My blogworld friend Kala has posted a wonderful blog on the Pygmalion effect of the film Slum Dog Millionaire.
The two songs that she has mentioned were sung, or the tunes whistled/hummed by me and many of us for years. In fact, just as recently as a few days ago, I sang “All I want is a room somewhere” to a friend and his lovely daughter who were in the process of choosing an apartment to purchase in our neighborhood.
The perspective that Kala brings to the film, or its underbelly, is unusual for its brutal realism. I commend her for this perspective.
Does anyone else have a different point of view?
