TCP 2010- Blockbuster Movies "Slumdog Millionaire"

It's great to be back at Tuesday Couch Potatoes hosted by Kikamz. This week movie feature is about Blockbuster movies we have seen on theater or TV. I have seen quite a few movie that hits big time and one of those is the Slumdog Millionaire. I know it's kind of old movie from 2008 but what can I say I like this movie. The latest blockbuster movie that ring in the web is the Avatar. I heard it is really good but haven't seen this one yet and hoping to watch this on TV or tape perhaps soon.

Synopsis for
Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire is the story of Jamal Malik (Patel), 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 India¹s "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 (Pinto), the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show¹s questions.

Each chapter of Jamal¹s increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show¹s 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.

Nobody expected that such low budgeted indie film would make it big in Hollywood, with an Oscar to boast. I think it paved way for other indie movies too, like The Hangover, etc.

Check out mine too

yes, it's a low-budgeted film but one of the greatest movies i've seen. a real time eye opening movie.

We loved this movie, too. The story was well-written and resonated with viewers, but more so for us Pinoys, I guess. Thanks for sharing!
