Slumdog Millionaire

Everyone is talking about the Indian Slumkid movie, Slumdog Millionaire.

We went yesterday evening, and my sisters kid hated it. Not worth for an evening, with a popcorn dinner. Well we compensated with a nice little late night Pulav! (Mom made it!)

What in the hell - the hero slum kid talks with a British accent, unlike Mumbai Desi? Cool!

It is about the typical poor guy with adversities, becoming rich kind of movie.

Anil Kapoor is so madly awesome. The touch was there in a movie called Partner, with Govinda. Now this. Long way to go for an Oscar, if that is what they are talking about. But sincerely I hope that, this is the movie of the season, and atleast get one nice nomination for a better screenplay.

"Who wants to be a Millionaire" is the backdrop (Kaun Banega Crorepati) concocted by an Indian Vikas, with a typical stereotype Indian stylish movie - with the usual masala.

Irony is, the first Crorepati (an IAS aspirant, who failed in it, now in Investment Banking at a decent company in USA) of that show, worked as an intern during his MBA with my company!

Here is some discussion on the movie that I found on the net.
