The year of SALMAN

The actor should be a happy and proud man on his birthday, today

Meena Iyer I TNN 

    AS Salman Khan brings in his 45th birthday today, he has enough reason to yell from the rooftop of Galaxy Apartments, Mumbai. The year clearly belongs to him. His detractors may argue that he doesn't have Aamir Khan's acting skills or Shah Rukh Khan's charisma. However, the youngest of the Khan-triumvirate has proved that he has superstar power in abundance. Not only did he hit a purple patch with Dabangg, the highest grosser of 2010, he also won hearts with his role as the anchor of Big Boss Season 4. His Being Human work also won him more brownie points than all of Bollywood's muscle men combined. 
    Trade consultant Amod Mehra says, "This year will see a total of 237 Hindi movies (including dubbed ones) release till December 31. And, the only two genuine super hits are Dabangg and Golmaal 3. TMK is just four days old, so I'm not even including its figures in this analysis. But honestly, this year if you ask me Khaano mein Khan kaun hai, I would reply Salman Khan. He did have a flop in Veer but he made up lost ground with Dabangg in a major way. He has left his contemporaries gasping for breath because right now he has a superb lead.'' 
    Analysing the year so far, trade sources say that besides the fact that two genuine hits to their credit because later in the year, both delivered turkeys in Anjaana Anjaani and Break Ke Baad. 
    The other young actor, Shahid Kapoor, managed an average Badmaash Company but delivered two duds in Chance Pe at the ticket windows. Aamir Khan's home production Peepli Live made money for its makers; and Shah Rukh Khan's My Name is Khan is the biggest hit overseas. 
    "Of course, there are films like Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge, Badmaash Company, Ishqiya, Khichdi — The Movie, Love Sex Aur Dhoka and Tere Bin Laden that got critical acclaim and managed decent numbers too,'' says Amod. Distributor N R Pachisia says, "Robot and Rajinikanth weaved their magic, too. Though the film was dubbed in Hindi, it managed to create a furore here. The original version in Tamil created new records. But, of course, we are concerned with only the numbers in Hindi.'' 
    Interesting films like 
Phas Gaya Re Obama, Do Dooni Chaar, Udaan and Well Done Abba got more than their share of praise from the critics. But 2010 was a disastrous year for star sons Hrithik Roshan (Kites, Guzaarish) and Abhishek Bachchan (Raavan, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey), for sexy man John Abraham (Aashayein, Jhootha Hi Sahi), 50-plus men Anil Kapoor (No Problem), Sanjay Dutt (Knock Out, No Problem) and Amitabh Bachchan (Teen Patti.) 
    Some of the above mentioned movies lost most of their heavy duty investment. Salman and Ajay Devgn (Golmaal-3, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai) had golden runs at the box office respectively, 2010 also saw youngsters Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan hit the bull's eye with Raajneeti and I Hate Luv Storys respectively. In fact, both these young actors got plain lucky in that they had Dance and Milenge Milenge. So actually, 2010 did nothing to enhance his BO status. 
Akshay Kumar got saved because TMK has taken a good initial and Housefull managed to make some money. His Action Replayy and Khatta Meetha though came up croppers Hits and misses
