slumdog millionaire


Okay, i was already planning on watching 'Slumdog Millionaire' before they got all famous-y and things. But, after reading so much about them today i thought i had to watch it sooner. Usually, the movies that tend to win awards are the shittiest of them all - but i have to say this one was an exception. the opening line already got me intrigued - 'How did Jamal Malik become a millionaire?... is he a) lucky b) a cheat c) a genius d) it is written'. I have always loved indian movies, or movies made in india, or those with indian actors/actresses in them. They are so effortlessly beautiful. even the slummest of slums are beautiful to look at, somehow. In ways that they say so much - you get pulled in and want to know the story behind them all. The life story of Jamal Malik is really about a boy who follows his heart; because he wasnt given many choices in life. Most of us, on the other hand, are spoilt for choice. And then we complain and whine over not being able to choose. Hmm, sounds like me.

Lovely movie - and Dev Patel, you have given Shah Rukh Khan a kick in the ass. Ahh! change is good :)
