Vijay Awards - Was it biased ?
Till this year Vijay awards has been praised as unbiased awarding ceremony where the talent gets identified and awarded. But, there were few eyebrows raised on the Vijay awards being biased to few tamil film celebrities. According to me, it was all very good except for few exceptions and these minor exceptions are difficult to avoid. Taking the vijay awards from Vijay TV as a whole, there are many factors to consider. I will point out aspects that I look for and admired & ofcourse enjoyed watching it.
Comparing with any other regional awards, Vijay TV has been doing a great job in fecilitating the tamil film celebrities. Now, it has become a big brand name for celebrities too, Dhanush in one point said that his "Adukalam" would get 6 or 7 Vijay awards. With too much of competition between the films and when they get recognized, celebrities are behind it for sure. I think going forward more people will be proud with their Vijay TV award. Also, there seems to be very less political influence in the Vijay TV as a whole and with these kinds of shows which makes the show better.
Vijay TV has their own people to compere, perform on stage, fill the time, do anything that they want. They have few celebrities to perform on stage but otherwise its their own guys who drive the show. This year Shriya, Amala Paul, Bharath performed on stage with some super songs adding more glamour to the show. Gopinath and Shivakarthikeyan compering was very nice and they were interacting with the audience which made it better. Shivakarthikeyan's sense of humour made it best.
I think the awards were given to best talent in most of the cases except for entertainer of the year award. It would been given to actor Arya for his few films in the year and all of them really entertained us. Madarasapattinam and Boss engira baskaran from Arya made a good point for him but I am not sure if they look for single film for entertainment. Best actor could also been considered for Arya for Madarasapattinam. Otherwise most of the other awards were in perfect hands. These can be the exceptions in the show which can be ignored for the most other part were perfect. There would have been quite many considerations by the jury for choosing these awards even which I might not be aware even. So, I am not complaining that the awards are biased.
