From Bengal’s Depths to the Oscars

Akshay Kumar’s latest venture, ‘Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue,’ has made its mark by being submitted as an independent entry to the 2024 Oscars. This film, inspired by a true story, showcases the heroic efforts of a mining engineer who saved 65 trapped miners from a flooded quarry in West Bengal in 1989.

Oscar Rules Unveiled

The Academy Awards’ rules stipulate only one film per country in the Best International Feature Film category, submitted through an authorized committee.

However, producers of non-English films can submit entries for other categories if they meet eligibility criteria. At the 95th Academy Awards, SS Rajamouli’s Telugu blockbuster “RRR” was entered independently and secured a win for Best Original Song, showcasing the global recognition non-English cinema can achieve.

This demonstrates the Oscars’ openness to exceptional international work, acknowledging the diverse talent and creativity present in the global film industry.
