Winner of countless Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards, Slumdog Millionaire is the story of a call centre assistant, who grew up in the slums of Mumbai. Entering himself into TV show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Jamal (Patel) somehow gets to the final question for 20 million rupees, but when the show breaks overnight, the police take him, under suspicion of cheating, and retells his amazing life, and how he came to know the answers to each question.

Thoroughly captivating throughout, Slumdog Millionaire was more than deserving of its success at the Oscars, pushing Trainspotting and 28 Days Later at the peak of director Danny Boyle’s filmmaking.
