I thought about posting about Slumdog Millionaire when I watched the movie, and for some reason it was left as a draft in my "to publish" posts and now it became relevant again with Rubiana Ali's (the girl in picture #3) sad news that have been floodding the media. It is so painful to think that a father would (have to) sell a daughter to support the rest of the family... and it's so ironic that an actress who took part in a movie that exposes how hard life can be in the slums of India has to go through this. I suppose I can't really judge this with an occidental point of view, but still, it's just too sad.
I totally recomend the movie, though bare in mind that there are some harsh realities exposed very matter-of-factly, but the people, the places and the colors of India are so beautifully portrayed.
