Oscars in the Foreign Film Category.
"Harishachandrachi Factory" is the second Marathi film after "Shwaas" in 2004 to be selected as India's official entry to the Oscars. The two-hour-long film depicts the struggle of Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian cinema, to make 'Raja Harishchandra' in 1913, India's first feature film.
Though India has seen lot of great films going for the Oscars like Rang De Basanti, we have never made it to the stage where they say - "And the Oscar goes to ......!" I sincerely hope that this time around things will be different and that we will bring home one more Oscar (after AR made us proud last year) for the best film in Foreign Language category!
Cheers to the team of HFC and I wish them all the best for the Oscars. If Mr.Paresh Mokashi & his team need any help in promoting the film across Social Web, I am there for them anytime!
