Adaminte Makan Abu out of Oscar race


Trivandrum, 19 January 2011: Adaminte Makan Abu, India's official entry to the Oscar Awards in the Best Foreign Language film has failed to get an entry to the shortlist which comprises of final nine films.

The movie directed by Salim Ahmed featuring Salim Kumar and Sarina Wahab won many awards both in the state level and the national level in the year 2011. The film was earlier recommended as the official entry from India by the jury headed by JP Dutta.



 Adaminte Makan Abu was the second malayalam film to be selected as an Official Entry to Oscars from India. The first Malayalam movie for Oscar entry was Guru directed by Rajiv Anchal starring Mohanlal in the year 1997.  Eventhough India over 40 films to Oscars in foreign language category over the years, no Indian film has ever won the award.

However, the movie Dam 999 directed by Sohan Roy has been nominated for the best music category in the forthcoming Oscar Awards.
