The Best of 2006, according to moi

Movie : The Departed, undoubtedly. Martin Scorsese's Cops-and-robbers drama not only stunned, but also made a lasting impression. Truly, there is no dierctor who can do a better job of blurring the line between good and evil. Also, Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon and Leonardo di Caprio formed one of the most potent acting combos ever. In short, the best ever Scorsese movie. And for this reason, Scorsese is also the Best Director of the year.

When I was your age they used to say you could become cops or criminals. What I'm saying to you is this... When you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?

Song : Masti Ki Paathshala. A.R Rahman and Prasoon Joshi get together for Rang De Basanti an give a great album, but the track that stands out is this, purely because the title of the song is something that every fun loving person (young or old) would relate to. Of course, the lyrics dont make much sense, but the dance moves in the song make sure that you have a good time anyways.

Actor : This one's a tie between Arshad Warsi for the Munnabhai movie and Leo Di Caprio for The Departed. Bot these actors could have hammed away to glory, considering the roles they had to play. But Warsi, as the lovable sidekick Circuit, and Di Caprio as Billy Costigan, the gangster who's actually a cop, exercise remarkable restraint, and in the process give their best performances ever.

Actress : I just cannot think of any woman artiste who's made an impression this year. Sorry.

Sporting Spectacle : Sreesanth. India vs SA. Down the pitch. Bat in air. Pelvic thrusts. The new age Indian cricketer has arrived. Not only does he take shit, he also dishes out some. Watch here.
