    Did you see the movie Swades my any chance mate? It is one of the few movies in which Shahrukh Khan cuts out his Shahrukh Khan mannerisms and does an excellent job. I am certain that he is not one dimensional at all - he just does it because it pays off at the box office and it works.

    Nope havn't seen that one. I gave up Shah Rukh long time ago. Ever since he made that movie with Rani and Kajol ( wife-dies-he marries best friend- weird daughter angle,etc). Before that, the only Shah Rukh movie i enjoyed was DDLJ but then again, it was more to do with the storyline, songs and scenery than the acting.
    He just annoys me no end and i definitely prefer watching Amir Khan at work over Shah Rukh.
    Ayways, don't take my comments on bollywood seriously - i've watched like less than 10 bollywood movies in the last 7 years. watched one once a month or so before that for a few years but mostly oldies.

    swades was a good movie! AND SRK was brilliant! I agree with pratyush on that! I think that SRK is actually a good actor but some roles dont suit him....like DON for example...he wasnt too bad, but a complete minor when compared to the big B!

    Dhoom, by a mile.

    That's your opinion on Dilip Kumar, and I can respect it, but I think it's stretching it to say he was "certainly" not as good as Ashok Kumar and Raj Kapoor. I rate him to be better than both (and better than Guru Dutt and Dev Anand from that era). I think you'll find plenty of people that share my opinion.

    Btw who else here thinks Kajol is not in the slightest attractive. I swear actresses are supposed to have two eyebrows.

    Also, who's seen Lagey Raho Munna Bhai. I thought nothing could top MBBS but this was a good laugh. Arshad Warsi is a genious as Circuit.

    Dev Anand i can see, Guru Dutt i havnt watched or heard of much so i dunno but Ashok Kumar and Raj Kapoor are usually rated the best pure actors of hindi movie scene and imo, the only ones in their ranks are Nana Patekar, Kamal Hassan, Sanjeev Kumar, Shashi Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

    I think exactly the opposite actually - Kajol is super attractive.
    She has the attributes that i call 'real woman'. She's not slim but she isn't fat (my type), she's got very expressive eyes and her face isnt plucked and manicured to look like a fashion project from Gothica or something. Always liked the 'natural' look of actresses like Kajol, Helen Hunt, Madhuri, etc etc.
    I just hate the way 99.99% people look in hollywood movies because it isnt natural look and i don't know why people get so excited about that which is so unnatural.

    As an actor Dilip Kumar was miles ahead of RajKapoor and definately better than Ashok Kumar. C_C's suggestion is laughable at best.

    And Dilip isn't ? Common I have never known anyone(other than you) that rates RajKapoor/Ashok Kumar better actors than Dilip Kumar. Of the list you mentioned, only Sanjeev Kumar is better than him.

    I haven't seen many movies featuring Dilip, Ashok Kumar, and Raj Kapoor, but this certainly is the first time I have anyone say that those two were better than Dilip. And Shashi?

    Yeah, not trying to disrespect CC's opinion, but I was very surprised that he rated Ashok Kumar and Raj Kapoor as "certainly" better. Much like Brando did for Hollywood, Dilip popularized the concept of "method acting" in Bollywood. Not saying he was the first or the only actor to do it, just that he had such success with it that it became popular. I've seen films of that era, and Dilip's acting stands out above the rest IMO. Devdas, Deedar, Gunga Jumna, Ram Aur Shyam display his acting talent abundantly. Even in the only "head to head" matchup he had with Raj Kapoor in Andaaz he comes out ahead. His later day films are not bad either. His performance in "Shakti" is one of my all time favorites (along with Amitabh's).
