Slumdog

I finally saw it! Yes, I must be the last person I know to see this movie. I did enjoy Slumdog Millionaire, but I was quite surprised how heartbreakingly sad it was! The main characters did a phenomenal job, I was especially impressed with the young Jamal and Frida Pinto. Given everyone's rave reviews I hadn't expected it to be such an emotional roller-coaster of a movie.

I did especially enjoy the Bollywood dance routine during the film's credits. I've heard the now famous song "Jai Ho" before, as it won a zillion Academy Awards, but it had a renewed novelty to me hearing it with the dance sequence. On a side note - did you know the Pussycat Dolls remixed this song? Yes indeed, (now, don't laugh at me) they played it at the Britney concert, complete with an Indian motif and attire...it was great! Have a listen, what do you think?
