Slumdog Millionaire

Just watched “Slumdog Millionaire” last night. I have watched numerous Indian movies before and therefore was pleasantly surprised with this title. The story is simple and engaging (And almostdevoid of family tie – related subplots, a rarity in Indian cinematography.) The cinematography and camera work are simply stellar. The whole film seems to be shot through a yellow filter which makes the picture feel “warm” and “sunny”. In addition, the soundtrack fits the movie quite well in my oppinion.

The story focuses on the life of 2 orphan kids from the “slums” (huge waste dump) area of India, their troubles and life choices, and of course, love. The movie is very sad, but, in the end does have a happy ending, which was unnesessary for this film in my opinion. Overall, I would say that “Slumdog” is the best movie I have seen in thelast couple of months.
