    Still from Mizhikal Sakshi
    Veteran actress Sukumari, who has delivered an exceptional performance in her recent release Mizhikal Sakshi, has won the P.S. John award instituted by the Ernakulam Press Club. The award consists of a purse of Rs. 10,001, citation and plaque.

    Antony John, President of the Press Club, said that senior Tamil actor Manorama will present the award at a function to be held at Bharat Tourist Home at 3.30 p.m. on June 26. Sukumari won the award for her outstanding contributions to the Malayalam film industry. It is 52 years since Sukumari entered the industry with the Tamil film, Oar Iravu, as a 10-year old child.

    Earlier recipients of the award include C.K. Chandrappan, E.M.S. Namboodiripad, E. Sreedharan, V.J. Kurian, K. Kasturi Rangan, Ammanoor Madhavachakyar, P.K. Warrier, Anju George, V.S. Achuthanandan, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, and K.R. Gowriamma.

    Talking about Mizhikal Sakshi in which she plays the role of a dumb mother, Sukumari said at a meeting organized with the Mizhikal Sakshi team at the Press Club in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday: "This is a small film released amid the sound and fury of big films. Ladies should come and see the film. The media should help us." Sukumari said that she has not yet seen the film for fear that she 'might have messed things up'.
