From Mother India To Chhello Show: List Of All Indian Movies That Were Submitted To Oscars

India has submitted films for the Oscars, for Best International Feature Film since 1957. The Film Federation of India (FFI) appoints a committee to choose one film among those released that year to be submitted as India’s official entry to the Academy for a nomination for “Best Foreign Language Film” the following year.

The 1957 Hindi film Mother India was India’s first submission. This was the only film, that came close to winning an Oscar from India but lost to Nights of Cabiria by a single vote. As of 2022, only three Indian films—Mother India (1957), Salaam Bombay! (1988) and Lagaan (2001)—have been nominated for the award, after being sent from India as an official selection.

As of 2022, India has sent 55 films to the competition. 34 of which were Hindi films, three of which received nominations.
