Slumdog Millionaire is the story of Jamal Malik (Patel),
an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who
is about to experience the biggest day of his life.
With the whole nation watching, he is just one question
away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on
India¹s "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"
But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest
him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid
know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence,
Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he
and his brother grew up, of their adventures together
on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs,
and of Latika (Pinto), the girl he loved and lost.
Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the
answer to one of the game show¹s questions.
The soundtrack is available from Amazon.com,
