Jamal is a teenager living in the slums of Mumbai - a charismatic underdog, but not someone you'd think stood a chance of winning India's version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. But when, against everyone's expectations, and much to the TV show host's annoyance, he answers all the quiz questions correctly, accusations of cheating land him in police custody. It's only by recounting his extraordinary life story that Jamal can escape punishment and get back to his true quest: finding his long-lost childhood sweetheart, who is in grave danger. Slumdog Millionaire combines the plot twists of a Charles Dickens novel and the vibrancy of a Bollywood musical into a fantastically fun adventure.
Contains strong language and violence.
