Kind of disappointing

There's a lot of great movies in the theaters now, and I chose to see Slumdog Millionaire, which can reasonably called the most talked about movie of the season (at least among cinephiles), but I have to admit, it wasn't quite what I expected, especially since I really loved director Danny Boyle's 2004 movie, Millions. The whole fateful love storyline felt a little forced, especially toward the end (though I suspect it is very typical and very acceptable in Indian films). It was very well made and worth seeing, but I left feeling a tiny bit flat. Frustrating, since I'm in the mood to get blown away by something . . .
