Jai Ho! An Unfortunate Oscar-Winning Song (and Dance)

Slumdog Millionaire: A carefully selected slide-show of movie stills from the 8 Oscar award winning Slumdog Millionaire, to accompany A. R. Rahman's 2009 double Oscar winn...

Despite the little-movie-that-could, “Slumdog Millionaire,” sweeping the Oscars on Sunday night, it was well-nigh impossible to find a really good online video of the amazing Bollywood-style dance routine done during the closing credits to the also award-winning song, “Jai Ho!”

(Even the Pussycat Dolls have covered the song, which loosely translates to “Victory.”)

Unfortunately, the A.R. Rahman tune (two well-deserved Oscars for him!) in the catchy song-and-dance number seemed to be subject to takedowns all over the Web just when it probably was a good time to put it out and generate even more box office buzz for “Slumdog.”

Wow they won 8 out of 10 oscars...that's really good. I was so happy and I still am. I mean there were actors who have been working very hard for years to get an oscar and they got 8, but I am not saying the slumdog millionaire crew didn't work hard, in fact they worked extremely hard.I love the movie and the songs.

it means "may victory be yours". which, in SD's case, is a perfectly fitting title :) this sound track was actually meant for the film and the director rejected it and rahman used the same track for slumdog which ended up at the oscars. thats fate
