2.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment, 7 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slumdog Millionaire [DVD] (DVD)
Bought this film with high expectations after reading all the reviews.
The film was a disappointment.
How on Earth it can be promoted as "a feel good film" is beyond me! The film where right in front of you a child is blinded by a criminal gang, where children suffer so much physically and psychologically cannot be called "feel good". What the authors are trying to say to us? "He's got the money, so everything is alright now" ????? Do they believe that winning money puts things right? Do they really think that it makes us feel good and makes us to forget everything that happened to these children before or still happening to other ones?
It would have been an OK film if they didn't use this stupid "feel good" for promoting it! I think it is the highest insensitivity of authors towards their own story and their own characters.
Left me feeling BAD!

I do agree with you, I was amazed that they could say that but on second thought I believe that producers and all that didn't want to put people off, spin, spin, spin...

I totally agree. Although - it would have been better, I belive for them to be honest. I think people would have not reacted as much agains the film if it hadn't been promoted as "feel good" one.
They got the Oscar though. I don't think they care much about our opinion after that. :-(
