SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (2008)
Danny Boyle is one of my favorite Directors of all-time. His films always reflect adventure and humanity. In his latest feature “Slumdog Millionaire”, Boyle accomplishes the best work of his career. The movie tells about a story of a boy who cruising the rough life in India. As we know, the poverty has been one of the essential problems in the third-world like India. Thiz picture has won 8 Oscars, including prime categories in Best Picture, Director, and Adapted Screenplay. Its Begins at present time, Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) has been taken into police custody, after he was accused of cheating in the game show “Who Wants to be A Millionaire”. His knowledge to answer all the questions makes them curious. The adventure begins when Jamal tells the story of his life where all the events in his previous experience lead him to the quiz answers. It starts from Jamal’s childhood that tells how her mother died tragically in a riot. After that, young Jamal had to learn how to live in the street. He was accompanied by his brother Salim (Madhur Mittal) and a girl named Latika (Freida Pinto). Later we know that his motive to participate in thiz game show is to find Latika. The story adorn with friendship, betrayal and love. The plots in overall is not naive at all, it also reminds us that life is not always fair. The fact behind the movie-making is so ironic. Some of the Cast members still have to live in the slum, somewhere in Bombay. But they are having the full time education now. I heard that the movie makers wanted to keep the money in trusted fund, so when they turn the age of 16 or 17 they will get their full salary which is about $100.000 each. I really comprehend the idea that the only way to win “Who Wants to be A Millionaire” is just like the story in thiz movie. Maybe I couldn’t have all the knowledges in the world, but if you ask me about something that I have experienced before in my life...Yes, I can answer!
