3 Idiots Sweep Up At The FilmFare Awards, I Hope!

The Filmfare Awards are the most prestigious awards of the Indian film industry and they can be seen as the Indian version of the Oscars. We all eagerly wait for the 55th Filmfare Awards 2009, which will be held in Mumbai on 27th February, as the films, performances and music in 2009 has been awesome, so the competition is very tough. Of course, we must wait for the actual Award Ceremony to announce the Winners yet I have formed my own predictions for the main set of awards. Let me know if you agree with my predictions or not.

Here are the 55th Filmfare Awards 2009 Nominations and My Predictions:

BEST FILM

  • 3 Idiots – This film certainly relates to everyone, it shows how parents should respect their kid’s choice of study, teachers should support students in their education, friends should help each other through thick and thin and how love should be balanced well with education.  It is the best film that I have seen for a quite a while.
  • Dev D
  • Love Aaj Kal
  • Paa
  • Kaminey

BEST ACTOR

  • Aamir Khan (3 Idiots)
  • Shahid Kapoor ( Kaminey)
  • Saif Ali Khan ( Love Aaj Kal)
  • Ranbir Kapoor (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year)
  • Amitabh Bachchan (Paa)He is a God when it comes to acting, he has shown that he can do any given role even at his age whether it is Nishabad, Sarkar or Paa.
  • Ranbir Kapoor (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani)

BEST ACTRESS

  • Priyanka Chopra (Kaminey)
  • Katrina Kaif (New York)
  • Deepika Padukone ( Love Aaj Kal)
  • Priyanka Chopra (What’s Your Rashee?)
  • Vidya Balan (Paa)
  • Kareena Kapoor (3 Idiots) – She keeps on giving strong performances one after another.

BEST DIRECTOR

  • Anurag Kashyup
  • RajKumar Hirani (3 Idiots)Best films have the best directors, and this is no exception.
  • R. Balki
  • Imtiaz Ali (Love Aaj Kal)
  • Vishal Bhardwaj (Kaminey)

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (MALE)

  • Sharman Joshi (3 Idiots)
  • R Madhavan (3 Idiots)One of his best performances since Rang De Bastani, it is difficult, if not impossible, to stand out in a film starring Aamir Khan but R Madhavan does this very well every time.
  • Rishi Kapoor (Love Aaj Kal)
  • Rishi Kapoor (Luck by Chance)
  • Abhimanyu Singh (Gulaal)

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (FEMALE)

  • Arundhati Nag (Paa)
  • Gauhar Khan (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year)Acted well to go with her looks
  • Divya Dutta (Delhi 6)
  • Neha Dhupia (Raat Gayi Baat Gayi)
  • Shahana Goswami (Firaaq)

BEST ACTOR IN NEGATIVE ROLE

  • Boman Irani (3 Idiots)He climbed into the skin of the character so well that he actually reminds you of your worst teacher; he was brilliant throughout the film.
  • Manish Chaudhari (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year)
  • Mahesh Manjrekar (Wanted)
  • Kay Kay Menon (Gulaal)

BEST ACTOR IN A COMIC ROLE

  • Vinay Pathak ( Raat Gayi Baat Gayi)
  • Paresh Rawal (De Dana Dan) It is hard to believe that he was a villain in his earlier films but this is what shows a versatile actor The actor is truly a legend in comedy roles.
  • Omi Vaidya (3 Idiots)
  • Sanjay Mishra (All the Best)

BEST MUSIC

  • Pritam (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani) – This was a tough choice as I liked the songs of all the five nominations but it is Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani that plays on my iPod the most!
  • Vishal Bhardwaj (Kaminey)
  • Pritam (Loe Aaj Kal)
  • A.R Rahman (Delhi 6)
  • Pritam (Tum Mile)

BEST PLAYBACK SINGER (MALE)

  • Atif Aslam (Tu Jaane Na, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani)
  • Javed Ali, Kailesh Kher (Arziyan, Delhi 6)
  • Mohit Chauhan (Masakali, Delhi 6)
  • Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (Aaj Din Chadheya, Love Aaj Kal)Without any doubt, he must be awarded for giving his breathtaking voice to this beautiful song. He sang the song with immense grace. My favourite part of the song is, ‘Maanga jo mera hai, Jaata kya tera hai, Maine kaun si tujhse jannat maang li, Kaisa khuda hai tu, Bas naam ka hai tu, Rabba jo teri itni si bhi na chali…’
  • Sonu Niigaan, Salim Merchant (Shukran Allah, Kurbaan)

  • Kavita Seth (Iktaara, Wake up Sid)
  • Rekha Bhardwaj (Genda Phool, Delhi 6)
  • Shreya Ghoshal (Zoobie Doobie, 3 Idiots)She is truly sensational as she can sing Dola Re Dola Re (Devdas), Teri Ore (Singh in King) and Zoobie Doobie (3 Idiots) and each time she sings then she turns good lyrics into gold!

BEST BACKGROUND SCORE

  • Amit Trivedi (Dev D)
  • Salim Sulaiman (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year)
  • Shantanu Moitra, Atul Raninga and Sanjay Wandreker (3 Idiots)The music was the soul of the film whether it was the lyrics, singing or just instrumental; real good sound throughout the film.
  • Vishal Bhardwaj (Kaminey)

THE MOST PROMISING NEWCOMER (MALE)

  • Chandan Roy Sanyal (Kaminey)
  • Amole Gupte (Kaminey)
  • Navin Kaushik (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year)
  • Omi Vaidya (3 Idiots) It is difficult to make a mark in a film like 3 idiots with a multi-star cast, powerful script and superior actors like Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani. However, Omi confronted the challenge successfully.

THE MOST PROMISING NEWCOMER (FEMALE)

  • Kalki Koechlin (Dev D)
  • Mahie Gill (Dev D)
  • Gauhar Khan (Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year) The film may not have done well but her role was performed very well by the model-turned actress.
  • Giselle Monteiro (Love Aaj Kal)

    BEST MUSIC = PRITAM ALL THE WAY! He is at the top of his career, as he composed the best music for Life in a Metro, Jab We Met, Billu, Love Aaj Kal and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Khanani! Gosh the list of his superior work is endless, he must win!

    I cannot choose if Love Aaj Kal or Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Khahani should win for Best Music, but then again Pritam will win either way!
