SERIOUS film industry awards platform Anugerah Majlis Pengkritik Kuala Lumpur (AMPFKL) earlier today announced results for its fifth edition. Spanning eight categories, this year’s announcements saw five awards going to Shanjhey Kumar Perumal‘s critically-acclaimed Jagat.
Jagat, the best-reviewed local film of the past year, famously became the first Tamil film to win Best Film at national film awards ceremony Festival Filem Malaysia (FFM). But at AMPFKL, the work of young orphan Harvind Raj (who plays Appoy) was given long-overdue credit. Harvind received the Best Actor title, beating out co-star Jibrail Rajhula, Nam Ron (Redha) and Tommy Tam (The Kid from the Big Apple).
Elsewhere, actor Bront Palarae was deemed Best Supporting Actor for his role as sports commentator Rahman in Ola Bola while Nadiya Nisaa won Best Actress thanks to a solid turn in Love, Supermoon. Nabila Huda, who received FFM’s Best Actress award despite the nature of her role in Munafik, obtained the Best Supporting Actress title.
