Jai Ho Dance Sequence

Jamal & Latika dance their love: The Dip is a very impressive dance move. Trust.

The change in weather has put a serious damp on my inclination for socializing.  In the mood for nesting, I will periodically stay indoors in lieu of venturing out to the all-night dance party.  I had been putting off watching the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire for some time (confession: the trailer made me cry).  Once, coming home on a long-haul flight from London, I was suddenly woken from my slumber by the gentleman seated to my right.  A seemingly cool guy in his 40’s, clad in a black leather jacket, he was sobbing uncontrollably to the tune of A.R. Rahman’s Jai Ho (far superior to the Pussycat Doll collaboration).  He hurried to the washroom.  I assumed to dab his eyes and compose himself. 

The story set in Mumbai, India weaves the tale of poor chaiwallah (tea server) Jamal who emerges from the impoverished city slums to compete on the television show ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’  Directed by Danny Boyle, the film is a gritty depiction of the hardships of the slums as well as an inspired love story.  I enjoyed it and somehow I managed to keep the teardrop tsunami at bay.  The film ends with a Bollywood style dance sequence – I would like to learn this choreography one day (just in case).
