Here are the names of a few impactful actresses who left no stones unturned to give a powerful performance yet were overlooked; read on.
The winner of the National Awards was announced recently. Many actors and artists received much-deserved appreciation; yet again many impactful performances and actors who deserved to be on the list did not receive the awards.
Lima Das in Aamis (Assamese)
Lima Das's portrayal of Nirmali was a knock out performance in 2019 Assamese's cinema. Yet, it was left out by the jury. (Image courtsey: Pinterest).
Nimisha Sajayan in Chola (Malyalam)
Nimisha's performance as Janaki will live on to impress people for many years. A shockingly disturbing portrayal of a schoolgirl who goes through the worst incidents. A much-deserving performance that every movie buff must-see. (Image courtsey: A still from movie).
Usha Jadhav in Mai Ghat- Crime No 103/2015 (Marathi)
Usha Jadhav, who won the Silver Peacock for Best Actor at IFFI, Goa, undoubtedly gave a lasting performance as a mother who fights all odds to serve justice to her son, who is succumbed to custodial torture. (Image courtsey: A still from movie).
Kani Kusruti in Biriyaani (Malyalam)
Kani Kusruti amazes as 'Khadeeja' who breaks the barriers of religious beliefs and societal pressure, who is bringing her freedom down. She even earned the Kerala State Award for Best Actress and also Moscow International Film Festival. Weirdly, the jury missed this breathtaking performance from the eyes of the National Awards.

Parvathy in Uyare (Malyalam)
The film about surviving an acid attack deserved all the attention and awards this year. It was also one of those rarest films that narrate the story of dealing with a toxic relationship in the name of love. Pallavi, played by Parvathy, was a performance with high regards that deserved every bit of attention. (Parvathy in Uyare)
B Jayashree in Mookajjiya Kanasugalu (Kannada)
B Jayashree, a legendary actress herself, got ignored by the jury members this year. She played the role of Mookkaji, with sixth sense in Shivarma Karanth's novel that goes by the same name. It was a well-deserving performance that deserved the National Award. (Image courtsey: A still from movie).
