A few days ago I had written a post explaining “Why Indian movie won’t win an Oscar“, now a few days later its proved that my assessment is correct.

India’s official submission for The Oscar was Barfi!, a movie which has lots of scences lifted from legendary international movies. But the movies which actually deserved this honour were Paan Singh Tomar and Kahaani. Both these movies had great performances by its lead actors and well supported by others. Directors and writers had done an excellent work on them, although both movies were of different genre, but they had right ingredients of a great movie.

A deserving movie lost out to copy-cat Barfi!

Its such a pity that we keep our best movies in the box and send a goofy movie to The Oscars.

Yo Selection Committee do your homework right! Otherwise………..
