  1. Awesome news for Salman-Aamir fans. Too bad for SRK fans.

    Was following the poll from the time it started, will be a memorable poll for Bollybusiness. 🙂

    • There are many conclusions come out from this poll, Will summarize later in comments. (However results are pretty amazing).

  2. 1. Sholay – no doubt about it being at the first place.
    2,3,4. AAA, HAHK, MPK – enuff said thats SALMAN KHAN all over.

    I wonder if Gadar was including in the poll.

  3. wow – i’m amazed at the results! i expected it to be so different. also goes to show how much salman is appreciated …on the internet 🙂

    • Considering Salman’s fans are mainly among the masses who don’t use internet .. just goes to show how much Salman is appreciated .. all over.

      Was best by none other than Karan Johar, Salman is the most loved person in the film industry.

  4. This is interesting result .. Agree on yakuza point that result match with boxoffice outcome of movie .. except AAA .. Good for salman fans to cheer … 🙂

  5. And as we know now that bollybusiness is number one bollywood blog with maximum Hits per day (more than SS), so any thing published here can’t be taken lightly as it is widely visible now. Yakuza .. request you to be maintain the same standard always, i know you are pretty much unbiased towards things, but want you to maintain same pace.

  6. that call salman fans.love u all the fans to vote those film & prove that we are really SK fan………..

  7. simon – wots SS ?

  8. srk has been fucked.His overrated ddlj is behind cults aaa and lagaan of aamir.deserved to even behind tzp rdb

  9. well am proud to be a Salman fan. all dem films in da top 10 r great films. now guyz we all need to go watch VEER.

  10. yakuza u didn’t answered wether lagaan or ddlj is bigger and better classic.ddlj is just other boy meets girl story.it doesnot satisfy parameters of a classic.that kkhh is a total shit.all this is candyfloss cinema and this is to be rated higher than real cults rdb tzp sarfarosh shame in such a scenario for cinema

  11. Also votes of dch were to be added which were deducted bcoz of its replacement with aankhein.you told they would be added later on and also it lost few votes bcoz ppl thought it is aankhein for sometime.make that adjustment now.

  12. It is really sad that SRK’s ordinary films are in top while his real classic Swades is left behind.
    Indians need to have some understanding of cinema.
    Cinema doesn’t mean box-office returns but content and quality in it.

  13. watch veer promo search google user mangral26

  14. Veer will be in the list soon. Promo looks simply blockbuster material 🙂

    • u e talking as if it is going to be classic salman is zero talent.srk,akki,hrithik included.anil sharma is a bad director who makes mahamasala films still apart from gadar no clean hit.2 zero talents=veer.sallu gave disaster after disaster in last 2 years

  15. OH MY GOD i just watched VEER promo.
    i dont know wat to say. amazing amazing promo
    Sallu is gonna kick ass.
    even those who dont like hime cant ignore him in dis film

  16. yakuza plz my question on lagaan ddlj and plz edit votes for dch as was said by u earlier.veer is not related to this topic.anil sharma has no quality movie in his career gadar was mad jingoism

  18. If someone were to ask me when my love affair with Bollywood started, I’d say it was shortly after the release of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) aka KKHH. In my hometown in South Africa, we have a small desi community and had no cinemas showing Indian films. We had to wait months after a film’s release to watch it on VHS (not even DVD back then!)

    I regard KKHH as ‘the’ film to put Bollywood on a global map. I’ve seen it a dozen times and to this day, it still pulls at my heart strings – 11 years later!

    THE STORY:
    Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Anjali (Kajol) are best friends in college. Anjali is very tomboy-ish, wearing sporting gear and no make-up, while Rahul is a smooth talking college Romeo. Tina (Rani Mukerjee) transfers to the college from London. She’s beautiful, feminine and graceful…everything Anjali isn’t.

    In typical Bollywood fashion, Rahul falls in love with Tina. Anjali misunderstands one of Rahul’s monologues about friendship being love and she is led to believe that her best buddy is in love with her. Of course, the viewer knows he’s gushing about Tina. Anjali realizes that she has feelings for Rahul, but when the truth surfaces and she realizes that she’s not the object of Rahul’s affection, she leaves college very suddenly… heartbroken.

