Gujarati film The Good Road is India’s entry for Oscar!

Debut feature filmmaker Gyan Correa’s Gujarati film  has been chosen as India’s entry for the best foreign film category at the Academy Awards 2014. It is perhaps the first Gujarati film to have made it. The Lunchbox and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag  are out of the race

Gyan Correa’s National award-winning Gujarati film The Good Road, a lost-and-found story of a small boy, was on Saturday nominated to represent India in the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars.
The little known film off strong competition from mighty Hindi films like The Lunchbox, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, English Vinglish, Malayalam film Celluloid and Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam “It was a unanimous decision to select The Good Road, which is a movie produced by the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC),” renowned filmmaker Goutam Ghose, who headed the selection committee appointed by the Film Federation of India (FFI), told IANS.

The Good Road had clinched the National Award for Best Feature Film (Gujarati) earlier this year.

“The movie left behind 21 other contenders, including strong films like The Lunchbox, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, English Vinglish, Vishwaroopam, Malayalam film Celluloid and Bengali film Shabdo, he said. The Lunchbox was a very strong contender. I loved the film,” said Ghose. A committee of 16 people was appointed to make the selection.

Irrfan Khan Nimrit Kaur  and Nawazuddin Siddiqui -starrer The Lunchbox, which released Friday, was said to be a frontrunner for the Oscar, but the movie couldn’t make it.
