Very up-beat, despite harrowing scenes of poverty and violence. Great music at the end, and beautiful colourful photography.
Slumdog Millionaire is a wonderfully uplifting film with a great plot. It is based on the story of a poor 'slumdog' who manages to get on 'Who wants to be a millionaire'. The structure is really interesting, taking you back into the main character's history. It is very eye-opening, revealing a lot about poverty and social depravity in India's slums. As well as a rags-to-riches story with a twist, it is an endearing love story, with the two main characters battling against the odds to pursue their romantic goals.
