Things that we do not agree with Filmfare Awards 2009:
1. A Wednesday did not get a single award at Filmfare Awards 2009, in spite of being the most under-rated movie that stood out all guns. Most would agree that A Wednesday deserved awards for the best script(this was really an original story), best dialogue and best actor in a critics's role to Naseeruddin Shah.

2. Paresh Rawal has arguably given his career best performance in Mumbai Meri Jaan. Sad that he was even nominated!

3. Why has Filmfare scrapped the 'Best Actor/Actress in Comic Role'? What if you have someone excelling in a tragic or serious role, and the other doing absolutely amazing in a comic role? Shoudn't the actor playing comedy deserve better? People like Rajpal Yadav, Paresh Rawal will be side-lined if they scrape the comic role awards. This year, Abhishek Bachchan had a chance to win for his funny act in Dostana.

4. The best male singer awards which went to Sukhvinder for 'Haule Haule' is a suspect. Songs like 'Zara Si" from K.K for Jannat, Pehli Nazar from Atif Aslam for Race and 'Kabhi Kabhi Aditi' from Rashid Ali for Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na were far more popular in terms of music and singing. May be Sukhvinder won it as a consolation because he missed going to the Oscars. Let us honor him here instead, if he couldn't go to Hollywood,isn't it?

5. Hrithik Roshan's was a critically acclaimed role, not a popular one. He should have got the Best Actor critics award. In the popularity polls for best actor of 2008, 44 percent voted for Shahrukh Khan, 41 percent for Aamir Khan and just 8 percent for Hrithik Roshan. It goes without question that popular performances were of SRK(Rab Ne) and Aamir Khan(Ghajini). Both of them saved the industry from incurring huge losses at recession. It is useless giving awards to Aamir Khan because he cares a fig for these awards. You can't give it to SRK every year, so it is better to give Hrithik the best actor (popular) award.

'A wednesday' really deserve award for best screenplay....

I felt the same about Filmfare awards given..JA was never a popular choice..Ghajini or Rabne deserved it more. When u call it popular awards weightage shud be given to both, a good performance and BO success, and both SRK and Aamir did as well as hrithik and their movies were much bigger successes. So if one goes by tradition one of them deserved it. So i also feel its exactly as u said, they were caught up about giving it to aamir or shah rukh, so gave it to hrithik, harmless and noncontroversial decision.

totally agree... RNBDJ or Ghajini were good movies too and box office success at the same time. although JA was an excellent movie it was too long to be a success, and i honestly think that Hrithik did a good job but he cant compare to Aamir o N. Shah, i think Naseer deserved the award for best actor.
Also the comic role thing makes me a bit sad, because i think tha K. Kher in Dostana and V. PAthak in RNBDJ gave very interesting characters and wonderful, enjoyable performances
