What was Mr. Arindam Choudhury thinking??

You need to read the review of Slumdog Millioner by Arindam Chaudhuri, i.e. incase you've not already read it in all the major possible English newspapers in India. It is a full page advert of IIPM where Mr. Chaudhuri is currently the Honorary Dean for Centre for Economic Research and Advanced Studies and it has this review in the end. This review seems so stupid in an advert for an Educational Institute. It seems like this person is really looking for some cheap publicity and you can see that from the comments on the blog post. I have a feeling that this guy really believes in "There is no such thing as bad publicity". I am still not sure why would someone actually pay for a full page advert for something like this.

Come to think of it Mr. Chaudhuri is also a film maker and it almost sounds like envy more than a honest review. I really love some of the comments on the blog post. Some of them follow now.

Holy s**t! Can’t believe we Indians are so gullible, so gluttonous for fame and so desperate for the Oscar attention.

To Preeti who said:

..share and tell the world that i am with them and we will not tolerate any nonsense like the SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE movie..Feel your country to be you home and fight for its pride...
---------------------
How do we fight for its pride my lady? but shouting at anyone who tries to venture near our slums and ensuring that it is hidden away from the world??

By getting mad every time a movie is made about India and in the movie India is not shown as this chocolatey place with all the girls looking models and all the guys driving around in imported Sedans?
Where only the poshness and upwardly life is shown? is that how u intend to fight for the pride of ur country?

..shame on you.
