Once again the race for world's biggest awards - Oscars is round the corner and with the government's decision to drop the much acclaimed THE LUNCHBOX over National Award winning Gujarati film THE GOOD ROAD as India's entry for the best foreign film category at the Academy Awards in 2014 has started a series of debate.

According to reports, many eminent film personalities have expressed shock and disappointment but I think looking at India's rapport at the Academy Awards one need not worry much because ever since 1957 when Mehboob Khan's MOTHER INDIA was declined the honour to Aamir Khan's attempt to grab the golden statue for his masterpiece LAGAAN, the Oscars for Indians have become the proverbial sour grapes!!!

In fact, Amitabh Bcahchan has many times said that Oscar Awards are not 'The Ultimate Recognition.' In one of the interviews, Bachchan had said, ''I have no grudges against Oscar Awards but it has its own place. However in my opinion Indian cinema has stood first, stands first and is the best.''

Would NFDC produced THE GOOD ROAD win an Oscar for India is a million dollar question that will be answered in October when the Academy Awards are announced.
