I don't think it deserves a National Award personally, I think its really overated (Like many of Aamir Khan Production pieces, I think).
 
The film had an interesting concept but it was presented poorly IMO. You have to make it watchable and entertaining, this film had me asleep within 10 minutes Sleepy

thats how film festivals work, but not sure about NA. they cost money to promote it. even short film and documentary.

^ya Peepli Live was too Indian, in it's nuances...humour and sensibilities...a DG has more gloabl appeal... Aamir Khan is experimenting just to get the oscar formula right!!!Tongue

is Peepli Live even oscar worthy?
 I know Udaan would've made it to nominations if they had sent it. Oscars are sucker for Coming of Age stories.
