“Last Film Show” is India’s Oscar Entry: Know about this Unheard Movie, Left RRR, TKF Behind


The 95th Academy Awards ceremony, which will be held on March 12, 2022, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, is still a few months away, but the film festival is already generating a lot of anticipation.

The Film Federation of India announced the Gujarati film “Chhello Show” (Last Film Show) as India’s official entry to the upcoming Oscars on Tuesday, September 20th.

Suparn Sen, secretary general of the FFI, announced the announcement following the jury’s deliberations, which were led by veteran Kannada director T.S. Nagabharana.

Chhello Show Left Behind “RRR” & “TKF”

On the one hand, while people applauded the fact that this internationally acclaimed film, about which a large portion of the country is unaware, was chosen as India’s official entry to Osar based on the story it delivered, fans of this year’s biggest blockbusters films RRR and The Kashmir Films must have been disappointed.

There was a lot of speculation regarding these two films in the Oscar race, but FFI dispelled all of it by selecting the Gujarati picture. Along with RRR and The Kashmir Files, the picture outperformed films like “Malayankunju” and “Shyam Singh Roy.” It is the second time a Gujarati film has been nominated for the coveted Oscars, following The Good Road in 2013.

Here are the reactions of film critics and other Twitter users over the decision made by FFI:

About “Chhellow Show” or ” Last Film Show”

Directed by Pan Nalin, Chhellow’s show is a Gujarati coming-of-age film that is a reminder of childhood innocence and revolves around a young boy living in Saurashtra. The story is set against the backdrop of cinemas in India witnessing a massive transition from celluloid to digital, where hundreds of single-screen cinemas stand dilapidated or have disappeared altogether.

The film had a world premiere as the opening film at the Tribeca Film Festival and has won multiple awards across various International film festivals including the Golden Spike at the 66th Valladolid Film Festival in Spain.
