It isn't often that a film gets nominated for awards just on the basis of it's script and the track record of its Director. In a pleasantly surprising developemt Onir's "Abhimanyu" and "Omar" have been nominated for Triangle Media Group's Global Awards. Both Abhimanyu and Omar have been nominated under the category of Best Educational Movie.
The awards have been launched by former TMG Honorary Award winner, the Right Worshipful Lord Mayor of Leicester Mrs. Manjula Paul Sood LL.D. The final winners will be announced later this year by Media Lawyer Professor David Flint in Sydney Australia who is National Convenor of Australians for a Constitutional Monarchy and former Chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Authority
