Bollywood has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to quality cinema. So it seems from the announcement of the 58th National Film Awards.

The National Award for the Best Feature Film goes to Malayalam film ‘Adaminte Makan Abu’ (Abu, son of Adam), a simple yet evocative narrative of a man’s pursuit of religion. The film’s lead actor Salim Kumar shared the Best Actor honour with Tamil star Dhanush who was awarded for his performance in ‘Aadukalam’- a Tamil film that looks at the world of cock-fighting.

The only consolation for Bollywood came in the form of the Best Popular Film award to the Salman Khan starrer Dabangg. Vishal Bhardwaj shared the Best Music Direction award for Ishqiya with Issak Thomas Kottakapally for ‘Adaminte Makan Abu’.
