This is after the film being nominated last day for the Oscars. "Newton" is a film that should get in top five films at the Oscars because it's really good and relevant and shows different side of India", she said. The movie is India's official entry for the 90th Academy Awards which will take place on March 4, 2018, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

"Newton", which hit screens on September 22, also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Raghubir Yadav, Anjali Patil, Danish Hussain and Sanjay Mishra. "It stands a good chance if it is selected as India's official entry". From lobbying for your film through local interview in the states and constantly trying to attract attention of the jury towards one's film, there is apparently a lot more going on behind the scenes.

Rao also feels Newton enjoys an advantage owing to the universal appeal of its subject.

#Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Casks from 1991 were selected to mark the year Kingsman agent Gary "Eggsy" Unwin was born-fake born, that is; it's only a movie . I always say about filmmaking it's like eating sausages, it's best not to really know how we do it, I think it ruins the magic.

The film is Amit V. Masurkar' second feature after the slacker comedy Sulemani Keeda, which had a limited release in 2013. And Newton has now made that dream come true. As per sources, the leakers had released a low-quality print earlier, but they soon replaced it once the best print of the film was available to them.

"It was not an easy film to make as we shot in the middle of nowhere in the jungles of Chattisgarh, but we had a great time, ' Rao recalled, adding that Newton was 'a very Indian film" that 'resonates with people all across (the world)'.

Be it the senior policeman Atma Singh, local booth level officer Malko Netam, the severely ailing official Loknath or a bunch of policemen on duty to guard them, Masurkar vividly brings the milieu with stark reality. Previous entries included like "Court", "Liar's Dice" and "Lagaan".
