Slumdog Millionaire

Here's why this movie rocks:

It's a surprise.

That's what's so good about this film. So, if I tell you anything about it, you'll lose one of the key ingredients. Here's what you already know:
  • It's wildly popular.
  • It takes place in India.
  • It's something about Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
  • There's a beautiful actress, and a sloe-eyed actor in the lead roles.
  • You expect to feel good at the end because everyone talks about it in a happy way.

Honestly, I can't stand when a movie is spoiled by either too much hype, or too much information. I offer you my hype-less, information-poor report. With one warning: don't expect utter happiness from this movie. In our current movies, it seems we need to be hit on the head and dragged around before we can get our happy on. Be prepared. And enjoy.

  1. I saw this movie before there was any hype out there whatsoever. I was horrified, enthralled and bewitched. I think after this movie and THE NAMESAKE I am becoming quite a Bollywood fan.
    Thank you.