    Tina and Rahul marry and have a daughter – also named Anjali. Due to complications, Tina dies during childbirth. She writes a series of letters for her daughter which must be read on every birthday. On her eighth birthday, Ajanli learns about her namesake. Apparently, Tina was aware of the older Anjali’s feelings towards Rahul back in college and in her letter to her daughter, Anjali Jr decides to reunite her father with his college friend in hopes that romance will spark between the two.

    Rahul forbids his daughter to go to a summer camp, but after he leaves for a conference, little Anjali (with the help of her loving grandmother) enrolls at a camp in Simla where her namesake is a counselor.

    THE SCENE:
    Anjali calls Rahul pretending to be sick and being the over-protective father that he is, he drops everything and rushes to his darling daughter in Simla. (Cue Song – ‘Raghupati Raghav’)

    In true Bollywood style, the events leading up to Rahul’s arrival at the camp are super-dramatic. Of course, his car breaks down and he has to catch a ride at the back of a truck with a group of young happy-clappy hippies. We even see him wading through a flock of sheep on his way to the camp.

    Rahul’s journey to Camp Sunshine is juxtaposed with the children and counselors at the camp, singing ‘Raghupati Raghav’. He finally arrives at the red gates of Camp Sunshine.

    As if by magic, the gates open, Rahul throws his arms into the air and starts running. Of course, he could have just walked, but that would go against Bollywood to be over the top! In slow motion, his trench coat flying behind him, he runs over the bridge to where he will soon be reunited with his Anjali (senior and junior!) Meanwhile, the song picks up speed and is about to climax. The camera movement circles Anjali making aarti (looking beautiful and feminine in a soft green sari). At this point, of course – only the viewer knows what is about to happen, but still we sit at the edge of our seat, palms sweaty and wait with bated breath.

    The song ends, and all we hear is Rahul’s footsteps as he arrives at the door and yells out, “Anjali!” (Of course there’s an echo for added effect!) The next shot frames the two Anjali’s profiles and as they hear (both) their names, they look up. The sudden change in Rahul’s facial expression just two seconds after his eyes fall on Anjali is done with Shah Rukh Khan perfection. The only sound we hear is Rahul’s breathing as he tries to catch his breath from running.

    The camera zooms into Anjali who stares at Rahul in disbelief. Looking back at him, he’s visibly shocked and in a broken voice, he manages to utter, “Hi!” Rahul’s mother takes the aarti tray from Anjali and she and Rahul start walking towards each other. And so the sad version of the title song, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ starts to play. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are magnificent in this scene, and I get goose bumps just writing about it!

    When the two finally come together there is an awkwardness of how to greet each other. Hug? Handshake? It’s clumsy and so innocent which adds to the characters vulnerability in this moment of the film. It is Rahul who catches her hand and for a few seconds they fumble around not looking straight into each other’s eyes. The next thing he says to her is, “Sari?!” Of course, the last he’d seen her was in sporting gear, trainers and short hair. And now, he stands before a beautiful woman with long dark hair in a sari. Who wouldn’t be blown away?

    WHY IT’S SO SPECIAL:
    We remember anything that we can relate to. Whether it is a song, a book or a quote. It sticks in our minds for months and years because we can identify with the message it’s trying to portray. I think one of the main reasons for KKHH’s great success was the authenticity of the characters. It appealed to people across race and generations. Whether we saw ourselves as a tomboyish Anjali or the new girl at school like Tina, or the Casanova which was Rahul, everyone who watched film took something away from it.

    How many of us have had friends of the opposite sex who were “just friends”? After a while, feelings may change but it may be too late to confess the feeling to the other person. This particular scene where Rahul and Anjali meet after years is something else many people can identify with. Don’t we often imagine what it would be like to meet people we once knew again? I often do. People who were in my life before and who I’ve lost contact with… will I ever see them again? Where will we meet? Will we shake hands or hug? Will I be standing or sitting? What will I be wearing?

