The six films that have been nominated for Best Picture this year are the top ones from each category. A Wednesday, starring Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher, depicts the emotions of an ordinary man in a city hit by terrorism.

Dostana, starring John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra, is billed as a hilarious comedy and speaks volumes about the change in Indian audiences over the years. One of the most talked about action thrillers of the year has been Ghajini which stars Aamir Khan. The film portrays the life of a person suffering from forced amnesia.

Jodhaa Akbar, which stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, brings to light an important but forgotten part of Indian history before colonialism. The other top films for the year are Race, starring Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor, Bipasha Basu and Akshaye Khanna, which is a suspense thriller packed with action and conspiracy; and Rock On!!, which stars Farhan Akhtar. This film is about four friends who create India's greatest rock band, but never quite make it. However, fate brings them together again years later.
