Filmfare campus poll (Part 1)


110705041919_kat 305 x 182Who’s hot? Who’s not? Who’s the next big thing? Which is the movie to watch out in 2011?  Filmfare polled campuses around Mumbai and the country. Here’s what we discovered…

With our movies getting younger and younger, small wonder that the demographics of our audience is getting younger too. Filmmakers are bending backwards catering to the bubblegum generation. So what does our GenNext aspire for? What kind of movies do they watch? Who’s their favourite actor? Who do they think will make a splash in the coming years? It was the perfect time for an opinion poll among campuses.

Collegians and their choices can open a Pandora’s Box. While some answers were predictable, some of them really took us by surprise. Imagine Katrina Kaif giving Kareena Kapoor and Kajol stiff competition in acting or Shah Rukh Khan being toppled by Hrithik Roshan. While Madhuri Dixit still rules our hearts, another legend is shown the door by the students.  Phew! Are we amazed? Hell yeah!

Also our campus dudes and dudettes have their own set of prerogatives. If 19-year-old Ravi Deshpande digs big time on masala films,  20 something Divya Rathi likes her arty flicks. But the general consensusof the college crowd is that content is king. It doesn’t matter to them if the film is big or small; if it has the A-listers or newbies, as long as the content is strong. Hence, Udaan recieves a thumbs up. So does Dabangg. They want full on entertainment but don’t like mindless movies.

Read on to find out what the country’s youth thinks about our films and the stars. We hope you have as much fun reading the survey as we had carrying it out

Best Actor

aamir2Aamir Khan 31%

Shah Rukh Khan 21%

Amitabh Bachchan 13%

Hrithik Roshan 12%

Salman Khan 10%

Ranbir Kapoor 7%

Others 6%

He has the Midas touch! His CV reads like Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. The actor hasn’t taken a misstep in the last five years. Colossal hits like Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini and 3 Idiots have slalomed him to the top of Bollywood’s ecosystem. Consequently, our collegiansare enamoured by Aamir’s cinematic brilliance. 31 per cent think he’s the best we have.

Shah Rukh Khan, despite the super hit My Name is Khan polled in 10 per cent less votes than his archrival.

Amitabh Bachchan once again proves that when it comes to acting, he is the real deal. At 69, he can still give the younger actors a run for their money. Which other actor can boast of that?

Surprisingly, Salman Khan doesn’t feature in the top four. One would have thought that Dabangg would have enamoured him to the GenNext. No!

Best Actress

KajolKajol 31%

Katrina Kaif 19%

Priyanka Chopra 19%

Kareena Kapoor 7%

Vidya Balan 7%

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan 7%

Rani Mukerji 4%

Others 6%

Boy! She has done it again. It’s unfathomable how Kajol’s popularity never seems to cease. She is one woman who is fire and ice at the same time. Supreme acting skills and that breathtaking beauty, college guys still go gaga over her. Two kids in tow, this Bengali actress is roaring away to glory.

Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra reach the finishing line together. Katrina’s acting abilities have not always been praiseworthy, but when it comes to popularity, there’s no one beating her. 7 Khoon Maaf may not have set cash registers ringing but Priyanka Chopra’s acting capers have put her up there.

Kareena Kapoor may think she’s the No. 1 but our poll tells a different story. She shares the bronze with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Vidya Balan.

Aishwarya, on the other hand shows that marriage hasn’t made a dent in her popularity

Ishqiya and No One Killed Jessica have revived interest in Vidya Balan.

Best Film

dabangg5Dabangg 28%

Udaan 18

My Name is Khan 17

Raajneeti 11%

Band Baaja Baaraat 8%

Golmaal 3 7%

Others 11%

It was the biggest hit of last year. Dabangg created a tsunami at the box office that simply drowned lesser competition. And that reflects in our poll.  So 28 per cent of our cool dudes think Dabangg was the best film last year. Incidentally the Filmfare Awards voters thought so too.

The critically-acclaimed Udaan too appealed to a section of the teens.

The others that appealed to their sensibilities included My Name Is Khan, Raajneeti and Band Baaja Baaraat.

Worst Film

Tees Maar KhanTees Maar Khan 31%

Action Replayy 21%

Kites 17%

Housefull 10%

Raavan 9%

Aisha 7%

Others 5%

When three out of four of your movies feature in the worst film category then buddy it’s time to do a serious rethink about where your career is headed.  It’s the red alert for Akshay Kumar. Better pull up your socks and pronto!  His biggest release, Tees Maar Khan, has the dubious distinction of being the worst film of 2010.

To add serious injury to insult, Action Replayy and Housefull vied for as much attention.
