hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Yup you guessed it right! I AM humming to this song in Slumdog Millionaire: 'Latika Theme'. I loved the movie. I actually fell in love with Dev Patel but I think the credit should go to everyone who was involved directly/ indirectly in making of this movie. I am a big book buff, so I will definitely read the book and get back with the review. Now back to the movie.

It is no wonder that it has done so well everywhere in the world and that we Indians were eagerly awaiting the premiere what with our buddies telling us the story after seeing the pirated version. The songs, the music, the direction, the acting, screenplay, diaogues were simply brilliant! I couldn't spot one tiny, minuscule flaw in the movie.

What I simply, totally fail to understand is, what the hell is wrong with everybody? If you didn't like the movie that much 'cuz you thought it was a leetle depressing its definitely understandable. NOT when you say its an insult to Indians or we are being projected as beggars or an underdeveloped third world nation crap. I am sorry but whatever was shown in the movie was shown as a matter-of-fact "I was born in the slums and this is how my life was". There are slums, so there ARE slums! No one can do anything about, yes unless and until the stupid wannabe critics are ready to do something. It was a simple story, told very simply in a matter-of-fact-and-its-the-truth-what-the-hell-will-you-do-about-it.

Final verdict: Get yur arse right there to the movie theatre and see the harsh truth and fall in love with everyone.
oh yes! and also start believin in your destiny. I am taking time to believe in mine though 'cuz its so weird, its unbelievable!

Thankfully that movie released there... Its THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!! and i hav been forcing everyone in India to go watch it... so glad u loved it as much as i did... but yeah guys whoeva thinks its an "Indian Movie" dont give the credit to India for it... its with the help of Indian s but its a British cast and crew... But i love the movie.. hope it gets all the Oscars... Go SLumdog...

I liked the movie too, but I have to say I wasnt swept away.

Loved the music though - if the music doesnt win at the Oscars I'd be quite upset. AR Rahman rocks!
