Slumdog Millionaire and Its Criticism

personally i loved the movie Slumdog Millionaire, But i dont understand why its getting such criticisam from indian schoolers.

One of the writer Sudip Mazumdar of Newsweek wrote:

“People keep praising the film’s ‘realistic’ depiction of slum life in India. But it’s no such thing. Slum life is a cage. It robs you of confidence in the face of the rich and the advantaged. It steals your pride, deadens your ambition, limits your imagination and psychologically cripples you whenever you step outside the comfort zone of your own neighborhood. Most people in the slums never achieve a fairy-tale ending.”  Link

These are very disturbing remarks. Auther has compared his story with Slumdog millionaire and try to create a picture that people from slum dont go anywhere. Then how come he writing for Newsweek?

Yes,slum steal your pride , but it also gives you ability to understand what real pride is!

Yes, slum deadens your ambition, but it help you to set some realistic ambitions!

yes, Its limits your imaginations, But its also you to understand what is the real problem and ability to answer those in most effective way!

No , Slums dont cripples you , Rather slum always remind you that there are so many things that need to be changed in your neighborhood whenever you steps outside.

Most people in the slums never achieve a fairy-tale ending , Yes. But they atleast make sure next generation leaves better life than they have lived.

  1. A middle class person cannot realistically comment on the life experience of someone in a slum. It is always an outsider looking in. Making a counter point for every point is a much easier exercise IMHO.

    There were many situations where the author’s run could have ended badly but for sheer luck. He was one of the lucky few who got the breaks, took them and got away.

    Some rise, some fall. That is the way of life. Those who rise can be blinded to the luck that played a part. If failure is hard to carry, success is even harder. The former leaves no choice but to bear, the latter can leave one careless to one’s good fortune.

  2. DUDE THIS WAS NOT A documentary IT WAS A BLOCKBUSTER HIT, YOU NEED A STORY INSIDE OF A MOVIE NOT JUST THE DESCRIPTION OF THE STREETS, IF YOU WANTED A TRUE STORY THAN I THINK YOU WERE WATCHING THE WRONG MOVIE
