While Dev Anand, 12 years his senior, has been named the winner of the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award for the year 2002, it is obvious that the honour has come to the Mumbai industry's evergreen hero two decades too late, almost as an afterthought.
The Dadasaheb Phalke Award could serve to retrieve Dev Anand's glory days from the industry's fading memory bank and place it right back in the spotlight.
By finally opting for Dev Anand, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award committee has clearly looked beyond the slightness of his recent films and recognised the range and quality of the films he starred in or directed prior to the 1980s.

 Does Suchitra need the Phalke? : HindustanTimes.com
All the women on the Phalke roster are exceptional achievers in their own right, but with the exception of Lata Mangeshkar, none can claim to have soared to the sort of heights that Suchitra Sen did during her heydays.
Though Suchitra deserves the Phalke Award as richly as anybody else, it would only be in the fitness of things if she were to choose to turn her back on it.
And two, a Phalke Award for her would be an incomplete and much-delayed act of recognition given the fact that Uttam Kumar, whose name inevitably crops up every time one mentions Suchitra Sen, never won Indian cinema's top honour.
