Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it’s really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I’ll be grateful if you continue this in the future. Many people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!
Folks, my blog is not about Slumdog Millionaire in particular but the obsession of Danny to show selectively dirty holes of our country. Or else he would not have selected the short film Manjha. I have nothing against exposing poverty or ones own reality since my upbringing has been through the films of Ritwik Ghatak, Satyajit Ray, Lankesh, Mrinal Sen, Shyam Benegal among others. But when a film maker from outside India repeatedly chooses to show our poverty before the world, my Indian sentiments are hurt. Certainly I love India more than Danny Boyle does. I loved Manjha and had, on an earlier occasion, profusely thanked Anil for making such a powerful expose. In fact I never questioned Slumdog before this day. When I saw Danny picking once again the crude reality of our slums, I felt he was not being just. Now if thatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s how he wants to go, fine .. its his privileges. But I have mine too. Since we are not playing a ping pong on PFC I would refrain from further replies. After you are entitled to your views too. But in your love for Danny Boyle, I think you all are getting too emotionally crried away and overlook the core issue raised in my blog.
