    Saw the movie.

    Not epic nor does it bear any deep meaning as everyone says. But I like it.

    What constiutes "deep meaning" to you?

    The film elucidates some of the pit falls of living in a third-world country.

    What more "deep" do you want?

    I thought the movie was well produced and acted. Not the most riveting movie I had ever seen but it more than holds it own and I thoroughly enjoyed it

    SDM won 8 awards now including best picture.

    This is not Rahman's best work and still won the OSCAR. He had produced lot of amazing music in the past. Guess what... You need an English label to even reach at OSCAR.

    It is good to see that creative people from India are beginning to get their due recognition for the work they do. I have many friends on BHW (and offline) who are from India and they are some of the most intelligent, sincere and polite people I have ever met.

    It seems that the world is starting to "grow up" somewhat as racial barriers are falling away. . . . Still a long way to go yet though.

    Who knows? . . . Maybe someday people will be looked at and judged as individuals . . . without the stigma and stereotype of race entering into the equation.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    liked the movie..but tbh...i'm pretty shocked it won so many awards....

    like someone said above...rahman has made way way better music in the past and there have been way way better movies (even india) that never even got nominated..

    but hey, i couldnt care less.... :D
