Slumdog Millionaire - run of a lifetime !!

First, its a nice movie.
Second, to all the desi lovers, what it is shows, is the truth, except for one or two disgusting scenes (even if it were the truth).
- the kid jumping into the shit hole (it was humorous nonetheless)
- people on the street watching as a man was on fire on the street (not ALL indians are heartless, specially when he is already far away from the mob).
Third, an Oscar & Golden Globe award, doesnt mean it is the best.
Fourth, its not any different from Deewar or some similar bollywood masala movie. Only thing missing was the punch line - "tere paas kya hai?", "mera paas computerji ke liye answers hai"
Last, why would i read out the question to my friend of a lifetime... when you know fully well that she like you probably never went to school. And if this was relevant to your life like the movie shows, i would re-write the phone-a-friend dialogue to "Hello! Hello!! Kaun? Lathika? How are you?........ Acha, what would your name be if you were the third musketeer, arthos, parthos aur ??"

Thanks. It was a nice movie. But just that. Lets not get carried away.
