Ranbir Kapoor In Barfi! Movie Stills

Director Anurag Basu’s Barfi! has failed to qualify for the best foreign language film category for the 85th Academy Awards, according to the latest Oscar shortlist.

Of the 71 films that qualified for the Oscars from across the world, nine have been shortlisted, which will further compete to make it to the final five nominations.

The nine selected films are “Amour” (Austria), “War Witch”, (Canada), “No” (Chile), “A Royal Affair” (Denmark), “The Intouchables” (France), “The Deep” (Iceland), “Kon-Tiki” (“Norway), “Beyond the Hills” (Romania) and “Sister” (Switzerland).

The final list will be announced Jan 10.

    I laugh because Hindus hoped on Oscar for Barfi. You hoped on what? Americans will pass lie? You don’t make laugh. Priyanka’s game killed, it is full lack of talent! Or the director is guilty, what he forced it to play so? You think that Americans fools? Asperger’s syndrome so don’t play, watch the movie “Rain man”, Dustin Hoffman game is ingenious. Priyanka plays feeble-minded, but not Asperger’s syndrome. Barfi – the good movie, but is based on lie. If Barfi remained with Ileana, I would believe in this couple, but couple feeble-minded – the deaf is marasmus!

    Paan singh tomar was the right movie in race for oscars… but this lobby people are fixers.. paisa do toh kuch kardenge.. Eklayva of saif was also sent by such selectors… so nothing can be expected from them.

    Paan singh tomar should have been sent to oscars not any copy-paste movie.

    Have u seen how the trio of ranbir kapoor, anurag basu and priyanka chopra have gone to lengths and breadths denying any plagiarism and happily publicising all the accolades, at this point each one is looking ridiculous with their false claims,it’s now almost their moral responsibility to acknowledge the fact that paan singh tomaar was wrongly deprived of it’s oscar nomination at their movie’s cost
