Whadda movie, oh my god!!!Who says a slumdog can’t win a million…Any piece of shit could do that says the movie, the only thing you gotta know is the “answers”. An adaptation of the novel “Q&A” by Vikas Swarup,this movie is woven fine by some excellent storytelling by Danny Boyle and Co.
The movie starts off with the Jamal Malik(Dev Patel) in the hotseat of the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire hosted by Anil Kapoor, and is about to advance to the final round when the show, which is going out over the air live, breaks for the evening. Audiences have been watching this uneducated kid from the slums advance effortlessly through question after question, and some of them are getting suspicious: How could he know all these answers? He must be cheating. So the police arrest him and torture him — and that is not too strong a word for what they do to poor Jamal — to get him to confess. But Jamal won’t confess. He can’t. He’s not cheating. He knows all these answers, and he will explain how to the police inspector (Irfan Khan).
The very great pleasures of watching Slumdog Millionaire comes in discovering Jamal’s life…His entire life, that leads him to this stage where an answer could fetch him 20 million rupees. There is never a dull moment as all the scenes are woven together with such finesse that u keep carving for more. To add A.R.Rahman’s music is the fourth musketeer in the movie. His soundtracks are just awesome and makes u feel good. The acting by all the indian born actors is just awesome esp. that of the kids who play Jamal and his brother Salim at various incarnations. Their engaging acting and Danny Boyle’s verve of storytelling makes this movie an engaging watch no matter how predictable its ending is!!!. A must watch FEEL GOOD entertainer for all.
Hats off!! to Danny Boyle and Co-Director Loveleen Tandon for this Amazing movie.
