Kya Aap Montessori Pass Se Tez Hain?

An office bearer of a slum dwellers’ body has filed a defamation case against music director A.R. Rahman and actor Anil Kapoor alleging that the award winning film “Slumdog Millionaire” calls Indians dogs and slum dwellers slum dogs.

Meanwhile, the Thackeray's are contemplating action against film director Kevin Smith for calling all mothers Dog, in his controversial 1999 movie -- Dogma!
(In this case, they may even get the Vatican's support!)

This can happen only in India! More here

Why wait till 'SlumDog..' gets all the recognition and awards before taking offence? And I think the guy in question hasn't even seen the movie. (Read so in TOI) Just took offence to slum'dog'. I haven't seen it either , but I believe the story is about how a slumdweller rises above his dwelling and goes on to become a millionaire. That sure is a case FOR the underdog rather than against. Oops! Under..LION?

Really?? I mean Really really???
ok!!! then what about the Indian cricket team which was labeled as under'dogs' in their series against Australia? Shouldn't they have filed the case against the entire media? No wait, did I miss any point here? I am still in the state of utter confusion.... Did they really think they could file a case against the movie being called so?

And Bhai India desh hi asia hai ab kya kahein. Thakrey Sahab ko toh goli maar dena chahiye btw. Sabke paas dimaag ka overdose hai, using it at the wrong place for the wrong thing. Hence the situation at hand. Otherwise Amreeka walon ki aisee ki taisee kar di hoti 10 years back.

*sigh*
