P.S. Spoilers ahead …. 😀

This is a story of a impoverished Indian boy  who started his life in the slum of Mumbai and somehow landed up in a show “Who wants to be a millionaire” ….. More than the show , the story is about the incidents that young Jamal Malik go through ….. The director Danny Boyle has more than succeeded in drawing the real life portrait of a poor boy (referred to as slumdog by many) , his life and Indian society …..

So , the boy Jamal makes it to the show “Who wants to be a millionaire ?  ” somehow, not for any desire of money but for his love to see him …… and he  happens to hit the jackpot …. he is able to win 10 million rupees…… but the host Anil Kapoor could not digest the fact and gets the boy  arrested for fraud …..

The cop Irfan Khan interrogates him for the clue and in Jamal’s words “If You would  ask me the question …. I will give you the answer” …… he explains how an uneducated boy like him  happens to know all the answers to the question …. how he happened to know whose picture is portrayed on a 100 $ bill , but didn’t knew whose face it is on a 1000 Rs. note …… how he happened to know who invented revolver …. how he knew where was the Cambridge Circus …… how he knew the answers to all the seemingly impossible tricky questions ….. how he recalled the incidents of his life to tell the answers to the questions ……

Everyone is convinced and the boy is realeased …. He makes it back to the show for the final question ….. the final question for 20 million Rs…..whole nation glued to the TV set ….. Here comes the final question …… can he answer this question ???? ….. Can a slumdog be a millionaire ???? ….. find it out yourself !!! ….

This movie is nominated for 4 golden globes and has already won many awards ….I will give it a 4 out of 5 …..
