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.
..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.
