Not top 10, but close.
"Slumdog Millionaire" is a wonderful movie about a boy who survive the slums of India, to appear on a game show. director Danny Boyle did a great job of capturing a love amiss the slums of India. the film provided us with a colorful look at India very few had see. the hero appears on a game show which is pattern after the the American version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" this is India's version of the show, but like the American counterpart, the show too gets pretty intense. The film is told in flashback between the game show and growing up in the slums. Film audiences tend to root for the underdog and "Slumdog Millionaire" is no exception. I love this movie very much. You're going to love it just as much as I.
I thought the movie stunk- it was like watching a third world documentary. I wouldn't waste my money even renting it.
If you didn't get a chance to see this in a theater, it's still going to be as good on the small screen.
Featuring good performances and very likable characters, it doesn't paint a very positive picture of India at times, but the story is good and you end up rooting for the main characters to finally be together at the end.
