Anurag Basu’s Barfi! out of Oscar race

Director Anurag Basu’s Barfi! has failed to qualify for the best foreign language film category for the 85th Academy Awards

Barfi!, featuring Ranbir Kapoor as a deaf and mute boy and Priyanka Chopra as an autistic girl, earned rave reviews and enjoyed box office success. And  out of  the 71 films that qualified for the Oscars from across the world, nine have been short-listed, which will further compete to make it to the final five nominations.

The nine selected films are Amour (Austria), War Witch, (Canada), No(Chile), A Royal Affair(Denmark), The Intouchables (France), The Deep(Iceland), Kon-Tiki (Norway), Beyond the Hills (Romania) and Sister (Switzerland). The final list will be announced on Jan 10.

We are sure  the makers of the film are hugely disappointed with the decision. But we can’t overlook the fact that the film was under the scanner for cut-copy-pasting certain scenes from international films.  Ranbir Kapoor rocked in the movie, PC mesmerized the audience, but the director lost all the brownie points when he didn’t pay much attention to the whole idea of staying original. Now that might be one of the reason why the jury thought the film doesn’t deserve to be short-listed. What do you think?
