Although I was hoping beyond hope that her character would run off with the French chef!!Wink


@Bold: BINGO! I was one of those who was ARDENTLY hoping for this!! Cry gutted that it didn't happen. ( even though I knew it never would.)

That would have been stupid and too dramatic honestly speaking

I am happy Gauri didn't play with character of Shashi and didn't put that angle of love! Few months of togetherness and years of companionship... Shashi took right step

Ya, true.. Which is why we said 'hoping against hope'.. But then again.. It is the movies. A Huge & Vast Playground for all sorts of Fantasies. Wink

I support PC in this.

It's shocking that her performance was not even given a critics' award! Or any special award.

Award shows even invent categories at last moment for other stars. But PC was ignored.

Barfi was a very difficult role and it was no mean feat for a glamorous actress like PC to do justice to that role the way she did.

Award juries have their own favorites.

Personally I agree with Priyanka, Vidya was quite ordinary in Kahaani, but then the whole film was about her and it was very successful. Nobody but her could understand it better because in 2008, Ash had delivered a better performance in Jodhaa Akbar than her in Fashion, but she walked away with the awards because hers was a female oriented movie with her carrying the whole film on her shoulders.

It is quite common. I think in some interview, Vidya had said she thought she gave a better performance in No one killed Jessica but she got all the awards for The Dirty Picture, for the same reason - the latter was totally carried on her shoulders whereas NOKJ was more of a shared effort.

Jaya Ji, is it you?
Sorry just had to say that LOL


Jaya ji Jaya ji kya cheekh rahe ho? Mere school mein padte thei kya? Angry

PC actually said 'my performance was more nuanced..."
That's so arrogant.  Leave it to others to say if true but don't go around praising yourself!

Agreed. This is so unlike PC. This is what I would imagine someone like Kareena would say.

Full respect to SriDevi for not saying a word and gracefully accepting defeat.. But I can tell for sure EV was more loved than Barfi or Kahaani. At least I did.

How would that be stupid? It was the French guy who changed Shashi's life, got her to value herself, realise her self worth. He gave her respect that nobody else did.

Shashi's husband was an ugly MCP who devalued her, belitted her work, mocked her, demoralised her and rather teamed up with daughter to mock Shashi. He did not teach even kids to respect their mother. He made fun of her attempts to learn English. He barely ever listened to her or tried to gauge her feelings. He'd ignore her most of the time but pull her to bed when he wanted to. What kind of companionship is that?

Gauri Shinde ended film this way only to appease traditional audience and uphold stereotypes about how an Indian woman ideally ought to be like. Till the end she kept Sridevi weak with her family. Shashi could never even control her crude daughter. Shashi's quitting her classes just to be with family and help with wedding prep was also backwardness. Why show her feeling guilty about focusing on self and "forgetting" about family? An hour or two of a class makes a woman selfish and careless? If son was injured then it was husband's responsibility to handle him too.
The last part of the film is pretty disappointing IMO.

The most surprising thing was Richa winning the critics award over PC-Vidya-Sridevi at Filmfare Awards.ConfusedShe is a good actress, no doubt about that but PC and Sri both were a step ahead of Richa.Maybe FF had to please its critics by awarding the 'off beat' actors of Bollywood than giving to the usual Ranbir and Vidya both the times.
