Slumdog Millionaire begins with Jamal, a teenager who grew up in the slums of India. This is a genius idea that entails him going on to win 20 million rupee's on a game show. The people behind the scenes of the show question whether or not he cheated. He didn't lie at all, but there was a crazy coincidence: the answers to the questions on the show were based on what he went through in his life with his brother and a girl named Latika. This is a passionate story of finding lost love and realizing that one only needs to know what he or she has been through in life. It turns out that you don't need to be a rocket scientist to win a game show or maybe to even succeed. 3 and a half out of 4 stars.
