Accused of cheating and desperate to prove his innocence, an eighteen-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai reflects back on his tumultuous life while competing to win 20 million rupees on India’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in Danny Boyle’s inspirational drama. Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) may not have a penny to his name, but that could all change in a matter of hours. He’s one question away from taking the top prize on India’s most popular television game show, but as with everything else in Jamal’s life, it isn’t going to be easy. Arrested by police under suspicion of cheating, Jamal is interrogated by the authorities. The police simply can’t believe that a common “slumdog” could possibly possess the knowledge to get this far in the game, and in order to convince them of how he gained such knowledge, Jamal begins reflecting back on his childhood.
