The Secret Life Of Man, a biopic about a family in Kerala that has a history of kidnapping, murders and sexual abuse of its own, won the Best Film category at the Golden Globes.
It will also be presented on Sunday at the Bollywood Film Awards, which is being held in Los Angeles.
The film tells the story of the family’s life in the town of Kannada, which has become a stronghold of organised crime in Kerala, since the country became independent in 1949.
It is also the first film of its kind in Kerala.
The movie has been a huge hit with audiences.
The Kannadavikaya Foundation, which owns and runs the film festival, said it had received over 12 crore tickets to its events in the past two years.
The foundation said the festival has been generating over 20 million dollars in revenue since 2014.
