We first watched Slumdog Millionaire in December last year.
And liked it immensely. We predicted it would walk away with a big haul of awards and indeed it did.
We’d been waiting for the DVD to watch the movie again and the Slumdog DVD arrived three or four days ago.
But we were reluctant to fork out $17 for the DVD.
And since like all cheapo desis we find it hard to resist the lure of a freebie, we trooped over to a Redbox kiosk (free rental on Mon and Wed with a code) a short while ago and picked up the Slumdog Millionaire DVD.
We’ll update this post once we finish rewatching the movie.
Unfortunately, our DVD did not have the usual special features like deleted scenes, interviews et al except trailers for a bunch of movies.
While the second time’s never as much fun 😉 , we nevertheless enjoyed watching the Slumdog Millionaire DVD.
We still think the kids did a great job and we still don’t think the grownups (Dev Patel and Freida Pinto) did a great job.
Nice lines from the movie:
* What the hell can a slumdog possibly know
* It’s bizarrely plausible
* Well, well, the slumdog barks
