Default Slumdog kid going for the oscar

It was only last night that I decide to watch Slumdog Millionaire after having it for almost 2 weeks. It is a very good & touching show, I have to admit, earlier I thought it was going to be some Bollywood style movie. I was even more surprise that the movie & the Slumdog kids are heading for the Oscar Award. Wow!!

I have seen it too and it brought back lots of memories. We should be thankful for the warm bed, clean water and shall I say good food we have. The train ride was an experience if you don't travel first class.

I've heard of it, but haven't seen it. Looks like I must get a copy of the DVD when we go shopping for movies.

Yeah,me too.Many reviewer give different opinion abt this movie.But I would like to watch this movie first before I can give my critic

Charlene, I think if you want to buy the DVD might have to wait a little bit longer.

Ok, can wait, no problem. If we miss it on the cinema, we usually don't mind waiting. I remember those disney movies are a long, long wait before they are released in DVD, so it's ok, as long as we don't grow old waiting.

Yeah. I think it's Hollywood's way of trying to break into new market. I remember that one year they gave many oscars to the chinese.

I'm not saying Slumdog Millionaire doesn't deserve the oscars, but it just looks that way to me. I think I'll be interested to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The story is interesting.

Yup, now you mentioned it, I can see the similarity.

Default is this true or just media manipulation?

sorry am pasting it in BM version...where did it go wrong...i havent lost my emotion watching those kids striving to live in SM..sekarang ni lagi la hati aku sayu tengok the real 'Salim' in tears...pls la people..kids are not to be hurt hokkeh!

Bapa pelakon Slumdog minta bayaran lebih



AZHARUDDIN menangis selepas ditampar oleh bapanya baru-baru ini.



MUMBAI - Bapa pelakon kanak-kanak filem Slumdog Millionaire, Azharuddin Ismail menuntut lebih banyak bayaran diberikan kepada anaknya, lapor sebuah akhbar semalam.

Tuntutan tersebut disuarakan oleh lelaki berkenaan, Ismail Mohammed, 45, selepas anak lelakinya dikatakan dibayar kurang AS$28,550 (RM105,623) sedangkan filem itu meraih kutipan mencecah AS$175.6 juta (RM649.6 juta)

Azharuddin dilaporkan menerima bayaran AS$999 (RM3,696) sewaktu penggambaran manakala AS$24,981 (RM92,420) lagi dimasukkan ke dalam satu tabung amanah dan hanya boleh dikeluarkan ketika kanak-kanak itu berumur 18 tahun.

Selain itu, dia juga dibayar elaun bulanan sebanyak AS$28.60(RM106) dan keluarganya akan diberikan sebuah rumah baru berharga AS$28,550 (RM105,623).

Bagaimanapun, bapa Azharuddin yang tinggal di sebuah pondok serta menghidap batuk kering dengan pendapatan bulanan kurang AS$57 (RM211) berkata, bayaran kepada anaknya tidak mencukupi dan pengarah filem tersebut, Danny Boyle sepatutnya memberikan wang anaknya itu sekali gus dengan segera.

Kelmarin, sebuah akhbar melaporkan Azharuddin menangis selepas ditampar oleh bapanya kerana dia enggan ditemu bual media.

Bapa Azharuddin bekerja sebagai pemungut kayu api. - Agensi

Default Re: is this true or just media manipulation?

its true, some more it was brought that they were only paid 1.5 years of local salary (slightly more) which this particular TBC dad boy already finished the money (prolly payin debt and stuff).. thats why it is actually a good thing the money can only be taken out when the kid reaches 18.. and i heard there were education fund as well.

and there was uproar that after slumdog they still go back to the makeshift houses they live in.. so now the producers are going to make sure that the kids will move (with families) to brick and mortar houses. as if living in brick and mortar houses is sufficient luxury as a payback for the money printing movie.

ridiculous isnt it, after all the movie is about slumdogs. Just feel that the movie makers ought to give back more, at least to the community where the story "took place".

... so all the adults exploit the poor kid, including his own flesh and blood useless so-called father ...

Here, lemme box the father's mite infested ears!!! Better still, I call Dato' Mat Fuad to send in his mah chai and stranggle him with the very same ropes till his neck patah and if still breathing, finish the job by drowning him in that stinking pool of water, then throw his body into one of those shallow pits!

Default Re: Slumdog kid going for the oscar

i pity the kids. in such situations, it's not uncommon for the fathers to rip off their own kids.

and i won't be surprised if the father takes the money, too, when the kid reaches 18. after all, in indian society, the kids have no say, not even when they're 21. their fathers will arrange their marriages for them, too.

err, no racism intended, so, no brickbats from anyone please. it's just my observation.

Watching the film and being there experiencing it are different. Life is so, so hard for them. I believe you will cry without tears.
