Slumdog Millionaire - Movie Review

I'm trying to watch a movie or two every week, and last week was Slumdog Millionaire. I've been hearing what a great movie this was so sister bought it on Boxing Day (only $5!).

Slumdog Millionaire is a romantic drama about Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), from the slums of Mumbai, who goes on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? He goes onto the million dollar question, so the game show host and police all believe he is cheating somehow. The movie plays out in flashbacks of Jamal's life, and you see how he knew the answers of the game show questions - because he lived through it. He is also trying to find his childhood sweetheart Latika (Freida Pinto), which was his reason for going on the gameshow in the first place.

It was an excellent movie, and very feelgood. Very interesting to see all the colours even in the slums!
