Slumdog Millionaire

It seems everyone loved Slumdog Millionaire except me.

It seems everyone loved Slumdog Millionaire except me.

The movie started out well and when the main characters are children, it was a good movie. Seeing Mumbai and the slums there was captivating in a way. However, this was no City of God.

Then everyone grows up and the plot becomes Bollywood-predictable. I lost interest in the movie then, though the friends we were watching it with were engrossed.

Also, Anil Kapoor didn’t do a good job playing the host of Who’ll become a millionaire. May be they should have tried Amitabh Bachan who hosted it on Indian TV.

I rate the movie 6/10.
