Oscar Nominated Indian Movies List: Top 5 Movies that Garnered Much Reverence for India
An Academy Award is a matter of great respect, not just in Hollywood, but in Bollywood as well. Even though movies like ‘Gandhi’ and ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ have won Oscars for the incredible work that they did, there are many movies that were nominated but failed to win an award. Well, they win or lose, at least they left an impact on the hearts of the Jury and that is more important than anything else, isn’t it? Oscar Nominated Indian Movies List: Top 5 Movies that Garnered Much Reverence for India
So, let’s have a look at the top 5 Bollywood movies that were nominated for the prestigious Academy Awards.
- Mother India
This movie is nothing but an epitome of how a movie should be. It had emotion, drama, a message and every other masala for a good movie. ‘Mother India’ was India’s first entry to the Oscars and undoubtedly it deserved all the attention it got.
This Dev Anand-Waheeda Rehman starrer became a super-duper hit the day it got released. It is still believed to be one of the cult classics and at that time also, it won hearts of the Jury. But it was only due to the tough completion that it couldn’t win the award.
- Salaam Bombay!
This movie is all about the daily lives of the street urchins of India, especially of Mumbai. Directed by Mira Nair, the story of ‘Salaam Bombay!’ teaches us about life and the consequences of the decisions we take.
- Hey Ram
This cult classic is directed, written and produced by Kamal Hassan and is about Nathuram Godse and his plan to kill Mahatma Gandhi. ‘Hey Ram’ was slammed a lot but yet it proved its mettle.
All the credit of the success of this movie goes to the very brilliant actor, Anupam Kher. His immense talent showcased to the entire world how potent the talent of India is.
