Why Adayalangal won accolades

Adayalangal (The imprints) is a 100-minute long feature film directed by M G Sasi based on the life and works of well known Malayalam writer Nandanar.

The film won major awards at the recently announced Kerala state film awards including best film, best director and best cinematographer (M J Radhakrishnan).

The film beat Adoor Gopalakrishnan's Naalu Pennungal, which was a strong contender for best film as well as direction.

According to the director, "Adayalangal takes you through the kaleidoscopic world which Nandanar created through his works comprising children's literature, re-creations of rural life and stories which smell of blood and gun powder. Hunger is the leitmotif of the film, especially hunger of the body and mind. The movie presents in a frame work all these hungers, heightened or lessened, which form the substance of all human life in all ages."
