Main Hoon NaMain Hoon Na



It has been a long year, with more than a couple of movies comfortably stretching beyond the three-hour mark, and it has seen its share of commendable films. However, picking the best at the end of the year is always tough. But the hard part is over. The votes have been counted, and the results are in, thanks to readers internationally. Here are the Best Films of 2004: 5. Khakee Rajkumar Santoshi crafted this taut cop thriller, starring Amitabh Bachchan in yet another role as the dedicated policeman yearning to prove himself. Akshay Kumar and Tusshar produced unexpectedly competent performances.

Akshay stole the show as a reluctant-to-assist crooked cop while Tusshar was above par as the earnest rookie sub-inspector. Intrigue was provided by the unpredictable Aishwarya Rai, seen in her first negative role. The bad guy was Ajay Devgan, in a rather predictable performance.


4. Lakshya This is where critics differ from audiences. Lakshya was not a bad film, by any standard, except that it came from Farhan Akhtar. Farhan, setting himself an impossibly high bar after Dil Chahta Hai, came crashing down with this big-budget film, with poorly etched characters and a simplistic concept. Not to mention the lack of detailing.

Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta were the star attractions, and they did not disappoint their bevy of loyal fans.

And then there was the Main aisa kyon hoon dance, which catapulted the film into some great visibility




3. Hum Tum

When Harry Met Sally worked well with desi audiences in this Kunal Kohli directed avatar, which had Saif Ali Khan playing an unflappable cartoonist and Rani Mukerji his irrepressible muse.

The film meandered frivolously through a repetitive plot cliche, but the actors carried it off. It was Saif's first big individual film success, and Rani is the industry's current darling!

The high points: Rishi Kapoor and Kiron Kher, playing the smile-provoking parents.



2. Veer-Zaara You could call it a really long film, but if there's a director audiences just don't seem to tire of, it's Yash Chopra.

This love legend is a lavish epic on a wonderfully extravagant scale, and crowds starved of the concept of true romance lapped it up loyally. The film stars the three most successful stars of the industry: Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, and the man leading the rest of the pack, Shah Rukh Khan.

Add to it Chopra's trademark blend of emotions, and a dash of the legendary Madan Mohan's music, and you have a film that can't help but be successful.



1. Main Hoon Na The year 2004 saw big directors faltering at the helm, but Farah Khan stepped up to the plate with panache.

With good buddy SRK pouring in the crores, Farah's Main Hoon Na is a misunderstood spoof, where she affectionately, and constantly, references all the films she -- and most of us -- grew up watching. Agreed, it may not be subtle, but it is an endearing tribute to films we've all, at some point, obssessed upon.

Plus, it has a ravishing Sushmita Sen, some rather decent youngsters, Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao, and the inimitable Shah Rukh Khan.

When you watch the film again, look out for the scene where Zayed is hanging from the roof and SRK is dashing to the rescue: the music playing is from the Omen saga, from when the nurse is hanged from the roof. Brilliant!

I have a question, would Swades fall into the 2004 category or
will it fall into the 2005 category?

My vote goes to Veer Zaara.
