It was recently nominated for the "Best International Feature Film" category, is India's Oscar entry, and is accessible through Netflix.

The shortlist for the international feature film category of the 2023 Oscars for Chhello Show was recently revealed. The movie is about a nine-year-old boy named Samay (Bhavin Rabari) from the Gujarati village of Chalala who discovers his love for movies while watching movies in a local movie theatre.

When it was first announced that SS Rajamouli's RRR would be the official Oscar entry, fans were upset because the Telugu film was seen as the obvious choice.

In addition to Chhello Show, there are 15 foreign films competing. Some of these are Close (from Belgium), Decision to Leave (from South Korea), All Quiet on the Western Front (from Germany), and Bardo (from Mexico).
