The Daily Movie Quote: Slumdog Millionaire

Dev Patel and Freida Pinto in Slumdog Millionaire

"A few hours ago, you were giving chai for the phone walahs. And now you're richer than they will ever be. What a player!" - Prem Kapur, Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

Celador Films, Rated R, 120 minutes.

Directed By: Danny Boyle & Loveleen Tandan

Cast:

Dev Patel - Jamal K. Malik

Saurabh Shukla - Seargent Srinivas

Anil Kapoor - Prem Kapur

Frieda Pinto - Latika

Irrfan Kahn - Police Inspector

Domestic Box Office Gross: $141,319,928

Synopsis: A young man, Jamal, is accused of cheating in Indias version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?". While under tortuous questioning we learn, through flashbacks, how he knew the answers and about his undying love for a girl.

Fact: The grand prize $20,000,000 Indian rupees would be $411,600 dollars American.

Trivia: Slumdog Millionaire and Schindler's List are the only two films to win best picture, director and screenplay at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars.

Movie Mistake: When Salim and Jamal are working the Taj Mahal they show a 2006 $10 dollar bill. The year is supposed to be 2002.

My Take: I can't tell you why, but I resisted watching this film FOREVER. I thought it was some musical with a bunch of kids, like India's version of High School Musical. When I actually did see it I was blown away. This movie had so much heart that it's impossible to not feel good after watching it.

      also, both movies showed a child jump into the pit of an outhouse.
