– 4 and a half out of 5 stars

Bet most of you heard of Slumdog Millionaire amidst all the Oscar buzz.

This is the story of Jamal Malik, who lives in the slums and yet knows all the answers on the widely-televised ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ and hence, has been caught for suspicion of cheating. He gets tortured during interrogation and it all stops until the inspector decides to use the ‘soft’ approach on him. He questions Jamal on how he came to know of the answers and you will realize that Jamal’s had a really hard life going on for him. His childhood and adolescent years can amaze you when you see what people can do for survival. One question away from 20 million rupees, he answers the question despite not knowing the answer and you learn why he appeared on the show and even made the phone call (life line) at all. The endearing part is about him and Latika, who have been separated so many times and I’m glad they did their traditional Bollywood dancing during the credits. =)
