A letter to Univercell Vijay Awards Team
Vijay Awards tasted a phenomenal success in its
fourth edition. The event was organized and executed
in a grand manner.
One really has to congratulate the Vijay Awards
Team not just for the manner in which the event
was executed but for staging honesty in selecting
the probable and winners.
When an actor of Prakash Raj’s caliber could
speak his heart out in a function like this then
you can definitely take a lot of credit for your
People will certainly have no questions (or if
very few) questions in terms of awarding the best.
But I am writing here to give a suggestion to
add another category to honor one of the true
pillars of Tamil cinema.
Yes, an Award for the Best Producer of the Year.
|You can say
that there is a category named “Best Film of the
Year” where the producers and few star casts are
called to the stage and honored. But how much credit a
producer takes from it?
Yes it is a debatable one but I firmly believe Best Film
should be considered as credit to team effort than just
to producers and a separate award to Producers would be
a fair one than just holding the award for the best film.
Sometime I feel producers are just been treated as financiers
by Media and Fans.
Money is not just an answer for their sleepless nights
and if we could honor their efforts by bring them to limelight
then I believe Tamil Cinema will head in a better path
than the current one.
If there is room for producers in Favorite Awards as well
as Jury Awards category then one can really feel that
their efforts are been recognized.
One doesn’t need to get the award but if a producer
sees his name in the probable list and feels that his
name and efforts are been debated by fans and jury members
then definitely he will breathe a lot easier and this
will boost and motivate him.
And I have another suggestion too, rather than suggestion
I just put it as a question, how would it be if Univercell
Vijay Awards could grant “Chevalier Sivaji Ganesan
Award for Excellence in Indian Cinema” to a producer
in its fifth edition?
