Based on Vikas Swarup's best selling novel, “Q&A”, and adapted for the screen by “Full Monty” scriptwriter Simon Beaufoy, “Slumdog Millionaire” is a vibrant, modern love story set and shot in India. Jamal Malik, an 18-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's Who Wants to be a Millionaire. But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating: how could a 'slumdog' know so much?
