    The film was awarded Best Film on Environment Conservation/Preservation Award at the 61st National Film Awards, 2013. Suraj Venjaramoodu was awarded the Best Actor Award. Noted filmmaker and jury chairman Saeed Mirza said in a press meet: "Suraj has played a municipal sweeper [in the film] but it is an incredibly dignified performance. He excels in comedy but in this film Suraj has brilliantly played a reticent character. I would not have been able to sleep had his name not been in the list of awardees."
