[Trailer] Marathi Film ‘Court’ Gets Selected For India’s Official Entry to Oscars 2016
Debutant Chaitanya Tamhane’s film ‘Court’ beat Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘PK’, Neeraj Ghyaywan’s Cannes winner ‘Masaan’, Omung Kumar’s ‘Mary Kom’, Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Haider’, M. Manikandan’s ‘Kaaka Muttai’ and SS Rajamouli’s ‘Bahubali’ to get selected for India’s official entry to the Best Foreign Language category of the 2016 Academy Awards.
Tamhane’s ‘Court’, which narrates story of the trial of an ageing folk singer accused of performing an inflammatory song that may have incited a sewage worker to commit suicide in a manhole to expose the flaws of the Indian judicial system, has had a fascinating year, travelling to 19 national and international film festivals and picking up 16 awards.
‘Court’ was selected from a shortlist of 30 films by a Film Federation of India jury headed by film-maker Amol Palekar. Marathi film-maker Ravi Jadhav, who was part of the jury, made the announcement on Facebook with this post.
