Slumdog Millionaire: Winner All Along

Slumdog MillionaireThere’s no doubt that Slumdog Millionaire has lived up to its hype. What’s also amazing is that it took a British director to take a Bollywood movie to Hollywood, even though movies of similar caliber have been made but gone unnoticed.

Danny Boyle’s Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-nominated wonder starts in a crammy cell where the protagonist, Jamal Malik is interrogated at the behest of the game show host who thinks that he is a fraud. In flashbacks, Jamal tells the torturing cops about life in the slums with his brother Salim, the municipal school, his mother’s death, his tryst with the beggar industry, and basically why he knows the answers to all of the questions.

Slumdog Millionaire has you glued to the screen for most of the time. Unlike other Bollywood movies, it moves away from fantasy bringing viewers closer to reality, though at times it can get disturbing. From corrupt police to colloquial Hindi, sex workers, and riots, the movie gets to the core of the maximum city.

The 3 lead actors Dev Patel, Madhur Mittal and Freida Pinto do a decent job, though it’s the child actors of their characters that steal the show. While Ankur Vikal, the evil Maman, has heralded the age of a new kind of baddie.

Here’s a movie you can watch again and again and it’ll win you over each time.

    Yes, its really a watchable movie.Its really a wonderful movie with a great starcast consisting Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Madhur Mittal, Freida Pinto, Dev Patel. Also a wonderful work of direction given by Danny Boyle is one of the important aspect of the movie. Also with music of A. R. Rahman its really made it worthy. At last but the not the least the story written by Simon Beaufoy realizes us the fact of Indian slum and the poor people living over there.

    Overall, It desreves to be an Oscar winner….

    I would rate the movie over all 3/5 and the soundtrack 4.5/5. I find the story very ordinary but the direction and cinematography is good. The high point of the film is its music.
