Slumdog Millionaire – a trendsetter of its times

Some movies become trend setters:

Certain movies are bound to make it to the top!

We are not talking about the box office collection alone here. We are talking about the creative pursuits of the crew and the cast. The ambitious project is a cross cultural movie that was shot in various parts of the world.

We are also talking about the Ufindthem path breaking direction by a British bigwig Danny Boyle who won the Academy award for the best direction and the premise is the humble and impoverished Indian slum or a housing project for the have-nots. The film is mostly shot in India with part of it being shot in various parts of the world including places in Europe and the Americas.

The movie is based on a book:

This 2008 Hollywood production is actually based on a novel by Vikas Swarup by the same name. The movie’s screenplay has been done to perfection by the well known screenplay writer Simon Beaufoy. The cast included the British born actor Dev Patel who debuted in the movie and the Indian actor Freida Pinto who has since moved to the British movie scenes and making ripples there with her matured and scintillating performances.

The movie's screenplay:

The screenplay was taut and the music score which was done by a well known Indian music composer called A. R Rahaman also won great accolades at the Grammies. In all, the movie has been able to make a great mark for itself by not helping its cast and the crew to win those beautiful ladies which they kiss and cherish for a life time but also touching the audience’s hearts in million different ways.

The movie plot:

The movie’s plot revolves around a teen called Jamal who is from a humble background. Communal riots in the city cause him and his younger brother to become orphans. From the very beginning, the two youngsters face a lot of difficulties and by the turn of fate are able to save their skin from one or the other life threatening situation that comes their way. They also have a female mate called Latika, played by the dusky beauty Pinto who is incidentally also Jamal, the protagonist’s love interest.

The story as it unfolds:

Jamal and his younger brother Salim have no formal education even for namesake and therefore when they rescue themselves from various gangs and anti socials and lead themselves to the bigger city, they have taught themselves lessons in street smartness and surviving against all the odds.

Salim lands up in bad company with the anti social elements and is into extortion and other heinous crimes to make a living while Jamal lands up as a tea boy in a call center. One of the employees teaches him to operate the desktop and he eventually ends up making a call to the Indian version of who wants to be a millionaire.

As luck would have it, Jamal gets chosen for the final round of the contest and after meeting all odds ends up finally on the hot seat.

The questions and the answers:

The format of the show is that the contestant has four options and with every right answer he keeps accumulating money. Jamal, who has no formal education is by now on the penultimate question and is only one step away from the twenty lacs of Indian rupees that he is all set to earn.

At this point, the organizers of the show suddenly start doubting if Jamal has come up to this level by cheating. So, they call the police and hand him over to them. their logic is that while there are other smarter and better educated people than him in the contest, how is it possible that someone who is not even formally educated can reach this level!

The police interrogation

The police listen to Jamal’s entire life story narrative and they realize that even though Jamal may not be educated formally, his life has definitely shown him the answers and it is a matter of luck that these were the questions that were also put to him on the show.

Finally, the police are convinced that there is no cheating involved and that Jamal is innocent. Now, when the show resumes, the last and the final question is again one of those that has a direct bearing on Jamal’s school life. However, at this point he likes to use his life line called ‘phone a friend’ and dials Latika’s number.

Apparently, Latika does not know the answer but her demeanor on the phone shows that she also carries the flame for Jamal in her heart. That is what Jamal wanted to know and it is now obvious. Nothing more matters to Jamal than Latika and her love. However Jamal goes on to win the twenty lakhs of rupees by answering the last question correctly as well.

Thus, the story of the underdog has a happy ending. Everyone is happy and the point is made that love precedes everything – money, fame and reputation!
