Why Bachchan's Having Trouble Praising SLUMDOG ..

Its done and more of a well applauded fact with the whole world now that SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE has won 8 Oscars.At one side where whole world is going bizzare over the movie and its well acclaimed cast including all Indians but on the other hand its been still eluding to hear any word of praise from the number 1 family of Indian Cinema. Yes, the Bachchan's are surely not impressed with the Slumdog, first it was the Big B, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan who was criticizing the movie in public through his blog and in the media and now it seems like the pendulum has been passed to his daughter in law Mrs.Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.As per Aishwarya the movie is "just another movie" with nothing as special about it, instead she even did not want to talk furthur about it but diplomatically moved away from the discussion by praising the oscar winners Rehman and Resul.
Ironically, Slumdog Millionaire had a scene where the Shahenshah of Bollywood lands in his helicopter near the slums of dharavi and the crowd goes bizzark for having the glimse of there own superstar.Unfortunatly, the original Mr.BIG B was never called by Mr.Danny Boyle to play the role in the oscar winning film and still being used in a virtual character without even being shown the face of Amitabh Bachchan in the movie.And ofcourse, the reel Slumdog Millionaire Jamal did take Mr.Bachchan's autograph in the movie and went ahead in the millionaire game with answering the question on Mr.Bachchan.
Probably, thats the rootcause of Bachchan's being having bad mouth about the movie and not yet applauded the movie whole-heartedly. Yes, its really bad when you are being used as a character in the movie and that too of utmost importance(of such a big stature and being part of the question faced by Jamal on his road to being a millionaire) and still have not actually acted in it. Moreover, the agony goes a level or two more up on hearing that the movie has been winning all the awards in the world including 8 Oscars.Secondly, the movie is still pulling in crowds giving nowhere stands to other movies like Pink Panther(starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan),Delhi-6(starring Abhishek Bachchan) which is making again the Bachchan's in an agony for the movie not doing well on box-office because of competition at certain extent.
Anyways, we still love the Bachchan's and since the theme of the world at this moment of time is SLUMDOG..So, lets say together JAI HO......!!
