Slumdog Millionaire bagged 8 awards. ARRahman as music director won two. Super!
But was it ARR's best work?
No, I think.
Let's face it, slumdog millionaire was a good platform (British director) to give the world a glimpse of Indian talent, that's all. Of course, ARR has given us much fab music. And great that he got away with two big ones at the Oscars and created history. Good for him too. Sure, we are proud and thrilled for him. It's like winning a major competition.
But why are Oscars so important to us?
