Slumdog Millionaire- the winner

Slumdog Millionaire won four Golden Globe awards today, a movie which made me come out of the cinema hall hanging my head down. The picture of India portrayed in the movie is probably a reality, but an outsider, filming and flashing only the dark side of the Indian society and comparing the so called REAL india with the great other countries (literally in the movie) just could not allow me to appreciate the movie. In any case, I was proud as it won the best music original score award. I am proud not because Slumdog Millionaire won the award but an Indian won the award. Congrats! A.R. Rahman.

That's right it was slum in the beginning but you may have noticed it does change when Salim point towards high rise building as says there used to be a slum once.

This film was based on a book wrote by an Indian, and music composed by India and both got appreciation, I see that way.
