Slumdog Millionaire - A Must See!

I love movies. That said, up until recently I couldn’t stand movies that took place in other countries. I have nothing against other countries; it’s just that I always had such difficulty understanding what they were saying. This made these movies difficult to follow, and other than the interesting scenery, I had no reason to watch them. Well, one movie changed my entire attitude with all of this. That movie was Slumdog Millionaire.

I had heard it was terrific, but the title kind of turned me off. I figured it would be about some kid who grew up in the ghetto and ended up rich. It almost was, but this movie goes so much deeper. While it’s not a movie I would watch several times, I still loved it. There was something special about it. I guess the word would be ‘distinctive.’ A lot of that had to do with what I was able to learn about India.

I found Slumdog Millionaire on direct tv last Thursday, which was a blessing. If I hadn’t found it, I would have ended up watching another baseball game. I’m very happy with the way everything worked out that night. While Slumdog Millionaire is suspenseful, it’s also a love story. What makes it a special love story is that it’s about a boy who fell in love with a girl at a very young age and never let go or gave up. He was willing to make any sacrifice and take any chance to end up with her. You sense she feels the same way, but at some points you’re not so sure. This simple aspect adds a little mystery to the movie. The end of the movie is definitely different and enjoyable. You will see why.

Overall, I would highly recommend Slumdog Millionaire. It’s adventurous, suspenseful, educational, and most of all, fun.
