Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire

The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India’s “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost.

    Interesting review, on the blogger side, there are a lot of people who do not seem to like it, but obviously there are several more who do enjoy it. Also the fact that it is up for some oscars means it must be pretty good right?

    I liked the movie but I’m surprised at all the praise this movie is getting.
    It was good but the camera work in this movie really pissed me. Half the shots in the movie are slanted to the left or to the right. Come on danny boy, can’t you shoot strait!!!!!!
    And let’s not forget that the movie is very predictable.
    Good movie, but Cool minus for me.
