ok ok..no offences…I hope this title of post will get along with your thinking..well what to say..these days..we all are bitten by this slumKutta..ummm..this sounds a bit rowdy..sluuumm..kutttaaaa..okk..lets convert it to english version..Slum dog….yeah thats better now..but why??? are English hai bhai…and we are the flag bearers of queens language since ages.. but why Slumdog??? are yarr come on..Slum comes from slum dweller and dog comes from underdog…bole to ban gaya Slumdog…bhow bhow..it barks as well…chill yaar..no more abstracting on this post..the day I saw Slumdog Millionaire not even in my remotest dream there was a possibility to blog about it..but still here I am writing and trying to make some sense out of this euphoria which has sweeped away almost all the awards on this earth…but frankly speaking I don’t give a damn to these accolades this typical masala movie is receiving all over the world..(who cares about me giving a damn 😉 )..I just don’t understand that why we Indians are so hungry for getting publicity in eyes of the west..why we have this feeling of proving that..” Boss we have arrived on the global map..”..sometimes I feel that what these gora log might be thinking about us..(I know another typical Indian characteristics of giving sh** about what others are thinking ) that one award (read OSCAR) which for them is just like any other function..converts to a do or die situation for an educated Indian, so much so that we all are glued to our source of information to keep us updated about each and every action of celebrities on the day of the Oscar.
What I want to say is that when this hunger of ours will die of proving our self at par with the west..why we keep running after their recognitions..oooops..this happens when you become too much fundebaaaz..;)..let me write about apna SlumKutta…well I seriously feel that there is some problem in right part of cerebral hemisphere :P..of these firangis..movies like Laagan, Tare Zameen par, Shwas looses out just at the doorstep and movies like SM goes on to as much as 8 bullshit trophies…for some bullshit stuffed in form of a movie termed as some revolutionary story about India’s slum life..Mr Rahman got Oscar for Jai ho..and trust me I have never heard such a cacophonous number being doled from this adulated music director..I am not trying rob of him of his achievements..but still there were much better work done by AR as compared to this crap number..I know SDM team is basking in this glory of Oscars..but speaking from my heart as an Indian..we have already seen such average movies since ages..if not in one flick then in different takes from different directors…but kya kare after all hum hai Indians hi na..just take a look…
Mr A.- Yarr SDM to kya Fu**all movie hai…faltu mein sub itna shor macha rahe hai..
Mr B- but yar SDM ko to Oscar award mil gaye….!!!
Mr A- What!!! tub to movie sahi hai yarr..actually mujhe thoda samajh nahi aayi us time..
this is what happening..but boss trust me..I have never seen such an over hyped crap movie that too winning 8 Oscars…
I know many of you will loathe me..will bash me..about saying so bad about this “Feel good movie of the decade”…but can’t help it..boss India hai..democracy hai..:) God bless us….JAI HO
