Maamanithan won the gold in the Best Asian Film category, while Takahiro Kawabe's Love Song at 5 pm won the silver and Mart Bira's Nomadic Doctor took the bronze at the Tokyo Film Awards.
The story of Maamanithan is about a simple man who longs to provide good education to his children by getting them admitted to a private school. To increase his income, he enters into a deal with a real estate developer and in the process gets conned. The problems he faces are what the film is all about.
