    The Lunchbox: FFI needlessly drags on issue

    The Lunchbox: FFI needlessly drags on issue

    Cineswami feels the matter was resolved and the Oscar selection body has no business to comment on it further
    The august body that is the Film Federation of India (FFI) clearly needs a crash course in the maxim ‘let sleeping dogs lie’. Issuing a letter to The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra with copies marked to production companies Anurag Kashyap Films Private Limited and Disney UTV and to presenter Dharma Productions asking for an ‘unconditional apology’, rakes up the dying embers of the controversy and smacks of pettiness.

    The Lunchbox can go to the Oscars after all!

    The Lunchbox can go to the Oscars after all!

    Cineswami tells us how the Irrfan Khan starrer could still win an Academy Award
    Ritesh Batra, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and all those bemoaning the fact that The Lunchbox is not India’s entry to the Academy Awards’ foreign language category can take heart. It is technically possible to send the film to the Oscars, just not in the Best Foreign Language Film category as the Academy rules clearly state: “Only one picture will be accepted from each country.” Click here to read more

    London Film Festival 2013: The Lunchbox to vie for Best Film

    London Film Festival 2013: The Lunchbox to vie for Best Film

    But Indian cinema is cruelly underrepresented at the fest, feels Cineswami
    It is indeed wonderful news that Ritesh Batra’s delightful The Lunchbox (Dabba), starring Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrat Kaur, is in official competition at the London Film Festival and will compete for best film alongside some of the best directors across the world. However there are only 7 films of South Asian origin out of a total of 234 selected features, just 3 percent. It just doesn’t add up. Click here to read more
