The list of winners of the 63rd National Film Awards was announced Monday, March 28, and movie-goers have been lauding the awardees for their notable performances in 2015. 

Mammootty's "Pathemari" has been selected as the Best Malayalam movie of the year and the movie was opened to tremendous response from the movie-goers for portraying the realistic story of many Keralities, who moved to Gulf countries for livelihood. The megastar's performance in the flick is considered as his career best to date. 

Actor Jayasurya got a special mention in the best actor category for his performances in the movies "Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam" and "Lukka Chuppi." The versatile actor, who was recently called as the Lio DiCaprio of Mollywood for failing to get many prestigious awards, considers the recent award as his Oscar. "This is like an Oscar for me and this is an award for the entire industry. I can't find words to describe my happiness. Isn't it a proud moment to see my name along with legends Amitabh Bachchan and many others? That itself is a big achievement," Jayasurya told Manorama News.

After winning the Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artiste this year, Gourav Menon aka Jugru has bagged the National Award as well for his performance in Vipin Atley's movie "Ben," which was opened to positive response from the critics. "Thank You all for the Support and Love. Thank You Jury â€ª#‎National_Awards‬," Gourav posted on his Facebook page after the National Award announcement. 

Meanwhile, celebrities, including Mammootty, Mohanlal, Dulquer Salmaan, Indrajith Sukumaran, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Anoop Menon, Aju Varghese, Ranjith Sankar, Anjali Upasana, Srinda Arhaan, Bijibal among others, have congratulated the winners for bagging the prestigious award this year.

When I offered susu to jayan I told him sudhi has potential to bring him state and national honours if we made him well. Although dint get the exact expected rewards it came close:) Congrats to jayan and the whole team who made it possible!
