Slumdog Millionaire (Destined to Love It!)

Finally! I've been dying to watch the movie Slumdog Millionaire and fortunate was I that my friend has a (pirated) copy of it. Yipee!

As most of us probably know already, it's about a young guy who joined Who Wants To Be A Millionaire to find the girl he loves. He eventually won the game, as the questions posed on him were, for some twisted reason, all connected to his twisted life. But being an uneducated, (tea vendor) that he is, many suspected him to be a cheat. But in the end, the truth prevailed, he became 20 million Rupees richer, and he's with the girl he's destined to be with.

Love and Destiny.

Two of the loveliest words for me. Isn't it liberating to think that the one you truly love will always be with you no matter what because you are both written to be with each other? Ugh, I'm getting cheesy now. LOL. Although I have a slightly different take on destiny (I believe the WE make our own destiny), I still find it nice to think that there's a force that pulls us together and brings us to the one rightful for us. That everything was written right at the start.

After the film, I was left but smiling. I loved every bit of it (the dance number in the end was fun! haha). It just became number 2 (next to Titanic) on my list of all-time favorite movies.

Love India!

Saw it three times already (na-download lang ng kasama namin from Torrent). Kahit noon pa, alam ko malaki ang chance nya sa Oscars. Ganda ng music no?

Dalawang beses ko tong napanood. Ang galing ng writer. Meron din akong ginawa na post tungkol sa slumdog. Kahit maliit lang ang budget kung magaling ang plot, can't stop it from getting to the top. :-)

This movie will just not escape me! :) I've yet to see it but I keep hearing great things, I suppose I need to just hop on the bandwagon. Isn't it a musical or something of the like though? Hmm, I suppose I'll just see it some time this week.

You have a nice blog yourself :) Keep up the good work! Thanks for the post.

Badong said...

It's actually not a musical,but the end part showcases a dance number. Thanks for the comment!

it's visually filthy for me...

Badong said...

Visually filthy? well, yeah, considering that it is a low budget film. But nevertheless, the story in itself is brilliant.
