Rahman : JAI HO :) :)

I have been up since 6.30 this morning to watch the Golden Globe Awards on WORLD MOVIES. And Yay, I'm glad that I was up this early.

As of 8.22, the count is 2/4 for Slumdog Millionaire. Simon Beaufoy has won the Best Screenplay Award and our very own AR Rahman has lapped up the Best Original Music score. I must say I didnt know who he was up against, James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer are no small names and to win competing against them is something.

Oh I am so happy happy happpppppyy today. I watched the movie for the nth time last night..guess today I'll watch it again. The music score is just amazing, as is most of Rahman's work. I'm absolutely hooked on to the song "JAI HO" which plays when the credit rolls towards the end. Sukhvinder Singh's voice is magical most times. 

Waiting for the next two awards  for Slumdog i.e Best Movie (Drama) and Best Director. They are yet to be announced. Hope they make it 4/4.

Right now Steven Speilberg is being honoured with the Cecil B DeMille Award. Grrr...Get away from the screen Scorsese and let the other awards roll... :P So exited :P :P


P.S: ANIL KAPOOR looks drunk by the way he is jumping around and shouting. Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto are so composed, they put Kapoor to shame :P :P


PHEW!! Gotta hand over the laptop to mom...she's in a bit of a hurry.  But Yayayayaayaaaaaaay!! :D :D :D

P.S: Shahrukh was there with Freida Pinto... In case you didnt know :) 

Watch it tonite at 8 PM on UTV Movies and World Movies. :) I will :)

    I loved the movie for the way it was made, more than the story. I tried to look up your review but unfortunately, cant find it ..send me the link and I'll reserve my opinion on ur review :P

    To be honest, this movie kinda grew on me..and I am what you call, "A HYPE BABY" :P :P The whole Indian actors speaking in english and the slum boy talking in such a heavy brit accent was very unnatural, and at first I didnt like it. Repeated sessions of watching it with family and friends, made me like the movie and eventually fall in love with the soundtrack.

    When I came to know that Rahman was nominated, I really hoped he wins...he deserves credit for every single note he has composed so far (Even Mangal Pandey) :P

    So kindly send me the link to your review..I'll let u know :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Havnt reviewed it...just a ramble of this mornings crazy behaviour on my part :P Yeah I love the movie now too :P

    And you and Sourish going "talk talk" on my blog?? Love it...please continue :P

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Yeah Dark Knight was a good movie...but in the end, we werent deciding the final list of nominated persons. Every year some deserving movie or actor fails to get due accolades, whats so special about this year?

    I'm just happy for Rahman more than anything...thats why my post title stresses on Rahman and not the movie...everything else is a bonus for me :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    You gave it a 6/10 O_O ..Did u have people screaming at you after that?? :P :P

  1. SMRITI said...:


    I was thinking of you when I wrote this blog...The biggest Rahman Fan I know on blogosphere :P :P :)

    He throughly deserves it, isnt it?? Just so happy :)


    Will mail the soundtrack ASAP :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Hope you saw it... :) If you did, can you tell me if Anil Kapoor seemed drunk to you too or was it just me mistaking his over-enthusiasm for inebriation?? O_O

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Thanks for dropping by :)

    And yeah, Rahman deserves it..Kudos!! :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Brilliant movie?? You watch and decide for yourself :) :) (Will wait for the review on that one )

    And about your post being post for the week, I absolutely loved it and felt that more people should read it :) Like I said, I mailed it to my friends on gmail (put up your blog link too :p) Will send u their feedbacks wen I have enough

    And yes, I did see your reply comment to my comment and I forgot to comment. So should I go back and re comment on the comment or this comment enough for the comment?? :P

  1. SMRITI said...:

  1. Anonymous said...:

    Wow, Just read your PS under the header... I'm elated Smriti and especially coming from an ardent reader of literature :) And Thanks, I get your message so no need to go and reply there :)

  1. Rahul said...:

    What error? Use http://rahul-bhattacharya.blogspot.com/ as the link to "add Subscription" ..works fine with mine

    I too used Google Reader..but found it inappropriate for blogging (Though I love Google so much) ...coz it doesn't allow to read and comment at the same time..which is why I use the Blog List in my blog..arranging all blog posts reverse chronologically along with a snippet of the post :)

  1. hitch writer said...:

    too many reviews of this film... guess i must watch it too !

  1. Rajesh said...:

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Watch it in theatre..if not for anything else, but for the music and cinematic experience :)

  1. http://imdb.com/title/tt1010048/usercomments-282

    here is the IMDB link...


    the movie is lucky to get 6 out of me...coz I hated its script and I so agree with the brit accent english of the Slumboys....that was horrid

  1. Renu said...:

    Now i find them quite boring even on Indian awards..i mean song and dance routinme, but I hope bollywood learns the short thanks from them:)
