Rang De Basanti is India’s official entry to the Oscars this year. This is a shocker. I’ll keep my views about the film to myself, but the Film Federation of India should by now know the kind of movies that win Oscars and Rang de Basanti certainly doesn’t fall into that category. And surely, the film’s no match forOmkara. Maqbool was perfect Oscar material, though the director then did not submit the entry, but Omkara, had it been the Indian entry would have had a bright chance to get a nomination.
The thrid major movie in the fray was Lage Raho.. Seems that the Mahatma loses out to a bunch of violent youngsters.
