What an achievement! The Malaysian film industry rejoices today.
Pulanaivu by our very own renowned director Shalini Balasundaram, makes global headlines by receiving Best Crime Thriller Feature Film Award, in the recent Toronto Tamil Film Festival 2020.
Datin Sri Shaila Nair has taken to her own Instagram handle to congratulate the entire team and express her heartfelt gratitude and happiness in receiving this outstanding award.
The Toronto Tamil Film Festival showcases Tamil Cinema created by Tamils internationally every year. The aim of this festival is to merely transform the way people see the world, through films. It is known to be a significant festival of Tamil films.
The Malaysian film has successfully made it internationally, competing with other movies around the globe directed by many well known directors, and garnering the noble award for the best crime thriller feature film is indeed remarkable and unforgettable.
Pulanaivu is a crime thriller that depicts the story of a college student caught in a mysterious murder which took place in her college. Meanwhile, a police officer on the other hand struggles to solve the murder mystery while battling her own life problems.
The movie stars many prominent actors and actresses of the Malaysian film industry such as Datin Shaila Nair as the police officer, the director herself Shalini Balasundaram playing the lead role, and Kabil Ganesan as the antagonist.
