Slumdog has bagged 8! That's nice!. But better movies have been made. I will watch the movie and give my opinion. One thing I don't have any doubt about is AR Rehman. That guy always creates magic. He deserves it.  I think you should first watch the film & then comment. No one here claims that it is the best film ever. But It is one of them, IMO.


Lolz... I know, Liza.... but I'm eager to comment and I have no means to watch it right now. I understand it's very wrong but I promise it won't happen again. Do you think I can be forgiven? Smile

Another thing that was interesting fact about the Oscars 2009 is that Sean Penn was the only American-born actor that won (at least in the main categories).  I think the best screenplay writer went to an American born and I'm not sure about Benjamin Button people....I'm assuming they are American born.....

Its kind of amazing how people in India get so worked with minor details but actually ignore how close to reality the initial part of the movie is. And the story was written by Vikas Swarup, whom the entire nation is falling over themselves to cling to
 
1. There is a peice about the kids in the movie made to learn three musketeers. HAve these so called analysts forgotten the Indian education system that makes you read all these insane far-off irrelavant to India culture things that have zero value in real life(except maybe these quizes and game show hosts?) Nowhere in real life does what Hamlet say important that those quiz shows. So it was an interesting dig at the Education system there
2. There is an incident about the Can, come-on if you have travelled on those early morning locals on central or harbor lines you get to see those types of CANSLOL and well the fascination of stars is so legendary that the "incident" doesnt sound that crazyWink
3. The eye spooning incident. Ever wonder how so many of the kids who are beggars turn out to be blind or have physical deformity?
4.Ok how much is the likelihood in India(the land of great culturesWink)that a monkey comes to snatch a chappati and you would let him go saying he is God's avatar, but when a beggar kid tries to steal you will actually push him out of a running train
 
Yup you can always concentrate on how the kids miracalously learnt englishLOL
 
An analyst of Bollywood movie complaining that the script has such kind of flaws must have have some unique cocktail of liquor before penning such an articleWink
 

How many CHAI-WALAS or of same background with no formal education(at least paanchvi or aathvi pass) have become a millionaire or close to become a millionaire in the real "Kaun Banega Kadorepoti" show? How close is that to reality? You say the "how close to reality the initial part of the movie is". What's the initial concept/highlight - "the poor becoming rich through KBC" or the "poverty/child po*n/beggar industry"? The first one surely does not look to me close to reality, second one does exist. So it's clear what the intention was of the storyteller and the moviemaker.

 A fictitious flawed movie focused on the some dark sides of third world society to woo the west added with bollywood spice for freshness. That's it!

Only "JAI HO" to Rehman.
 If you would have seen the movie you would have realized the fact(actually he goes on to state it like 5-6 times) I know these answers just b'cos of this, I have no clue what it means. To make it simple for people who  did not follow it he gave an example, Look I know there is a Benjamin Franklin on a $100 note, b'cos a life changing  incident in my life made me realize that. But there was no life changing incident in my life pertaining to a 1000 rupee note, so I dont know who is a 1000 rupee note.
 
The one thing that made me smirk with disbeleif was that a contestant is hauled out in the middle of a game show to be tortured and is asked how come he a chaiwalah knows these answers. This thread kind of proves anything is possibleWinkLOL

@bold - one of the short and sweet summary... and guess what the people who feel this movie to be potrayal of dark side and shear exploitation....  are termed as ??? pessimistic NEGATIVE peopleLOL...DARK SIDE = Optimism???? ConfusedConfused LOL there should be a bigger Oscar  for pessimistic negative people thenLOLLOLLOL  In all i can just say...good for British Film industry..HELL NO this is NOT an Indian movie... this movie somehow reminds me of Kashif Memom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbkhgljO2Dc&feature=related) and LOL on the studio audience.
