Slumdog Millionaire

Despite focusing very hard to ignore the hype, the movie disappointed. Came across as a regular Bollywood movie with the customary sentimentality and tactless script. However, with the slick production and some reasonable performances, makes it a reasonable watch. But thats about it really. No comparison to some other great films in the genre. Like a friend said - its got no soul.

Rating: * *

Chutiya film! Frankly I was bored after 45 minutes. Found the English speaking by desi cops and cheri boys to be annoying as hell. The whole relationship between Latika and Jamal was unrealistic and pathetic. The acting was krap all round. Freida Pinto is yet another poster child for how far a pretty face can take you!
