Chaitanya Tamhane’s critically acclaimed Marathi film ‘Court’ was on Wednesday selected as India’s official entry to the Best Foreign Language category of the 2016 Academy Awards.
Marathi film-maker Ravi Jadhav, who was part of the jury, made the announcement on Facebook with this post.
‘Court’ is the third Marathi film after Sandeep Sawant’s Shwaas (Breath) in 2004, and Paresh Mokashi’s Harishchandrachi Factory (Harischandra’s Factory) made on the life of Dadasaheb Phalke in 2009 to be selected as India’s entry to the Academy Awards.

In his first reaction to the media, Tamhane, who is presently in Japan, said “At every juncture of the film’s journey, we have felt that it has given us more than we could ever imagine.
Once again, this has come as a genuine surprise to both Vivek and me. Ever since we started making the film, we kept our expectations low. Especially in this case, since these results tend to be so unpredictable, it just felt like a wise thing to not expect too much. Now that it has actually happened, we would like to thank the jury for their decision and everyone who has supported the film so far.”
