Oscars and Bollywood


Oscars have invariably eluded Bollywood movies in fine international movie category. However it is going to no longer be fair to assert, movies in India are not world type or now not deserving adequate to win awards. The Bollywood film enterprise is rich in it is possess atmosphere. With the aid of environment I imply Bollywood is widespread among Indians all over the place the world. India being the largest producers of films has never been fortunate at Oscars. Sad songs and other Indian songs have high quality of lyrics and music.

Consider this, India has made 82 submissions, 1 every year of direction seeing that 1957. Out of which simplest three were nominated. And no movie as but have won any Oscars. Now don’t think about Slumdog Millionaire, its British film. The three nominated movies for fine best international film are

Mother India (1957)

Salaam Bombay (1988)

Lagaan (2004)

Determine could be very susceptible and nearly an insult to Indian Cinema. this implies on the grounds that 50 years Bollywood has now not come up with one good movie that may be referred because the first-rate foreign film? Which is so now not authentic? There are a number of explanations for this.

Most importantly, Indian movies are certain and in no part of the arena you will see similarity. Indian movies feature cultural features like wedding songs picturised on wedding ceremonies, devout working out and way of life which best Indians can have an understanding of. That is why Bollywood can relate to Hollywood however not vice versa.

Secondly, international audience fails to comprehend Indian values equivalent to why folks live in joint families? Why are there no kissing scenes? And why there are songs after each 1/2 an hour? Video songs and actors dancing in movie is an alien idea to Hollywood. So how can members of Academy of motion picture Arts and Sciences have an understanding of lyrics of Hindi songs in the films?
