A-Z of all that went up, down, over, under, side in Bollywood this year. The Dictionary Twenty10.
A : Ainvai
Main Te Ainvai Ainvai Ainvai Lut Gaya is every band baajaa waala 's most requested song in every baaraat .
Middle Class Janakpuri waale do binness with a twist of dhinchak.
The loveable galli was retro revived in Ishqiya.
The year's biggest hit. So what if till date many don't know how to spell it or what it means? The money came hud hud in the bank.
Have to give this one to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He killed so many jokes because he came up with it first. It was his Guzaarish that Euthanasia becomes Ethanasia.
F: First Time Directors
Take a bow, class 2010: Abhishek Chaubey ( Ishqiya ), Vikramaditya Motwane ( Udaan ), Anusha Rizvi ( Peepli [Live] ), Abhishek Sharma ( Tere Bin Laden ), Habib Faisal ( Do Dooni Chaar ), Abhinav Kashyap ( Dabangg ), Maneesh Sharma ( Band Baajaa Baaraat ).
For Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji. Simply immortal.
The dude of the year. With Do Dooni Chaar (his directorial debut) and
Band Baajaa Baaraat (which he wrote), he captured the zing
of middle-class Delhi: its aspirations and lingo, its binness and
The unique selling point of every movie.
Nobody could escape the Rajini joke express. The never ending jokes made for incessant forwards, retweets and status updates. My favourite? "When Rajinikanth looks in a mirror the mirror shatters, because not even glass is stupid enough to get in between Rajinikanth and Rajinikanth."
My Name Is Khan and I'm not a terrorist said SRK. Khaano mein se Khan, Tees Maar Khan says Akshay Kumar.
Karan Johar made it Luv Storys, Dibakar Bannerjee added Sex next to it in Love Sex Aur Dhoka while Bitto Sharma of Band Baajaa Baaraat asked the heroine if she would degi love. Bollywood's fascination with the L word continued.
She of the Badnaam Hui fame.
The farmer finally got a name in our movies.
Obama was the main focus in My Name Is Khan as well as Phas Gaye Re Obama while Osama was the raison d' etre for Tere Bin Laden .
India's Official Entry to the Oscars coined a new phrase for TV journalism.
The spiciest quotes of the season all courtesy Karan Johar's chat show. The pick of the lot? Deepika Padukone's advice to ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor to endorse a brand of condoms.
R: Ranveer Singh
The Singh who became an overnight King. A star is born.
She of the Jawani fame.
All big ticket names like Raavan, Kites, Guzaarish, Action Replayy, No Problem, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se tanked.
Vikramaditya Motwane's coming of age film went to the uber prestigious Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival.
V: Veena Mallik
The Pakistani starlet might not have much to do with Bollywood yet but she's fultoo Bollywood, much more than other actresses. Let's wager: the Bigg Boss inmate will sign a film pronto.
There were many W*F moments at the movies this year. Housefull climax of laughter gas and No Problem's farting guerilla took the cake.
X: Xtreme Close Ups On TV
Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit all caught the TV virus.
The return of the banner with the sleeper hit Band Baajaa Baaraat.
Z: Zandu Balm
