The word of mouth worked with time for this movie presented by Rana Daggubati. Despite getting critical acclaim from the audience, the movie failed to gain any National Award. Keeping receiving the awards aside, the film was not even getting nominated because the producer of the movie is Paruchuri Praveena who happens to be an American with Indian origin.
Only a film that is produced by an Indian will be considered to be eligible for the national awards. Directed by Venkatesh Maha with all new cast, the movie succeeded in impressing the audience but because of that one reason, the movie failed to become eligible for national awards.But, Kancharapalem was not shot and released in American. It is an Indian movie made by an Indian and released in India. It is really unfortunate that the Indian government is not accepting to nominate this film.
