Majority of people are showing their discontent towards the decision of Kerala State Award Jury. The main reason behind this is because the award jury didn't even consider the effort of Mammootty and Jayasurya. Anyhow what Jury had to say about this, provoked people much more. Jury said that looks of both the actors does not favor the roles in the story. Like Mammootty and Jayasurya name of one actress was also mentioned as the unfortunate one that was Manju Warrier. She responded to all this issue in cool way through her Facebook page.
She wrote her Facebook status in Malayalam here is the English translation for that,
"Congratulation for all the winners. Awards are the token of appreciation, not only that they are jewels which we acquire in a successful journey. Nivin when ever i came across your movies i have thought that you are a good actor and i was sure that one day this award will come to you. I haven't seen Sudev Nair's performance but still people are saying that you have done a brilliant job in the movie Life Partner. Nazriya my younger sister when i saw Ohm Shanthi Oshaana and Bangalore Days i was impressed and u deserve this award. Sanal Kumar Sasidharan u proved that being lavish is not a factor for making good cinema, director of the movie Ottaal my beloved Jayettan, Sethu Lakshmi who made me spell bound with her performance in the movie How Old Are You, Anoop Menon, Anjali Menon, Ranjiyettan, Siddharth Siva, beloved Dasettan, Shreya congragulation to all of you. I do know that there are much more name to be mentioned here i put up this status remembering all of those who won this prestigious awards. This years Kerala State Awards is indicates that all sorts of movies are being appreciated. Anyhow a big shake hand for all those who has won the awards."
R Unni script writer of the movie Munnariyippu said that it is surprising that jury is stating this kind of a reason for rejection of award for Mammootty. Those who has seen the photo of Govindachamy before his arrest and after one year of his arrest will know that how he has changed.
Meera Nandan the famous actress said that is she happy for all the winners but she needs to know that why Jayasurya was not given a award and she wrote with a hashtag that thumps down jury.
Vinod Mankara who at present is working over the third Sanskrit movie in India Priyamanasam responded through his Facebook page that,
