52nd Filmfare Awards Nomination - 2007 - IV

For the Filmfare Awards for Best Lyrics, the nominations are:

Gulzar (Beedi Jalaile - Omkara) – Definitely one of the strong contenders. Although it almost passes off as a item number, from his television interviews (during the promotions of Omkara, I have heard that Gulzar Saab actually tried to capture the essence of Uttar Pradesh and the political set up in the film into the lyrics of this song. Of course, not that I could understand that. But it’s come from the horse’s mouth.

Javed Akhtar (Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna) – Javed Akhtar, inspite being one of the leading lyricists in the Hindi film industry, I feel that he stands no chance to win for this song.

Javed Akhtar (Mitwa - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna) – No chance for this song as well. However, going by the popularity, this song stands a decent chance.

Prasoon Joshi (Chand Sifarish - Fanaa) – Prasoon Joshi is definitely one of the more recent lyricist in the Hindi film industry and is one of the more sought after lyricists around. This song is one of my personal favourites and it does have an outside chance. However, going by the popularity, this song stands a better chance.

Prasoon Joshi (Rubaroo - Rang De Basanti) – It’s a no brainer. This one’s my favourite song and is one of the best contenders for this award. I hope this song wins. However, going by the popularity, there are good chances that this song would not win. But I still want this song to win.
