What caught my attention was the winner of Best Motion Picture- Drama is a movie named Slumdog Millionaire~! First of all, I never heard about the movie. So, sama ada I yang tidak mengikuti perkembangan or marketing die tak sampai Malaysia.
Then, that movie memang takde tayang kat Malaysia ler. Obviously~! In fact, all the nominees for Best Motion Picture- Drama and Musical/Commedy tidak ditayangkan kat Malaysia (exception for Mamma Mia). Terasa betapa kurangnya movie kat Malaysia ni. Nak kata banyak Malaysian movie tak jugak sebab Malaysian movie slalu kejap sangat stay kat cinema (still bengang sebab tak sempat nak tgk Los n Faun!!!) Ntahler, Malaysian tak suka tgk movie kut?
Back to Slumdog Millionaire. Other things that impress me is even it was British movie, citer tu was filmed in India, where, pelakon2 dia semua Indian. Well, I'm not a fan of Bollywood movie but this movie is English movie and I believe bukan typical citer hindustan. So, thumbs up for India. Well done! It's good to see different faces (bukan mat saleh) yang menang.
Then, this movie menang other awards as well that nite. That movie was nominated in 3 other award and won all of it! Best Director, Best Screenplay- Motion Picture, Best Original Score- Motion Picture. 4 Golden Globe in one go~! Plus, it won 5 out of 6 nominations in Critics Choice Award. Hebat bukan?
Today, I google the movie and jumpa a few review about the movie. For me, jalan cerita movie tu interesting sangat. And in that movie, the main actor is Muslim :)
"The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show's questions. Intrigued by Jamal's story, the jaded Police Inspector begins to wonder what a young man with no apparent desire for riches is really doing on this game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out... " copy n paste from Yahoo!
