Slumdog Millionaire (2008)





aningbo
Quote:
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. 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. At the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

Ratings at imdb: 8.7/10 from 30,383 votes and has Won 4 Golden Globes. Another 26 wins & 35 nominations...

I had my reservations about this movie, however I was dragged in for preview by a group of friends. I was amazed to see the movie and how good it was. It is amazingly good fun, dramatic has suspense and lot of colors. I recommend this movie not only because it shows that you can make a movie from very simple things that are around us but also that life and happiness everywhere, it is just a matter of realizing it.

well i was invited by a friend to watch this movie's 1st show and i too liked it. i especially liked it because every question in the quiz program was related to jamal's life and he answers them from experience rather then from reading or anything else. and i didn't like that the quizmaster tried to give the wrong answer to jamal, only his presence of mind helped him to get the right answer.

ya i think overall the movie is really good.
aningbo
obviously the quiz master added some fun to the twist and turnings. i dont understand him as to how he contacted the police.

also how did jamal guess the last question right? how come he was sitting alone in the railway station after winning 2 crore! man, its india and a celebrity doesn't do out alone!!
sana618
well i think the quiz master should not have done that because it makes the public think that if in reality too some of them do just the same, like giving false answers to the participants just because they are winning or calling the police or doing something equally bad, to get them out of the show.....

and if the participants tried to tell others then just think about it who would the people believe.....
the poor guy or the famous celebrity......

might aswell add to the topic that this topic contains SPOILERS!

i just heard from my friend that this movie has bagged 11 Oscar nominations, and three of them are in the music category, what a movie!! wow!
tony
I just came to this forum section to see if someone had made a post about it! It is my new favourite move; great movie! Go watch!

Out of the 2 crore, 30% goes to the channel, 30% goes to taxes etc. The winner is left with lesser than a crore.

But a prize money winner sitting along at the rail station is not unheard of.

Remember Ashutosh, the winner of MTV Roadies. After Roadies, he had nothing to do in Mumbai.
He used to travel in second class compartments, and sometimes spent the night on the road. (roadie? Laughing )
Even after winning Bigg Boss, he didn't have much money left after buying a house.
guissmo
Wow. Sounds like a good movie. I'll watch it when my hell week finishes. Neutral
crimson_aria
my friend from work recommended me this movie. she said it's awesome. never heard of this film until I read it in the newspaper. will watch it later.
atul2242
I saw the film.
It entertains but drags.

The kids are excellent and Patel has done a god job as Jamal.
But why does Salim die?

Basically it is just a compilation of
Stunty scenes edited in the MTV style
selling poverty.

Mr Boyle has no depth and is outrite crass
chunky predictable music too...
I wonder why these awards are so politically motivated now?
Confused
It is just reducing them to a farce.
guissmo
Hm, I don't think it's showing here in the Philippines. Does anyone know the schedule?
Parkour_Jarrod
Brilliant movie, it is really in depth as to the poverty and wealth in the same area for the Indian people, there people living on the brink of life by renting out a toilet to people for money, and a man that owns 60% of the city making highrise apartments

This film really tugs the heartstrings at some parts and makes good use of the song "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. especially the certain lyric
Quote:
All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money
Full Lyrics here

It shows that love can be thrown through all sorts of situations (family wise and romantically) and still comes out on top.

Though it was a bit confusing with the interrogations at times as it shows parts that if you didn't already have some background knowledge you would be confused at the time, but is explained better later in the movie.

I would rate this movie 4/5
r4inm4ker
It's a a pretty good movie, very entertaining, but I don't think it deserved so may Oscar, because the plot isn't that sophisticated, and not so original either.. If you change the actors into Americans, it'll feel like "just another Hollywood movie". Maybe the reason it got so many recognition is because it depicts India society very well..
but anway, congratulations to people of India for this great movie and the exposure it got.
Moshkin_Khan
It was an awesome movie, well worth watching. I like its story and think it deserved the awards its got. Very Happy
Defiance
yep, outstanding alot nominees on OSCAR 2009 and be the championship..

Great movie, director, and much more...
Rajiev
Although Slumdog Millionaire was a Great film, I've watched better. Even from India. I don't know why only it winded up with 8 Oscars :s perhaps Cos it was Directed by a brit :p You guys will get my point if you have being watching Indian movies, not Just Commercial ones, But some great stuff have being produced by India.

No kidding, Just Think a bit. The Film won 8 awards But Non Won by the Actors Surprised All won by the people who where in the Background. I'm not blamming anybody. But To my opinion, actors must play a major role in it. could Somebosy tell me how many nominations were there for actors ???

To somethings up, Look at the errors that were in the film :p

Quote:
* Factual errors: In the movie, the correct answer to the question of who wrote the song "Darshan Do Ghanshyam Naath" is shown as 16th century poet "Kavi Surdas". However in reality, this song is written by Gopal Singh Nepali for the movie Narsi Bhagat (1957). This song is also credited as traditional and originally written by 15th century poet Narsinh Mehta, whose life that film is based on. (Many, including the film, mistakenly attribute it to the 16th-century poet Surdas due to the fact that Surdas was blind and the song is a prayer asking God to "appear" before him, for his "eyes thirst for Your sight".)

