It is indeed a proud moment for all Keralites as well as for the whole Malayalam industry. Sura Venjaramoodu, who rose to fame with his comedy roles in movies and with the Trivandrum slang, has won the National Award for Best Actor. He shares this award with yet another actor Raj Kumar. Also, North 24 Kaatham wins the Best Malayalam film.
Yes, Suraj has made it happen. With his outstanding performance
in the movie Perariyathavar, he bagged the
National Award for the Best Actor for the year. He said that he
dedicate this award to all the Malayalis and the Malayalam
industry. Earlier, comedian Salim Kumar too bagged the same award
for his yet another brilliant performance for the film
Aadaminte Makan Abu.
Perariyathavar was directed by Dr Biju and Suraj played
the role of a sweeper in the film. It was a de-glam role and it
mainly focussed on the difficulties faced by the marginalised
people in the society.
Indrans had also played a pivotal role in the film. This is
Suraj's first National Award. Now, this has proved once again that
the Malayalam industry is indeed blessed with having many profound
actors who have extreme range in acting.
Also, Dr Biju directed movie Perariyathavar wins the
National Award for Best Environmental film. Malayali actress and
director Geethu Mohandas' husband and cinematographer Rajeev Ravi
bags the Best Cinematographer of her directed film Liars
Dice. Best Actress Geethanjali Thapa too wins National Award
for Best Actress for Liars Dice. Shaji N Karun's Swapaanam
too bags a National Award.
