Oscar honor for Indian film
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
July 17, 2007
This one might have been a surprise even to the makers of the film. Vipul Shah would never have thought while directing the movie that it would eventually end up in very elite company; this one was simply not meant to be a masterpiece but then great works of art are not planned, they just happen.
Namastey London
When Namastey London, the Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif starrer released earlier this year it was received pretty well by the audience as a breezy romance with a generous sprinkling of comedy; Akshay being the livewire of the movie. But after having a good run in theaters the movie was forgotten as Bollywood and its audiences looked ahead to bigger things and Namastey London was registered in everyone’s memory as one of the hits of 2007 (the number of hits this year is really low).

But now, Namastey London has received official master class status with the Academy of motion pictures, arts and sciences (the one that gives away the Oscars) inducting the screenplay of the movie into its library. This is an honor reserved for movies of the highest class and it would not be wrong to say that it is a big surprise that Namastey London which boasted of nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary has been accorded this status. Namastey London now joins Indian movies such as Lagaan and Devdas that are already part of the library. Kudos to the Namastey London team for this rare and distinguished honor.
