Zakariya's Sudani from Nigeria was one of the best films of Mollywood in 2018. The poignant tale on human emotions and friendship won big both commercially and critically. It had swept the state awards and has also got recognition at the National level. The film has bagged the Best Film in Malayalam film Category and Savitri Sreedharan gets A Special Mention at the National level. But, unfortunately, the team had announced that they will be boycotting the National Awards to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill. It may be noted that many Mollywood artists had boycotted last year's award ceremony as they were upset with the announcement that the President would handover only important awards.
