Bengali Filmmakers have tasted immense success at the 62nd National Film Awards of India winning 14 Awards across various categories. Srijit Mukherji made Bengal proud by winning a National Award for Chotushkone. This win was followed by the awarding of the Best Animation Film to Sound of Joy at the recently held National Awards ceremony.
‘Sound of Joy’ won the Best Animation Film at the 62nd National Film Awards with the Jury speaking extremely high of the film. The flowing and engaging animation style in narrating the stories from Vivekananda’s childhood and its emphasis on developing the power of concentration were some of the high points of liking this story by the jury panel.
Director Sukankan Roy who spearheaded this project said that this project was dedicated to bring back the lost childhood of the Indian children.This would also imbibe self-belief in them. The director was also equally ecstatic on seeing that so many fellow Bengalis have been awarded National awards in different categories.
At the function, each of the Awardees was conferred with the Rajat Kamal or the Silver Lotus Award. The team at Aura Cinematics, the Producers; were represented by Dipankar Sarkar, Sukankan Roy (Director) and Rishi Sahany (Animator).
Congratulations to the whole team of Sound of Joy for making us proud on the national level.
