Slumdog Millionaire

Many people kept on nagging on me about watching this movie and so I did today!


I thought the movie was a mixture of Indian and American blood but was surprised to see that it's purely Bolywood production. Don't get me wrong, this has nothing to do with the love-ketchup killing-dancing-singing-stereotyped Bolywood movies.


The movie has won many Oscars as far as I heard and it truly deserved it!


People, watch it. It's very intellectual, realistic, and moreover, awesome!

I liked Slumdog but I didn't LOVE it, it was a bit too cheesy for my taste. Not Bollywood cheesy, but stll a bit cheesy.

I went in not knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a really good movie.

Is Seven Pounds that good? I stopped watching Will's movies since the day I saw The Pursuit of Happiness.
I don't know but Slumdog Millionaire made it to my watch-it-over-and-over-movie list! I totally loved it.

Seven Pounds is the movie of the year you can say! I am shocked you didn't like Pursuit of Happiness!

I usually hate Indian movies but this one is so AMAZING. I loved it. Its so heart warming =]
It won 8 Oscars from the 10 it was nominated to. And in my opinion it deserved every one of them. ( I've seen the other nominated movies.. I know what I'm talking about:P)
