SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. Jamal Malik is just one question away from winning a fortune on India’s version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” But how has this uneducated young man from the slums of New Delhi succeeded in providing correct answers to questions that have stumped countless scholars before him? “A Soaring Crowd-Pleasing Fantasy That’s a Tale of Unswerving Love”—Joe Morgenstern, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL; “Dazzling”—NY DAILY NEWS; “Sensational”—Leah Rozen, PEOPLE MAGAZINE; “Exhilarating”—USA TODAY; “Miraculous”—Roger Ebert.

Boyle uses an interesting technique to tell a story in 3 dimensions through flashbacks. An intense and often brutal film showing how a beggar in India could learn more on the streets than a college educated individual - if the right questions were asked. Overall, the film is well-assembled and moves quickly. The ending credits scene was out of place for the film, but meant as a nod to Bollywood.

Enjoyed some of it but eight Academy Awards seemed like a far reach since I never want to watch this again or own it. It's gone with the wind...

Sorry folks, I didn't get the hype that this was an Oscar-winning movie. In my opinion, the writing was bad, the acting was horrible, but it did have a good message and showed how terrible life in India is.

Entertaining, but Oscar's "Best Picture"??? Ya gotta be kidd
Anton Karidian | Toronto | 09/09/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"No doubt, this movie is entertaining, but is it an Academy Award winner for Best Picture? The acting is a bit stiff, the story is Ok, the cinematography is amateurish.
The story is very linear and straight forward....no surprises really.

It just seems that this film kinda went "viral" on the Academy and they jumped on the bandwagon and decided to purge themselves of guilt towards those that are impoverished and award this movie Best Picture. On the other hand, there wasn't that much to choose from in 2008."
