Salman Khan’s Bodyguard


There is one word for Salman Khan’s performance in Bodyguard – endearing. When our bhai said, “Muj par ek ehsan karna ki muj par koi ehsan na karna,” there was madness all over.

Salman Khan’s Ready


Comedy, music and above all Salman Khan’s performance — this combination worked wonders on box-office in Ready.

Ajay Devgan’s Singham


While the screenplay and dialogues were par excellence, the performances of actors were out-of-the-world. Whether it was Ajay Devgan as Bajirao Singham, or Prakash Raj as Jaykant Shikre, it seemed, both of them were born to play their roles in Singham.

Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture

  1. Ab King Ki Aane Wali Sari Filme 3d & Imax 3D Me Aane Wali Hai Yash Chopra Se Lekar Rohit Ki Chennai Express Tak Sab Kuch 3D,Now Say wAT u wANT tERCHNOLOGICAL iNDIAN cINEMA Or Copy Cinema,Choice Is UR

  2. Murder 2 was awesome,it’s storyline,music,acting,screenplay,editing was nice.I’v expected nothing from d muvi but it blew my mind in hall.And Ra.One xpctns were very high but it dissapoints but kudos to srk for making something different!Indian audience don’t recognize such efforts.

  3. Making movies with 3D with useless script, language never works.waste of big money and telling its a family movie was much big disaster.
    it was meant to fool public and regain investment.

    So,clean family entertainer was Bodyguard with good songs. for 2011

  4. srk releases his film in telagu and tamil and higher screen numbers yet they no match to salman khan ultimate shame next year more of the same

    • dude just to show u simple calculation…agar SRK ki RA1 ko tamil telegu main release nahi bhi karte to utne screen main to ra 1 hindi relese hoti na bhai…ok 5 cr ki jagah 3-4 cr ka business hota ..then whats the huge difference??salman ki movies utni he screen main hindi main relese hoti hain aur salman koi movie to tamil telegu main dub nahi karta becoz woh to unse he copy karta hain… ek tha tiger tamil telegu main dub hoke relese hogi kyuki copy nahin hain….;)

  5. Ranbir probably gave the best performance for a lead actor in recent times and was unanimously appreciated.. but rockstar is not even there.. thats ridiculous..

  6. rockstar rockstar rockstar.. everyone inside their conscience knows ranbir gave the best lead performance of 2011. To include others like ready and not include rockstar is nonsensical

  7. ofcourse it Don2 and than rockstar but this bullish don’t added this…
    now the vote goes to Ra.one and thn Delly belly
    grw up indian..
    kab tk is bodyguard aur ready jaisi faltu film dekhte rahoge…

  8. To Komal Nahta,

    I have seen u raving on and on about the economics of movies, the revenue they generate etc. But do that actually determine who the big stars are..A movie made on 20 crores may generate 60 crores and a movie made on 50 crores may generate 70 crores..
    Between these two movies obviously the former is a bigger hit as it has earned more revenue.. But is the star of that movie a bigger star. There are two parameters here:
    1. The profit generated for the industry
    2. The amount of crowds pulled to the ticket window.

    In the above case, while the movie made on 20 crores generated more profit, the movie made on 50 crores succeeded in attracting more crowds.. Ra.one and Don 2 with all the economics, hype(Don 2 didnt have any) still have generated comparable money in terms of crowds going to the theatre in comparison to Salmans movies bodyguard and ready.. Yes certainly the profit for distributors is more in Salmans movies but that does not make him the bigger star… This is SDalmans best phase in his 24 long years in the induustry , yet he is not the clear winner which shahrukh was before salmans good phase started.. Thats the point here.. Every one might have a good phase in their careers but the gap they create between themselvces and their contemporaries in that good phase is what shows their worth…

  9. Best movie is Handsome Hunk Emraan hashmi’s super megha blockbuster MURDER 2 . It have a meaningfull and unpredictable story. Not bodyguard,not rockstar,not ready. Only murder 2 is the best film in 2011story. And it will give to emraan best actor in leading role’s award. Sure.

  10. Ra.one in these given but don2 is best movie aftr 3idiots but u komal u r made tum ready,bodygaure,delhi belly jessi faltu bakwas movie ko nominate ker sakte ho to phir don2 nd rockstar me kya kami thi so in srk word to critics-“go to hell” srk rocks rok sako rok ko

  11. don 2 is a awesome movie nd the king shahrukh khan is superb in don nd also priyanka chopra (jangali billi) acting is superb. finally don2 is a great movie……

  12. Which is the highest grossing bollywood movie of 2011?
    The answer is:: highest grossing bollywood movie of 2011 is “bodyguard” [budget:60cr,collections:india-142cr,overseas-41cr,total=183cr,] (all time blockbuster)
    “ra.one” [budget:135cr,collections:india-124cr,overseas-49cr,total=173cr,]
    and then can be “don 2” still running now!

  13. ra.one is of course the best movie u should not support bodygaurd , its copy of south..nd ra.one’s script is original ..RA.ONE iz the best bollywood movie

  14. Bodyguard n ready should b rated to the left side of origin bt these r in best movie contention. Filmakers seeing this vl never attempt a gud movie because they knw just a clunky bodyguard can get then awards n salman khan’s act wasn’t endearing.it ws him sleepwalking.

  15. its ready and bodygard…. both entertaing mv….best comedy, best action,best actiong…. even srk don2 is good mv… but as bodygard and ready comes in first place…

  16. Don2 is d best movie of d year or singham or znmd….y bodyguard n ready r dere…dey just did gud collections bt were highly criticised by d critics…

  17. people in south are watching more srk movies in south not salman….and also salman movies are maximum telugu remakes r tamil…bcoz my self in south india
