What a humiliating insult to Bollywood, that an outsider like Danny Boyle comes to Mumbai, the movie capital of India, makes an amazingly entertaining movie like Slumdog Millionaire on a budget of just $15 million, with a cast of ‘slumdogs’ and walks away with all the glory.
Eight Oscars, no less.
Folks, with few exceptions Bollywood = Thieves+Mediocrity.
No question about it, dear reader.
Thieves – Yes, Yes, Yes
Look at the staggering number of movies these Bollywood swines have stolen over the years: Ghajini, Partner, Heyy Baby, God Tussi Great Ho, Kidnap, The Killer, U Me Aur Hum, Hum Kisise Kum Nahin, Ek Ajnabee, Saroja, Thenali,…the list is endless.
Yes, most of our cheapo Bollywood heroes, heroines, directors and producers are beneficiaries of theft.
Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan, Salman Khan, Surya, Riteish Deshmukh, Murugadoss, Venkat PrabhuÂ et al are all beneficiaries of theft.
And this wretched beneficiary of theft Amitabh ‘Big Mouth’ Bachchan whines about Slumdog Millionaire projecting India’s dirty side.
Truly sir, the Amitabh Bachchans, Akshay Kumars and Kamal Haasans have no shame. Absolutely no shame at all.
If shameless stealing is one side of the Bollywood coin, the other side is mediocrity.
Most Bollywood writers can’t write a screenplay or story. And cover it up with stupid dream-song sequences of skimpily clad starlets in Switzerland or Namibia.
And most Bollywood directors are so clueless that they can’t find the loo without direction.
Worse, these cocky little twits make little effort to acknowledge their shortcomings and improve.
No surprise then that beyond the borders of India, no one takes these jokers seriously.
Eat your hearts out today, Bollywood. For the stupendous success of Slumdog Millionaire has exposed you for what you really are – a bunch of thieving, mediocre shits.
