The movie is winning awards left right and centre and is headed to Oscars, with a hefty recommendation in the form of the Golden Globes.
However, the land, where the Slumdog Millionaire was born, is witnessing a debate of a different kind.
In this debate, one side is accusing Boyle of shamelessly cashing in on the poverty-stricken underbelly of India and not showing a more balanced and positive view of the country, which, by all means, is one of the leading economies of the world.
The other side is defending Slumdog by saying that the movie deals with truth and optimism and it is showing what already exists in the country.
The verdict is not yet out as the discussion goes on: over blogs, in the newspapers, on television channels, inside living rooms, on office balconies, inside buses and cars.
Everyone has something or the other to say, So, I thought, why not get together my blogger friends and have our own SAY in this matter.
So, the field is open, anyone wanting to have a say on this matter, is welcome to put his or her remarks, comments, opinion on whether "Slumdog Millionaire is biased because it has chosen to be selective in its portrayal of reality or does it actually show the audience, worldwide and in India, a true picture of slum life in the country?"
The discussion is open to all and anyone who wants to have their say can do so by putting in their remarks in the comments section and taking part in the poll survey that I have put up on the left hand side of the blog, just below the Blog Archive section.
I would be keeping a tab of the discussion and would put up the comments and counter-comments on the blog for everyone's perusal from time to time.
