Set in India, with "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" as part of the plot, the film takes us on a tour de force back to Jamal's childhood and forward in time. This film tells the story of his life in the slums, how he and his brother survived, and it is also a love story for a girl named Latika. The film was the Winner of the People's Choice Award at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival. It does not disappoint! I give it 5 stars!
