Whats-in-a-name movie of the year: Padmashree Laloo Prasad Yadav - its rumored that Laloo really wanted to make the movie tax free and even advised schools to take the young students to an excursion for this movie as he had a guest role but thankfuly better sense prevailed in the end.

"So-we-are-supposed-to-actually-act?" couple of the year: Zayed Khan and Aishwarya Rai in Shabd

Movies to watch out in 2006

# Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna - just curious to see how more downhill can KJ go ?

# Rang De Basanti - Rakesh Mehra's next after that promising but enigmatic opener Aks

# Fanaah - Kashmir, Aamir and trying to guess 'inspirations' should make this one a fun watch

# Munnabhai meets Mahatma - will the sequel be as good as the original ?

# Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next whether it is Bajirao Mastani or Saawariya
