And the Oscar goes to...


The recent Indian film sent to the Oscars seems a Paheli to many.... It has raised hue and cry from each and every corner of the country. The choice of the jury members is being dissected by all the movie buffs across the nation. I don't understand what this brouhaha is all about. What difference does it make if we fail to win an Oscar? And why the hell should we be worried about winning an Oscar??

How does one decide that Oscar is the best award one can get for his contribution in making a film?? What makes us think so?? Let us face the facts....

Hindi film industry is the largest film industry in the world. Hindi films are watched by millions of people in the Asian subcontinent and the craze is being caught in U.K. and other European countries as well... On the other hand Hollywood movies are watched by a selected few... No one can compare the audience level of these two film making industries.... The Hindi film industry has half the world as its audience...

No doubt... the quality of films produced by Hollywood supersede those made by Indian film makers... Also many of the Hollywood movies are remade shamelessly by the Indian film makers....But the point is ... why should the Hindi film makers vie for an Academy award when the Hollywood audience hardly acknowledges the efforts put by other film makers outside U.S.A.... I just want to make my point... "We don't need Oscars to prove that we make good films to the West...." Don’t you agree??

Isn't it strange that this has come down to the capitalists from Osterville, and may I say uber-capitalists, objecting to the capitalist from Bass River making too much money.

I feel just as some of us get a High wearing brands of foreign make, The filmakers need a high amongst themselves that it is the Oscar Which Proves they make good Films.

It is about international recognition. The Oscars is one of facets that provides such an opportunity. The other famous one for foreign film is the Cannes Film Festival. Premiering a film there is a big deal. I think indian film-makers know that they really don't have the talent to create a masterpiece movie. Gone are the days of Satyajit Ray. From what I heard in interviews with the Paheli movie producers, they keep saying things to reassure themselves that they made a good oscar worthy movie. It's about world recognition.

OSCAR gaya bhaad main...
Let me share one fact with you all guys.The dinchack movies that rajinkant makes are super hit in japan.Why sould we try sending movies to oscar for been judged by some morons who donot consider our bollywood movies to be av good quality.[HEY BUT THEY ARE RIGHT... BOLLY SUCKS BIG TIME].

manikchand filmfare awards...every year that blody sssshhhhhaaaaa rurururur khkhkhkh aaaaa nnn will get an award ...

iifa awards....yuk

all awards suck ....and suck big time...

shii....

watch that great indian laughter challenge...awesome...these guys are doing a good job by recoznizing the talent ... laughter is a true form of entertainment...

forget it ...there is no point in discussing this ... bollywood is never gonna improve....

critics are biggest suckers in bolly...chocolate is a fabulous movie but htey rated it average....

DENZIL said...

I agree with you.... "gumnam" bhai...

There is no point discussing about the Bollywood fans.... When directors like Ram Gopal Verma make a movie on some different subject... instead of praising him for coming up with something innovative.... the media declares the movie as a big FLOP.....

Film makers like Karana Johar who repeat those same Ghisa Pita family stuff again keep on winning awards while the talented lot is neglected....

Yup... I personally recommend the movie "Chocolate"... Its really worth your money....

Watch the "Great Indian Laughter Champions".... and have a blast....
