    yes, its an awesome film and the music is just..........awesome

    The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show's questions. Each chapter of Jamal's increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show's seemingly impossible quizzes. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out. At the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

    Its a really good film, definitely worth watching IMO!

    left me totally cold-I so wanted to like it cos danny boyle is a great director but I just didnt get this at all and simply cannot understand the great hype its getting for oscars. just my tuppenceworth tho-I know plenty people love it.

    [COLOR="Magenta"]it took ages for me to get into it ,but when i did i enjoyed it [/COLOR]

    it was ok, not as good at the naked gun

    Never a film I would have chosen to watch, even if it was shown for free on tv. However, my sister got 2 tickets on tellten or somewhere like that and invited me along. To my suprise, I really enjoyed it!! I would definately (and have been) recommend it!

    It's good however will advice to see new brat pitt movie Benjamin buttons case. It's Awesome, very goooooodddd must see :)))

    I thought it was a good film, but I'm not convinced it deserves all those nominations.

    Deserved all nominations, great acting, especially from the novice child actors.

    Ben Button was far too long

    will definately watch it then..anyone seen seven pound what you think....i thought that was hard to get into

    i watched 7 pounds i enjoyed the film its just a shame i worked out what was going on really early but saying that i havent watched a film in ages that i enjoyed so i was surprised
    my oh wants to watch slumdogs keeps going on his just got to convince me to watch it cant make up my mind so i keep my eye on this thread perhaps it might convince me to watch it

    dont know what the fuss is all about, all bollywood movies revolve around this theme, poor boy meets girl, girl gets kidnapped by bad guy, song and dance number in between, boy gets girl at end.
    it is new to the western viewers seen this in many other bollywood movies, the millionaire quiz host guilty of overacting.
    i see danny boyle has found a gap in the market, cross over of bollywood to mainstream cinema, credit to that.
