#twifibang meet for @twi_fi_awards

Come Saturday and We the Tweeple had our Twi-Fi meet at Cafe Matteo in Bangalore.
This event was for all the movie buffs, who sleep  and walk  and eat  movies. 
To be more precise Bollywood movies :) 
The famous Filmfare awards were never good enough for good movies and it was a way popular by the section of few handfuls. I always wanted to stop these awards going into hands of Shahrukh Khan or Kajol, as it turned out to be true again with Filmfare 2011. Good movies always loose the popular whistles and claps, as they don't have the content for front benchers. 
Somehow Filmfare's will identify the real good movies and award them with Critics Award.
An irony for non-critics.
They have awards like Best Debut (Male), as if its a Doodh-Bhaat (easy cakewalk) for the first release of Star-sons or launched via big production house. Why a movie like Antardwand and LSD has to suffer on this front. When their actors can give a money run to Hritik Or SRK in terms of sheer acting.
The joy of watching good actors are limited in small movies like Phas Gaya re Obama or Udaan. 
All these grunts were satisfied when I first heard of an award, which is not for Popular category neither of some selected jury.
It was indeed , "Of the Tweeple, For the Tweeple, By the Tweeple, for the Most Deserving in Hindi Cinema".
The discussion was healthy and over a broad ranges from technical to not so popular awards.
The debate was on some awards like Best comedian, Best villain and was felt that they need to be scrapped because we don't have awards for Best gray character, best normal actor, Best dramatic actor, Best intense actor and so on .. so why the fuss over Best comedian or villan. If you are an actor you need to compete with all at once.
Also to give a platform for Short films.

The discussions were lovely over the Kappa and the whole environment was noisy as if it's out of the Drum.
Its good to be a part of bollywood bloggers and celebrity like Anurag Kashyap, Raja Sen,Mallika Sherawat, Gul Panag, Rajiv Masand......
Its good to support a fair, transparent and democratic cause for our bollywood...
I enjoyed being a part of the new Twivolution......
