Slumdog Millionaire (2008)


When somebody asks me a question, I tell them the answer.

So basically: Jamal Malik becomes a contestant on the famous show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire to find his lost love, Latika. The episode ends right before the final question and he is dragged into a room for interrogation. The producers want to know how he got this far being a boy from the slums of Mumbai. In a series of flashbacks, Jamal's life is presented and it explains how he knew the answers to each of the questions.

The best thing about this movie is the score; it's absolutely stunning. That doesn't mean the rest of the film is bad, it's just not that great. I don't get the big deal about it. The love story was sweet but I didn't find myself caring for either of the characters. I am glad that it had a happy ending, tho, because I can see it being sad and then people liking it all the more - which is stupid, btdubs. The use of flashbacks to tell how he knew the answers was interesting, but only for curiosity’s sake.

This film is just alright and I don't think that this movie deserves to be on the list.

Ziggi seal of disapproval!
