Watching the Oscar mess unfold are filmmakers who in many ways would be the real gatekeepers of global Indian cinema. But because of the Oscar jury's strong Bollywood bias they rarely make it to the Oscar shortlist.
It is a great irony, given that some of the best work, from outside of Mumbai including India's only Oscar award. The only award India received at the Oscars was by Satyajit Ray.
Filmmakers say it is this kind of cinema in India's regional art houses that should also be in the reckoning of awards and festivals.
But considering even local film events don't create space for them it's unlikely that they are considered in the race for our Oscar entries.
"The international awareness of Indian cinema is unfortunately Bollywood. That's the biggest drawback where regular cinema takes a backseat," said Priyadarshan, filmmaker.
Buddhadeb Dasgupta's films like Charachar, Kalpurush, Grihajuddha and Bagh Bahadur have won awards at Cannes and Berlin where our mainstream commercial cinema has often failed to impress.
But Dasgupta has never been in the reckoning for any Oscar entry although he was invited on the jury once in what he saw as a mere tokenism for regional cinema.
''Last year they wanted me to be there. I said no because I was just not interested. I knew for quite some time this selection also not very fair," said Buddhadeb Dasgupta, filmmaker.
Regional films have at best been a token presence in India's Oscar race only seven half-hearted entries in the last 50 years.
* 1987: Nayagan by Mani Ratnam * 1992: Thevar Magan by Bharathan * 1995: Kurudhi Punal by P C Sreeram * 1996: Indian by Shankar * 1998: Jeans by Shankar * 1986: Swathi Muthyam by K Vishwanath * 2004: Shwaas by Sanjay Sawant.
''Ask them those who have selected these films. The names you have just mentioned barring few most of the names I have never heard," said Buddhadeb Dasgupta, filmmaker.
2011/11/19 0:44:08 Veteran actress and Secunderabad MLA Jayasudha who drifted towards Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSR Congress party some time ago, but wisely skips resignation to her MLA position gives a clear hint of returning to Congress party. Although, she claims herself the most honest politician in the current politics, she also learnt a lot of political lessons in a very short time. Understanding the advantages of being in the ruling party, she makes a formal move to return to Congress party. She showers praises on Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and his determination for the welfare of the poor.
Speaking to media Jayasudha said "In fact, I am always with CM Kiran Kumar Reddy, because he is very honest man and a man of action. Especially, I am dragged with his welfare schemes like 'Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu,' which are really very helpful to the needy. So, my support is always there to him and I expect he reciprocates the same way by sanctioning small favors like granting Jr. College, a Hospital etc to my constituency."
It seems Jayasudha has learnt politics faster than Chiranjeevi and making graceful moves to return to Congress fold before it's too late for her.
