This movie is the heart wrenching tale of a person who has everything he ever loved taken away from him, only to try with everything that he has to regain his true love and gain more than he could ever hope. Most film lovers fear those words after Titanic because everyone thought it to be a predictable puppy love story, this love story however is made in strength and faith and you can’t help but keep wanting Jamal and Latika to be together. Danny Boyle has come up with some interesting cinema, certainly defining himself as someone above average. In another attempt to find Latika, Jamal tries out for the popular game show because he knows that she will be watching. The scenes of violence raise the same suspicion, and come off seeming sensationalized, however undoubted the reality they reflect. Video source from Moviesmobile. It is preformed and put together in such a way that it forgets and bypasses every love story cliche.
And what’s really sad is that these are the most highly-praised films of last year. As for those moaning about the love story, perhaps you have not found that person yet, get back to me when you do. Even though I saw the film a while back, I still remember it like I saw it yesterday. If we agree its a moral fable, then what on earth does he represent? A Mumbai teen reflects on his upbringing in the slums when he is accused of cheating on the Indian Version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire? There’s young Dev Patel as Jamal, playing with confidence, bringing a wonderful swagger to his role, as well as a sense of fear that we completely understand.
This story is told seamlessly.
They don’t get it, it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality, or in this case, lack of quality. Childhood friendship develops into love and the lovers are separated time and again by villains.
There is an element of freshness in the way the story is presented, as we accompany Jamal through his life odyssey from a young child in the slums to a man who is determined to save those he loves. But it is also much more. It is as though the intentions of this movie slumdot good enough to make it a “great” movie.
Rehman’s music is a mix of few average tunes from the great A. The only huge contrivance is the nature of the very last question and what happens when it’s asked, but by then the movie had me in its grasp and the ploy worked. The narrative then self-destructs, essentially becoming a thoughtless Bollywood dance movie.
It’s hard gerek be completely blown away by a film whose core message is about destiny and yiry on the fact that Jamal is simply fated to do this well in explaining what has unfolded, but greek any good film ought to, Boyle makes you a fan of the characters and not care as much about the logistics as you might normally do.
In the discussion after the film Boyle strongly recommended three Indian made films: He is a celebration of the culture of the dice, the casino, the lucky ticket. The little movie greeek will wow slumdoog this year. How disreputable is that for the show? There is one moment – and I shan’t subtitlez it for anyone, but you will know it when you see it – that very well might be my favorite film moment in the last five years.
We call this type of movies as “mas ala” in India. Sign in to vote. Indeed, Salim exists solely to do the dirty work of killing the bad guys so as not to interfere with the moral purity of Jamal. This film seems to go out of it’s way to make things extra-complex, as though it’s trying to cover up something that’s lacking He knows that the perfect mix of a great story and the respective imagery can provoke unforgettable memories in its audience.

Not a made man!
I went into seeing this knowing very little about it and the person I took with me didn’t know anything about it, so I’ll just say it’s about a young man that goes on Indias Who Wants to be a Millionaire, it’s a very unconventional film where they tell the story of his life in flashbacks while he plays the game. Its first act consists of several brief anecdotes, Boyle fetishizing the Dharavi slums, portraying poverty as a carnival of colours and soul-deadening action.
Having the children speaking in their native tongue makes perfect sense, especially because Boyle and Beaufoy depicts the realism of the kids’ lives. It plods around for quite some time as if it’s trying to make up for something that’s lacking There performances moved many to tears.
He picked the perfect actors, made the film wonderfully, and the whole crew seemed to enjoy making this together. It’s as if he is destined to win, even though he only went on the show yiry impress a girl he has loved his whole life, Latika. slumdoh
First off, this movie asks way too much of its audience as far as suspension of belief. I saw the film on at the Telluride Film Festival as a “sneak preview.

Our boy and girl embrace before the film erupts into a happy song and dance routine. Some people I know have problems over the fact that this movie takes place in India, but if you just for one moment let go of that and watch this movie you will instantly find out just how amazing this movie is.
Even though I am writing this review now in November, I hope that you will read this review when the film comes out officially in January and go out yifg see it.
Just about every aspect of this film deserves merit, and above all it belongs to Boyle, who managed to assemble such a massive achievement. Still, it is great enough to be listened to on its own. The film ends with all of rural India celebrating Jamal’s victory as though it were their own triumph. If I’m going to watch a meaningless movie, I’d rather it were a feel-better one. Prepare yourself to be overtaken by emotions as varied as joy, pity, happiness, anger, revulsion, surprise, and an exhilarating conclusion rarely seen in movies anymore.
Writing is that easy guys. Jamal is a boy from the slums of Mumbai who has reached the final question on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” against all odds. Is he fighting against people who use him?
Dev Patel has only one expression on his face when he is on the ‘chair’. First the Dark Knight and now this. And the third sutitles is done! This is why I love movies. This is conveyed in a series of flashbacks documenting the details of his childhood.
