Most of the people around the World loved Dany Boyle's 2008 production, which received about 8 Academic Awards and a lot of critical acclaim.
I personally totally disliked. They said that the story was compelling and moving however, it was hard to find it any different than usual Bollywood fairy tales. These usually end with a boy and a girl finding each other after fighting with the so called World around them. Western people have always laughed at Bollywood for it's ridiculous love stories. Then why not this time?
So it may not be for everyone, maybe you'll have to see it for yourself to see why some didn't like this raved about film.
