Some Probabales

Kadhal, Autograph, Virumandi are Strong contenders for "Best Regional film" in Tamil

There were ofcourse some innovative screenplays in Tamil films which may bag "Best Screenplay Award" in national level. But again it is doubtful because all these screenplays though innovative has got its own flaws. They are Kudaikkul Mazhai, Ayutha Ezuthu and Virumandi.

I don't think there is any great music in Tamil last year to bag the coveted "Best Music Director" award. But we have A.R.Rahman as a strong contender not for a tamil movie but for a hindi film "Swades". Also if they give some importance for classical music, even Vidhyasagar may win the award for his music in the telugu movie "Swarabhisekam" directed by K.Vishwanath. I would say that this album is Vidhyasagar's best effort of the last decade. Actually Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is also there in my list with "Lakshya" which has far far better music than KHNH. Debojyoti Mishra music for "Raincoat" is another noteworthy piece of work. I can't say much about Malayalam music as i am not fully into it. Let the jury, not disappoint us by giving the award to "Late Madan Mohan" for Veer-Zaara. Still there may be extraordinary work in music which i haven't come across. Anyway, let us wait and watch.

There is definitely no chance of "Best Lyricist Award" for any tamil lyrics but yet I feel "Ovvoru Pookalumae" by Pa. Vijay is a good one with encouraging lines. But i think this time this award will go to for some Hindi Lyricist. Let us see whether Javed Akthar will equal the record set by Vairamuthu by winning the Fifth national award this year.

Best Cinematography - Santosh Sivan (Meenaxi), Christopher Pop (Lakshya), Rajiv Menon (Morning Raga), Ravi K.Chandran (Yuva).

"Phir Milenge" may bag some award in "Best film that brings social awareness" or something like that.

Okay, that is all for now... let us wait for the announcement

Suresh,
Virumaandi participated in last year's competition. So it cannot contend this year.
