must see

I didn't see this until it had been out for a while. I enjoyed it a lot. It took a while to figure out exactly what was going on, but when I did, I appreciated the way the young man's life was shown in snapshots. Each snapshot revealed how he was able to answer correctly the questions he got on Millionaire. It also helped my appreciate hardships others, especially children, face in other countries.

Enlightening, Engaging

With all the awards under its belt, Slumdog isn't just any ordinary film.

All the attention might make one feel it may be overrated, but I say, ignore the hype and treat the movie as it is. It may not be the best, but give credit where it's due. Good film.


The sensational soundtrack and vivid visual effects strangle and suck in the audience.Venture into the dark side of India, the strife of poverty and survival, and you'll see a side of the world you never knew existed. But even in the most desperate of places, hope and happiness still linger.

For global awareness, cultural understanding, and learning to appreciate what one has...the movie is worthwhile.
