Slumdog Millionaire vs Australia

Call me outdated but finally I have managed to watch Slumdog Millionaire last week, thanks to a nearby pirated DVD shop. I really heart this shop and best of all the shop is only walking distance from my house! I thought relating Jamal's life to all the answers in Who Wants to be A Millionaire's show is quite a clever and refreshing.

Dev Patel and Anil Kapoor

My favourite scene has to be the part when Salim, Jamal's brother locked Jamal in the toilet so he did not get to see Amitabh Bachan. Jamal who so want to see Amitabh Bachan actually took a dive inside the toilet bowl (mind you this is an outdoor toilet) and at last got to meet his hero. All dirty and smelly covered in shit of course. Kehkeh.

Unlike the usual Hindi movie with all those dancing and singing, this one only limit the singing and dancing to the ending and that's that. I really like this movie and I think it deserves every single Oscar that it won plus so many other awards. I also don't get it why people want to make a fuss of the name Slumdog. Some said the 'dog' is not necessary and downgrading, but then if you think again, there's also hotdog and underdog and it does not even refer to a dog. I mean can you imagine if the movie title is Slum Millionaire? Tak cukup dramatik lah. Haha.

By the way speaking of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, I remember watching once the Malaysian version where they have Misha Omar (yes the singer!) on the show. Jalaluddin Hasan, the host asked her something like what do you call a "Duta" in English which of course means an ambassador. But she did not even know what is it. And I thought it is quite embarassing. Hehe. I mean it's not like somebody asked her the history of the nation or something. But then, nervous kot (bersangka baik). Haha.

Oh yes I also watched Australia, and this movie sucks! I got to agree with one review who said that the only thing worth watching in Australia (the movie) is the scenery in that movie. Haha. Too bad, since it could have been much more better.
