I just watched Slumdog Millionaire today and was happy to realize that the all the hype about it was was valid. The movie is a great way to spend 2.5 hours and one of the most memorable movies ever. It really deserves the four golden globes that it won and I would be rooting for it to win in the Oscars too.
The movie is about the life of a boy from the slums and depicts very well the living conditions of the poor in the Sub-Continent. Although from the reviews I read, it was portrayed to be a love story (which it is), but it mostly focuses on the life of a boy and his brother who lost their mother in front of their eyes. It is a story about survival making choices and of course love. All in all, a very touching story with a great soundtrack. A wonderful way to enjoy and a good insight into life of those not a lucky as we are.
I would rate it as 10/10. Its hard to find movies such as these.
