Star Screen Awards 2011 : Winners

17th Annual Star Screen Awards were announced last night. Since past few years, Filmfare lost their credibility at least for me. Many choices were debatable. And Screen Awards are quite balanced ones. But this time, it seems they too have lost it just to please everyone in the industry. Giving 'Popular' awards, 'Best Performer' awards and so on..

Here is the list of winners - with my take [and yes, these are 'my' thoughts, feel free to disagree].

Deserving :

Best Actor (Male) - Salman Khan
Best Actor (Female) - Vidya Balan
Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male) - Arshad Warsi
Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female) Shernaz Patel - Guzaarish
Best Playback Singer (Male) Rahat Fateh Ali Khan - Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji
Best New Talent In Music Mamta Sharma - Munni Badnaam - Dabangg
Most Promising Newcomer (Male) Ranveer Singh - Band Baaja Baaraat
Most Promising Newcomer (Female) Sonakshi Sinha
Most Promising Debut Director Maneesh Sharma
Best Ensemble Cast Peepli [Live]
Best Choreography Farah Khan - Munni Badnaam - Dabangg
Best Action Master Vijayan - Dabangg
Best Dialogue Habib Faisal - Band Baaja Baraat
Best Child Artiste Ayaan Barodia - Udaan
Best Editing Namrata Rao - Band Baaja Baraat
Best Background Score Wayne Sharp - Raajneeti
Best Special Effects Srinivas Mohan - Robot
Best Sound Vikram Joglekar - Road Movie
Best Cinematography Sudeep Chatterji - Guzaarish

I disagree with -

Best Director Vikramaditya Motwane - Udaan
Best Film - Udaan
Best Actor in a Negative Role (Male/Female) Ronit Roy - Udaan
Best Music Sajid Wajid - Dabangg & Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy - My Name Is Khan
Best Playback Singer (Female) Shreya Ghoshal - Bahara - I Hate Luv Storys
Best Lyrics Gulzar - Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji - Ishqiya
Best Screenplay - Anjum Rajabali, Prakash Jha - Raajneeti

I know I am taking risk by not agreeing with Udaan's awards. OK, it was a good movie, but it wasn't so perfect that it is the "best" of the year. Again - Ronit Roy for negative role. I think that should go to menacing Abhimanyu Singh in Rakhtcharitra, even Chhedi Singh of Dabaang.

WTF is with Sajid-Wajid's award. No doubt, the song created waves-but it was plagiarized. And this IS the award which shall go to Udaan, also the award for best Lyricist. When it comes to award a female playback singer, we always tend to honor 'sweet, melodious' voice. But when will our awards grow up to mark the awesomeness of Sunidhi who can sing both-Sheila and Surili Ankhiyon wale-so effortlessly. For screenplay - isn't the best should be 'razor sharp' and 'flawless'- which Raajneeti was not. No doubt first half was mind-blowing, second half was stretched.

'We have to keep everyone happy' Awards :

Best Actor Male Popular Choice - Shahrukh Khan - My Name Is Khan
Best Actor Popular Choice (Female) Katrina Kaif - (Raajneeti - Tees Maar Khan)
est Performer Ajay Devgn - Golmaal 3
Most Popular Music Pritam - Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai
Ramnath Goenka Memorial Awards My Name Is Khan
Special Jury Awards For Spectacular Cutting Of Age Technology Robot

Seriously, Ajay for Golmaal??? Wasn't he awesome in Raajneeti or OUATIM ?

Listed below are the winners, for the films that I haven't seen. So, no comments. ;)

Best Actor in a Comic Role (Male/Female) Sanjay Mishra - Phas Gaye Re Obama
Best Story Amit Rai - Road To Sangam    
Best Art Direction Mukund Gupta - Do Dooni Chaar 


  1. The Katrina thing was madness! Agree with you on all except I really liked the lyrics of Dil To Bacha Hai Ji. Anyway aajkal ke movie awards have become quite a joke :-/

  2. I dont think Salman should've gotten best actor by any stretch. he'd be the best popular choice for sure.

  3. Umang Amin10:56

    i am agree ...Salman is a Very popular but i don't think so he deserve the best actor award .

  4. Vidya Balan is a great actress and she deserves the award. Greetings.

  5. I'm fine with Salman winning (or SRK's performance in MNIK deserved it, but if SRK normally wins because his films sell most tickets, then Salman's beaten everyone in that game with Dabangg I guess)...but Katrina??!!! Echo Pitu's comment on aaj kal ke movie awards. Little credibility no matter which, although they say Star and Filmfare are the biggest ones. Oh well. Thanks for this list, though. At least it's good for the shopping/viewing list. Peace.

  6. 'popular' - katrina - award. That's it. :) Dont you know Screen mag ko bhi maska maarna padta hai to those who are at the top and influential? LOL But as you said, TBF, the list is good for making the 'to watch' list.

  7. Best Background Score Wayne Sharp - Raajneeti
    WTF! Its just typical European melodies..that can be heard in European movies like Harry Potter.
    ARR for Jhootha Hi Sahi or Raavan deserved for the best background score.

    Gulzar deserved best lyrics!

    Best singer(female): Anushka Manchanda for By the way from Aisha!

    Best cinematography: never saw guzaarish. but Raavan was a strong contender.

    for the movies u didnt see,
    i must say only those awards were best deserving. Art direction in Do DOoni Chaar was awesome. And Sanjay Mishra created a havoc with his awesome dialogue delivery and perfect timing.
    Road To Sangam, indeed, had best story of the year.

  8. @Anup thanks for your comment. Oh, yes, score of Rahman is always a delight. Happy to find another fan of Jhootha Hi sahi.
    Saw do dooni char few days back, and i can see why it got an award for art direction. Superb.
