Slum Dog Millionaire won Oscar for many categories including for best director, best original song, best music director, and best sound mixing. The film directed by Danny Boyle really worth applause? I am afraid the slum dog may create a bad impression on India especially for non Indians. Danny, you could have done better if you try to portrait one single shot that truly depicts the glory and financial strength, and harmony of India. Any one cannot deny slums in India and the Dharavi, the slum for which the slum dog millionaire was based a real one. Being the second populated country in the world, India definitely struggles to provide comfortable shelter for every one. But the shelter problems are not as pathetic as shows in the Oscar winning slum dog millionaire. Slum dog millionaire won Oscar only because the film was directed by a British Director? The film would get so much attention and praise if it was directed by any of Indian? The film itself questions the credibility of Oscar Academy that forgot to grand Oscar award for Charlie Chaplin, the greatest actor ever born.
It is a fact that Slum dog millionaire is not the greatest film ever made based on India. Just read what Amitab Bachan had written in his blog on slum dog millionaire. It is unfortunate that Amitab changed his mind after few days.
“This is a movie against India & its pride. The British director has shown how India is a horrible country. AR Rahman is a party to that British director, who together want to show our poverty, humiliation and child labor of India. This movie has some shameful scenes- kid jumping in pond of shit, people removing eyes of kids, elders Indian abusing kids, etc. The European and Western world is amused to see how pathetic country is India as portrayed by British director and AR Rahman. They want to give many awards to this movie to keep this dirty image of India alive. They have never chosen our earlier movies or Oscar. But the jury liked this particular move that shows how India is a cave age country. We should reject these awards and ban this movie”.
Just forgot the opinion of ban and the comments made on the greatest musician A R Rahman. There is no meaning for criticizing A R Rahman for cooperating in the film. A R Rahman deserved Oscar today or tomorrow.
Danny Boyle only portrayed the negative factors of India in slum dog millionaire. The film is a good entertainment for movie fanatic and for serious time killers. But slum dog millionaire has already hurt the feelings of many Indians. Please don;t think that we all are such a cruel people who abuse children. Yes there are criminals in the society like in any other countries of the world. Anyway congratulation for winning 7 grand Oscars…………………….
What are the roles of Indians in slum dog millionaire for winning Oscar?
The music of slum dog millionaire is simply superb that helped Mr. A.R Rahman for achieving two Oscar award. A.R Rahman became the first Indian to win two Oscar awards. In fact he is the first Indian to win an Oscar.
Resul Pookutty became the first Kerala man to win an Oscar and first Indian to win the prize from the category of sound mixing. The very highlight of slum dog millionaire is its special sound effects. The man from a kerala village stunned many by winning his career best award.
