Add: All the major evildoers except the rioters in the movie were muslims, be it his brother, mamman or Javed Khan.
Brother Muslim evildoer turns good in the end.... yes he namazed regularly ... so he redeemed himself ? hehehe. The other evildoer is not a "good muslim" so he dies dogs death. He always indulged in unislamic things like womanizing, consuming liquor, betting and other evil things. All Hindus were bad. Not once they showed muslims rioting.

Chitrala bhai !! Comon ... tell me what message is the movie giving out? I am not asking "Moral of the story". They won over Americans by showing an American couple hand over a 100$ bill to persecuted downtrodden humiliated poor boy.

Now coming to the point of argument, " fatalistic Hindu philosophy" ? Well, there are fatalistic people, not fatalistic religion. Sorry boss, no agree wit u. Karmayoga is the biggest refute one can give for your statement. Sorry, I am not getting into this anymore.... Landya will run after me.... holding sutras in his hands.

I wont be surprised if that biyatch Meera Nair and her types are somehow related to this film.
Totally with you on mainstream movies. Though i am not with all those Karan Chopra Hakla movies, but let the market decide.

One thing i realized those days was that these oscars are also shitty like the filmfare awards. AR Rahman got an oscar for this. Now this song, though good was just another Rahman song. His numbers in Roja and 'Thiruda thiruda' were far better.

Coming to Mira Nair, i did like Salaam Bombay, but after all the rave reviews the peaceful main guy ended up as an Autowallah.

Spot on. Only other qualification is that it has to be made by a firang. Else all the art walahs would have won oscars!

ARR is past his best. Nothing after Roja, Bombay stays with you. Cant remember even one memorable composition from him after the 90s

That differentiation is only in Pak and would not hold through the rest of the world. Nobody gives a shit about what those mofos think. But knowing hakla, he would want to use that differentiation

BTW, who gives a fuck about Paki constitution? Does their army itself respect it?

The star of Dr Zhivago, Omar Sharif is also a peaceful guy. Will check on whether he ever won an oscar.

He has not won although he was nominated. He died recently.
