What I am Currently Watching #1


Quote of the day: 

A compliment is like a kiss through a veil -Victor Hugo

Farewell to the month of February as we march into the month of march..

During the week i had the oppurtunity of watching 2 interesting movies.

'Slumdog Millionaire'

Oscar winnings: 8
Movie: Shot in Mumbai

 
It was a great movie to watch-a feel good movie with most partsof it in hindi.

Slumdog Millionaire in part has brought attention to called slum
 dwellers in the city of Mumbai where parts of the film was shot. 


The film starts at the end. Dev Patel’s 18-year-old Jamal is just one correct answer away from winning — or blowing — a 20 million rupee (£280,000) fortune on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a
 Millionaire? 
In the movie, we learn the history of Jamal and the other principal characters in flashbacks, as Jamal answers questions on the TV show not from book knowledge — he has none — but his own life
 experiences. Jamal is searching for two people from his childhood: his wild older brother Salim (an outstanding Madhur Mittal), now a thief and killer, and his adored Latika (the achingly lovely Freida Pinto),
 now stepping up from child prostitute to plaything of a gangster. Every incident, including the brothers' watching their mother die in an anti-Muslim riot, feeds into Jamal's answers on the show....
All in all it was a great movie,and i'd recommend it for anyone out there too.

Two of the kid actors used in the film actually live in the slum
s in real life, and i read somewhere that the producers of the movie have set up an education plan for them ,and they've put them in very good
 schools all pain for untill they are 18-after which a substantial amount of money will be paid to them which will effectively change their lives for the better-boyle was quoted as saying. 

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Oscar awards:


Lead actor Bradd Pitt -He plays Ben from infanthood, a baby born with the wizened, room-clearing face of a man in his 80s. How'd they do that? Digital face painting, baby, which means slapping Pitt's computer-aged mug on tiny bodies as Ben ages backward till he reaches full growth. Digital kicks in again when Pitt, 44, has to look way younger.
Intrigued? How could you not be? The movie looks amazing. And for the first hour, when storytelling and special effects bond like lovers, it plays even better. You get a rush like Hollywood has discovered a brave new world. The technical wizardry sweeps you away, as baby Ben, abandoned by his appalled father (Jason Flemyng), is taken in by Queenie (the superb Taraji P. Henson), a black attendant at a New Orleans old-age home where death is never a stranger. 
Two great movies to watch-if you haven't done so already! 
Happy weekend.
