We live in a world where a Dharma Productions movie or one by Rajshri Productions will pull people to the theatres like a magnet, but have you ever stopped to think what actually makes a movie worthy of a National Award? It’s the hard work of the team and offcourse, a great script. Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Newton’ has won the national award for the best film and it is deserving in every way.

Pankaj Tripathi, who played a pivotal role in the movie, got a special mention for his stellar acting.

The movie talks about elections being held in a Naxal-controlled environment. Pankaj played the character of Aatma Singh, who is a Central Reserve Police Force officer in the movie. The film was also sent as an entry for Oscars but lost the race to other movies. This win has united the internet unanimously about ‘Newton’ getting what it deserved.
