Another film I’m obviously behind the curve on, this is a movie by Scottish director
Danny Boyle which chronicles the life of a young Indian man, Jamal (Dev Patel), ashe struggles to make his way in the harsh world of the Mumbai slums. The framing
device for the story is Jamal’s appearance on the Indian version of “Who Wants toBe a Millionaire?”

The story rifles back and forth between Jamal’s challenging childhood (spent
predominantly with his brother Salim (Madhur Matal) and a girl they befriend,Latika (Frieda Pinto) and his life as a young adult trying to scrape by as a tea serverin a call center. While Jamal is on the show, each question asked leads to some sortof flashback which explains how he knows the answer and tells a story from his
youth. It’s an unusual but very effective way to reveal the relationship between
Jamal and his brother, and to demonstrate some very harsh realities in the lives of the deeply poor in India.What I enjoyed most about the movie was how it told very little but showed almost
everything. We aren’t spoon
-fed the details we need to know about Jamal

wehave to pay attention and figure them out for ourselves, though Boyle gives us allthe information we need. One icky scene

where a young Jamal opts to take aplunge through the hole of an outhouse into a puddle of you-know-what all so thathe can get to see his matinee idol and get an autograph

speaks tomes about his
commitment to the things he loves and desires, just as we learn Salim’s
true naturewhen he sells the autograph for a few dollars to a local projectionist.The story is well-crafted and excellently told, and we are given all the right details
we need to fully appreciate the story and its development. I’ll admit to being
sucked into it not only by the skill with which the film was made, but because of
Jamal’s character trait of utter loyalty to that which he loves, and his devotion to
Latika even after years of separation

perhaps a bit of a stretch but for an oldromantic like me a wonderful subplot (of course, when she grows up into thebreathtakingly beautiful Frieda Pinto, well, that devotion pays off). A silly aside, DevPatel reminded me very strongly of a friend of mine in college (the physicalresemblance was strong enough so that they could have been cousins), a factor of course that none of you have. But frivolous personal connections aside, this is asgood a movie as people ranted about two years ago, and certainly worth taking a
look at; it’s an intelligent and emo
tionally satisfying movie, and how often do yousee that?
