Bollywood directors tell us about their Best Film which is nominated Oscars!

Now that Oscars is super close, we couldn’t resist but ask our Bollywood directors which movie do they think deserve the much eluded award and also which is their favorite Oscar nominee..

Sudhir Mishra: ”My Oscar for Best Film would have to go to Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street. It’s Scorcese’s best film since Good Fellas. People who have objected to the tone of the film don’t understand it’s the world that Scorcese has depicted that’s squirmy, and not the way it is portrayed. It’s a world of corruption and depravity and the film goes at it full-on.”
Sujoy Ghosh: ”I want Stephen Frears’ Philomena to win. There’s no way it’d win. But that’s the one I love the most. She is the one who stayed with me.”

Shoojit Sircar: ”It’s a toss-up between Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street.”

Amole Gupte: ”My choice is Gravity. It’s the 21st Century Solaris

Ajay Bahl: ”I loved The Wolf Of Wall Street. I think its Leonardo di Caprio’s best performance to date.”

Raj Nidimoru: ”Alfosno Cuaron’s Gravity hands-down. It’s a spectacular achievement where unprecedented craft meets beautiful human emotions. A spectacle we experience only once in a while. What is interesting is that the principal actors have not been nominated. But the film on the whole shines over the others.”

Bejoy Nambiar: ”Gravity is my choice, though I loved The Wolf Of Wall Street a lot more. But I still think Gravity is a path breaking cinematic experience .It will almost surely take the Brest Picture Oscar.”

Prawaal Raman: ”12 Years A Slave. It beautifully portrays the spirit of survival against all odds.”

Santosh Sivan: ”Gravity is awesome. It touches a new cinematic level.”

Ananth Mahadevan: ”Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave. The depiction of the dilemma of a man unjustly sold as a slave captures a regrettable chapter of American history. Steve McQueen paints a heart-rending picture. I prefer this human drama to the other nominees.”

Sahil Sangha: ”As a diehard Scorcese fan I’d want to see The Wolf Of Wall Street win. Gravity is another favourite because it is a rare exception that given the technical boundaries it has pushed, it still touches us as a human story. Jean-Marc Vallee’s Dallas Buyers Club and Philomena are also excellent. You have successfully asked the toughest question of the year and I’m suddenly not envying the Oscar jury one bit!”
