“The National Film Award itself has become a joke” – Adoor Gopalakrishnan Chatal


‘National Film Awards has become a cruel joke. People who don’t watch movies and don’t know about the movie give awards. Director Adoor Gopalakrishnan said that the judges are people from Bollywood.

John Abraham Memorial Awards organized by Federation of Film Societies of India in Kozhikode. Director Adoor Gopala Krishnan, who participated in the event, said, “In the past, the judges of the National Awards were well-known directors, artists and critics. Now unknown referees are performing this joke.

It is not known what the criteria is for the award films. There are no great films in their list. Awards are given only for blockbuster films. You should not ask why and why. Everyone knows why. All I can say is that this is a great injustice. Efforts are being made to exclude Kerala from all sectors.

Many people consider cinema as a form of entertainment. Actually cinema is an art form. The judges on the National Awards panel are mostly from Bollywood. There was a former Union minister who proudly claimed that a popular Bollywood star picked up his phone call.

On the other hand, a friend of mine in Delhi said that the judges get tired after seeing just two films. People who don’t watch movies or don’t know anything about movies give awards out of respect,” he said.
