''Even after all the trouble takken there is a lot of politics involved in the nomination of foreign films for the oscars.The nomination process is a real game of poker,says patric frater,International editor of screen international,The whole process is always a little murky and mysterious.Its always a difficult process to comprehend''

It is an admirable step that indian goverment has been inducing films to oscars and on international level indian films are being appreciated and got a rippend fruit.But why it is still just a process to induce films for oscar.

The very start of phenomena,remember when ashwarya rai's jeans was sent for oscar,majority of the film viewers did not even knew that there is any,such film exists not in america,but also in india the film did not showed any out standing perfomance, but the miracle started then,the miracle of given admiration to the indian films,the miracle of even analysing and assesing indian films on international levels and scales, and then after jeans many more,lagan mother india, bombay and the magic passed to paheli..............................

The climate changed when amir khan and ashutosh gavarikars lagan steped out,''it is not so much as lobbying as getting maximum number of jurors to watch the films. How can the film reach the nomination satge when it is not even viewed'' said amir khan about lagan, later he said ''once the film is watched then the film will take over.But we have to work till the point to getting nearly 6 hundred jurors to watch the''....''And this is possible if u have sound financial banking and charismatic marketting''

For the team to saty in one of the expensive cities like new york and meet people,talk to them of the film and entice them to come and watch special screening, all of this requires money. When last year the national award winning MARATHI language film SHWAS was selected as an entry for the oscars the produser did not have the required money they along with all marathi filmes and theatre fraternity literally were on roads urging people for funds needed for lobbying.In an interview mahesh bhut said ''why should we run after an oscar? the american do not undrstand our cinema and culture we should not bother about it'' Even they would have been excited and b come busy if one of there filmes had got an entry from the 900 plus movies india alone churns out every year.

The annual count of films produced in the indian subcontinent is more than 1500.

recently ashok amrit raj the former tennis player from india and currently a success full hollywood director and film producer said. ''indian film makers have to learn the marketing strategy and only then will they have the chance at succeding.

Well the films do have the chances of succeeding, if the films are bieng compared to the other international films ,if they are bieng appreciated and more obviously they are bieng nominate they do have a chance of secceding.Besides lagan and pehali there are a lot of indian films of which the full impact has yet to be assesed.

I recommend both the films, as the films are good to watch and though it is a professional need, upto 100 degrees. ''1 of the last year biggest controwersies surrounded the orignal UK entry hindi language the wariror which was rejected by the acadmy which ruled it intelegible bcauz it did not recognize hindi as a british language although it went on to win the best british film bafta awards. The films produces said the academy has rejected the movie b cauz of the epic scene in india was not what they were expect from an english film maker'' with increasing # of indian exp atriates in US and thier influence in the silicon valley ,americans to have been exposed to indian movies.
