Another great movie with an awesome soundtrack. Contemporary Indian movie produced and directed by Brits. The protagonists flashes back to life in Mumbai slums where we get a glimpse of that life and life outside. The storyline was a great. The music is great, acting wonderful, a love story and a brothers difficult relationship.
Megan and I then went to Ceylonta afterward for some dosai and curried shrimp. The owner told us that the opening song of the film is by a famous Tamil hip hop singer song writer M.I.A. I went to check her out, Wow! She is a totally interesting. Not my style of music but I love what she is putting together as video, ideas, art and her politics. Her Bird Flu video was filmed in a village in India and the village folk really got into it. I am not used to seeing jungles, mangos and south Indian villages mixed with pop rap art, but this woman makes it work - and what the hell - why not see those images together.
