The movie Eklavya was selected by the Film Federation of India for an entry to the Oscars. The nearest competitor of a movie ‘Dharm’ has alleged bias and the Bombay High Court has decided to intervene. On the 30th of September, a division bench of the Court passed a order stating prima facie bias in the selection.
Hell! What’s happening to our judiciary? The very idea of separation of powers seems to be getting diluted. I can just imagine if the matter goes ahead; the judges infront of a 70mm screen watching the movies and deciding the selection. 🙂
I have not seen Eklavya. I dont see many of these hindi movies. But I still don’t think the Court should interfere in deciding whether an organisation’s choice is right or not.
