Was impressed and decided to watch it in the theatre..and I came out of the theatre wanting to watch the movie again.. This movie’s case is like the man with a crooked nose....Read More

Slumdog Millionaire vs Q&A
Feb 18, 2009 06:20 PM Read
Very rarely, a movie based on a book is better than its inspiration. Slumdog Millionairebelongs to this rare category. I watched the flick sometime back andthen I got to read the book after it... trust me, the movie came out Ntimes better than the book (N>1). For those, who don’t have a backg...Read More

Meera Nayar is a better poster girl of the story
Feb 14, 2009 04:09 PM Read
Implausible character building. Incredible detailing of the nuances of the character Salim. One will remember Maughm. The movie is another Mumbai story, depicting the predicament of slum people. Development of plot is quite predictable if not repetition of the prior ones. At times, the ...Read More

With lots of hype and publicity –thanks to Golden Globe awards, this movie is running Full-house shows all over India.

A Film about triumph
Feb 11, 2009 02:14 PM Read
Sometimes unattractive and hideous things can also be appealing. 'Slumdog Millionaire' directed by British director Danny Boyle, is a great example of the statement. It stars Dev Patel, Frieda Pinto, Anil Kapoor, Irfan Khan and a bunch of other Indian actors. Everyone who hasn't seen this fil...Read More

Who wants to be a slumdog?
Feb 09, 2009 07:13 PM Read
Who wants to be a Slumdog? My son and I suffered the ignominy of having been stopped by the security guards at the Cinema theater entrance that was screening “Slumdog Millionaire”. The problem was that my son was under aged according to the guards, and the film was rated ‘Adults Only’. After ...Read More

One thing seems to be sure. Films made, whether it's from India, Iran, Turkey, Russia, Portugal, Brazil or wherever which get nominated for Oscars, which come in "Foreign Film Category"have main topics in common "pity - poverty - crime - deaths - cheats - broken winged aspirations". I think some...Read More

Why I think Indians don't like it
Feb 08, 2009 06:27 AM Read
I saw Slumdog Millionaire partly to beat the burning heat outside in Sydney. The cinema hall was mostly full with mostly non-Indians. What a powerful, taut narrative of a story told "like-it-is", with no superman for a hero nor divine intervention. Jamal, Salim and Lathika are so woefully alo...Read More

No word to describe how wonderfull movie it is ???

*The director of this movie had done lot of work ......I mean to say as he is not Indian and also not having any any any resembalance with Slums in India / Mumbai.How can he picturise the things that well. I think the directors like Karan Johar, Aditya Chopra & Suraj Badjatya needs to learn s...Read More

Review on slumdog millionaire
Feb 06, 2009 02:13 PM Read
Slumdog Millionaire is a modern fairytale that takes apredictable journey. However talented director Danny Boyle understands that it isn’t the destination that’s important, it’s the trip itself. With a grim, yet visually fascinating view of the Mumbai, Indiaslums, Boyle hooks you with his int...Read More

An Yester Year Indian Movie Resurrected
Feb 06, 2009 01:09 PM Read
The story in a nutshell: "Slumdog" is a movieabout a boy who is on the verge of winning a game show (on the likes of “KBC”or “I want to be a millionaire”), however the host (who unlike the real life hosts who at least pretend to be super courteous) smells a rat and hands the lead characterove...Read More

Techically Great but Sadistic
Feb 06, 2009 09:49 AM Read
First of all the positives. There is no denying the fact that technically, the movie has been made well. The story, the acting, the editing, the photography, the locations are all wonderful to say the least. Now for the negatives. The movie is more like a documentary highlighting only the wor...Read More

Slumdog Millionaire – A very ‘poor’ film
Feb 04, 2009 04:19 PM Read
As I read Vikas Swarup’s Q & A, his simple conversational style writing and perfectly etched characters brought the novel alive before my eyes. When I finished reading the wonderful book I eagerly awaited the release of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ promising myself that I wouldn’t compare the movie to ...Read More

Hype Justified?
Feb 03, 2009 12:43 PM Read
It is the season of over-hype waves and things working by riding on them. An undeserving “Ghajini” becomes an all-time hit and now we have Danny Boyle’s saga of amchi Mumbai, “Slumdog Millionaire”, sweep awards all across the globe. Though the narrative of a slum-dwelling chaiwalla, Jamal Malik,...Read More

Much Ado About Nothing...
Feb 03, 2009 01:22 AM Read
Much has been made of the rather lukewarm reception here in India to Slumdog Millionaire, America’s most favorite tale of hope (after Obama) currently. A large section of the West seems to think that this might be the result of a relatively more upbeat Indian population (given the current financ...Read More

High fives from me
Feb 02, 2009 10:06 AM Read
I really aplogise for my comments on some reviews written prior to the release of this Movie in Hindi in India. That may due to the irritating word SLUMDOG or the explanation of Indian boy jumping into the filthy pond. On 31st Jan 2009 I took out some time from busy MS gazing schedule. I have...Read More

The Phenomenon called Slumdog Millionaire
Feb 02, 2009 12:07 AM Read
What do you get when a director with a penchant for the grotesque takes the premise of a bestseller, wraps it in the setting from another-bestseller, bastes it with Bollywood flavors, spices it with irresistible visuals & music and rounds toff with a casting that carries off the whole ensemble w...Read More

I have been waiting for the Indian release of slumdog millionaire and got to see it this weekend. I came away quite impressed with the way how a director from another country has brought out the essence of Mumbai and its people. The movie is amazing and is a salute to the spirit of the boy wh...Read More

Improbable instances, but exemplary storytelling
Jan 30, 2009 10:34 AM Read
The word ‘slumdog’ really doesn’t exist, or is it, especially after the movie’s success at getting itself nominated at the academy awards! Probably, the usage has to do with the context of the story that emphasizes fate in the case of a boy from the scum of the society winning twenty million rup...Read More
