Wins Best Actor 2012 at SAARC Film Festival
We carried the winning photograph on the cover of the Junior issue of
June 9. . This Unassuming Thisal Moragoda of 'Mouse' fame who took the
local Children's film world by storm, has hit the headlines again with
his starclass performance. He was awarded an international accolade in
the form of 'Best Actor 2012 at the SAARC Film Festival recently.
He is eleven years and his acting in "Mouse" was an absolute stunner.
The panel of judges were overawed with his stellar performance. Many
senior actors were also considered for this award but Thisal's acting
was way beyond anything the judges had seen in this part of the world,
They compared him to Ricky Schroeder who acted in the 1979
blockbuster, The Champ.
His stellar performance as Sookin, a poor boy living in the slums and
being talented and determined, he assembles computers and applies for
the 'World's Child Inventor' competition. He invents a mouse for the
computer which can be operated with the leg thus giving an opportunity
to the differently-abled also to make use of the mouse.
He gives life to this character and is the cynosure of all eyes. The
title of the film comes from the invention of the "Mouse".
