No Aligarh, Thithi or Sairat, This Powerful Film Is Going As India’s Official Entry To Oscars
It’s the reign of regional cinema as far as India’s prospects at the Oscars are concerned. After the feet sweeping Marathi court room drama Court was sent as India’s official entry to the Oscars, another powerful regional cinematic product has been picked by the jury this year. Produced by Tamil superstar Dhanush, Visaranai will represent India at the Oscars this year.
This year’s Tamil release that has already won as many as three National Awards, the crime drama directed by Vetrimaan will fight it out in the race of Best film in the foreign language category. While Visaranai was already hailed as one of the most impactful film of the year, its gripping narration and a powerful take on some social issues made it a film hard to forget.
Starring Dinesh Rai, Anandhi and Aadukalam Murugadoss, the film won Best Tamil Feature Film, Best Supporting Actor And Best Editing Award at this year’s National Awards. The crime thriller that was wonderfully executed at so many levels dealt with police brutality, corruption and injustice. Film’s producer Dhanush will now have a lot to look forward to.
While films like Aligarh, Thithi, Sairat and Chauthi Koot were in contention to be picked by the jury, it may appear a little surprising to a certain people since both Thithi and Sairat were strongly competing According to Desimartini’s ratings, the film is currently placed with 3.6 stars. Let’s hope the impactful film does bring some glory to the country.
