Marathi film '‪Court‬' directed by Chaitanya Tamhane is India's official entry to the ‎Oscars‬ 2016 in the foreign film category.

The Secretary General of Film Federation of India announced the selection on Wednesday. Chaitanya Tamhane's directorial debut has won 18 international awards already, and is making its entry to the 88th Academy Awards.

Variety appreciated the directorial debut of Chaitanya and called it an "Outstanding debut." THR says, "Chaitanya Tamhane has come out as one of the world's most accomplished and promising film-makers under 30."

Based on the reality of courts in India, Court shows an impressive portrayal of paradoxes and contradictions that surround the Indian courts. Le Monde said, "A major film on the worrying state of freedom of speech in the Indian democracy."

Court swept away the National Award‬ for the Best Feature Film this year and has left behind blockbusters like SS Rajamouli's Baahubali and Koratala Siva's Srimanthudu.

Court will compete alongside films from all over the world in the Best Foreign Language Film category. In 2014, Geetu Mohandas' 'Liar's Dice' was sent to the Academy as India's official entry in Best Foreign Language Film category.
