Though largely ignored by the box-office, Mani Ratnam’s Kadal was the biggest gainer in the Vijay Awards last night. It won six awards in total and closely followed by Soodhu Kavvum, Paradesi and Raja Rani with four awards each to their kitty.
Brinda Master won the Best Choreography award for Adiye song, Shakthishree Gopalan won the Best Female Playback singer for Nenjukkulle, Arjun won the award for Best Villain. Gautham Karthik won the Best Debut Actor and AR Rahman won the Best Music Composer award. The film’s cinematography was indeed one of the few things which critics spoke in length when it was released. And, Rajeev Menon won the award for Best Cinematographer to take the total tally to six.
