5pm everyday

Jon Stewart told Dev Patel that Slumdog Millionaire was the most depressing feel good movie he’s seen. I kinda get what he meant.

It’s not slow like Benjamin Button, and not as long too. The pace was faster and the colours very vivid, the tone not as muted. I imagine Mumbai to be vibrant like Delhi, maybe different as it is India’s financial capital.

The part about the two brothers in adulthood could’ve been developed further, Salim’s such a complex character as opposed to Jamal’s straightforward one.

I’m now thinking of looking for the book the movie was based on. Wonder if the author had a described the show’s host to be like Anil Kapoor’s character. Very subtle yet packs quite a punch.

    watched it tonight. maaaaaan. i thought salim was a strong character. i felt like he basically made all the difficult choices so jamal could afford to have principles.

    i had to fill kyle in on who amitabh bachchan is, though. heh. def worth the poop jump.

    the jump! and the pose after getting the autograph is the cutest scene. i agree on salim, he’s very interesting. more grey than black and white.
