From the past few years, the Telugu films are doing extremely well at the National Awards and that tradition repeated this year as well. Many Telugu films like Mahantai, Awe, Rangasthalam and Chi La Sow bagged awards in some major categories. There is also a Telugu guy who won a national award but for a Marathi film.
He is popular cinematographer Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti who handled the camera work for Marathi blockbuster Sairat. Interestingly, Sudhakar bagged the Indira Gandhi Best Debut Director National Award for his maiden directorial film Naal.
Naal follows the journey of an eight-year-old boy who explores for motherly love. The movie is beautifully shot and is accompanied by heartwarming performances of all the actors. Sudhakar is currently working as the DOP for Telugu film George Reddy which is slated for the release in a couple of months.
