So I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire. I know I know. I am so late to the band wagon. Brian and I were probably the last 2 people on Earth to see it, I know he hasn’t seen it because he has an aversion to theater nachos, and now he’s all by himself on that ledge.
Anyway, it was a good movie. A little shocking but the concept was an original one so I liked it. The only thing is, when this movie first came out, they were making a big deal about the dances showcased in the movie. In fact, my niece Natalia performed a Slumdog dance at her school recital and I know it was a Slumdog dance because her teacher said it was a Slumdog dance. So I kept expecting musical dance numbers to entertain me throughout the movie but then it ended without a single dance!
Me: WTF?? Where’s the Bollywood routine??
Andy: Not every Indian movie is going to have a Bollywood routine, Bee.
Me: Um yeah they do! And the media promised me some dancing! I feel so cheated! Oh wait. There it is.
And the dance came on at the very end and I was very disappointed. In my opinion, they were showed up by a class of second graders in a small Chicago suburb but the movie was good so watch the movie for the movie and not the dance.
I also found out the Youtube people loved filming there kids doing spastic routines to the Jai Ho song. This was my favorite:
