Water, the Deepa Mehta's film, which was at last sent by Canada, has won the nomination for Academy award in Foreign Language Films Category.
Good films ARE made in India also. But the problem is that good Indian films are not always sent for Oscar.
Was Rang De Basanti the best film in India? The question is debatable. While RDB was popular & has good screenplay, it is typically a Bollywood movie with a lot of melodrama. RDB does not have an universal appeal beyond subcontinent diaspora. Then why India sent Rand De Basanti for Oscars? There are many a people in India, who think that Omkara or even Water could have been better as India's entry to Oscar. Is our Oscar entry selection process flawed?
