Well, Indian cinema finally arrives at big stage, Slumdog has won 8 Oscars for Best Film, Best director, Best Music and what all… , time for celebration is not it !?.
Before the award ceremony began i was silently praying this film not to get even a mention at the Oscars. I was watching one of the shows in DD yesterday (yes you heard right DD national !), one of the guests when asked about what’s so special film Slumdog Millionaire and what's the edge it has over other films, he rightly said the only edge this film has is that its directed by an foreign Guy, how true !, can anybody even imagine the same film directed by an Indian director even getting an wink at Oscars ??.
May be i am not that good at Music, but you don't have to be a music maestro to tell that that Music given by Rehman for this film, was very average compared to some master pieces he has composed !.
Back to euphoria that has been created over this film by our Indian new channels, i think these news channel people are nothing but scum bags. switch to any news channel and the only news these days (yes, The Mumbai fiasco is all but forgotten), is that how India is shining at global stage by getting 8 Oscars !!, can't they even think what they are telling, for whatever gods sake, Boyle could have made this movie only by involving the Indian People & to get the authenticity he wanted (Read picturesque slums of Mumbai), how can we even think that we can take credit for this ?.
Well, to conclude its really a sorry state of affairs all these hue and cry over this non-Indian Film, i feel like some body just used my people like a tissue paper to wipe up their arse and we still feel proud about it, because it was an English toilet.
Jai Ho India !, PBSK
