TN Film Awards- Better Late Than Never

The Tamilnadu Government has announced the state awards for 2003 and 2004. I don’t see the logic behind releasing 2003 state awards in the first quarter of 2006. Although I didn’t spend much time reading through the awards list, I just decided to focus on one category – Best Music Director. Srikanth Deva has been chosen as the Best Music Director for 2004. A little bit of research would reveal that he has bagged the award for the hit movie M Kumaran S/o Mahalakshmi. Although the songs of MKSOM were a hit, there are much better choices for the Best Music Director award. I would have been pleased if one of the following three had bagged the award:

Bharadwaj for Autograph
Yuvan Shankar Raja for Manmadhan / 7/G Rainbow Colony
ARR for Aayutha Ezhuthu / Kangala Kaithu Sei / New

At the end of the day, awards are being determined largely by recommendations and political affiliations. It would have been more appropriate if they had given some award like Best Upcoming Music Director to Srikanth Deva.

  • It is nothing but politics... I have totally lost hope in the state govt awards...
    Here's an instance... A.R.Rahman won the NATIONAL AWARD for Kannathil Muthamittaal... the state govt award for the same year went to Sirpi for some stupid Movie... what more can be said about the state govt awards....

  • Two things:

    1. 7G Rainbow Colony and Kangalal Kaidhu Sei are VERY underrated.

    2. What the DUCK is the State Govt doing dabbling in movie awards anyway...wasteful exercise..

  • Not surprising considering the times that we live in. Mediocrity is rewarded in the name of nurturing new talent. That Srikanth Deva chap is a pathetic music composer.

  • @Vikram,
    You are bang on

    @Aravind,
    If this continues establish MD's like ARR, HJ and Vidyasagar should shun the State awards

    @Shrik,
    KKS might be a bit underrated, but not 7/G RC.

    @KG,
    very true.
