Tamil Movie Soorarai Pottru Eligible For Oscars; Is It a Wake Up Call For Bollywood?

Nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards are out and Sudha Kongaraja's "Soorarai Pottru" is the only Indian film to go ahead and race for the Oscars. Not just the movie, but Suriya Sivakumar and Aparna Balamurli are also nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively. The film was premiered on Amazon Prime, much to the disappointment of actor Suriya’s loyal fan base as they were eager for a theatrical release.

While it is Bollywood that comes under the top five movie industries in the world, movies down the south have proved their significance time and again and the nomination adds another feather to their cap. Bollywood has been re-making movies from the south with almost no originality added to them. Meanwhile, the last Bollywood movie that could enter the Oscars was Lagaan back in 2001.

Do you feel that Bollywood has lost its charm over the years? Is this nomination a wake-up call for all those Bollywood filmmakers out there? Comment down your thoughts in the comments below.