    At this point in the film, both Rahul and Anjali have grown up and matured. Rahul’s a widowed father and businessman. Anjali is engaged to be married. They’ve both come a fairly long way from when they were in college. They seem to be very confident, but at this moment when they come face to face, they are unsure of what to do and what to say. I always imagine that if there was a voice over on this scene, it would be interesting – what would Rahul and Anjali be thinking? “What must I say?” “Who’s going to speak first?” “She’s gorgeous!” “Wow, he hasn’t changed a bit!”

    I don’t have a particular favourite scene from any given film. I have several, but if there’s one film that always chokes me up with tears, it’s definitely KKHH. And if any actor can provoke teary eyes in a theater, it’s Shah Rukh Khan and no one does it better. And when it comes to the best on-screen couple with amazing chemistry, no one delivers better than SRK and Kajol!

    The scene itself is shorter than I’ve described it here, but it leaves you with a bunch of emotions as you wait to see what will happen next!

  19. well as those who disagree on srk’s global appeal heres a specimen..

  20. well done Yakuza,good result.no doubt SHOLAY is on top,amazing movie.amitabh and salman on top.Amitabh is the icon of bollywood.in 25 movies amitabh have 10 movies.and all took good vote.

  21. http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/broadband/video/Movie-Promos/H0yGjr65/3/Theatrical-Trailer-Veer.html

    Salman Khans VEER Promo. Awesome Promo.

  22. hello yakuza.
    .
    1) What is exactly meant by average movie in terms of box office collections. Do the distributors just recover their money ?
    2) how is above avergae and semi hit movie different from each other?
    3) Does the producer make any loss in an average movie or its always d distributor who makes the loss?

    kats

  23. There was no doubt about being sholay on top and we can safely say that this film will remain top always.
    Inclusion of AAA seems effect of apagk, however, salman and aamir seems to be better placed than srk.

    • AAA as an effect of APKGK, i definitely don’t agree. The whole reason APKGK is a hit is because of AAA, so APKGK cannot pull up AAA.

  24. Good Job, Yakuza, i am Salman fan but cant believe its 3 movies in top 5, must be fake fans, lol.

    I told you same on NG too. Haha. Cheers.

    • I don’t these are fake fans. Sallu fans are really crazy, even if they don’t go n watch his movies in the theaters. There was a similar poll in indicine.com recently and it was posted in Sallus facebook community by the admin. So who knows? even this poll cud hv been posted in some community & Sallu’s fans wud hv voted for his movies in large numbers 😀

  25. salman has 1 advantages over others……salman is superstar 4 his movies n for wat he is …….

  26. u all will keep crying srk is gud actor…amir is better actor…akki is best actor………remember one thng”ACTORS DIE BUT STAR(SALMAN) NEVER DIES…….

  27. for those who think that this site is not a biased site againt shahrukh khan, just watch the 8 posters tha were put by yakuza that shows eight of the top ten movies but none aamir, salman and amithab movies. but none of SRK movies that were vote, wich confirms that this blog is second version of the SATYAM SHIT, SHAME ON YOU

    • Lolzz, Now don’t make me laugh by saying that with posters you decide who is biased who is not ?
      And what about articles that are biased towards SRK ? Like Teen patti VS MNIK ?? What about article “No wish for aladin” that was way before release of aladin ?
      What about articles of DON (2006) , that was in fovour of movie ?

      Commo’n MAN .. can you please name me any one site which you think is not accused of biasedness blame ? problem is that you want to take side of your star only and don’t want any importance given to other stars, grow up man .. Lolzzz

  28. for those who think that this site is not a biased site againt shahrukh khan, just watch the 8 posters tha were put by yakuza that shows eight of the top ten movies of aamir, salman and amithab movies but none of SRK movies that were voted, wich confirms that this blog is second version of the SATYAM SHIT, SHAME ON YOU

      Ye lo phir … 🙂

      However if putting more than once, your comment prove true, then i should spam this comment to 100 – 200 times ?? nonsense ….

  29. i repeated it because of some orthograph mistakes nothing more, but i was suggesting that yakusa should have put the posters of DDLG and KKHH if he has some degree of honesty, just to show some respect for the pools results and for the persons who had voted for them
