Priyadarshan says Slumdog is trashy
February 02, 2009

Trashing out at the much acclaimed film Slumdog Millionaire, ace director Priyadarshan said that the film does not show the aesthetic side of Mumbai but only deals with the slums. He added that the film was a mediocre one based on several Bollywood films that were released in the 1970s. Priyadarshan reportedly said: “If the Golden Globe and Oscars


committees have chosen to honor this trashy film it just shows their ignorance of world cinema.”

The angry director said: “I saw the film with a mixed audience at the Toronto Film Festival. The Westerners loved it. All the Indians hated it. The West loves to see us as a wasteland, filled with horror stories of exploitation and degradation. But is that all there to show of our beautiful city of Mumbai?” He asked: “Why has Danny Boyle not taken one shot of Marine Drive? Do his slum dwellers exist only within their slums?”
