(AFTER SWEEPING OSCARS, "SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE
CREATES INDIA AS BRAND)
simply, I cannot stop from writing today.
The scene about the boy coming above from shit hole..
He has seen as a shit piece of a scene..one sees, what one sees.
What I have seen in that scene ...
Here is a boy, who, born in such filth, does not lack in his whims and fancies..
He wants and wishes for an autograph of his fav. movie idol and no one can stop him from catching hold of it..
So he sinks into -----, and emerge from it..
Here the boy's character is established, not only a boy from english speaking LKG_UKG school, but a boy from slums can also wish for his dream idols autograph.
He achieves this, with such determination.. that is the scene.. director's intentions..
and landing in Agra, it shows, Boys from slums have no tickets, no boundaries, India is so large, they travel miles and on trains to land anywhere..where the trains take them..
Did we not see, chai vending boys travelling in trains from one end to another end?
History, they did not learn in any schools, so they used their imagination.
And talking about hard working, earning millions..
KBK is an authentic show on popular TV, where pupils, people from best backgrounds, pour over books, take classes and enter into this show to get instant popularity, fame and lots of money.. there is nothing wrong in it..
Only, when a chai wala, as uttered by the anchor aims for it, it became lazy, crazy thing to do.
But our jamal, is already working in a call center, and being street smart, he picked all the naunces of english language and he used every opportunity to reach his latika, but not to deceit anyone..
It did not show call centers in any bad light, it is any working place..
His aim is to reach latika, not to earn krores, but in that process, he achieves that too.
As in any movie story, lucky is the hero.
Director did not say that, hero did not know gandhiji, but he had not seen a thousand rupee note.
we are overly sensitive to see red in any innocent thing..
and about police.. police picked him on the complaint of anchor , that jamal may be deceiving them, by wiring himself or inserting some remote things.. in his ----. so he is searched and questioned in the police way to get the truth..
On this note, the movie starts unfolding.. as the police question him in the usual good cop, bad cop way, the hero starts telling the story to good cop.
Even the hero is unsure of his luck, how he has answered all the Qs correct.. so he is reliving them and sharing them out to some one near him.. the good cop..
The neat editing, racing script, the evil way, one brother has chosen, the good, the hero has chosen, the conflict, the acceptance of reality, but wanting for more, dare to dream.. these are all the ingredients of this movie..
So please folks, come to reality and accept that India is great.. but some things we have to accept and shd. not be critical of them who say so.
enough of defending this movie..
we accept it or not, Academy has accepted it, that makes it..
Try to make an INdian, glorifying movie acceptable for Academy, next year.. or keep trying to make good movies..
