 KHOON MAAF, DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JEE, DHOBI GHAT, NOT A LOVE STORY, DOUBLE DHAMAAL, BBHUDAH HOGA TERA BAAP and SHAGIRD. The rest of the movies are seriously worthy of being missed!
My choice for the best actor would be Ranbir Kapoor for his portrayal of the errant character in ROCKSTAR, with Vinay Pathak in CHALO DELHI being a runner-up. From the heroines, Vidya Balan, easily takes on the numero uno position for her role in THE DIRTY PICTURE; my choice for runner-up would be Priyanka Chopra for her role(s) in 7 KHOON MAAF.
Abinay Deo would easily walk away with the Best Director Trophy for his work in DELHI BELLY; Ram Gopal Verma would be a runner-up for his treatment of the shocking NOT A LOVE STORY. AR Rahman deserves the award for Best Music for his compositions in ROCKSTAR, Mohit Chauhan has been the best male singer for his rendering of SADDA HAQ in ROCKSTAR and Irshad Kamil gets the best lyricist place for his lyrics in KUN FAYA KUN, also from ROCKSTAR. Shreya Ghoshal’s rendering in TERI MERI from BODYGUARD makes her deserving of the best female playback award.
The award for the most disappointing movie (in relation to expectations) easily goes to MAUSAM; Ranveer Singh and John Abraham share the credits for appearing in the skimpiest of costumes (male) in LADIES vs RICKY BAHL and DESI BOYZ respectively; Anushka Sharma wins that award for the female category for her appearance in a bikini in LADIES vs RICKY BAHL!
The award for the most hyped-up (yet, flimsy on delivery) movie goes to RA ONE; it is a difficult choice as to which of these sequels is the biggest let-down of the original: MURDER 2, BHEJA FRY 2 or DON 2. It is best that they share that award.
As far as 2012 is concerned, a few producers, who had seen this summary of mine, before I posted it on the blog, had asked me that since I had given such a favorable review of THE DIRTY PICTURE (based loosely on the life of Silk Smitha), would I give a good review, if they made a movie called THE DIRTIER PICTURE! When I asked as to whose story it would be, they said: You name it. We will give it…It can be RAYON REVATHI, NYLON NALINI, POLYESTER PADMINI, COTTON KAMINI…they were all extras!
I excused myself and ran from there….
