Slumdog Slamdunk

So, I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire after having wanted to see it before it was even out. Yes, being half-Indian makes me slightly biased, but so be it.  It was a fantastic movie and worth every bit of the hype. I think the story was captivating in how it weaved past and present. I was transfixed.  You will be too, if you haven’t seen it. All of the characters were great – young, old, male, female (most especially the young).  Some of what the main characters witnessed as kids was enough to make me want to turn my head, but I also know that the slums of Mumbai truly exist and that life was well represented on screen.  I hope this movie wins for best movie, director, screenplay and score. It would be well deserved.
