Anticipation: SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE!!!!!1

nita and ram

Haha, so I get to see Slumdog Millionaire TODAY and I'm queasily overly EXUBERANT!! I already bought and read the book, and it was like astronomical, like holy sh*t amazing! And I don't, I'm just very excited right now :))))))))).
Deep Breath, Estella. Yeah, that's it. Breathe. Just Breathe.
Oh man, I wanna see Slumdog!!!
And one thing, I don't really get - in the novel, the game show the guy is on is called "Who Will Win A Billion" or 3WB. If its about winning a billion dollars, then why is it called Slumdog MILLIONAIRE. Like, gosh, get it right! Another thing that they probably changed into movie version is the story theme. Like I think the movie is about destiny and love and all that, but the book, let me tell you has like, only HALF of a (long) chapter about love.
P.S. Like I hate to brag (er is this even considered bragging?!) but my sister's friend's second cousin is that girl in the picture above. She is I'm guessing a main character because, well she's on the movie poster cover thing, and well yea, I just know. Uhm, her name is Freida Pinto and she plays Nita, the prostitute, Ram Mohammad Thomas' love. OH MY GOSH I WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!

Anyway, I guess I'll just settle for this remake of some song from the movie from the Pussycat Dolls.

And I'm not gonna rate this song, becasue its not really a music post.
Song - 7/10 (Anh, I did it anyways)
Video - --

Correction: Freida Pinto actually plays Latika, the lost love of Jamal. The stuff I said above was from the book, so yeah. Different.

Is the book any good? I wanted to see the movie, but I never got the chance nor the time to. I'm reading Blindness before I watch the movie, it's really good so far.
