I liked the movie but was I the only one very dissatisfied with the HUGE gaps in time the movie kept having? Sigh. We never find out what really happened to Latika that she ended up being Javed's live in girlfriend and such. I was also highly disappointed that Salim had to die! It's weird ... I don't know why I became interested in his character rather than Jamal or Latika. I was also pretty confused with Salim's actions. I got the impression for him it was all about survival and control... His death left me wondering what his life would be like if things had been different and if it hadn't been the three of them together but four instead. Yeah. Weird concept of mine. I do realize there is no four of them there never was but what if there was another person in the group besides Jamal, Latika and Salim?

a slumdog millionaire ficlet
genre: TEH MOOSH. might be the sappiest thing i've ever written. but come on, y'all know you love it...
disclaimer: i don't own slumdog millionaire, a bunch of folks who are a lot cooler and have a lot more money than i do own it...
warnings: spoilers all over for the movie, especially the ending.
summary: she often tells him it's a good thing that he went on millionaire when he did, because god-- whichever god there is-- made him good at one game, and one game only, and he'd found just the one.
(eeehhh, just go down the entry to where the title is. it's right after. i also wrote a rather inspired review of the movie and that's the kind of extensive first part of the post).

I just finished reading Vikas Swarup’s Q & A, the novel that Slumdog is based on. I was curious: have any other Slumdog Millionaire fans read it? If you have, what did you think of it?
Current Mood: curious
Current Music: Dil Se soundtrack "Satrangi Re"
