It happened sometime before when Slumdog was nominated for Oscar and there was a movie called "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was also in the league for some of the category. When the movie was released in India, It did not get so good review kind of thing in the media. As a movie freak, I got a copy of it sometime ago and As i did not have any other entertainment mode, curiously I started watching this movie. The length of the movie is more than the normal english movie, so it took me 3 days to complete it part by part. And personally i liked the movie.
The speciality of this movie is the story of the movie where the lead role guy lives life in backward. It means, The hero born as an old man and dies as a small child... sounds funny... but its hard to live such life in real, where you have to live against the nature. There is another movie called "Memento" where the movie runs in a opposite way. Like the movie starts with end and ends with start. The screenplay of both the above movies are amazing. In one movie, where the hero lives a life in opposite way and portaying that on the screen is not so easy task. The narration part of the movie is also equally good. And about Memento I would say, If you want to understand the movie at first attempt, find a media player which can play a movie from last to beginning instead of beginning to end. These are the classic examples of some of the movies which proves that how the bollywood needs to workout on improving the quality, and critic should stop criticizing others for not getting any Oscars (by any hindi movies).
