Pinneyum, the Dileep-Kavya Madhavan starring Adoor
Gopalakrishnan movie was one of the top entries into the Kerala
State Film Awards 2016. But surprisingly, Pinneyum totally
failed to impress the State Award jury and failed to bag any
In a recent interview, the jury members revealed why the
Dileep-Kavya movie was sidelined at the State Film Awards 2016. The
jury remarked that, Pinneyum terribly fails to create
an impact in any aspect, despite being an Adoor Gopalakrishnan
The jury members also denied considering Kavya Madhavan for the
Best Actress award and clarified that the actress had failed to
enter the final list of contestants. Reportedly, Pinneyum
was not even considered for any of the categories.
According to the jury members, Pinneyum is the most
disappointing work of master craftsman Adoor Gopalakrishnan, who is
well-known for his making style. They feel that the movie is not
eligible to be considered for the awards.
However, jury's decision hasn't gone well with the die-hard fans
of Adoor Gopalakrishnan films, Dileep, and Kavya Madhavan. The
award results came out as a huge shock for the fans, who were
awaiting Kavya to win the Best Actress trophy.
Pinneyum, which dealt with the complex relationship of
a middle-class couple, Purushothaman Nair and Devi, had received
mixed reviews from the critics. The Adoor Gopalakrishnan movie
failed to create an impact at the box office as well.
