2006 Awards


It is a new year and  time to bestow some awards on all those people who worked tirelessly to entertain us the last year. If not for these people, varnachitram would be hosting a blank page every day. Yes, the list is a bit nasty, then what to do. It was pretty serious stuff here for the past two weeks and we need to get silly once in a while.

  1. Hahahaha ;-).. Laughed out loud!!! Hey by the way what is this “Movie Factory Conveyor Belt Award”??? Explanation needed bro!!!

    Unnikrishnan G Nair.

  2. Thanks πŸ™‚ Kalabhavan Mani acts in so many movies one after the other like pieces coming off a conveyor belt…hence..

  3. Ha ha ha this is Malayalam cinema, we donÒ€ℒt like newcomers

    That’s not totally true. People (common man) have appreciated the talented youngsters who played the Muslim girl in Classmates and Pooja and Sarah from Notebook.

  4. Lol

    Kalabhavan Mani should also be given the Kalaignar Rajinikanth award for “Pandi”ising Kerala movie culture bigtime.

  5. this was awesome…couldnt stop laughing out here! all of it is so true. somebody should forward this to all the filmi folk and film journalists and show them how ordinary people outside the industry see them.

  6. Mammotty should get the newcomer award since he reinvented a different version of Dancing technique, after seeing it (on TV only my God!!!) my 17 year old Chennai fed son vowed not to see any mallu movie in his life time and we had to threaten him of dire consequences if he is not coming for Classmates.

  7. Downright funny.
    The Worst Wig Award strikes the nail right on the head. Wonder what made him go for a horrendous hairdo that looked at its best like a chimpanzee’s bum to me.

  8. Jo, Thats an interesting find… Actually from this we can deduce that the normal movie watching Malayalee welcomes newcomer girls as the heroines of our invincible superstars M&M, but cannot stand newcomer guys!!!

  9. Though written sarcastically, some of the awards are really inspiring. Padmapriya wins the ‘Most Malayalee than Malayalee Award’ hands down. So much so that everybody thinks she is a Malayalee. Mammooty may not be getting younger day by day, but sure he is not getting older.

  10. Nice one my friend! Had a very good laugh. πŸ™‚

  11. Though Hilarious, it saracastically shows the pathetic state of affairs of the Mallu Industry.

  12. Though sarcastical, it shows in real terms the pathetic state of affairs.

  13. Shouldn’t there be a ‘Most open secret’ award, which can go to Mohanlal for his wigs (various shapes, sizes). Maybe Gulfgate can sponsor this!

  14. very original !
