The top winner was Anurag Basu's comedy-romance Barfi! with ten awards. Its wins included the top prizes of Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Ranbir Kapoor) and Best Actress (Priyanka Chopra).
The Critics' prize for Best Film went to the crime family drama Gangs of वासेपुर (Gangs Of Wasseypur). It also won for Best Dialogue.
अग्निपथ (Agneepath/Path of Fire) was the winner of four awards. Shoojit Sircar's विकी डोनर (Vicky Donor) picked up three acting awards, which went to Annu Kapoor, Dolly Ahluwalia and Ayushman Khurrana. कहानी (Kahaani/Story) by Sujoy Ghosh also won three for Best Editing, Best Screenplay and – appropriately enough – Best Story.
Christy Clark announced the inaugural Times of India Film Awards to much fanfare in January, but then it was revealed that they had earlier tried to get the International Indian Film Academy Awards for Vancouver on the condition that it move from June to April, before the May election. The IIFA refused, so they opted to create this new awards show instead. There was also a leak of their controversial ethnic outreach plan – one similar to the one employed by the federal Conservatives (in British Columbia, the "Liberal Party" is actually Conservative just like it is in Quebec). The election takes place on May 14.
