Barfi! Kahaani were unusual subjects and yet were also commercial successes” According to Subhash Kapoor director of Jolly LLB winner of the Best Hindi Film Award the change is noticeable in the last couple of years “I think Do Dooni Chaar turned the tide in favour of mainstream cinema and that was reflected in the film winning the National Award This year we have films like Ship of Theseus Bhaag Milkha Bhaag winning the National Award and this indicates a certain kind of change which I would imagine is towards good cinema irrespective to the alternative to mainstream commercial cinema The audience who is exposed to world cinema has reacted positively to all kinds of cinema and all kinds of films are doing well at the box-office “ So is there a distinctive trend and a shift in the selection of films made in recent times Hansal Mehta who won the Best Director Award for Shahid however feels that “Film-making is beyond trend It is about expressing yourself through a story In the past five to six years there has been a greater focus on story characterisation with the result that some wonderful films across languages have been made in the country Marathi films like Fandry in particular are doing really well winning the Award” In support of independent cinema While it remains a topic of debate that mainstream Hindi films are gaining precedence edging other language films from the main category in the National Awards the general consensus is that ultimately good socially-relevant entertaining movies are being recognised However Sumitra Bhave winner of seven National Awards in the past won the Award for Best Dialogue this year for the Marathi film Astu states “I don’t know whether it is a good sign or not I cannot relate to the kind of big budget cinema in Bollywood depicting unnecessary violence On the other hand however these are interesting times and films like Rajat Kapur’s Ankhon Dekhi with a significant social statement are being made and appreciated For instance Vidya Balan is an excellent actress but I could not relate to her film The Dirty Picture for which she received the Best Actress Award It is difficult to understand that this kind of role got an acceptance at the national level But you cannot question the judgement of the jury She is a fine actress and has given some very good performances but I felt that the award that she got for Kahaani was better-deserved than the one she received for The Dirty Picture I feel there is definitely a change in the selection process and I don’t know whether it is a welcome sign or a deterioration in the choice of films” Uttang Thakur who co-produced the Marathi movie Yellow with Riteish Deshmukh won three National Awards for the film feels that most Bollywood films are big budget ventures with the main focus on earning huge profits “Very few film-makers like Rajkumar Hirani make meaningful cinema with a message to it” But irrespective of the dissent the general feeling across the industry is that whether it is mainstream Hindi cinema or films across different languages the National Awards are supportive of independent films and film-makers as reflected in the choice of the films selected this year Film-maker Saeed Mirza who headed the 10-member jury of the National Awards says “We could not ignore Hindi films as 80 per cent of the entries were not only entertaining but were also socially-relevant Our decision was highly supportive of independent cinema If you look at the results most of the films are made by independent film-makers for instance Miss Lovely Ship of Theseus Shahid Jolly LLB or mainstream film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag have been given their due These films had socially-relevant content and value and touched upon issues and economic problems A film like Jolly LLB discussed a very important subject and was incredibly well-made and successful” The selection process There were 390 entries vying for the coveted Award this year A screening committee consisting of five panels covering the North East West and South films were set-up Each panel consisted of five members headed by a Chairman They shifted through the initial entries from their respective regions While the North East and West zone had one panel each the South zone that had films from Tamil Telugu Malayalam and Kannada was represented by two panels It took the panels almost a month to sift through the films and discard the irrelevant ones Following the basic guidelines as mentioned by the constitution of the National Awards only those films that stood true to the parameters were sent to the Central panel for the final selection “Films like Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ramleela and Chennai Express were irrelevant and were rejected in the initial stage This year most of the awards have been given to almost 30 films that spoke about a social issue and were made by debutants A good commercial mainstream film if made well like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag or a Jolly LLB also walked away with the Award One does not mind watching such filmsThis year it can be said that all films across languages were evenly represented with regional films too taking away some of the technical awards” says MS Sathyu chairman of the East panel and also the jury of the central panel The central panel consisting of 10 members then goes through the shortlisted films “We discuss the films and the winner is ultimately selected through a voting pattern There is no casting vote of the chairman and the entire process is carried out in a democratic manner We try to be as honest as possible without being biased” explains Mirza So have there been any changes made in the selection process over the years While the basic guidelines remain the same each year the jury does send in their recommendations keeping in mind the broad parameters of the constitution Mirza explains “Every jury does have the right to recommend changes in terms of selection procedures But these are recommendations made keeping in mind the basic manifesto The Directorate of Film Festivals may then accept these suggestions at their own discretion” So while some films walk away with the accolades a few do not make it to the final count “But then that’s the way it is some win some lose” signs off Mirza List of winners Best Feature Film: Ship of Theseus (English-Hindi) Indira Gandhi Award For Best Debut Film Of A Director:
