‘Uri’ big winner with 4 National Awards, ‘Badhaai Ho’ bags 2
NEW DELHI: Mainstream Hindi cinema bagged the lion's share of the 66th National Film Awards 2018 that were announced on Friday, with ‘Badhaai Ho’ -- produced by Times Group's Junglee Pictures -- getting two, ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ four, and ‘Andhadun’ and the controversial ‘Padmaavat’ three awards each in various categories.
The best feature film was bagged by Gujarati film ‘Hellaro’, a film on women empowerment in a patriarchal society.
‘Chalo Jeete Hain’, a short film inspired by events from the childhood days of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, won the National Award for best non-feature film on family values. AS Kanal, chairman of the non-feature films jury, said the film was judged on the basis of its content and the jury was not aware that the film was inspired by the PM’s childhood.
短片《Chalo Jeete Hain》改编自印度总理莫迪童年时代的故事，该片获得非剧情片最佳家庭价值观奖。正如非剧情片评委会主席卡纳尔所说，评委会是根据影片内容来评判这部电影的，并不知道这部电影的灵感来自总理的童年。
‘Badhaai Ho’ won the award for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment. Actor Surekha Sikri also won the award for best supporting actor (female) for her role in the 2018 blockbuster film.
“Junglee Pictures has always believed in telling impactful stories in the most engaging manner. This recognition in the form of a national award is truly gratifying. I am proud of the team for putting together such a delightful yet meaningful film,” said Times Group Managing Director and 'Badhai Ho' producer Vineet Jain.
The josh was high for the biggest winner of the day, ‘Uri’, which won awards for best direction, best audiography, and best music direction. The film’s lead actor, Vicky Kaushal, also shared the best actor award with ‘Andhadhun’ actor Ayushmann Khurrana.
This year, a total of 419 entries were received for the National Awards, of which 84 were considered by the 11-member Central Panel.
Sources told TOI the jury was initially divided on 'Uri' being considered for the awards since the film had been released in January 2019, while the National Awards are being conferred on films made in 2018. There were nine votes against it, and only one in favour, but the opinion was turned around after an impassioned argument in favour of the film. The fact that the censor certification was awarded to the film on December 31, 2018 helped it to just make the cut. For good measure, debutant filmmaker Aditya Dhar also won the best director award.

Jury had no idea that the short film was made on modi's childhood. They really believe that we are brain dead, especially after the election win.
A Kannada movie Naticharaami is a big winner with 5 National Awards.
Badhai ho was real entertainment and good movie. Uri was based purely on jingoism.
Jury was not aware that the short film was based on PM’s childhood..
What a nonsence. If we watch an biopic we litrelaly know whos biopic we are warching....Jury gave it an award because PM was involved there also...

Can''t believe that Andhadhun and Padmavat got awarded - lousy movies.
Of course the BJP glorifying propaganda movie Uri got the most awards

There is no BJP propaganda in that film. There is only patriotism. If you feel that Uri is a BJP movie, then that means that BJP is a patriotic party.
