Slumdog Millionaire

So many hype about this movie....i gotta watch it! And watch it, I did! Actually bee saw it first and recommended that i too see it.

Its not a dissappointment at all. Really good story. I do hope that they'll get some oscars. Bollywood have made their mark this time in Hollywood. This movie has actors and actresses that are not familiar but its ok with me.

(Source from The movie internet database) below is the summary of the movie.

The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show's questions. Each chapter of Jamal's increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show's seemingly impossible quizzes. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out. At the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

Go watch it. Its something different. I can't explain.
