Indian audiences have cast a wary eye at "Slumdog Millionaire", a British-produced film starring unknown Indian actors and set in India that hauled an impressive share of Academy Awards. Some viewers feel the movie does not accurately portray today's more modern India despite the fact poverty still is rampant there. Others are upset the movie, which cites seminal Bollywood films, has succeeded in the U.S. whereas the Bollywood greats have gone ignored. Critics and fans have celebrated the musical score of A.R. Rahman, an Indian musician.
