Slumdog Millionaire

or..a Hindi Movie with No Big Dance Number (OK maybe one. At the very end)

or..No Hindi Movie can Resist a Big Dance Number at The End

 

I just had to see for myself what 8 Academy Awards and 4 Golden Globes really look like. Well, it is everything I imagined, everything I hoped for and then some. Slumdog Millionaire tells a modern rags-to-rajah story which appeals to almost everyone. Kids, lovers, cultural enthusiasts, award show buffs, people living in slums, gangsters with guns…

If you follow closely, this movie does have that British feel but the theme and most of the execution sticks true to Bollywood cinema. Brothers? Check. Love? Check. Slums? Check. Rags to Riches? Check. Brother turning into an asshole and stealing your girlfriend? Check. Check. Check. 

With awesome soundtracks like Paper Planes by M.I.A (which in my opinion is the ultimate kid-on-top-of-trains hustler’s anthem),with the fast and breathtaking editing similar to the City of God, with the fantasy montage sequences, Slumdog Millionaire hits it out of the ballpark.

I thank this movie for breaking my heart in the first half of the movie and then gluing that shit back together on the second half, for the kid actors who I heard was really living in slums but are getting the help they need, for Danny Boyle, for Dev Patel, for Freida Pinto. I heart you guys. I identify with this because I’m living in a third world country, and its sadly similar. And I do hope this movie does so much more than glamorize poverty and slums. I hope it raises awareness of things, of everythings. If portrayals of deliberately blinded child beggars and child prostitutes could win 8 Oscars, imagine the drama that is their real life. Their stories could win all the awards, but these slum kids would just sell them by the pound.

Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British film directed by Danny Boyle, written by Simon Beaufoy, and co-directed in India by Loveleen Tandan. It is an adaptation of the novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup.

Set and filmed in India, Slumdog Millionaire tells the story of a young man from the slums of Mumbai who appears on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and exceeds people’s expectations, arousing the suspicions of the game show host and of law enforcement officials.

Out of the ballpark dope. 5.0 out of 5.0

Kid Cudi – Superboo

leave a comment »

It’s almost like, I’m a musical schizophrenic. So I guess today is fresh kid in hip hop week. You surely must have heard of Kid Cudi, he’s been getting a lot of airplay and mentions recently. He’s been featured in Kanye West’s 808 and Heartbreak Album.

Kid Cudi, whose birth name is Scott Mescudi, is a Hip-hop/Electronica artist from Cleveland, Ohio. His musical career and style is centered around one dream, to “Be on the moon”. His first album, a single called “Day N’ Night” was released on iTunes on February 5th, 2008. Currently “Day N’ Night” holds the #2 spot in the UK. Through his premier on iTunes and through word of mouth, his success continues. His debut album will be released shortly, while a mixtape has been released to satisfy the curiosity and thirst of his listeners for more Kid Cudi.

This is the allegedly fan made video for Kid Cudi – Superboo.

Warning for guys: It’ll make you drool.

Warning for ladies: You’d be begging your man to take nude black and white videos of you and start calling you superboo.

This is probably NSFW, unless you work for Hugh Hefner.
