One of the child actors who starred in the Oscar-winning flick "Slumdog Millionaire" received a severe beating from his dad today after the 10-year-old star refused to be put on display like a trophy. Less than a week after strutting down the red carpet in Los Angeles, actor Azharuddin Mohammed was slapped and kicked by his dad Ismail, The London Sun reported today on its Web site. "I was very sorry that I did what I did," he said afterward. "I was so confused and stressed by my son's homecoming that I did not know myself for a minute.

This movie sounds terribly uninteresting. But it has diversity, and that's all the liberals needed to give it eight undeserved Oscars.

Yeah. Nothing says “I love you, son” than a good ole fashioned Indian beatdown. Must be a culture thing..

It was a cute movie. My wife and I enjoyed it. It is just ironic that the kid is getting clobbered by his father. Life imitates art.

We saw the movie last weekend. It wasn’t as bad as I feared. Not sure if it deserved 8 oscars, but it was a decent story.

only because i could not talk my husband into the latest Clive Owen movie...I’ll have to see that one with the girls...meow.

People had me interested in seeing the movie........then I watched the trailer.

Needless to say, I never saw it.

The wife has said:

“Oh don’t worry about him. He also beats me senseless everyday. Now if you’ll excuse me, I will have to prepare his whipping rod because my son talked to you infidels.’

Islamic names. In reality, the kid should praise allah and consider himself lucky he didn’t get his head chopped off.

A son should be raised to respect his father. Was the Father asking too much for the son to just show off a little?

It’s a good movie but nothing to scream about. Gran Torino should have won something.

Indians are not typically Muslim, rather they are Budists.

That along with many other things should tell the US and its companies that we should not be outsourcing anything to them at all. I have also recently found out that they are forced to work 12 hour days and it takes 2 of them to do the job of one of us. So from a FTE perspective 1 American does the job of 3 of them, yet so many companies continue to outsource. The will see exactly how screwed up things will get.

He likes them, but let’s say “not as much as I enjoy them”