* Audio/visual unsynchronized: In the scene where Javed is partying with his friends and Latika is held captive, the audio playing in the background is from the movie 'Don', whereas the visual shown on TV is from the movie 'Yuva'.

* Anachronisms: Although the events of the movie are set in the summer of 2006, the cricket match being played at Javed's house between India and South Africa was played in 2007.

* Continuity: When Salim and Jamal find Latika in the dance studio she is seen without and then with a nose ring.

* Anachronisms: The scene where Jamal tries to steal food, hanging upside down on the train shows a window which had removable bars (it's like a fire escape). These kind of bars were not installed until after the 2002 Gujarat riots.

* Anachronisms: The trains on which Jamal and Salim escape and live for many days have compartments painted in blue color. The blue color compartments came into existence at a later date. The compartments were painted Red back then.

* Anachronisms: In the scene where Salim and Jamal are working the crowds at the Taj Mahal, Jamal has a new $10 bill in his hand. It would be impossible to have a new bill in 2002 when they were issued in 2006.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: While driving the car after escaping from Javed and going towards meeting Jamal, the scar appears on right side of Latika's face although it is on left side of her face before the scene when Salim slips her hair and in rest of the movie. However, Latika's face is seen in the rear view mirror of the car; therefore, the scar on her left cheek appears to be on the right cheek.

* Revealing mistakes: When older Jamal punches older Salim, you can hear Dev Patel's British accent come out when he was yelling at him.

* Factual errors: The cricket match shown between India and South Africa was played in the Belfast, whereas the commentator says that its being played in the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

* Continuity: While in the police station Jamal drinks down a glass of Chai and sets it on the table in front of him. In the following shot the glass is full again.

* Factual errors: When Jamal explains the answer for "truth alone triumphs" question, Jamal asks the inspector for the price of Pani Puri, but the video shown is that of Dahi Puri.

* Continuity: When Jamal is asked by Latika to leave the mansion and forget about her, he accidentally pulls up one side of his collar when taking off his apron. However, in the next shot, his collar is down again. When he actually leaves the mansion his collar is up once again.

* Factual errors: When the policeman handcuffs Jamal to the chair he uses handcuffs that click shut. In India, Darby handcuffs are used.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: The young Salim and Jamal are shown to attend a primary municipality school in Mumbai. These schools do not have The Three Musketeers in syllabus. However, this could have been a school that was built in the slums by an external organization such as a charity.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Both Jamal and Salim speak fluent English when they're teenagers. The movie was originally supposed to all be in English, yet the actors that played young Jamal and young Salim had some trouble with speaking English. Director Danny Boyle asked producers to have the beginning in Hindi, and colored the subtitles to make them more appealing. From the storyline, Jamal and Salim probably learned from tourists.

* Anachronisms: The movie shows news reports from Live India, a television channel. The plot says that is 2006, but Live India was launched in 2007. It was previously called Janmat.

* Anachronisms: At the end of the last song and dance sequence on the railway platform, hoardings for shows on NDTV Imagine (and entertainment TV channel) are prominent. NDTV Imagine launched in 2008 and the promotion could not have began in 2006 - the year where the story of the film happens in.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In one scene, when teenage Salim and Jamal are at the Taj Mahal, there is an external shot where a passing guard looks at the camera and says, "Stop filming. Stop filming." This was included purposely by director Danny Boyle for the sake of realism.

* Factual errors: At the end of the movie when Javed is with his bunch of girls and asks them to dance to the song 'Aaj Ki Raat' which is from the movie 'Don - The Chase Begins', the television actually shows the song 'Fanaa' from the movie 'Yuva'.

* Factual errors: The movie is clearly made for a Western audience, because the Indian number system (which would be used in an Indian show) would write 10 million as 1,00,00,000 not as 10,000,000. It would be called "1 crore." The term 10 million would not be used.

* Revealing mistakes: You also hear Dev Patel's British accent when he tells the host (Anil Kapoor) in the bathroom that he will "not be a million-ahe."

* Continuity: A large pimple on the right side of Jamal's face appears then disappears then reappears, depending on whether he is being interrogated by the police or is answering questions as a television game-show contestant, even though those events supposedly occurred in the plot within a span of just a few hours.

* Continuity: The host used the expression "cell phone", which is mostly used in North America, while India and most of the Commonwealth world uses "mobile phone".

