Slumdog Millionaire

In Slumdog Millionaire, Dev Patel from the television series Skins plays the Call Centre Chai Wallah (Tea server) who appears on Indian television in Who Wants To Be a Millionaire and causes a sensation with his run of correct answers. The police interrogate him believing that he must have cheated and in a series of flashbacks we learn about his tough upbringing in the slums of Mumbai.

This is a terrific movie. The sights and sounds of India are presented so vividly that I felt I could smell the country as well.

The film has a terrific soundtrack and as a bonus concludes with a taste of Bollywood over the closing credits.
