What do you think of the controversy of "SlumDog Millionaire"?

I just saw this movie this past weekend. I thought it was wonderful, although I see how it has created controversy over the term "slumdog". It is a degragtory term used by the police to describe the main character. Many impovrished people in India have taken offense. Have you seen the movie? What do you think of it?

  • It is a good movie. Not all people are offended. I liked the idea that they were using real kids from India's poorest areas in the movie. The movie helped them to go to school and live normal life.
