So the fight goes on. OK, Now I've got offended too, why ARR hasn't mentioned any of the instrument player's name, the guitarist, percussionist, etc. How dare he?

Hey, you forgot his driver. After all without the driver of his BMW, how could ARR get to the studio and thus the driver's role in the song cannot be discounted.

I don't know what gave you the impression that he behaved like that - maybe you have some extra-sensory perception that the rest of us are not blessed with. I saw the award ceremony on TV and it did not occur to me that he was acting like what you said. I don't know the man personally, but from what I have read about him, I don't think your assesment of ant-siness is anywhere near target.

Could be many reasons for this. A valid one would be that at such a big moment, we might get overwhelmed and miss out stuff that we had planned to say, even when it was rehearsed. Or, like Singh, there would be many more that contributed to that song and it would not have been possible to thank all of them. And frankly when we dont see S.Singh himself complaining about it, I don't see what the big deal here is.

Well you started the quote business with some Punjabi quote whose relevance we also did not see in the context.

What about the BMW itself? I think that BMW also have equal importance of carrying him to the studio without breaking down. Bavaria Motor Works rocks and they should also have been mentioned.

At last somebody in this thread has said that ARR's music/song is brilliant & magical.

And he forgot to thank his undie manufacturer without whom he would not have had two hands available at the same time.

Actually, ARR did not thank anyone other than his mother. But he forgot to thank the man who wrote "Mere paas Ma hai"

ARR has answered two of the questions that we are fighting for!
Quote:
Replying to the grouse of some Indian audiences that ‘Jai Ho’ was nowhere near his best work, he said, “Your sensibility found other tracks good,” and Western sensibilities loved Slumdog’s tunes. He said that Slumdog was his “career best” when it came to music for a Hollywood audience. And the lyrics ‘Jai Ho’ had a phonetic appeal that transcended any language barriers. “The song is a release of extraordinary energy.” After an exhausting journey through ups and downs, the movie ends with a “burst of joy” in this song.
Quote:
As to why some Indian audiences did not think highly of the movie, he said that though he disagreed, people were entitled to their views.

Suppose this thread is closed?
ARR and Resul to be congratulated for their Oscars. ARR's work appreciated by Hollywood, also in India but in India we have heard better music from him.
ARR does not seem to have been disrespectful to anyone, when he was back in India he was quite level, not on cloud nine. since he only thanked his mother, hopefully all the others, Sukhwinder, musicians and driver will forgive. He got awards, he thanked his mother, can we leave it?
The movie got Oscars, it has lots of Indian connections, congrats. Since I read that there is another thread for critics, let the criticism be away from this thread. I had criticised the movie for depiction of the big B and sarcasm to the contestant, but not for depiction of poverty.
SDM folks have done something for the kids, took them to the Oscars, are supposed to have kept some money for them in trust till they reach 18 years of age, I personally feel that they have done quite enough.
Perhaps the thought of closing this thread can be considered.
