I don't get the hype

By mr314 on 11/15/2008

  • Overall Rating: 7

As this review suggests, the movie spirals into your typical Bollywood flick. That generic story is just well hidden underneath excellent cinematography and production, which is why I give it the high rating. Films like Salaam Bombay and City of God are much more powerful - the silly romance in Slumdog kills a lot of the grit and energy it began with. I recommend it because it's worth watching once, but still don't understand all the hype.

A must watch Movie

By rajesh_adept on 11/7/2008

  • Overall Rating: 10

Really nice movie and its review is very good I have download its wallpaper and photos A penniless young man has taken India by storm as he is on his way to winning 20 million rupees on India’s popular version of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”. But due to mistrust of the knowledge he shouldn’t possibly have, he is taken away by the police. It is there he explains to his captors how he could have all the answers. It all makes way for a tale of destiny yet unfulfilled in the guise of a young woman that he loves.
