14th Pradhana Vizha (2014) : The Results and More !!!

Kicking of the evening was a  semi-classical performance by dancers from Suvarna fine arts & Bharatha Arts, choreographed by Ajith Dass. The hosts for the night were Saravanan Ayyavoo, Jaynesh and the gorgeous Udaya Soundari.  The Guest of Honour for the evening was none other than our Minister of Culture, Community and Youth and 2nd Minister for Communications and Information, Lawrence Wong.  

Udaya's win for best host for Rayil Sneham was extremely well-deserved. She managed to turn around a common concept into one that was refreshing and current. This year was pretty much a clean sweep for Veethi Varai, which bagged Best Drama, Best Actor and Actress and Videography.
Finally, we have someone who is deserving of the title " Queen of Vasantham". She took home with her Best Actress, Best Host and Most Popular Personality Female Personality Award. She is by far the most talented woman on Vasantham today.

It was special that the Lifetime Achievement award was presented to Manimaran. In our strange community, where dancers appear ever so often on television,but yet, are looked down upon as wasting their time and life away, it was heartening that this prestigious award was presented to a dancer.  Manimaran is one who has brought us fame on an international level. In line with that we had the staple dance performance by who else but our one and only Rameshwara Dancers. This has to be the only dance group in the world where people have accepted and anticipated the same few dance steps for decades. We actually look forward to seeing the same signature moves.
