O saya is my favourite too!! The Paper Planes remix is so cool.
I thought the slum setting was... done tastefully. It was such a colourful film- it didn't patronise the people who lived there at all. Wheras many people wouldhave tried to portray it as a hell-hole, this film said, yes it's a horrible place BUT people live there, and they aren't all junkies and etc like we'd expect in slums remotely like that where I live, and there is culture there. Is it better to ignore the slums altogether because they make you uncomfortable? It brought attention to the conditions some people live in in a tactful way.

I think it's all very good to say that it's a developing country that is moving forward, but that doesn't mean they should ignore the bad things.

lmao I haven't seen the movie, but I have seen the Pussycat Dolls' version of that. The video seems inappropriate for a Slumdog Millionaire cover. I mean, at least once, can they not try to be provocative? XD
