Slumdog Millionaire is an against-all-odds love story and like all love stories it is based on loneliness, courage, hope, and destiny. It is a very clever movie that uses the popular game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire to highlight the hardships billions have to endure to survive.
Slumdog Millionaire is based on the people from the slums of India but it could be the slums anywhere in the world. The movie triumphs because it takes the viewer from sadness to improbable happiness. Slumdog Millionaire does have a happy end but the misery, evil and injustice the movie presents remains in the minds of the audience. Slumdog Millionaire is not a movie that was made to win awards or to highlight the skills of moviemakers but it was a movie that was made to touch your soul.
