Well, GoW - frankly speaking, it had mixed reactions amongst locals itself! Many said it was like YUCK movie, and as many people said it was AWESOME. I havent seen it, so wont comment on it, but yeah u cant risk by nominating it when u have mixed reactions amongst locals itself.

The thing is, that the "taste" of the Academy jury may be vastly different from those of the locals. Not many locals liked Salaam Bombay either. A film is nominated based on what the jury may like, and considering the film was deemed "very good" by western critics at Cannes, it had a great chance.

Awesome movie. Ranbir comes up with an gret performance and priyanka too. Illeana shines in the role given to her.

I didn't like GOW much. I agree it was a hard hitting movie but so are most gangster and mob movies in Hollywood. One thing the westerners would have surely liked was the way poverty slums and lawlessness was depicted. That would have helped.
But that's just me. By the way I wasn't much of a slumdog millionaire fan either.

Even if they are copied, its not that they tried to hide it. Pretty sure that during the start of the movie, they even showed Charlie Chaplin on the frame. And I think even Ranbir Kapoor said something regarding Charlie Chaplin in an interview. :)

They should have mentioned that the movie was a tribute to so and so at the beginning if that was the intention of the filmmaker. Anyway, it has joined the 100cr club!
