The Government of India announced the 64th National Film Awards today and there were a lot of happy faces in the South Indian film industry. Telugu film Pellichoopulu won the Best Feature Film Award while Joker won in Tamil in the same category. Peter Heins was awarded with Best Stunt Choreography for Mohanlal starrer Pulimurugan. Mohanlal received another special award – Special Jury award, for not just one but three movies Pulimurugan, Janatha Garage and Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol.
Janatha Garage is a blockbuster in Telugu which starred Jr NTR and Mohanlal is prominent roles. Mohanlal was portrayed in an intense role in the action flick which also saw Jr NTR play a very power packed role. Pulimurugan is one of the best movies the audience witnessed in the recent past. The stunts in the film were of highest quality and Peter Heins received a lot of accolades for his contribution. Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol is another film for which Mohanlal was rewarded. The film was applauded for its narration and subtle story. Mohanlal essayed the role of a common man who gets bored of his daily routine and tries something different. This results in a series of incidents and how he comes over them forms the crux of the story.
Mohanlal has been a bigger star in Malayalam with Janatha Garage in Telugu and Special Jury Award for all the three movies, he has now expanded his empire beyond Malayalam. We congratulate the Ultimate Star and wish him that his realm is beyond Indian cinema, and reach global cinema.
