National Film Awards 2010 - a review

Sorry for being late; At this point, I decided to write my opinion about the national film awards announced recently, only after a friend of mine who is residing outside Kerala called up and asked about my views. As every year, this time also you have got controversies regarding the awards, especially in the case of best film, best actor, best children film and also for the issue that the maximum awards has been given to films produced by the mega corporate banner, Reliance.

Amitabh Bachan has received the best actor award for his performance in 'Paa'. He did the role of a school boy suffering from Progeria disease. He did well by taking a great effort and it is also a fact that his emotions has been covered up by the extra ordinary make up. Bachan's competitor for the same category, Mammootty, who gave a variety of performances in movies like 'Paleri Manikyam', 'Pazhassi Raja', 'Loud Speaker and 'Kutti Sraank', should have been considered. It would have been good if the the award might have been shared between the two. They can ignore him only for the reason that he has already received three (now Bachan, Kamal and Mammootty are the top runners with equal number of awards).

'Kutty Sraank' received the best film, best director, best script,
best cinematography and best costumes awards. The award given to Anjali Shukla is an inspiration for more women to come to the cinematography field. Though costumer Jayan's work won't be so hectic compared to Sai in 'Pazhassiraja', as the theme of 'Kutty Sraank' deals with three stages where a variety of dresses are required, the award given to him can also be accepted

I cannot agree any of the other awards given to 'Kutty Sraank'. The reason is simple, there are many unknown facts in the execution of the movie, more over the presentation is also boring. If watched by a group of 100, only two or three might understand and love such attempts, please excuse me for joining the majority who are not. Renjith ('Paleri Manikyam'), Hariharan ('Pazhassi Raja'), Paandiraj ('Pasanga') and Samudrakkani ('Nadodikal') were more eligible for the best director category when compared to Shaji N.Karun. The award for script given to P.F.Mathews and Harikrishnan ('Kutti Sraank') cannot be compared with the excellent efforts of Renjith, Paandiraaj, Samudrakkani, Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijit Joshi ('3 Idiots') or even Rakesh Omprakash Mehra ('Delhi 6').

The aw
ard given to the best popular film for '3 Idiots' will not be opposed by any one. 'Delhi 6', which bagged the best film with national integration was also not a wrong choice. International figure Resool Pookkutty should receive the recognition for his effort in 'Pazhassi Raja'. I told in my review part itself about the extra ordinary work of Ilayaraja on the music side in 'Pazhassi Raja', anyway it is good to see that he received one, at least for the bg score. Baby Asna, who acted in 'Kelkkunnundo' directed by Geethu Mohandas has got the best child artist award, which is also an unique choice. Special jury awards given for Padmapriya and Sreekar Prasad (editor) are not questionable as both are talented in their areas.

The comments are not given for the other awards on different categories, as I have not seen most of the films mentioned there.
