Well, there is a huge hoopla about this movie which accelerated altogether after Golden Globe victories and Oscar nominations. There are even news that Sukhwinder Singh (an Indian singer) will perform a song from the movie which is composed by A.R Rahman and written by Gulzar to begin this year’s Oscar function.
But I loved Slumdog Millionaire because of the sheer power of the plot and story of the film. The movie has no traces of glamor but it still manages to attract so many people and touch so many chords, which is paving its way to success.
The movie is basically about underdogs. People who are deprived of chances and are pushed by their luck to what they become. It is also about love and belief in the happy-ending.
But above all, the movie is about human toiling to achieve what is necessary to live and denounce what is irrelevant, about grabbing opportunities when they come – for whatever reasons – and attenuating the voices that doubt the likelihood of success.
It is about success, when success isn’t a target, which is why I loved it.
You try and succeed, you think you know the game.
You try and fail, you start failing: yourself and those you love.
Success and Failure are positive and negative spirals of mental perceptions, pseudo-scientifically speaking, the delta of change of each of these states is directly proportional to the amount already present in the state of mind.
Hope, appears to be exception-creating-element in this game of spirals: Like a catalyst for change.
