Knowitall's comment on Jai Ho Oscars!
Jesus, leave the liberal political banter at the door. It is a movie. People liked it cause of the story. It has nothing to do with race. Everyone knows India has a problem with poverty. This movie did not suddenly awaken the world to the 3rd world that state for which India is in. As for the singing and dancing, most people find American musicals such as Mama Mia! and High School Musical cheesy. So the fact that bollywood is seen under the same light is not surprising.

Oh come on Knowitall!! If High School Musical was that cheesy, the makers would not have gone ahead with a second part. And do you really think audiences liked the movie simply because of the story? Many people in India are claiming to like the movie simply because they dont want to be labelled as unpatriotic and are following like a flock of sheep. This movie too is full of cliches as seen by a foreigner. I think "The Namesake" was a far superior film in terms of content.
