Introduction

"From the Rags to the Riches" Slumdog millionaire, directed by Danny Boyle is one of the best films I have watched in years. The story starts with "Jamal Malik" (main character), a youngster from the slums who is on the popular Hindi version of "Who wants to be a millionaire?" His main motive for being on the show is to find his lost love from childhood. Apart from being illiterate, he goes on to win the show. Apart from his victory, he is handed over to the police in suspicion of cheating. Once the police have him, they brutally injure him to make him tell how he cheated. ...read more.

Conclusion

The reasons behind the opposition from the Indian community would be "the oppression, prejudices, and economic exploitation within Indian life". The exploitation of the Mumbai slums may even offend some to an extent that they might to sue the director. Coming from that, the story is also too simple that it might even get a little boring for the young males in the audience. As young males mostly prefer action and thriller films and young females prefer more of a pure romantic type of film, it would not closely fit their criteria. Therefore, Slumdog millionaire is suitable for any audience as long as they are willing to face the realities found in the city of Mumbai, India and the little stories which go along with it. ...read more.
