First and last National Award winning films .. Collection record
The first and last two films to win a National Award are the films that have made Tamil cinema look back today.
Mountaineers: 1954 s. M. Malai Kallan, directed by Sriramulu Naidu, is the first award winning film starring MGR and Panumathi. The film received the National Award, the highest award of the Government of Tamil Nadu.
The film was first produced in 6 languages. It ran for almost 150 days and made history. The highest grossing film of the time was The Mountain Thieves. During that time, the film grossed about 90 lakh rupees.
Therefore, it is noteworthy that this is the first film to win a Republican award and the verse written by Karunanidhi before this film would have added more strength to the film and left the theater in awe.
Monster: Dhanush, Manju Warrior, Ken Karunas and Ammu Abirami will play the lead roles in this film which was released in the Vetrimaran movement in 2019. Sagittarius, who excelled in the monster film, also earned the title of National Best Actor. The film won a National Award.
Dhanush’s performance in this film was very impressive. Likewise the lines written for that character looked even better for this film. The film is based on the novel Vekkai by Boomani.
Thus it is now surprising to see that the 2019 monster film has won the National Award only 65 years after the 1954 Mountain Burglar film won the National Award.
