Slumdog Conquers Oscars :)

           Whatever be your opinion of this much entertaining movie, today is a great day for India.. Just two Oscars till yesterday -- One life time award for that maestro, Satyajit Ray &  some costume related award for Bhanu Athaiya  in Gandhi , Slumdog gave us quite a lot today ...Rahman, Russel , Freida ...  and  as the jewel in the crown - Oscar for the best movie.. 

           What makes this movie special ? Its entertaining , fast paced, at times emotional,  often dramatic...but these attributes are found in quite a lot of movies...  To me, the speciality is that it captures the feelings and imaginations of all Indians..   Its a movie for the masses..Forget any cinematic imperfections..forget over dramatization, this is just something that quite a lot of people could relate to...could identify themselves with .. Cinema is for the audience.. And thats where Slumdog scores :)   

        As the music streams out of my itunes player, I can feel the emotions of many....And the music would stay on for some time :-)

Current Music - Ring Ring Ringa !!!

Jai Ho :)

Options..Differences..And a lookback :-)

       Some people are precociously talented.. Or rather, is it fluke that gets them to these superlative achievements.. Eitherway, these people make you understand one thing that I blogged about sometime back...
      "the reason behind an action by me might not be comprehensible to you..And a reason behind your action might not be comprehensible to me..Or rather, these buzzwords - rational , logical , common sensical -- all these vary from person to person to a great degree"

     You tend to realize that something for which you struggled a lot does not even figure as worthy to someone else... :-) 
        On a different note... I'm again hooked back to this wonderful idea of blogging before exams..:-) 

            Never there was a dull moment..
            Never there were games.. 
            It was nice ... It was bliss..
            For I was being myself then..
            Times have changed..Years have gone by..
            Looking back, I do regret...
            But I'm thankful to a lot..
            For, those taught me a lot..
            For, those made me what I'm today..
