Resul Pookutty who is a sound mixer from Kerela has made it to the Oscars with an Academy Award Nomination for Sound Mixing for the movie Slumdog Millionaire. He shares this nominations with Ian Tapp and Richard Pryke for the same movie. Resul Pokutty has been a lesser known figure even in India (technicians in Bollywood movie hardly get any limelight Kerela sound mixer Resul Pookutty makes it to the Oscars ) but has been behind the sound of many Bollywood films like Ghajini, Saawariya, Gandhi My Father, Black, Bluffmaster, Dus Kahaniyan, Zinda and many others. He had won the Zee Cine Awards for Best Audiography for the Sanjay Dutt movie Musafir way back in 2004 and had never even had any other nomination since then. But this time around, Resul Pookutty’s hard work and dedication seems to have paid off as he got another nomination too at the prestigious BAFTA Film Award for Best Sound in Slumdog Millionaire and he also made it to the Hollywood’s Cinema Audio Society’s nominations. With all these nominatons, Resul Pookutty seems to have made his definite mark not only in India but internationally too.

Resul Pookutty was very emotional on hearing the nomination and he said he had not expected in the wildest dreams that he would get an Academy Award Nomination. He said it was absolutely unbelievable that he has got an Oscar nomination.

We all Indians wish that Resul Pookutty wins the Oscar too which will not only fulfill his dreams but also give him his due for the hard work he has done in the last 12 years in Indian cinema.
