Vote on talent - Not what the media manipulates you into thinking. I think people need to form and express their own opinions in reference to Bollywood movies, actors, musicians etc. I mean come on people! Get a grip! So what if Dagangg did well at the box office. So did Golmaal 2 & 3, but that doesn't make them the best movies of the year. Give Guzaarish, My Name is Khan and Kites the respect they deserve in terms of delivering excellent performances and for bringing something new and exciting to Indian cinema. The Indian audience is so quick to judge and criticize their own people so harshly. For God's sake chill out and allow yourself to be entertained!
