What do you think of Slumdog millionaire?
 
Of course I do feel sympathy for the poor muslims living in the slums and  we certainly have our dirty landry, but that's our family problem which is of no concern to any other people.
 
Is this movie basically  social po*nagraphy that western people just love to watch and stroke their own ego's among other Indians, or is it a good quality film?

i should say good, it shows some important issues that wouldn't be otherwise shown. the problem is there and by this movie, it can move the government to take certain measures to deal with the problems against discrimination of religions and ethnicity.

GREATClap Hopefully it might force those who think it was "shameful" into some action. SM only portrayed what EXISTS for a whole lot of people in India and the only problem is people like me and you don't care about them because it doesn't affect us directly.

What the HELL is wrong with you?

If Bollywood can depict a movie on discrimination in the US then why can't Hollywood depict poverty in slums in India? If you don't like people up in your business, then don't be up in anyone else's either.  If movies like New York are 'reality' than why can't SDM be thought of the same way? Social po*nography, my butt. Look around you and accept what you see, covering it up doesn't make something go away.
