What is the movie Slumdog Millionaire about?
Set in present day India, “Slumdog Millionaire” is an adaptation of the book “Q & A” by Vikas Swarup. Masterfully directed by British filmmaker Danny Boyle, this lush production tells the tale of Jamal Malik, a young man from the slums of Mumbai who achieves great success on the Indian version of the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” game show. Being poorly educated, he is suspected of cheating and detained by the police who interrogate him on the source of his knowledge. Throughout the movie he explains how he knows the answers and how they all relate to the events in his own life. Each question and the subsequent answer shed more life on his fascinating life story. The flashbacks tell the tale of Jamal, his brother Salim and their lifelong friend and Jamal’s eternal love Latika, from their miserable lives on the slum streets, to their eventual separation and Salim’s rise through the ranks of the most dangerous crime lord in Mumbai. The last question brings us back to the present moment, revealing that the story is still far from finished and that its resolution is very much in the hands of the ruthless crime lord who Salim works for. Will Jamal manage to win the grand prize and reunite with the love of his life?

I tend to enjoy dark movies because the emotional reaction is greater for me than that of "happier" movies, for lack of a better word. Slumdog Millionaire, however, makes a powerful case for "happy" movies. Slumdog Millionaire is a wholly life-fulfilling epic about destiny and love that is expertly directed and colorfully shot. And when the film cuts rapidly in a hazy stop-motion-like effect, and the color from the streets reflects on our fated protagonists, and the music kicks in overwhelmingly, its hard not to leave with a smile on your face- and tears in your eyes.

was very much impressed by this movie! I cried a lot, i laughed i was happy and at the same time i was very worried for Shamile (the main hero of the movie). The subject line: Jamal leaves in India and he wins twenty millions of rupees in the show “Would you like to become a millionaire”. But people do not believe him, they think that he won the money in a wrong way, that he lied in order to win. And this way people start humiliating him, because they are sure he cheated while answering on the show. But they are wrong! He told them where from did he knew the answers on the question that he was asked. Those answers he got due to the cruel life’s experience. In his stories he reveals how his mother was killed, and how he was begging in the streets, and how people are torturing other people in India, and how once he met a girl, a girl that he fell in love with, her name was Latica. I highly recommend this movie to everyone, especially to romantic natures, as beside the interesting information it also has a nice love story!

This movie is a typical fairy tale for the adult people, and it is very important to understand that! And i underline the fact that i do not say it is a bad movie. I don't like the reviews that state this movie is very vital, i can say that in reality it is for people who are not able to think, and are too easy to impress, for them this movie can become a real “something”.
This movie is filmed very well, and the subject line in it is very well considered. The performance of the actors is also very good. It was quite unusual for me to watch it. I enjoyed the mix of Hollywood with Bollywood. It is simply a good movie. The thing i didn’t like was the mix of genres, of drama and melodrama. It made it look like a soap opera in some moments. Also i was irritated by the mood of this movie, but i already mentioned that earlier, so i guess there is no point to get back to this issue anymore. I think that if the film director had set the genre of movie, than there wouldn’t be those twists in it.

Jamal and his brother are poor Indian boys on whose eyes their mother dies. This way they stay alone, almost along, as there is also a little girl with them, and together they are fearless same as three musketeers. There is a lot of pain, lack of justice and a variety of creepy men on the way of those three brave children, but the most difficult thing for them was the fact that they had to separate and meet each other again many years after. The crucial moment in the movie was Jamal’s participation in the show “Who wants to be a billionaire” in which he shows amazing knowledge of various matters, he knows all the answers and that is his life. And he wins the game by winning millions. But what is the use of those money if there is no love?
This movie is amazing! I haven’t ever seen such a brilliant performance of such small children. It is taped in a unusual manner, as it is obvious that it was made to show better the dynamics. Also i loved all the songs to the movie, the compromise of all those things has made it a real masterpiece! It is a must to watch it.
