Marathi Film Court Voted Out of Oscar Race


Chaitanya Tamhane’s Marathi film “Court” is out of the best foreign film Oscar race after it failed to qualify in the Academy’s latest shortlist.

Debutante Tamhane’s film beat Rajkumar Hirani’s “PK”, Neeraj Ghyaywan’s Cannes winner “Masaan”, Omung Kumar’s “Mary Kom”, Vishal Bharadwaj’s “Haider”, M Manikandan’s “Kaaka Muttai” and SS Rajamouli’s “Baahubali” in the Oscar race.
