The Fantastico 22nd Star Screen Awards 2016 Where The Deserving Were Honoured03:27
The fact that makes the Star Screen awards different and more awesome from the Film Fare is that it's an award given by the film fraternity to the film fraternity by the way of a jury. Unlike other awards like the Film Fares where not all who deserve are honored, Star Screen awards are often the jury's / critics's choice.
This year's Star Screen awards, held on the 24th of January, was sensational with all the who's who of Bollywood attending it. It was a total star studded evening with the magical hosts Karan Johar and comedy king Kapil Sharma engaging the audience with their witty comments.
The best thing I loved about the Star Screen awards was that they didn't give away the 'Best film award' to the undeserving 'Bajirao Mastani' and some other awards which it totally didn't deserve!
'Bajirao Mastani', in my opinion was one crap of a movie. The only good thing about the movie was Ranveer and Priyanka's amazing acting. The music was really bad. Sanjay Leela Bhansali shouldn't have experimented with his own skills and chosen someone like AR Rehman for the movie's music instead. Deepika was good but I felt she didn't give her best in 'Bajirao Mastani'!
The reason I am not a Film Fare awards fan is that their awards are biased and go to the wrong people the majority of times.
But Star screen awards was a different story, awarding people who deserved. That's the reason I prefer to call it simply fantastico!
The awards I felt were best deserved:
Best Actor(s) male: Amitabh Bachchan for Piku and Ranveer Singh for Bajirao MastaniThis was very well deserved! Big B was simply spiffing in the movie Piku
Best Actress female: Deepika Padukone for Piku.Another well deserved award! Deepika was splendid in this movie. :D
Best Actor Popular choice male: Shah Rukh Khan for Dilwale
The movie might not be up to mark but Shahrukh was at his stunning best and totally deserved this!
Best supporting actor: Priyanka Chopra for Bajirao Mastani
Priyanka has evolved a lot since her first film in Bollywood and she has given her best in Bajirao Mastani.
Best Actor Male By Jury Choice: Irrfan Khan for Piku I guess!
Totally deserving. He makes you laugh like crazy in the film Piku! :D
Best Film Popular Choice: Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Bajrangi Bhaijaan was indeed the best film of 2015 and it was SO much better than Bajirao Matani.
Best story: Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Three cheers. It was indeed a very different story.
Lifetime Achievement Award: Rishi Kapoor
One legend of a man. Totally deserving!
There were some which I did not like too but hey! The fact that the best film award didn't go to 'Bajirao Mastani' is enough for me to go all smiles! :D
