Good luck in trying this in India…

Soo, HOW are they are going to compete then?

Wow, 571,000 jobs lost…
My mind is made up. Effective today I will no longer download Indian movies. Promise.


A computer without a Microsoft OS is like a dog without bricks tied to its head.

Hmm interesting take on Slumdog Millionare, bollywood film i think not.
Directors:
Danny Boyle - British
Loveleen Tandan (co-director: India)

Writers:
Simon Beaufoy (screenplay) - British
Vikas Swarup (novel)

Producer:
Christian Colson - British

Company:
Celador Films - British

Main Character:
Dev Patel - British

Hmm me thinks there is a recurring theme there, could it be that Slumdog is actually a British film and nothing to do with Bollywood. It may have been filmed and based in India but is still a BRITISH film. As for the MPAA taking credit for it well they can poke off.
