1 dAy IN mUMbAi 4 sLUmDoG mILLiOnArE!!!

Danny boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire" hits the ground running. This is a breathless, exciting story, heartbreaking and exhilarating at the same time, about a Mumbai orphan who rises from rags to riches on the strength of his lively intelligence. The film's universal appeal will present the real India to millions of moviegoers for the first time.

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. Intrigued by Jamal's story, the jaded Police Inspector begins to wonder what a young man with no apparent desire for riches is really doing on this game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question..then i won't tell...but you can guess the ending perfectly.

A.R Rahman's music is awesome as usual. .Slum Dog Millionaire is one of the most powerful, entertaining and soul searching movies I've ever seen. I can't say enough good things about it... The cast, the director, the cinematographers, the editors, the wardrobe and makeup people, you name it, it was all spectacular. The children actors stole my heart, and the scene with the young boy singing at the train station -and I won't give anything way.. but this child tugged at my heart strings like never before. Man!! Please go see this movie, I plan on seeing it again in mumbai. I have to make my piece with it, and I hope these young actors will get the recognition they deserve, as well as the director and others involved with this project. This movie ROCKS!....
