Zee Cine Awards 2012: What’s your verdict?

We think the show lacked much-needed gravitas and the punches couldn’t possibly be any weaker

Simply cashing in on a superstar’s popularity isn’t enough for an awards function these days. Considering these events have moved beyond the good old-fashioned ‘paying homage and celebrating cinema’ mode, they better do justice to the new trend of entertaining viewers with sardonic barbs. So as we watched Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra imitating other stars and taking a dig at every movie that was nominated in the Best Film category at the Zee Cine Awards, we couldn’t fathom the need to do so, especially since the humour seemed so forced. As they continued foisting on us more and more and increasingly limper jokes, what really stood out was Farhan Akhtar’s wordplay. The actor-director came up with the lamest yet funny jokes and unsparingly criticised everyone from ZNMD, including himself, saying that the bulls in the movie had better expressions than the actors. Apart from Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor was a refreshing break from the conventional leg-pulling act by King Khan and PC. The Kapoor kid looked hot and as we went all gaga over the biomechanics of the nimble-footed dancer, he left us panting for more.

Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif grooved to the Rockstar and Chikni Chameli numbers; while the Dance India Dance crew did a catchy and happy act. Amidst all the entertainment, the industry paid their respects to the late Shammi Kapoor and Dev Anand, with Dev’s son Suneil getting obviously emotional, while Shammi’s wife Neela Devi watched her grand-nephew do his little jig and smiled with restrained dignity. All in all this overhyped event held at Macau was nothing beyond average. As SRK and PC put on their shining armour and saved the function by their mere screen presence and good chemistry, we think from next time on the show’s honchos could do us a favour by hiring a better scriptwriter.
