I knew before I saw this movie that I was going to like it and I wasn´t wrong. IT has a very original plot that shows a beautiful love story, a story with a harsh background, the slums of Mumbai. Many current issues in India are denounced : child explotation, extreme poverty, people living among the rubbish, killings of muslims, drug trafficking, corruption etc.
All starts with a teen from the slums becoming a contestant of the tv programme "who wants to be a millionaire", a teen who is not expected to know all answers and when he does, he is suspected of cheating. Yaman, explains throughout the movie how an youngster from the slums knew all the answers. Each answer had an association with his hard life.
IT´s not a movie with great actors or visual effects, it´s the content of it what makes it different. Yamannnnnnnnnnnnnnnn..!!i also like the soundtrack and the dance at the end when they show the credits..so bollywood style! i do hope this movie wins many more well-deserved awards!
