WHAT AWARDS DID ‘ENEMY’ WIN?

‘ENEMY?’, directed by Dinesh Bhosle and produced by Durga Prasad bagged the Best Konkani Film at the 2015 National Film Awards.

The film also won the best film award at the Haryana International Film Festival, 2016, where Salil Naik won best actor and Meenakshi Martins best supporting actress.

Later, it won the Golden Camera Trophy Award and was officially selected to be screened at the Kolkata International Film Festival, Goa Marathi Film Festival 2016, and London Indian Film Festival 2016.

The film also won best foreign language feature film award at the International Filmmaker Festival, Milan, Italy.

At Milan, the film was officially nominated in 5 different categories namely best foreign language film, best director, best cinematographer, best actor (Salil Naik) and best supporting actor (Antonio Crasto).

ABOUT ‘ENEMY’

‘Enemy’ is on a Goan Catholic family that discovers they have lost their property to the Government and their family honor is at stake.

Talking about the film in the media, director Dinesh said the biggest hurdle was catering to the expectations of Goan audience.

The main phase was shooting large scale protest scenes, which required crowds. It was difficult to find Goans to be part of it, luckily since the movie was shot in Agaçaim, the villagers helped by participating in the scenes. Other shots of the movie were filmed in New Delhi.

Salil Naik and Samiksha Dessai, both from Panaji, are the lead stars in the movie.

KUWAIT FILM FESTIVAL

In recent years, Konkani cinema has seen a number of commercially successful and critically acclaimed films.

Konkani films have seen a kind of rebirth, both in terms of the number of films produced as well as the diversity of subjects.

Comedy, music and poignancy are synonymous with Konkani cinema, and the Kuwait festival is sure to share this legacy with film lovers.
