52nd Filmfare Awards - II

Before we go on to the popular awards, I thought it would be apposite to list out some of the technical awards given out at the 52nd Filmfare Awards.

These technical awards were as follows:

Best Editing Rang De Basanti – Personally, I think this is a very well deserving award. The concept of the film was very good and without taking away the credit for doing a wonderful job as an editor, I think that Rakeysh Mehra could have “edited” the last half an hour of the film to make it more genuine than “filmy”. The song “Roobaroo” has become one of my all time favourite songs and the lyrics and the setting of the song in the film very critical.

Best Special EffectsMarc Kolbe & Craig A Mumma for Krrish – The special effects for this film were a first as far as Bollywood films are concerned. However, if we have to emulate our colleagues in Hollywood, then we have a way to go. Nonetheless, it’s heartening to know that a beginning has been made with movies like Krrish and Dhoom 2.

Best Sound DesignK. J. Singh for Omkara
