So I am officially obsessed with everything Slumdog related. It was very easy for me since:
a) i'm very gullable into believing stories like this could happen in real life..giving me hope
b) i'm a huge bollywood fan
c) the soundtrack is supposed to amazing http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001LX0JK6/internetmoviedat/ (A. R. Rahman is the equivalant of Hans Zimmer in my book, plus there's one Sonu Nigam song)
d) the critics are all raving about it...
