Regional cinema eclipses B'wood at 65th National Film Awards

The wait to hear the best films of 2017 is finally over. She also won the best actress award in Goa past year for the International Film Festival in India for the film.

Had the screenplay of Mom not been in awe of Sridevi's off-screen persona (that of a "complete actor") it had the potential to become a far greater cinematic experience. But director Shekhar Kapoor was not happy with this announcement.

Thondimuthalam Driksakshiyum won the Best Malayalam Film Award, and the award for the Best Screenplay (Sajeev Pazhoor).

As the compassionate helper Shabbo in "Veer-Zaara" or as the lower-caste Jalebi in "Delhi-6", Divya has proved her versatility time and again with strong roles. While Vinod Khanna won the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, Sridevi received Best Actress for her last film Mom. "Water Baby" directed by Pia Shah, won the Best Debut Film of a Director in the Non Feature Film category.

The 65 edition of the National Film Awards will be announced on Friday and the Malayalam film industry is in high hopes. Bengali film director, who earned fame through his Hindi film, Pink, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury is also one of the members of the panel, other than Ranjit Das, Rajesh Mapuskar, Tripurari Sharma and Rumi Jaffrey.

The film dealt with a "sensitive subject", not something that we get to see in mainstream films, he said. I wish she was here. It's a very special moment for all of us. "My director and co-actors made it so easy for me to act in this film". The statement was signed by Sridevi's immediately family which includes her husband Boney Kapoor and her two daughters, Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor. In fact, her first major film award, the Kerala State Film Award, was bestowed upon her as a child artist for the Malayalam film Poompatta (1971).

Baahubali: The Conclusion bagged several awards, including Best Action Direction, Best Special Effects and Best Popular Film.
