Caveman’s Slumdog Confession

Posted by lawman2 on February 24, 2009


I have to admit I am still a Slumdog Millionaire fan!   My wife teases me, over my having to read the book 3 times and watch the movie 2 times…so far! 

images4Vikas Swarup, author of the book on which the film is based captured me up in the colourful tale of how an 18-year-old boy from the slums manages to win one billion rupees on a television game show, was ticking along at a perfectly average rate before Boyle filmed it for the big screen as Slumdog Millionaire, selling some 35,000 copies since publication three years ago, according to book sales monitor Nielsen BookScan.

This ol’ Caveman is so happy over the film’s triumph at last night’s Academy Awards, where it picked up gongs including best film, best director and best adapted screenplay, means sales of the book are set to climb even higher.

If you haven’t read the book… you should!

If you haven’t watched the movie… you should!

    I am wondering Caveman, after reading the book now myself, and being dragged to the movie for the second time, what do you feel was the author’s message? Really. Because you being a caveman, Republican, etc. I would like to know if you feel the author had a message to the readers…

    the republican caveman is a romantic at heart. i dare say he’s a confused republican. like he has a thing for confused liberals, i have a thing for confused republicans myself. calls for a hehehe.
    i too confess to seeing the slumdog movie twice. one of the best movies i’ve seen in a while. deserved all those oscars. gotta take note of the brilliant editing. this is one movie that made seamless cohesiveness and continuity of past to present scenes, or “flashbacks”. others do not have that rhythm and flow and loses the audience. slumdog is one good production!
