I didn't mean you "had" ruined it and you did do a good job of "asking" without giving it away (maybe you could give Que a few tips ).

If we say "too" much especially about that part, it won't be a surprise. And I agree!

I am also Indian, but i think their argument was more on the characterization that "the slumdogs had on themselves". I think it was depicted that people viewed themselves as low, when they really don't
