Filmfare Awards 2018 – Filmfare Unfair.

Screen Shot 2018-01-19 at 11.53.59 amThe most prestigious Awards in the Bollywood fraternity – Filmfare seems to have lost popularity in the recent year’s. The Nepotism Roast Kangana Ranaut raised with the AIB team; filmfare only makes it real.
For those who missed; take a look at the video below and enjoy the sarcasm at its best.

The most popular Awards Filmfare has Trapped in the Best Film category but the only actor who made Trapped work has no nomination for the best actor category; that is Rajkumar Rao.

Tiger Zinda Hai the film that took the Box Office by Storm – numbers the film has gained breaking all records only suggest how many people have watched the film over and over again, fails to make it to the best Film category though. Forget Salman Khan’s nomination for the Best Actor; many would deny the fact of he winning the same, but nomination yes- he does deserve the nomination if Hrithik and Shahrukh gets nominated for Kaabil and Raees that failed any critical acclaim or met the box office results.

Newton the film that was just average gets nominated for the Oscars but doesn’t make it to the Best Film category at Filmfare Awards neither RajKumar Rao is nominated as the best actor for the same film. Infact, he gets nominated for one of the best films Bareilly Ki Barfi as a supporting cast wherein he was as good as the second lead than the supporting cast in the film. Indeed, he was the Man of 2018 for Bollywood.

Badrinath ki Dulhania is nominated under the Best Film category shows the awards are driven by some Production houses and nepotism is here to stay. YRF’s Tiger Zinda Hai blockbuster of the industry doesn’t get place in the popular award category. They miss out on Pankaj Tripathi as the best actor in “Gurgaon” who delivered and the film was great too. They chop Pakistani actor roles but they nominate Saba Qamar for Best female lead for Hindi Medium though she was nice but a nomination is little too much when Swara Bhaskar is left out for a stellar performance in a great film “Anarkali of Aarah”. It is fine to have just 2-3 nominations that are deserving than just filling the numbers.

The film that is nominated for Best Screenplay is not nominated in the Best ORIGINAL story category “Secret Superstar” neither the film is nominated in the best dialogue category which indeed had lines that motivated many to pursue their dreams.

Newton is nominated in the Best ORIGINAL story when the world came to know the film was inspired if not copied from the Iranian film “secret ballot” that’s why probably Rajkumar Rao has no nomination for the best actor for Newton but the story has a nomination.
Waah Re Filmfare – very unfair.
