Slumdog millionare

With its awards Sunday, "Slumdog Millionaire" emerged as the potential film to beat at the Academy Awards, an unexpected position for a movie with a cast of unknowns and a story set among orphans and criminals on the streets of Mumbai.The picture slumdog millionare was filmed in India with a budget of only $14 million and has no big-name actors, and about a fifth of it is in Hindi.

It swept all four categories it was nominated for at the Globes, including best picture, director, screenplay and best original score.

British director Danny Boyle’s film won four trophies, including those for best film and best director.

Best original score composer AR Rahman became the first Indian to win a Globe and Simon Beaufoy won best screenplay foe the movie slum dog millionaire.

The Globes are often regarded as an indicator of the films and actors who are favoured to win at the Oscar

"It is an excellent film which depicts real poverty and real life in India. Moreover, Rahman winning the award will take India on to a different platform. His music was internationally recognised but now it will be different."

"Is this really happening to me? My first film wins four Golden Globes? I just can’t believe it," co-star Freida Pinto gushed to reporters backstage as she stood among her collaborators, including Danny Boyle, who won the best-director prize.

The story "slumdog Millionare"

Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) may not have a penny to his name, but that could all change in a matter of hours. He’s one question away from taking the top prize on India’s most popular television game show, but as with everything else in Jamal’s life, it isn’t going to be easy. Arrested by police under suspicion of cheating, Jamal is interrogated by the authorities.

The police simply can’t believe that a common "slumdog" could possibly possess the knowledge to get this far in the game, and in order to convince them of how he gained such knowledge, Jamal begins reflecting back on his childhood. As young boys, Jamal and his older brother, Salim, lived in squalor, and lost their mother in a mob attack on Muslims.

Subsequently forced to rely on their own wits to survive, the desperate siblings fell back on petty crime, eventually befriending adorable yet feisty young Latika as they sought out food and shelter on the unforgiving streets of Mumbai. Though life on the streets was never easy, Jamal’s experiences ultimately instilled in him the knowledge he needed to answer the tough questions posed to him on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. And though Jamal makes a convincing case for himself, one question still remains: why would a young man with no apparent desire for wealth or fame be so determined to win big on a national game show? Of course, it won’t be long until everyone finds out the answer to this burning question, because as Jamal sits down to find out whether he will be rich beyond his wildest dreams, 60 million viewers remain transfixed to their televisions eager to see if he’ll correctly answer the final question.

    I loved the movie but I hate reading that the youngest co-stars are not getting what they deserved for being part of a movie that is making multi-millions. If I had the knowledge of this when the movie came out, I would not have gone to see it. It would seem that the industry is doing its part to exploit the very people that the movie should help. When I walked away from the movie I felt I had been enlightened to what these children are experiencing, but now I feel part of the problem of using those same people.

  3. Together with every thing that seems to be developing within this specific area, your perspectives tend to be very exciting. However, I appologize, but I do not give credence to your whole idea, all be it radical none the less. It looks to everyone that your remarks are actually not entirely validated and in actuality you are yourself not wholly confident of your argument. In any case I did appreciate reading through it.
