filmfare 2006 is now a thing of the past

As of Saturday, February 25, 2006. The only live performance I'm looking forward to is Madhuri Dixit's. The critics awards went to the same entities that won the corresponding popular awards -- the last time this happened AFAIR was with Rajnigandha. And nasal nuisance Himesh Reshammiya wins for his squealing title song for Aashiq Banaya Aapne. It has truly been a "black" year for Bollywood. They're all probably so tickled at having achieved a new level of finesse and mastery while still destined to churn out one lacklustre mind-numbing flick after another.

Bemoaning the quality of the awards, the nominees and the winners amounts to expecting some diversity from a mainstream populist self-congratulatory event. To put it mildly, one can hurl curses and laments every year without any hope of the awards ever "improving."

More rants will have to wait till a viewing. Meanwhile, I offer a recent take on the Golden Jubilee ceremony last year.
