Slumdog Millionaire ()

directed by
featuring Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Madhur Mittal, Anil Kapoor, Irfan Khan

Accused of cheating and desperate to prove his innocence, an eighteen-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai reflects back on his tumultuous life while competing to win 20 million rupees on India's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in Danny Boyle's inspirational drama. Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) may not have a penny to his name, but that could all change in a matter of hours. He's one question away from taking the top prize on India's most popular television game show, but as with everything else in Jamal's life, it isn't going to be easy. Arrested by police under suspicion of cheating, Jamal is interrogated by the authorities. The police simply can't believe that a common "slumdog" could possibly possess the knowledge to get this far in the game, and in order to convince them of how he gained such knowledge, Jamal begins reflecting back on his childhood. As young boys, Jamal and his older brother, Salim, lived in squalor, and lost their mother in a mob attack on Muslims. Subsequently forced to rely on their own wits to survive, the desperate siblings fell back on petty crime, eventually befriending adorable yet feisty young Latika as they sought out food and shelter on the unforgiving streets of Mumbai. Though life on the streets was never easy, Jamal's experiences ultimately instilled in him the knowledge he needed to answer the tough questions posed to him on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. And though Jamal makes a convincing case for himself, one question still remains: why would a young man with no apparent desire for wealth or fame be so determined to win big on a national game show? Of course, it won't be long until everyone finds out the answer to this burning question, because as Jamal sits down to find out whether he will be rich beyond his wildest dreams, 60 million viewers remain transfixed to their televisions eager to see if he'll correctly answer the final question. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

must see

by djesquire on Jul 14, 2009

I didn't see this until it had been out for a while. I enjoyed it a lot. It took a while to figure out exactly what was going on, but when I did, I appreciated the way the young man's life was shown in snapshots. Each snapshot revealed how he was able to answer correctly the questions he got on Millionaire. It also helped my appreciate hardships others, especially children, face in other countries.

Enlightening, Engaging

by fiddler on Jun 13, 2009

With all the awards under its belt, Slumdog isn't just any ordinary film. All the attention might make one feel it may be overrated, but I say, ignore the hype and treat the movie as it is. It may not be the best, but give credit where it's due. Good film. The sensational soundtrack and vivid visual effects strangle and suck in the audience.Venture into the dark side of India, the strife of poverty and survival, and you'll see a side of the world you never knew existed. But even in the most desperate of places, hope and happiness still linger. For global awareness, cultural understanding, and learning to appreciate what one has...the movie is worthwhile.
