Slumdog Millionaire


Watch it.

It’s beautifully scripted, with brilliant acting, awesome scene shots plus it offers great insight into the past 30 years or so of changes that India has gone through.

It’s Bollywood meets Hollywood… on Hollywood’s terms, at least this time round.

The plot centres  on a Muslim Indian man, who grew up in the slums, who appears on India’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn how the contestant knows the answers to all of the questions.

Of course, there’s the typical Leftist Hollywood bullshit factor but surely we’ve all learned to deal with that… and thus, it is a really really good movie.

PS Apparently the thing is up for an Academy Award. And so it should be.

UPDATE

Slumdog Millionaire has won seven BAFTA awards, including Best Film.
