Charlie not to be a part of 63rd National Film Awards race

A disappointing news for Malayalam film lovers had come as Charlie, directed by Martin Prakkat and starred by Dulquer Salmaan is not taking part in the national award race. The film which had won the most number of State film award is not a part of National Award selection as per reports. The reports says that it was because the team behind the film had not submitted the film for the national award selection process before the last date of receiving submission. They thought that a film can be submitted before the jury of national award selection only after the declaration of state awards. So they waited to declare the state awards and the time was over.

They tried their best later contacting many people for an exemption. But nothing materialized. The film had got 8 awards in state film awards such as best actor, actress, director, script writer, art director, camera man, costume designer etc. Now, the team behind the film is in big disappointment as they missed the chance to compete in the National award race.

35 films were sent to compete in the National Film Awards this time and that is a record. Out of which, 10 had reached the final round as well. There is some allegations that many Malayalam films were selected even after submitted too late. Then why Charlie is not selected giving an exemption based on its merit or considering it as the state award winning film..? That is the question now going all around. Charlie is one of the best technically perfect film made in Mollywood as well and denying a chance for the film to compete in National level is very disappointing.

Unni R and Martin Prakkat had together written the screenplay of this film which was a big box office success as well. The flick had reached the screens on last Christmas season and done a very good business along with the appreciation from critics and audience. The performance of Dulquar Salaman in this film is said to be his career best one too.
