Here we declare that such an instance should be seen as unintentional. While writing this report we have included certain personal opinions and so, it must not be seen as containing derogatory remarks.

Whatever view one takes, it cannot be denied that Slumdog was a great platform for Indian artistes – it got them international acclaim and hopefully opened up doors that were once shut for them. Indian artistes can probably now hope to be taken more seriously in the international market too.
We are of the view that Slumdog Millionaire was but an (slightly) above average movie, and did not deserve the plethora of awards it got. Also, though A.R. Rahman’s music was fantastic, he’s done way better in the past and should’ve probably been recognized for some of his more notable work(though we’re sure he’s not complaining now!). Here we present our view of the movie, the awards it got and why it did or did not deserve them.
