Vanitha Film Awards are one of the most sacred for Malayalam film industry and audience who subscribe to this language of cinema. Being one of the most prestigious awards, they select their films very carefully and it must be a difficult task because Malayalam right now is one of the most profound industry in the world. Most of the films that get churn out very week meet good reviews and a classic a month is not at all a bad ratio to have for an industry who don’t make too many films like Hindi or Hollywood.
best director of the year awards went to Dileesh Pothen for his brilliant film Thondimuthalam Driksakshiyum. This film is certainly one of the most well reviewed film of the year and audience also gave it a thumbs up, which made it to do wonders on the box office despite of being an indie. Fahadh Faasil took home the best actor award for Thondimuthalam Driksakshiyum as it is being called as best performance of his already elaborated career so far. Faahadh has got more cult films in his bag than most of stars who are working for more than 20 years.
Take Off very well deserved the award for Best Film as it must have been a difficult film making procedure to pull all that adrenaline. Salman Khan’s career biggest blockbuster Tiger Zinda Hai echoes this film on a very basic plot level and a further more in the treatment, which raised a lot of eye brows in the country as to if they have straight up copied the film. Best actress award was given to Manju Warrier for udaharanam Sujatha and Parva for Take off, as one can imagine it must have been gut wrenching to prefer one over the year. Dulquer Salman took home the award for popular actor for his brilliant ‘Solo’.
