From Danny Boyle, director of Trainspotting and 28 Days Later, comes the story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life...

sovenok, where did u see it?

Diplomat Vikas Swarup, whose novel was used as the basic story of the film Slumdog Millionaire, has an answer to all those crying
themselves hoarse about the "negative" portrayal of India: Slums are a reality in India.


Swarup, whose 2003 debut novel Q and A, featured slums mainly towards the end, tells that British-made film doesn't depict them as places of "unmitigable despair".

Slumdog Millionaire, the Golden Globes-winning British-made movie directed by Danny Boyle and set in Mumbai, has sparked a wave of national pride across India.

Audiences across the sub-continent are keenly awaiting the movie, which is released there on January 23.
Despite being a British film directed by Boyle, the force behind Trainspotting, Indians have welcomed Slumdog as one of their own.

The Times of India has declared that the 'Slumdog has its day', while The Hindustan Times cheered 'Indian tale catches global fancy'.

It was awarded four Golden Globes by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, including best picture.
But Indians cheered loudest when composer AR Rahman, described by Time magazine as the Mozart of Madras, won the award for the best musical score.

Indian film maker Madhur Bhandarkar described the recognition the awards represented was "absolutely great".


He said: "It is an excellent film which depicts real poverty and real life in India. Moreover, Rahman winning the award will take India on to a different platform. His music was internationally recognised but now it will be different."

But many are asking whether India is ready for such a "brutal" look at itself.
Some believe more conservative viewers - who ironically include the poor slum-dwellers who form the back-drop to the film - may find Slumdog too modern, and too challenging.
Will Indian audiences react with quite the same enthusiasm as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did, when it awarded Slumdog four Golden Globes, including best picture?

Despite the Times of India's warm welcome, a new headline running on Wednesday morning asked what it called "the BIG question" - "Is India ready to accept Slumdog Millionaire?"
With its Indian release date fast looming, the paper asked: "While the world is raving about it, is Mumbai ready to see its underbelly being exposed in the most brutal way on the big screen, that too by a British director?"
Western audiences might be accustomed to thinking about India in terms of a country divided by extravagant wealth and dismal poverty, but Indians themselves still seem uncomfortable with that reflection.

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, who stars in the film, said: "Slumdog Millionaire has captured the pulse of Mumbai like never before. The film does not only show poverty stricken India but is a tale of hope for millions of those who are happy in spite of being poor. It's an honour for me to be a part of this film."


Its critical success follows closely in the footsteps of The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, which won the Man Booker Prize last October.
Both deal with the seamy underbelly of Indian life and two young men's attempts to escape it.
Both were also created by outsiders. While Adiga was born in Madras he is part of the global elite, having studied at Columbia University in New York and then Oxford, followed by a stint as Time magazine's South Asia correspondent.

There is a parallel with Slumdog - after it swept the Globes, Indian actor and social activist Gerson Da Cunha remarked that it was "extraordinary that it takes a foreigner to make a true, inventive film about Mumbai".

India celebrates 10 'Slumdog Millionaire' Oscar nominations



The movie got the second highest number of Oscar nominations, including best director for Danny Boyle and best picture.



Generating the most buzz in India — three music nominations for Indian composer A.R. Rahman.

A front-page headline in the Times of India trumpeted "RAH RAH RAHMAN" while a parade of Bollywood stars attending the Thursday night premiere in Mumbai rejoiced that the celebrated songwriter was earning international accolades.

"I'm at the top of the world," Rahman told the Times of India. "Everything is a blur."

"Slumdog Millionaire" music director A.R. Rahman says getting three Oscar nominations is more of a "dream come true" for his wife as she has always wanted him to win the coveted international honour.

"What can I say? It's a dream come true not so much for me as my wife. She'd wake up in the middle of the night and say, 'I want you to win an Oscar'. And I'd just smile. Today my wife's dream seems a possibility,"

Slumdog Millionaire goes to the Oscars with 10 nominations and if it takes as many as seven statuettes it will equal the performance of Shakespeare in Love, the last British film to sweep the Academy Awards in 1999.
But Slumdog Millionaire will need to win all 10 nominations to beat The English Patient, which won nine Academy Awards in 1997.
Slumdog Millionaire has already been a hit at the box office, taking more than £7 million in its first fortnight and £21 million so far.

Azharuddin Ismail, who acted as the character of young Salim and Rubina Ali who acted as young Latika in 'Slumdog Millionaire,' smile after completing their US visa interview ahead of the Oscars
