"The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai...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 street kid know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika, the girl he loved and lost. Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show's questions." --Key Sunday Cinema ClubGo see this movie and don't leave before the end credits roll or you'll miss a wonderfully exhilirating dance sequence.
