Slumdog Millionaire - movie review

IMDB User Rating: 8.7/10

My verdict: (*** SPOILER ALERT ***)
Danny Boyle, the director of Trainspotting, shows brutal(somewhat real) India through the eyes of a chaiwaala (office assistant). Movie is good, most of the movie is realistic but lacks a little logic here and there. All the events leading to the answers to the questions asked in the TV programme are in chronological order with question numbers, which is kinda movie-ish. Just like any H(b)ollywood movie, the director resorted to have a happy ending which is quite a crowd puller in India and in many other parts of the world but he could have done better with the final question's answer. If I were him I would have made him lose the game but still not repent for that since he got back the love of his life. Movie is very much watchable. Just watch it :)
