Twifi Awards: My Nominees (Music Awards only)


As you might know or not know, I was selected as a member of the Critics Jury for the music awards for Tweeples’ Film Awards (Twifi Awards).

For the same I was asked to send in my picks for the best music (album), best lyrics (album), best singer (male), best singer (female), and best song (overall).

While I had some problem with the idea of Best lyrics for an entire album, as I think lyrics are related more to a song than an entire album, except for a few cases, and also, most of the times an album has many lyricists while multiple composers, still, is not that common.

Anyway, I checked every film and even though I have heard most of the songs that came out this year irrespective of their banner, composer or popularity, this was a huge and difficult task.

Finally, the list of nominees that I came up with, along with the remarks I have sent to the Twifi Awards, is here. Unfortunately, the list still leaves ‘Best Lyrics’ that I wanted to select from the years words. I hope I’ll be writing on that very soon.

Here go my nominations for Twifi Music Awards:

Best Music (Album)

Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai
Anjaana Anjaani

Best Singer (Male)

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (Mast mast do nain) (Dabangg)
Shankar Mahadevan (Dhundhli dhundhli shaam hui) (Guzaarish)
Nikhil D’Souza, Neuman Pinto, Amit Trivedi (Shaam) (Aisha)
Karthik (Behne de) (Raavan)
KK (Dil kyun ye mera) (Kites)

Best Singer (Female)

Rekha (Badi dheere jali raina) (Ishqiya)
Shruti Pathak (Aas Paas Khuda Unplugged) (Anjaana Anjaani)
Sunidhi (Piya saanvra/Neeyat/Udi) (Striker/Teen Patti/Guzaarish)
Shilpa Rao (Nain Parindey) (Lafangey Parindey)
Shreya Ghoshal, Sona Mahapatra (Bahara) (I Hate Luv Storys)

Best Lyrics (Album)

Anjaana Anjaani

Best song (Overall)

Dil To Bachcha hai ji (Ishqiya)
Tujhe Bhula diya (Anjaana Anjaani)
Naav (Udaan)
Ek Udaan/Nadi mein Talab hai (Udaan)
Pee loon (OUATIM)


I want to know if there is a procedure for music jury to nominate Emerging Talent from the field of music or will Emerging Talent be decided only by the film jury. In case it’s possible, I’d like to suggest the name of Nikhil D’Souza for singing beautiful songs like Shaam, Mere Bina, Main Jiyoonga and more.

Also, I disagree with the idea of best lyrics for the entire album, but going by the requirement, I have tried my best to select albums with best lyrics overall.

Also, a small clarification, top four picks have NOT been put in order of preference, so please count all top four picks as equal. (Fifth pick, by rules, is a tie breaker only)

One more thing, in case of Sunidhi Chauhan I have put three songs as I do not know which ones may be ignored by others, but in such a scenario, I do not want her not to be nominated just because she sang equally good songs. At the same time it is not a very good idea to nominate her alone for three separate songs. Hence, the vote be considered for any one song, whichever gets the most votes in general.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity.

All the best.

And here is the message I received after submitting the nominations.

Thanks a lot! You Music Nomination Form has been submitted Succesfully! The TwiFi admin team will contact shortly.

    well, here it’s not exactly a jury. It’s just a group of jury members who are all alone on their computers and have no idea what the other member is doing. I do not even know if that’s the way actual awards go. So in some cases we need to clarify a few things so that the deserving do not lose.
