Ater what seems like a phenomenally long wait, the winners of the 66th National Film Awards have been announced. While normally, the recipients of the National Film Awards are announced in April and the presentation takes place on May 3 every year, it was delayed this time owing to the Lok Sabha polls.
The awards were announced today with Vicky Kaushal’s Uri bagging four awards. Keerthy Suresh was declared Best Actress at the 66th National Film Awards for her terrific performance in Telugu film Mahanati. The film, based on the life of actress Savitri, garnered much appreciation and love for Suresh, who brought alive the iconic star with such grace and exuberance.
Meanwhile, Best Actor award was shared by Ayushmann Khurrana (AndhaDhun) and Vicky Kaushal (Uri: The Surgical Strike). Best Director award went to Uri director Aditya Dhar. Uri also bagged two other awards—best background music and best sound design. KGF also won the national award in best action film category.
Meanwhile Tamil cinema fans are very much disappointed as Baram is the only Tamil film which won national award for the best tamil film category. Fans are expressing their disappointment in social media platforms as films such as Vada Chennai, Merku Thodarchi Malai, Pariyerum Perumal are not considered by the juries.

மூன்றுமே தேசிய விருதுக்கு தகுதியானவை.

In my humble opinion, @am_kathir deserved the #NationalFilmAwards for Best Actor – #PariyerumPerumal. He just surprised one and all with his acting display in the film. It was a revelation👌 The jury must’ve encouraged a youngster and given it to him. But, did they even see PP?

Was just arguing with me friend. If not for a combination of reasons, #2Point0 would have had a bigger impact among audience.
For special effects, this film deserved a national award 😠

I am sure that These four Films have not been watched by the National Award Jury.
Biggest Snubs this year and in the last 5 years.
