Filmfare Awards

I got to watch the Filmfare Awards on Sony Television at 2000 hrs India time on Sunday. The Filmfare awards are considered the most established and oldest award functions in the Indian Film Industry. Obviously its a great brand and does much for the magazine formerly owned by the Times Group, a media house in India. About the Awards themselves, they are popular awards and frankly I never am in favour of 'popular' awards as they leave too much to chance and public opinion.

The Awards telecast itself was nice with some great hosting by the younger generation of actors Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. Thankfully we did not have hosts like Sajjid Khan or the kind of crass conversation that he and his sister pass off as humour (watched the Star Screen Awards where Sajjid and Farah rightfully got put in their place by Ashuthosh Gowariker?). All in all lots of entertainment. What I don't like about these Award shows is that they are made more as TV Entertainment and TV Content rather than honouring the craft.

With Indians winning the Oscars maybe things will change. And no I do not think the Oscars are perfect either, but yes, I do enjoy them and do give them some credibility.
