Movie Review of: Slumdog Millionaire
Novel: Vikas Swarup
Screenplay: Simon Beaufoy
This movie is definitely worth the watch.
Dev Patel (Jamal) and Anil Kapoor (Prem Kumar) kept me on the edge of my seat as this fast paced story spun its tale of crime, violence, romance, courage, and hope in the slums of Mumbai. This movie felt so real with the visual effects of trash heaps, raw sewage, and slum conditions that these orphans had to live in. It touched my heart and this movie was an unexpected surprise.
The soundtrack for this movie was equally brilliant with songs by various artists; A.R.Rahman, M.I.A., and Sonu Nigam.
I would recommend this movie to an adult audience.
