Slumdog Millionaire

Drama, Romance 2h 0m 2008

AroView: Exhilarating Oscar winner following the tumultuous life of a Mumbai streetkid who suspiciously triumphs on the Indian version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’.

Forced to reveal how he came to know the answers through a series of flashbacks, it’s an effective framing device that successfully integrates a variety of Western and Bollywood sugars and spices, while charged with a vitality that can only come from an authentic location shoot. Despite an ending that’s arguably “too good to be true”, it held sentimental sway with a huge worldwide audience as well as with The Academy, taking home eight Oscars in a charmed twist of fate that curiously echoes the film’s own parable. It is written, indeed.
