As you know I rarely talk about movies on my blog, but Slumdog Millionaire is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long, long time. The story and cinematography are unmatched, the dynamic story is about an impoverished boy from the slums that wins millions – an underdog story. The true underdog of this movie is director Danny Boyle, for an outsider to come into India, a country that produces more movies then anyone else, and create such a quality product is a story by itself. Of course, Bollywood is now trying to jump on the Slumdog bandwagon but make no mistake this movie was made because they all stayed away. Director Karan Johar has stated his formula for creating movies is what NRI’s (non-resident Indian’s) like, in reality it’s just sugar coated garbage.
The Oscar nominee list will be available on Jan 22 and seeing that Slumdog just sweeped 4 awards during the Golden Globes they have a shot at an Oscar.
Slumdog gets released in India on Jan 23, if you can wait you can download the torrent file.
