Filmfare to Hrithik, Jodha Akbar

I am personally very happy about this year’s Filmfare winners. It is refreshing to see the awards not going to the default ones. My wife and I decided to not follow the proceedings as soon as we saw that SRK was nominated for Rab Ne. I had watched the film during its first week itself, and I found that the film was not engaging. I mean SRK is good, but his role in Rab Ne was surely not good enough to validate a Filmfare nomination.

Jodha Akbar on the other had (according to me) is a master-piece. When they put Hrithik to play the role of an emperor, they were clearly serious about who plays what role. Hrithik has the the physique, voice, height and right acting skill for the role. And to all Aish fans, the movie was a complete treat. She looks more beautiful than ever in Jodha Akbar. Asutosh has done a very good job with the film-direction, although I think his team could have done a better job at marketing the film. And to top it all, it was A. R. Rahman‘s music. I think the film had all the right ingredients from the word go. I dont know if it was a commercial success or not, but to me its fine movie.
