Ashokism award 2011 - Aadukalam




The Ashokism award for the best Tamil movie of 2011 goes to Aadukalam.


Directed by Vetrimaran , this Dhanush starrer has no wonder bagged 6 national awards! Shot on the background of the Rooster fights in Madurai district, the screenplay was mature and it was good to see that the director had done his homework well. G.V.Prakash scored with his catchy songs . Dhanush is arguably the best actor of the Tamil film industry today...and he proved it amply here. Congrats Vetrimaran!

Special Mention:
Alagarsamiyin kuthirai by director Suseenthiran is a short and sweet story penned by writer Bhaskar Sakthi. The novel storytelling and the breath taking locales of the western ghats had made this film enjoyable. The highlight was Ilayaraja's rerecording. The title score is a class of its own.

Other praiseworthy efforts of last year are Aranya KandamThoonga nagaram and Engeyum Eppothum.

Eniya Pongal Nalvaazthukkal!
