My picks for year 2006 - movies and more

Movies -

1. Rang De Basanti - This movie got a lot of mixed reviews - was even thought of as a movie which can mis guide the youth but for me it is hands down the best movie of year 2006. A great story executed in a completely new outlook. Director has done a fantastik job on co-ordinating the past and the presence in one story line and A R Rehman's music and acting by Aamir, Sidharth, Kunal, Sherman, Soha , Atul and Alice only adds perfection to it. I was enable to find a single flaw.
2. Dhoom2 - Another "Chor-Police" movie, which because of a weak story line got only *** from me but well the execution of the scenes by Hrithik puts it up on the year end chart!!! Amazing Amazing Amazing Hrithik!! And the best onscreen chemistry in the current times - Hrithik and Ash look fabulous together!! Don't miss it if you havn't watched it make sure you catch it while it is still in theatre.
3. Lage Raho Munnabhai - A sequel to Munnabhai MBBS - this movie is hilarious and emotional at the same time. A great concept executed in a great way - Arshad and Boman have done a fantastic job so as Sanjay and Dilip Prabhavalkar. Vidya and the melodious music brings freshness to this movie. A feel good movie worth all the repeat watches.

The movies just edgedout - DON, Fanna, Golmaal, Krissh

Actors -

1. Hrithik Roshan - I would have given him number one just for Dhoom2 but well he also has Krish(another blockbuster) movie under his belt - I don't think there can be any doubt on saying "2006 belonged to Hrithik Roshan" - I love his strive for perfection.....
2. Aamir Khan - Another perfectionist of industry, he had 2 movies released this year for a change and walla both of them were hit!! Great performance in both the movies puts him in the number 2 seat!!!
3. Shahrukh Khan - People have been saying this is the year when Hrithik took the crown away from the Badshah of bollywood!!! Well I don't quite agree there - no doubt I think the year belonged to Hrithik but Shahrukh obviously proved him self with DON and KANK. Though I didn't like KANK that much I can't deny the fact that it was the biggest opening movie in the overseas. And even if DON recieved mixed reviews - I absolutely loved the movie and Shahrukh as DON!!

The actors just edged out - Ajay Devgan (Omkara, Golmaal)

Actresses -

1. Aishwarya Rai - I know a lot of you would not agree with my choice here but I think she has done a good job in Umraoujaan and a decent job in Dhoom2. And weather you agree or not Dhoom2 is one of the biggest hit of the year and I know it is out and out Hrithik's movie Ash gets a little bit of credit too.
2. Priyanka Chopra - With two hits under her belt Priyanka had to be in top 3. The only reason she is not on the top spot is she had very little to contribute in both the movies.
3. Kajol - Fantastic job in Fanaa!!! A huge contribution in making the movie a "HIT"!!!

The actresses just edgedout - Karina Kapoor(Omkara), Bipasha Basu(Corporate), Kangana(Woh Lamhe)

Music -

1. Woh Lamhe - Amazing melodious music by Pritam. I loved the musice of Woh Lamhe and definitely think it was the best music of year 2006.
2. DON - Great Remix of old songs by Shankar Ehsaan Loy- a lot of people havn't liked the new tunes in the movie but I loved the new tunes too.
3. Rang de basanti - Yes A R Raheman has to be in top 3. Great music be it Aapani Pathshala or Rang de basanti.

The music just edged out - Jaaneman, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Fanaa
