Best National Award Winning Performance as Actor - Both Male and Female

National Awards are definitely given for outstanding performance. No one might have seen all those award winning performances. Yet from those movies seen, which actors (male and female) have really touched your heart with their performance?

I watch only Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam. So, if I take only these three languages as constraints, my vote for best award winning (male) goes for Kamal Hassan for Moonnam pira. It was later dubbed to Hindi as Sadma. Can anyone forget that heartbreaking climax scene of the movie??? Big B for Black, Mohanlal for Bharatham and Mammootty for Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha are also my favourites.

It's Shabana Azmi for Arth if it's female category. She is indeed a wonderful actress. Shobhana for Manichitrathazhu (Bhool Bhulayya/Chandramukhi - other remakes), Sharada for Thulabharam, Vidhya for Dirty picture and Suhasini for Sindubhairavi also worth mention.

I have seen very few films so I will vote for Kamal Hasan for Sadma and Vidya Balan in dirty picture to be on a safer side. :)
Sandhya Rani haha

Which movie of Kamal? He has won it thrice.... I havent seen Nayakan yet. It's the remake of famous 'Godfather'. One of its songs composed by Illayaraja later gave rise to..sorry inspired (?) 'Kolaveri' song of Dhanush

I love Kamal in 2 movies. One in Sama and the other is Indian. Sarda's histrionics in Thulabharam which won her 'Urvashi ' title is an epitome of perfection in histrionics.
Sandhya Rani Do u watch Malayalam movies?
She gave 100% perfection to the role of a poor widow who kills her all her 3 kids by giving poison, yet survives from death. In present times, the story may not be viable. But it truly reflects the bad status and poor conditions of low economic class of Indian peasants soon after independence.
