    Great article!!

    I agree if only big directors/producers in India were experimental/courageous enough, they have the capability to create even greater wonders.

    I think the only reason SDM was gone to Oscars is becas

    Is because of the Director...Laagan was a really good movie too if you guys remember it!

    It would have gone to the oscars too! but SDM is going is because of the Director Danny Boyle.

    I agree with Neelima Bajpai.

    I totally agree with Rajan ji sir
    No I don''t think we lack the capability in India. We have very talented directors here, but maybe the marketing standards and production values are lacking somewhere in the final product. We have made some brilliant films, but to get a name internationally, we need to improve on the above said factors.

    loved it
