Gyan Correa chose to make 'The Good Road', his first feature film, in Gujarati. Now, his labour of love has become Indian entry to the Oscars, making it the first Gujarati film to get this honour. In the process, 'The Good Road' has bypassed strong contenders like 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', 'Lunchbox' 'English Vinglish' and 'Vishwaroopam'.

 



The film was shot in vibrant Kutch, the filmmaker's choice after great research. The film depicts the tale of three people on a highway, who come across a problem and how they solve it. Correa took years to pen the story, completed the film in about a year and was supported by National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) which funded the film.