* Plot holes: The original TV show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" is recorded in studio some days before the actual broadcast. The show that we see in the film is broadcast live, which raises the incongruence that the person from home can easily see the question on TV having plenty of time to come up with an answer before receiving the actual call. this explains the need to have the questions reread on the phone, and the credibility of the time limit. Moreover, the call itself is never directed to a mobile number, to prevent connection troubles, and for the same reason it's never issued directly when the contestant asks for it; the call is first made in the very moment the contestant begins his round and it's then kept live (but soundless) until the contestant calls for the hotline. As a side fact, after the hotline has been used the contact is still kept so the contestant's people can hear live what happens from then on.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: After revealing the answer to the question of which cricketer has scored to most first class centuries, the host reveals that Jack Hobbs scored 197 centuries. In fact, he famously fell one short of the 200 milestone by scoring 199 centuries. However, both figures can be accepted as correct. The Association of Cricket Statisticians and History, in 2006, revised the status of many 19th Century and pre-War matches, which produced new statistics, giving Hobbs 199 first-class centuries. However, Wisden, often seen as the "cricketing bible", declined to recognise the new figures and still records Hobbs as scoring 197.

* Factual errors: In the final question the name of Alexandre Dumas in incorrectly spelled Alexander.

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Jack Hobbs (the question about cricketers scoring first class centuries) is partly correct with the answer of 197. Jack Hobbs has stated that although 199 were done in a technical sense, as 2 of these were in exhibition matches they should not count and as such have never been officially recognized by Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. A quote from Jack, 'Don't include those,' he told the late John Arlott. 'They were exhibition matches. Vizzy wanted to list our hundreds on the walls of his pavilion. We knew we'd got to score hundreds - so did the bowling side. They were not first-class in any sense.'

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Jamal is uneducated and yet he can read and write. We see this in his job at the telemarketing firm. He also mentions that he can read while on the Millionaire Show. However, it isn't unreasonable to assume that they attended school and learned to read and write before their mother was killed. Indeed, Jamal says that he can read when asked about "The Three Musketeers".

* Continuity: When Jamal is at the front gate of Javed's house and is telling the guard that he is the new dishwasher, his shirt changes from a dark patterned long-sleeved button-up shirt to a lighter blue short-sleeved button-up shirt. When Jamal enters the house, he is wearing the long-sleeved shirt again.

* Factual errors: The "Millionaire" format is sold worldwide with the same rules, with small variations, like the amount of the final prize to adjust for the currency value. One rule is the presence of the two milestone - or "parachute" - questions (#5 and #10), to prevent the contestants' prize from falling further if they answer wrong. Yet the host keeps mentioning that if Jamal answers wrong he will "lose everything" or "get nothing".

* Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): in the hotel scene, after the fight, Salim puts the gun to Jamal's head. Salim says that the gun he is using is a Colt 45. A Colt 45 is a handgun, but Salim's gun is a revolver.

* Anachronisms: In the scene where the boys are giving tours, Salim is handed a new U.S. ten dollar bill, which would not have existed when the scene is supposedly taking place.

* Boom mic visible: In the room where Latika is dancing, when Jamal and Salim come to free her and Maman shows up with his tough guys, a boom mike operator can be seen in the mirror in several shots.

It seems like a nice movie, I'll watch it when it comes out. Btw is this an indian movie (the stars looks Indian to me) If it is this will be the first Indian movie I watched.
crimson_aria
^ Yes it's an Indian movie.

My sister watched the movie this afternoon and I'm gad that she liked it as much as I did.
Rajiev
Well, You cant Call it a 100% Indian Movie cos apart from the Actors and the story (based on India) the whole thing is not so Indian.

most of the crew including Directors, editors are Europeans. Smile

So some can say this is a Indian movie, Others say its not. But anyone cant say its 100% Indian :p
redslazers
I loved the movie as well, was really interesting but when my sister went and watched it (13) she was nearly in shock afterward probably to much violence for her to handle lol
vanbakl
i like too Very Happy
dickyzin
It sounds like a very good movie. I will most probably go watch it this weekend. Is this movie out on DVD yet?
thekidsareokay
i have to say the best part of the movie for me was the soundtrack. MIA is so apt on the soundtrack and the bollywood scene at the end was ace. it was so unexpected considering the whole movie was so serious and kinda tragic. then suddenly they all start dancing at the end.
soljarag
I thought it was pretty good... not the best movie ever... but good Smile
melind
I really want to see Slumdog Millionaire. Almost everyone I know has seemed to have seen it and most of them love it. Smile

Thats MY Exact point.

Some Great films lost their awards just for showing a tire track on the dessert or a tiny plane in the sky.

Yet Slumdog manage to bypass all those and most amusingly got the award for best editing Surprised

WTF :p

I think The awarding committee has being changed recently :p Razz
nobodybaert
I LOVE that movie ! One of the best ones i ever have seen !
Lucy
This movie was amazing 5/5 Kept my intrest till the very end! a must see...
love_her_freida_pinto
The movie was awesome and i loved Freida pinto's role in it, she lightened it up. Pretty ironic how freida and dev patel are also going out with each other as well in real life. She's got everything going for her at the moment with her new movie "miral" and the untitled Woody Allen film and she is also going to be the new face or loreal comsetics,hope to see her in some ads
RipperGOD

And A.R. Rehman has give better music than Slumdog.......for eg. GURU!
