Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire

Tried to watch this movie a month plus ago, but after being reminded by IMDB‘s MOVIEmeter Top 10 list (#6 on the list recently), I was finally able to get a hold of Slumdog Millionaire & dedicate a good 2 hours to watch it.  Lately, I’ve been watching movies while distracted by other things I’m working online or the stock market.  However, I was really able to focus on this one which does help improve my appreciation for whatever flick I end up watching.

The story shows how a boy grew up in Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay), India without parents.  His mom was killed and he struggled to survive with his “brother” and his “love” who he is separated from multiple times while growing up.  The story is told while he is being interrogated and interviewed by the police since he was under suspicion for cheating on the Indian version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.”

The story was really well told and the cinematography was of high quality with the story not slowing down or having too many lulls.  While the story could feel like a cliche’, instead the scenes going back and forth were timed well and by the end, you feel good for the main character and his love.  While somewhat unrealistic – the reactions by the police to the story or some of the situations, the grisly reality of life in Mumbai definitely is exposed and does make you feel good and possibly the many millions who live there that there is the potential for success despite the conditions that people live in there.
