This is my favorite movie of 2008 and one of my favorite all-time movies. The protagonist, Jamal, is a contestant on India’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and he has answered all the questions correctly up until the final question for the big money prize. Officials suspect him of cheating and have detained him and torture him to figure out how he cheated. Jamal and the officials go through how he came to know the answer to each question and this takes the viewers through his life. This is a wonderful film about love, life, fate, and timing and it is beautifully done (I may be a bit biased because I love Indian culture). It is mostly in English and subtitled for the non-English parts. It’s out in the theaters now; consider seeing it! I think you will really enjoy it.
Here is the trailer:
