A WT# question comes in another one of those endless debates about poverty and ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
Sagarika Ghose to the panelists in Face The Nation : But would the film have been such a success had it not been set in a slum and say, in a university?
Well, the title wouldn’t have made any sense firstly.
The debate has other gems by an unknown sociologist Sherry Sabharwal : My request to Danny Doyle is next time concentrate on something like a university.
So I propose we draft a list of must-have-scenes for all Western directors aspiring to make a movie in India.
Did I mention that all the panelists haven’t seen the movie yet ?
