Slum dog a passing thought
The media hype over Oscar is again reflection of our colonial mindset. A R Rahman is undoubtedly one of the best musicians we ever had and to be fair to Rahman himself, Slumdog is not his best work. But his association with a " white " man gave him the Oscar. If work was all people at OSCARS looked at Rahman should have got OSCAR 10 years ago. Now media, public and everyone stop pretending Slumdog .. as an Indian movie. If Lagan or Tare Zameen Par had got the Oscar then there was point in celebration. Now here is a clue to Aamir Khan- Take a white producer and director when you produce your next movie.
