Screen issue

The winning streak

Vidya Balan is the flavour of the season and the game changer for woman centric films. Her ascent has not been smooth, in fact she's worked her way up to the big league of actresses over the past four years by giving brilliant performances. Vidya's fortunes changed with Paa (2009) for which she received her first Screen Award for best actress. She then followed it up with her second Screen best actress award in the following year with Ishqiya, third for The Dirty Picture and this year with Kahaani, creating a record of sorts.

The actress won the National Award for The Dirty Picture after winning the Screen Awards, which clearly shows that the Screen Awards are solely judged on the basis of performances.

I am eagerly waiting the release of Ghanchakkar and I will not be surprised if she wins an award this year too for her superlative acting.

In the right direction

The interview with film-maker Rakesh Roshan in Screen issue dated February 1, was very interesting. It is true that in spite of an attractive personality, he failed to make a mark as an actor, but as a director, Roshan has given us incredible movies like Khoon Bhari Maang and Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai. If Rekha gave one of her best performances under his guidance in KBM, then KPH had a the director treated the double role formula with a difference. He also skilfully used the mobile phone to expose the mastermind (Anupam Kher) behind the conspiracy to eliminate Hrithik. KPH turned out to be a super duper hit. I wish luck to both, Rakesh Roshan and his son Hrithik, in all their future endeavours.
