India’s official Oscars entry: Many thought that either of these two films – The Kashmir Files and RRR – could enter India’s official Oscars.
RRR, the boy show is nominated in the Oscar race, leaving behind The Kashmir Files
All speculations over, Rajamouli-directed RRR, not Vivek Agnihotri-directed The Kashmir Files, Pan Nalin-directed Gujarati film Chhelo Show is being sent as India’s official Oscar entry. The Film Federation of India announced this on Tuesday. Pan Nolin’s film is called Last Film Show in English. Pan Nolin responded to the news with a tweet. “OMG! What is going to happen tonight! Thanks to Film Federation of India and FFI Jury Members. Thank you guys for believing in Chelo Show Cinema. Now I can breathe again and believe in cinema that entertains, inspires and enlightens!”
This Gujarati language new age movie has won the hearts of critics and audiences worldwide. This time it will be released in cinema halls of Gujarat on 14 October 2022 and in selected theaters across the country. Director Pan Nalin spent his childhood in rural Gujarat. It was there that the film Last Film Show (Chello Show) was made, inspired by his fond memories of cinema. Only Here is set in the era of the digital revolution, featuring the magic and science of light and shadow behind celluloid, and a nine-year-old boy dreaming. Navigating both social pressures and economic uncertainty, he pursues his passion for the “movie show” with single-minded devotion, oblivious to the technological ups and downs that lash out at him. An authentic, organic, and emotional image built around food and friends that inspires everyone.
Robert De Niro’s Last Film Show (Boy Show) had its world premiere as the opening film at the Tribeca Film Festival and won several awards at various international film festivals, including the Golden Spike at the 66th Valladolid Film Festival in Spain, where it enjoyed commercial success during its run.
Many thought that either of these two films – The Kashmir Files and RRR – could enter India’s official Oscars. Many were surprised that there boy show made it to the Oscar competition. Of course, the kind of films that the Oscars award in the film category, or the films they choose to award, feature films like The Boy Show. So the film could be a strong entry in the Best International Film category at the Oscars.
