Thoughts on the movie? I believe it won a couple Golden Globes & is nominated for 10 Academy Awards.

I thought it was brilliant, very different, very engaging, just an overall mind-blowing movie experience. Anyone else?

wow what a movie, just finished watching it online

It kinda felt like a documentary with a love story in it. Ya know what thats what the ugly part of India looks like. Not too sure if kids are that street smart to get wherever they want to but there are people there who you don't want to run into if you're young and there is little chance of redeeming yourself or turning your life around if you had a screwed up childhood.

That scene to begin the movie where they're playing cricket is hillarious, i remember playing in the middle of the street with bikes and cars zipping by you lol. I once hit a policeman on his head while he was riding in his bicycle, man we just picked up our equipment, balls and the bat and run for our lives lol

Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, who plays the youngest version of the main character's brother Salim in the film, lives with his parents and siblings in a makeshift plastic tent, pitched on a half-finished government park.

Besides friends and neighbours, he has a big garbage dump and armies of mosquitoes and flies for company.

Ten-year-old Azharuddin's mother says they have been homeless for a while: "We have been squatting on this government park since the time our hutments were demolished over a year ago and despite showing the right documents to the authorities we have not been allotted our room [a one-room tiny flat]."

Rubina Ali - who portrays the youngest version of the leading lady Latika in the film - is playing with Azhar and other children.

Their faces glow in the rays of the fading sunlight. They greet the BBC team with coyness. Ask them to pronounce the film's title and they fumble amid nervous smiles. "Aslum dog minaire," says Rubina. "No," Azhar tries to correct her, with his own incorrect version.
