B'wood films incapable of making it to Oscars

Every year Indians hope that some Bollywood film would make it to Oscars but sadly nothing of that sort happens. I think it's only Bollywood directors who are highly incapable of writing great scripts that can win Academy Awards. What do you think?

First of all we should stop worrying about Oscar. Why we need Oscars? our films made for Indian audience.

why we look to hollywood for honour? all films in the bollywood are not great but there are still some great movies produced in bollywood.

I think Barfi was quite deserving but then with so many portions of the film picked from a Hollywood flick, it was bound to get dropped.

There's no point even discussing this. Oscars are the most scared awards and our Indian films are only used to biased and no-so-fair awards shows like Filmfare, Screen Awards et al.. Bollywood films do not stand anywhere close to Oscar nominated films

only if our Bollywood directors would think beyond copied scripts from Hollywood, they can come up with interesting and original scripts that may get nominated for oscars

Most of our films are inspired one!!! The original stories will not fit in Oscar culture. No proper marketing and too much of politics in selecting a good film. we send films based on the box office collections or the contacts the hero or producer has.

indeed. proper and adequate marketing is very essential so that our films can get the platform they deserve.
