Guess the Celeb

Who am I?

I am actress, still trying to make my foothold strong in Bollywood. I had made a debut in Bollywood in 2004 but that went unnoticed and I moved on to south industry.

Slumdog Millionaire, does it deserves what it got?

Description: I really dont bother much on what is being portrayed on the movie. At the end of the day its a movie and if we can tolerate the frequent dreaming dances of Madhuri in Alaska wearing chiffon in -20 deg, whats the harm in a lil bit exaggeration of slum reality in India.

    What pings me most is that this movie made a strong scar in Indian movie history, which I feel it noway deserves. Ppl will be discussing this movie, considering it to be a Hindi/bollywood movie std, and thats where my objection and worry goes. AR Rehman and Gulzar have produced much better results from their creative sense, I pity on them that they made their esteemed position in Indian movie history with such a bad baton.

    It has happened in the past (Ppl say the english translation of Geetanjali is the worst Tagore work ever, which got him a noble prize). This movie also reminded me of the naked empowerment of the so called international brands on the Miss world kinda eyewash competitions of beauty (and brains??????). Priyanka chopra didn't have the patience to listen the question carefully asked, mentioned Mother Teresa as the living idol for her (died at least 3 yrs before) and still did get away with the crown. I doubt any decent Management school will allow this kinda mistakes in PIs or not. What to do, the International brands (sponsoring the event) were in need of a Indian brand ambassador to popularize their brands in India. They really couldn't afford to get the crown to anybody but an Indian contestant, just for the callousness of a petty model, and they knew that anybody raising this issue in India will be dubbed as an non-patriot, and they will be taken care of internally.

    I strongly believe India has got Internationally recognizable talents, but when I see ppl basking the 'Indian' glory in situations which actually droop our heads down, I feel pity on myself. I dont have a problem my kid deserving the first position of the class and still getting denied of that by politics, but I have a real problem in getting my kid the first position when he doesn't deserve it. Perhaps this is what happening in Indian entertainment community for quite a good time to catch the massively populated (and hence large) entertain mkt of India in a very planned manner. Perhaps we should feel lucky that 'Tashan' kinda movies are not able to buy out Acadamy award nomination. May be future has that in her womb too for us, I mean we Indians. So i am unhappy that several movie marvels didn't make it to academy level, but I deeply regret the unsuccessful success of Gulzar and Rahman.....They had better works in their kitty to walk on the red carpet for sure, but they will be remembered and talked the most for very ordinary performances of them.

    Arnab, let it be. Why are you so angry with Slumdog? Am happy for Sean Penn and Milk, too.

    I feel happy for Resool Pookutty, Rahman and the other members in team. Think of the children from the slum, whose life has changed forever due to this film. Its no less than a dream for them. :-)

    Arnab, good that you raised the topic! Its true that SM is just an ordinary movie (by the film-making standards that is) to the ordinary masses of Indian movie goers who literally hog fantasy driven Bollywood movies. But SM has also opened the doorway for many people waiting to cross the bridge. Yes, AR Rehman has done much more better songs than SM but whats wrong if they are better than the current competion that it faced? You must note that SM got a weaker opposition in the race. So it dazzled. its not Slumdog Millionair, Danny Boyle, or AR Rehman's fault...

    Sometimes its all Luck By Chance!

    Pritam, I am not angry with SDM, I have seen inferior movies earlier. But I dont feel happy for Gulzar or Rahman, Regarding another person, I have nothing to say....I wud be much more happy if the life of the slum children were changed in some other way, this is perhaps the worst which happened to them. Hope they really make use of it to change their and others' life in slums

    @Arnab, we are talking about a film, and not socialism or politics. Come on!

    The film is supposed to entertain. Talk about one good movie, which has changed life of slum children in your own way.

    Pritam, if not some slum children, u will always find some movies changing the life of some ppl, And thats what I was saying, no socialism or politics. The movie is not of a Oscar cadre, it is neither entertaining, nor a thot product, it is not a movie which can qualify to be discussed even, its a typical portray of 200 yr old British look towards India. I am sorry if i sound racist, but thats what I do feel about the movie. As I have mentioned earlier, the making of the movie doesn't irk me, but its entry in academy stage does.

    I think even a movie like THE READER [at least as far as my opinion goes] doesnt deserve to be a movie of an Oscar calibre but still KATE WINSLET walks away with the BEST ACTOR award only for her sensitive acting part !!!

    I agree with Arnab hundred percent.There have been many good movies in the past but were never nominated for Oscar....Slumdog ..got its recognition only because of Danny Boyle and the other foreigners involved...to prove my point the movie Elizabeth got an Oscar for the best movie but Shekhar Kapoor(the director) did not get any recognition....is this not racism? The slum children have suddenly seen so much glory and fame ...of course we are all happy for them ...but will they not expect this kind of success always ...what if they do not get any role in the movies?...what if they are not successful?
