September 28, 2009

The jury of the Tamil Nadu state government awards is at work deciding the best of 2007 and 2008. It is going to be quite a tough job considering the quality of movies during that period. But, the first award has been decided and interestingly it has gone to the person who can be referred to as the First Citizen of the state.

Yes, the jury has decided upon the award for the Best Scriptwriter and the recipient is Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi for Uliyin Osai. If you remember, Uliyin Osai starred Vineeth and Keerthi Chawla. It was a period subject which narrated a story holding a message about true love and commitment.

This is definitely a first in Indian cinema, a Chief Minister receiving an award. The CM might also possibly the eldest person to be chosen for the award. Goes to show that age is just a number.
