The decision to snub these cinematic masterpieces from the Southern region of India left many enthusiasts and critics alike dissatisfied with the outcome.

Allu Arjun secured the distinction of being the first actor from the Telugu-language film industry to clinch the prestigious Best Actor award at the National Film Awards. However, it was an otherwise disappointing showing for films from the South industries. He secured the Best Actor accolade for his remarkable portrayal in the blockbuster movie “Pushpa: The Rise.” 

The eagerly anticipated National Film Awards unveiling took place in New Delhi, revealing Rocketry: The Nambi Effect as the recipient of the esteemed Best Feature Film accolade.

Notable Awardees 

The Best Actress Award was shared between two exceptional actresses, Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon, honored for their stellar performances in “Gangubai Kathiawadi” and “Mimi,” respectively. These awards, celebrating the finest contributions of Indian cinema in 2021, arrived after a delay of a couple of years due to the pandemic’s impact on the industry.

Unnoticed Achievements

In 2021, many movies from the South were very popular. People could easily watch these movies on streaming platforms all over India. Dhanush did a great job in the Tamil movie “Karnan,” and Fahadh Faasil was praised for his acting in the Malayalam films “Joji” and “Malik.”

Despite the thriller movie “Nayattu” winning the esteemed Best Original Screenplay award, it was observed that the three main actors, Kunchako Boban, Joju George, and Nimisha Sajayan, didn’t receive recognition for their roles. Speaking of Nimisha Sajayan, her highly praised performance in “The Great Indian Kitchen” also didn’t catch the attention of the jury, which was led by filmmaker Ketan Mehta. G Suresh Kumar, a producer of Malayalam films and a jury member, disclosed in an interview with Asianet News that eight Malayalam-language films successfully reached the final consideration stage.

The notable Telugu blockbuster “RRR” appeared to have been overlooked in the prominent categories; however, it managed to secure recognition in technical fields and was designated as the Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. Meanwhile, Tamil contenders like “Jai Bhim,” “Sarpatta Parambarai,” and “Master” left the awards ceremony without any wins. Social media platform Twitter buzzed with various reactions about the Southern films facing neglect at this edition of the National Film Awards.
