National Award...

This year National Award has been announced and very saddening & frustrating not to find Manirathnam’s AE, Balaji Shaktivel’s Kadhal.Kamal’s Virumandi. Both of these movies are known for their best screenplay and Photography.
To everybody’s surprise, Swades bagged Best Cinematography award. Mahesh Aney has done a good job in the movie and few scenes to mention are title opening, “Yuhee Chala Chal raahee” Song, Farmer Portraying his Sad Story. But can anybody forget Ravi.K.Chandran’s amazing work in AE/Yuva/Black, Thiru’s Work in Virumaandi,Sriram’s Work in Vaanam Vasapadum, Manikandan’s Mein Hoon Naa.
Congrats to Cheran and him team as his Autography was recognized.
Chitra did a genial job in "Ovvaroo Pookalumae".
Saif Ali Khan beat other contenders such as Shahrukh Khan (Swades), Vijay Raaz (Hari Om) and Subodhro (Krantikaal) to win the Best Actor Award for his role in the frothy romantic comedy `Hum Tum'. That was a OK kind of movie with lot of artificial flavor of love spilled all over the movie. Chairman of the Jury for Feature Films, Sudhir Mishra, defended the choice of Saif, saying, "Shahrukh in Swades was not a bad performance. There were other performances also which were good. But here is an actor who is approaching a role in a different way." Saif can’t compete with Kamalhaasan’s Virumaandi’s Action or atleast Shahrukhan’s Most Acclaimed Nasa Scientist role Mr.Bhargav in Swades. Jury team oldies have to be totally whacked for not even listing Kamalhaasan in contenders list.

BTB, Have anybody seen Madhu Bhandarkar's Page3 ?
