Arun Vaidyanathan's Tamil film Achamundu Achamundu, a Tamil Film made by Arun Vaidyanathan has won the Homegrown - Best Feature Award at the recent 7th Annual Garden state film festival.

Diane Raver, the festival director announced that the festival gets close to 600 submissions every year and they choose a handful of films to compete in various categories. One of the criteria is Homegrown - where major portion of the film is shot in New Jersey.

As Achamundu Achamundu was shot mostly in NJ, the filmmaker decided to compete and won the award.

"I am very happy that we competed with American films and we were able to cross the language barrier and impress the people. People didn't mind that they were watching a foreign film and they were totally immersed in the film," Arun Vaidyanathan said.

The director hopes to bring Achamundu to the theatres in Tamil Nadu after the Lok Sabha elections and the IPL matches.

Sneha, Prasanna play the lead roles and Karthik Raja scores music for Achamundu...!
