A young lad, Jamal, from the slums of Mumbai gets to play as a contestant on the Indian version of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' and, much to the increasing horror of the organisers, looks likely to win the grand prize, there's only one answer: arrest him and find out how he's cheating. It is while under interrogation that we discover how all the trials and tribulations of the young man's life have contributed to his knowledge and the real reason why he entered the game show. 'Slumdog Millionaire' is populist cinema at its best and the scenes of Jamal and his friends as young children roaming the immense underbelly of the city are glorious.
