Slumlog Millionaire and The Almighty Buck

Yesterday, Talking with one of my friend, Satyam Nigam, I asked him

“Did you like Slumdog Millionare ?”

“It was so-so” he said.

“Do you think it has any chance of winning in oscar ? ”

“preety good chance ”

“Why so? ”

“See, I give you an analogy. India is an emerging market. During early 90’s there was less fashion consciousness in India and less people were interested in fashion products. The strategy of global fashion market leaders remained to exploit the potential market in India, From 1994 to 2000, 6 of the Indian girls were Miss World/Universe. You can see the fashion market in India now.”

“So you want to say if Slumdog Millionare wins the title, It will help global film production companies to penetrate Indian Market”

“Or it can be made to win. It’s all about the Almighty Buck brother”

I kept wondering “Is it so?”
