Netizens criticize jury members for Rejecting ‘Sardar Udham’ from Oscars, Check out their tweets below

Sardar Udham Singh starring Vicky Kaushal has been garnering a lot of praise from the audience and critics. The film was even chosen among 14 other films to represent India in Oscars. But the jury of the members rejected the film saying that it portrays hatred towards the British. And after this the Netizens have been strongly opposing this on twitter claiming it’s unfair. 

Jury Member Indraadip Dasgupta revealed the reason behind why they didn’t select the film, he said, “Sardar Udham is a little lengthy and harps on the Jallianwala Bagh incident. It is an honest effort to make a lavish film on an unsung hero of the Indian freedom struggle. But in the process, it again projects our hatred towards the British. In this era of globalization, it is not fair to hold on to this hatred.”

While another jury member, Sumit Basu added, “Many have loved Sardar Udham for its cinematic quality including camerawork, editing, sound design and depiction of the period. I thought the length of the film was an issue. It has a delayed climax. It takes a lot of time for a viewer to feel the real pain for the martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.”
