The Artist, the silent movie sensation which has been sweeping awards this season, is all set to release in India on February 17.

The film is also a strong contender at the Oscars this February.

The black-and-white French romance, starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo, is a tribute to the cinema of 1920s and 30s.

The film by Michel Hazanavicius focuses on a declining male film star and a rising actress, as silent cinema grows out of fashion and is replaced by the talkies.

Most of the part of this black and white film is silent. Dujardin won the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe trophy for his performance.

It has already clinched 12 Bafta Nominations besides winning three Golden Globe trophies.
