The wait is finally over. Cultural Minister AK Balan has started announcing the 50th Kerala State Film Awards – 2019. Leaving Mohanlal, Mammootty, and Nivin Pauly behind, Suraj Venjaramoodu has won the best actor award at the Kerala State Film Awards 2019! The actor won the Best Actor award for his outstanding performance in movies ‘Android Kunjappan Version 5.25’ and ‘Vikruthi’.
Directed by Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval, ‘Android Kunjappan Version 5.25’ is a sci-fi comedy-drama that narrated the intervention of technology – a robot, in the life of 60-year-old Bhaskara Poduval. From the makeup to minute mannerisms Suraj Venjaramoodu aced the character of Bhaskara Poduval with utter grace. Suraj Venjaramoodu portrayed the beauty of the relationship between Bhaskara Poduval and the Robot Kunjappan at its best.
Meanwhile, ‘Vikruthi’ is a 2019 release Malayalam movie directed by Emcy Joseph. The movie is inspired by the real-life incident, of a hearing and speech impaired man being mistaken as a drunk person, and his video going viral online. Suraj Venjaramoodu played the role of Eldho.
Suraj Venjaramoodu has been entertaining the movie buff for nearly two decades now. As a comedian, character actor and now a hero, the actor has shown us his acting chops. Making people laugh is the toughest job and Suraj Venjaramoodu has done that gracefully in the past. The actor has been focusing on characters that give him space to perform in the last couple of years and he was able to churn out some exceptional performances of late.
Congratulations Suraj Venjaramoodu!
