Amitabh vs. Slumdog


Amid myriad critical acclaim, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has apparently made some disparaging comments about the Danny Boyle movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE via his blog:

"If 'Slumdog Millionaire' projects India as Third World dirty underbelly developing nation and causes pain and disgust among nationalists and patriots, let it be known that a murky underbelly exists and thrives even in the most developed nations"

He knocks out a couple more pearls that you can check out over HERE. However, to be fair to Bachchan, I can't find the actual blog and some of the comments on the article indicate that his comments were taken out of context. It's interesting I think, that even such a beautiful movie can't make everyone happy. The important thing to acknowledge though is that I wasn't asked to do a list of my favorite movies for the year for the site and since SLUMDOG was one of them this gives me ample excuse to throw one out now. I know you guys have been waiting for this!

UPDATE! HERE is Amitabh's blog. Check it out and make up your own mind.
Extra Tidbit: 1. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, 2. LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, 3. THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD, 4. BEN BUTTON, 5. WALL-E, 6. TDK
