A shocking information that came last day, tells us that the magnum opus of Indian cinema named Baahubali directed by SS Rajamouli has been rejected from the list of Indian Panorama section which is selected to show in the International Film Festival of India. Even a single Telugu film was not selected to the list of Indian Panorama and this rejection of Telugu cinema now became a usual incident as well. The International Film Festival of Indian will take place at Goa from 20th November to 30th November.
As per reports 6 Telugu films were submitted before the jury of Indian Panorama selection but not a single one seems worthy to impress jury members surprisingly. The rejection of Baahubali is very surprising indeed as it is regarded as the most technically perfect film ever made in India and also one which can be matched even to the epic films from Hollywood in its making style.
The flick has been accepted by the audience whole heartedly and it had become one of the biggest success in Indian Cinema as well. But all that cannot help it to make into the list of Indian Panorama. Apart from SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, Mahesh Babu starred film Srimanthudu also submitted for selection. It was a film that got great critical and commercial success there and regarded as one of the best in Mahesh Babu’s career as well. Still jury found it not worthy and rejected it as well.
Most number of films were selected from Bengali as 7 films were selected from Bengali language out of the 26 films that totally selected to the Indian Panorama list. From Hindi there is 5 film selected and from Malayalam there is 4 films as well. This was not the first time Telugu films gets rejected from Panorama Selection. Last year also same was the situation even after the jury of last time had two Telugu directors as well in it. This time also National award winning Telugu director Praveen Sathar was there in the jury but still a film from that state not found a place in the list.
Jury was strict about the aesthetic value and freshness of the theme while choosing films to Indian Panorama and that’s the reason stated for the rejection of Telugu films.
