Maybe the best movie I've ever seen.
Totally breathtaking.
Full of emotions, suspense & tension, not to mention the great cinematography, screenplay & directing.

Of course I should have known that, cause Danny Boyle is the director. For those who don't remember, Mr. Boyle also directed "Trainspotting".

A few words about the plot:

''Slumdog Millionaire is the story of Jamal Malik, a 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. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show?

When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out.'' (info taken from :

As for the soundtrack, it's also excellent. Mr. A.R. Rahman made the music for the film. The fact that it won the Oscar, didin't surprise me at all. It helps you ''dive'' into the movie for good and it keeps all of your senses alive. Get it here. The password is: "Mausam and Escap" is the track I marked.

To sum up, here are some quotes I can recall:
"...You're on a dream run."
"...D: It is written."
...Money and women. The reasons for make most mistakes in life."

Don't miss it for the world. 10/10.
