Is the main character or the director a Muslim? If yes, then no doubt you will get rave reviews

Is the movie about India's slums and poverty and the social problems? If yes, then this film might win Oscars!

Re: Slum dog Millionaire

This is supposed to be the "Hinglish: genera film. The subject, I believe is not directly related to race and slum, but from what I read, story line may touch those areas...

These shitty film festivals and 'film critics' only commend films which always show the shitty side of things.

Not a single masala movie wins any recommendations despite the fact that its the mainstream cinema which entertains and brings joy to the majority.

I wont be surprised if that biyatch Meera Nair and her types are somehow related to this film.

Plot looks interesting. Just depends on how well made the movie is.

Well, thats because world is a shitty place. For popular movies there are oscars and filmfares. If the criterion for awards will be joy to the mainstream then marriage video/photo-graphers would get all the awards for photo/video journalism.
Just because Chopra/Johar or whoever is a good filmmaker, it does not mean that Nair is a bad one...I liked monsoon wedding immensely...

Cha, the story is about patel guy from poor class family wins millions by wining the show like "Kon banega crorepati". In one night patel's total life changes from rages to riches. the anchor role in the show has been played by Zakkas fame Anil kapoor. so though movie is hollywood it has indian bollywood connection .

Thumbs up Slum Dog Millionaire

Excellent movie.
Check it out. Overall, well directed and a lot of it is sad but true. Dun wanna give away more until you guys watch it. Its playin in AMC etc. now, so charchu,natvik...give it a watch.

Here's the wiki on it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slumdog_Millionaire
"Jamal Malik, former street child from Mumbai, is being interrogated by the police. He is a contestant on Kaun Banega Crorepati, the Hindi version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, and has made it to the final question but has been accused of cheating. Jamal insists that he did not cheat but knew the answers to all questions except the last, and he answered the last question right paradoxically because he was fed the wrong answer, thought it was right but refused to cheat.
The explanation of how he knew the answers leads us through the history of his life."

Re: Slum Dog Millionaire

Mira Nair is the biggest biyach who always shows poverty and the darker side of Mumbai or India in general and then wins awards.

I am not denying our poverty and problems, but just exposing that to the world is sadly considered making 'intelligent cinema'
