'SLUMDOG' STAR GETS BRUTAL BEATING FROM DAD
New York Post ^ | 2/27/09 | CLEMENTE LISI

Posted on 02/27/2009 1:38:25 PM PST by Nachum

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. I love my boy and I am very happy to have him home." The ugly fight - which lasted less than a minute - broke out this morning in the Dharavi slum

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

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.

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

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.

rather they are Budists.

Or even Buddhists.

Perhaps adherents of Buddhism.

Surely not these unknown "Budists" of which you write.

There was nothing cute about the movie...unless you're referring to the child actors...

..The movie was a dark, brutal glimpse into the underbelly of India.

To its credit however, the brutality was not near as graphic as it could have been....and the language not as strong...and there were not gratuitous sex scenes....

..a lot was implied, but what was shown was hardcore slum life.

On the other hand, Benjamin Button was genteel & surreal.

Slumdog deserved awards but not Best Picture,IMO.

Many folks were mislead into thinking it a 'happy' movie... ...

..Very little happiness in this movie...a lot of brutality.

"Azharruddin's father was upset that he was asking to be left alone because he was tired," said the witness. "He didn't attend school today so that he could recover from his long flight from LA and simply wanted all the attention to stop."

Do you think a father should beat his son because he just wants to be a normal kid?

If so, then you're position is warped.

Respect is earned, not taken. The father has just lost a lot of respect his son may have had for him.

Actually most, (80.5%) are Hindu. Since the Buddhists do not allow the monks to marry it was a lot easier for the religion of peace to wipe them out of India, Buddhisms birthplace.

I liked the Erik Kuselias’ review on ESPN Radio of ‘Slumdog’ “It was a two-hour beatdown. It made Schindler’s List look like Animal House”

From WIKIPEDIA: “Religious demographics
Main article: Religion in India
80.5% of the Indians are Hindus, with 13.4% of the population Muslim, making India home to the third-largest Muslim population in the world after Indonesia and Pakistan. India also contains the majority of the world’s Zoroastrians, Sikhs, Jains and Bahá’í. Other religious groups include Christians (2.3%), Buddhists (0.8%), Jains (0.4%), and Jews.

Religious majorities vary greatly by state. Jammu and Kashmir and Lakshadweep are Muslim majority states; Nagaland, Mizoram and Meghalaya are Christian majority; Punjab is mostly Sikh; Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim are mainly Buddhist.

The father obviously wants to capitalize montarily from his son's celebrity by putting him on display. Kinda like P.T.Barnum reaped millions from putting Col. Tom Thumb on display.

But Barnum was kind and generous to Thumb. I doubt if this father is so loving. He should be watched like a hawk.

The son is lucky he wasn't beheaded as an honor thing when he balked at his father's wishes.

That was just the Bollywood style “casting call” at the end of the movie.

I thought overall it was an engaging story..clever the way they framed it..each question on the “Millionaire” quiz show started a flashback to the boy’s hard life from his childhood in Bombay(Mumbai).

From an unemployed IT person . . .

Amen!

I have had to fix programs that had been outsourced to India that were so bad I would have failed if I handed them in as a class assignment.

I’d like to see more Hollywood stars get brutal beatings from their fathers.

In fact, they should make films of it because that’s a movie that I’d be willing to pay money to see.

Let’s start out with all the womyn on ‘The View.’ Sean Penn, MICHAEL MOORE, man, Rosie O’mcDonald’s I could go on and on here.

I saw the movie, and while it had entertainment value, it was by no means the best picture this last year. My favorite was "The Reader".

But, it showed this "good things can happen randomly to anyone" mentality, and it fits with their "Slumdog President". I cannot remember a film winning Best Picture without ANY of its actors being nominated in the acting categories.
