It seems big b is not happy with the dog. According to him SM(no prize for guessing) portrayed India in a wrong way to the western world.
Here is an excerpt from the blog
"On blog, comments for the film ‘Slum Dog Millionaire’ and the anger by some on its contents, prompt me to say the above. If SM projects India as Third World dirty under belly developing nation and causes pain and disgust among nationalists and patriots, let it be known that a murky under belly exists and thrives even in the most developed nations. Its just that the SM idea authored by an Indian and conceived and cinematically put together by a Westerner, gets creative Globe recognition. The other would perhaps not.
The commercial escapist world of Indian Cinema had vociferously battled for years , on the attention paid and the adulation given to the legendary Satyajit Ray at all the prestigious Film Festivals of the West, and not a word of appreciation for the entertaining mass oriented box office block busters that were being churned out from Mumbai. The argument. Ray portrayed reality. The other escapism, fantasy and incredulous posturing. Unimpressive for Cannes and Berlin and Venice. But look how rapidly all that is changing. Retrospectives in Paris and New York. Dedicated TV channels running Hindi cinema on prime timings. Premiers at Leicester Square, the home of all Hollywood royalty, thronged by hundreds on the street in cold biting weather. Affable recognition at most corners of the universe… And a dear friend from Los Angeles wires in that Hollywood is abuzz with India and the phenomenal talent that exists there. We’re talking cinema still!"
Ha come-on, oh yeah most of the people in India apply weird maroon henna on their hair and attach a white classy beard before traveling in a bullock cart. The pain and disgust will be felt by not only nationalists and patriots but also by every human being. Will the portrayal of murky under belly in western world makes one happy? Who all are enjoying the plight of poor people in Europe and America? Aren't they human beings? Is India's image so weak that with a single portrayal of ground reality through a film by the so called westerner will spoil it? As per the aforesaid advice future films about india should only have good upper class family stories (I don’t know whether we can show saas-bahu sagas where there are fights among in-laws, since it may convey wrong message about Indian families to the other world. Huh..!! ) so that westerner's will be impressed by the situation in India and all the nationalists and patriots won't be disgusted.
Why there is a shade of pseudo anti-bourgeoisie tirade that is so common among communists in big b's comment? Isn't he happy with anil's shady character portrayal as game show's presenter? Did he take that as a barb against him?

I do agree with one thing from Big B, had SM been directed by an Indian more beautifully it wouldn't have won an oscar. We don't have the clout and money to promote Indian movies in such a way.
But that doesn't mean Cannes, Berlin & Venice are cheap.In Hollywood also there is lot of entertaining mass oriented box office block busters, they rarely win an Oscar or screened at Cannes, Berlin and Venice for their glamourous content. Film of quality only win the critics plaudits not the Bond ones.
Big B must see all the academy award winners and understand what is meant by portraying reality, something which films from Mumbai rarely do.
One saddening thing about India is that the world believes India Cinema is what is taken in Bollywood alone. We have some beautiful films in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu which don't even win national plaudits.s
