The much talked about and celebrated movie Newton is out of Oscar race. It has failed to find a place among the final list of nine films that will be voted and bring down to last five. Amit Masurkar of Sulemani Keeda fame directed the movie.
Newton starring Rajkumar Rao was the talk of the town earlier in the year when it was selected as India’s official entry for Oscars. There was a lot of hues and cry over it getting the selection ahead of Dangal. There were many voices both, for and against it. The last Indian film to get into top 5 was Lagaan staring Aamir Khan.
