Movie is good. First half is brilliant. but second half is a cliche' pile which is shown in every second bad bollywood film. I dont care about weather it portrayed India in bad light or not.I don't even care about the poverty porn stuff either. A film which is filled with cliche and some big plot holes(host talking to contestant ??? wtf??? )winning oscar seriously made me lose my interest in oscars.


agree to this 100%.

but the problem is, these are cliches for all of us who've been used to watching stuff churned out by BOLLYWOOD... but those guys who are the jury at OSCARS wouldn't be as used to it as we are...then one could argue that there were better cliched stuff competing at the oscars... but the problem was that none of them were made by an Amreican and thus were in the running for the "foreign language" category where again our movies had a lot more competition [and probably the jury were also fcuked up watching so many movies so weren't concentrating enough :D]

I think Slumdog was a brilliant movie and deserved at least a couple of Oscars. But 8? I had never expected it sweeping all of those this year. Benjamin Button was also a good movie and could have got a couple more of those awards in my opinion. But certainly, Slumdog deserved at least the best film, director, and song awards, if not more.

IMHO, most of those articles despising Slumdog to the fullest that are popping up now are no more than dirty tricks to catch media attention / popularity. It was not that bad.

I Have A Strong Message To Convey Here.
First Things First. I Dont Watch Movies. Couple Of Movies A Year On An Average.
Do You All Know Why India Is India Today. Majority Of We Indians Dont Have The Attitude To Shine At The Global Stage, Leave Alone Have The Talent To Do It. Some Indians Who Do Have The Talent Are Bogged Down By People Who Make Stupid Remarks, Media Being The Frontrunner. Very Few Understand That More Than 80% Of The Media Channels Are So Below Average That They Need To Stoop Dirty Low To Get Into The Limelight. Thus The Talented Shaded Away And Phased Out.

Are you running a script to capitalize each word's starting letter?:confused: I completely agree with the OP.

The judges probably didn't review the other nominated movies before selecting this for Best Picture I guess :rolleyes:

Mahatma Gandhi never won The Nobel Peace Prize. even though he won our freedom with peace. Why? Indians will never get recohnised in the world stage :p David Boyle being an Americano, won the oscars but had the same movie being directed by an indian, would just get some nominations. How blatantly the Oscars went to this stupid movie is beyond my level of thinking.

Although I agree to the fact that SM didn't really deserve to win the award for the best movie, I still think that somehow had it really been an Indian movie, not many people in India would be complaining right now.

I also think for some it might be a classic case of the 'grapes are sour' syndrome. Indians have been making films in India on Indians with Indians since ages but hardly managed to win anything. And then suddenly this British guy comes along and does basically the same thing and instantly gets an award for it.

Then again it's just what I think.

^^you seriously need to watch some good Indian movies dude. I have seen many movies including other language ones with subtitles but this movie was merely a hollywoodish presentation of an Okish Bollywood movie.

Grapes are not sour but you are on the wrong ivy.
