[REL] Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

Postby FLL » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:21 pm  2 likes

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.


I won't bother going into much detail since it's becoming very well known, having just won Golden Globes for Best Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. I saw this in the cinema today and was blown away. Definitely recommend you see this in a theater (or a good home theater, once the DVD is available) for the full impact. This is not a typical FLM release, but the film follows the 18-year-old hero and his brother and a girl he befriends and falls in love with, in large part in flashbacks to when they were about 10 and about 14.

Just to be clear, this is really a "boy movie", even though two of the screenshots I posted were of the girl. In fact the biggest part of her role is actually in the 'present' after they turn 18.

The director, Danny Boyle, decided to have a lot of the dialogue in the slums of Mumbai be in Hindi (I assume) with subtitles that integrate into the movie very well. It adds a definite touch of realism.

Beware if you are sensitive about violence, this film received an R rating in the US due to the violence (some of it directed against children).

I normally leave DVD screeners alone, waiting until the DVD is available, but I couldn't wait to re-watch parts of this. I see some "property of" trailers but otherwise quite watchable.

Thanks FLL. Another one I would have given a miss but for my friends at FLM. Never even knew there was a young girl in this. :bigups

I just clarified my post above a little, I hope I didn't mislead you, this is a "boy movie" with the boy's love interest present in some scenes. The scenes I wanted to see again were for their overall drama and presentation. It's intense (the first half hour especially) and a very good movie overall, and because of the coming-of-age and the flashbacks I figured someone would post it here eventually.

It didn't hurt that I love gameshows, too. I have a few complete seasons of shows such as "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and "The Price is Right" on tapes somewhere. Recorded originally because I couldn't watch them because I was at work or travelling but I am a packrat/archivist at heart so I kept them all.

This movie has burst forward onto the scene suddenly, from festivals and limited release late last year to the point where it may well get some Oscars (if the Golden Globes are any indication). I had heard of it in passing without knowing what it was about, then this weekend I watched my DVRed recording of "At the Movies" from a week earlier and they had this as one of the ten best of the year, which made me take notice.

HMOG! Look at the number of sources. I think I'll wait until things slow down a little. :cool Don't want to attract undue attention from my ISP.
