Gem of a movie. Excellent direction and fine performances by all the actors including the slum children. I would like the group to perform the dance number Jai Ho at the Oscars. The lead actors along with the slum actors and Bollywood dancers should recreate the dance number on stage at the Oscars with a Railway Platform setting as was in the film. I believe that all numbers nominated are performed live at the Oscars. What better way than than this opportunity to showcase our Bollywood dancing to North American audiences ? They may pick up the moves after watching the dance at the Oscars.

good one arshad ...i think its not only on mumbaikars but on INDIAN .. i m not mumbaikar but still i proud on this movie
Just 1 or 2 or 3 oscars for Slumdog will give tremendous boost to Indian films and Americans can depend Indian market for making more movies like Slumdog. When the market potential is huge exploiters won't miss a single chance to make money even at the cost of Oscars standard

No offense... but oscar nominations does not make movie profitable. And slumdog was not a big hit.
