10 National Award-Winning Films Now Available on OTT

Following the announcement of winners at the 69th National Awards on Thursday, the internet exploded with mixed reactions. Some sections celebrated the triumph of their favorites, while others were taken aback by certain unexpected names, and there was another section that expressed deep disappointment.

As anticipated, films like “Gangubai Kathiawadi,” “Pushpa,” “RRR,” and “Sardar Udham” won big across various categories. However, some outcomes, such as Allu Arjun winning Best Actor, Kriti Sanon securing Best Actress, and Devi Sri Prasad receiving the Best Music Director award, raised eyebrows within certain sections. Conversely,  the jury’s failure to acknowledge certain critically acclaimed creations like “Jai Bhim,” “Karnan,” and “Sarpatta Parambarai” disheartened a section of the audience.

Many of these films are available online, with some even free to watch. If you haven’t seen them yet, here’s where you can catch these award-winning movies over the weekend.
