I defy you not to get up, grab a scarf, put it around your neck, grab the ends and get your groove on when you hear the infectious beats of A.R. Rahman’s Academy award-winning song from 2008’s Best Picture winner, “Slumdog Millionaire.” It was a slumdog throwdown at last night’s Oscar award show, and I for one was happy to see Mumbai receive some (well, lots of) love.
Although not a Bollywood movie (since director Danny Boyle, producer Christian Colson are, well, Caucasian, and the movie came out of a Hollywood studio), this film had many of the trappings of a thrilling Bollywood flick–seemingly improbable story line with a truly satisfying ending, the great song-and-dance number at the end, Bollywood stars as well as great unknown Indian actors, and of course the piece de resistance, a fabulous score from Bollywood music guru Rahman.
