Summary: An orphan from the slums is one question short of winning 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" when he is whisked away by police who suspect him of cheating. By telling the story of his life, he explains every answer he has given - but there is much more than money on his mind. This movie has won 8 Oscars and to me that is okay but I think the dark knight should have won more.
Summary: Danny Boyle continues to reinvent himself. Slumdog Millionaire is an example of pure, old-school filmmaking, transposed into impoverished India. The director tells a classic story of love, revenge, and redemption, using mostly unknown actors and settings. The result is an emotionally-charged and, ultimately, triumphant and brilliantly staged film, easily the best film of 2008 and fully deserving of its Best Picture Oscar.
Excerpt: "Slumdog" Jamal who grew up on the streets of Bombay is at the brink of winning the grand prize of India's version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire when is is "questioned" by the police suspecting fraud. Danny Boyle's latest and highly acclaimed project has a lot of the energy that marked his debut.
Summary: I did not expect this movie to be as good as it was.It definitely deserved an Oscar.Its just a shame while everybody is making $$$ off this movie, The kids in this film are still living in shacks
Excerpt: A foreign film based on the manipulation of a game show and the love of 2 individuals. Obviously, the cinematography of the film really brought out the “slum” areas of India. It likewise showed how BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) companies have been booming in the said country. The movie focuses on the life Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), a former street child who was given the opportunity to play for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
Summary: Best movie I've ever seen, I think. I wanted to cry the whole time. I literally couldn't breathe at the end. So brilliant. So romantic. So perfect. So engaging. A fairytale of epic proportions. I don't think I've ever cared so much about a movie. It deserved every Oscar it won and more. If I could marry this movie, I would. I want to make sweet sweet love to this movie.
Summary: this film, Slumdog millionaire, is a very admirable movie. I like it very much!! all questions ask from the program, ''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'', to Jamal are related to his childhood years. The best Boyle's films I watched.
