    It's not overhyped and overrated. Almost no Hollywood picture compares to this rags to riches story. You can imagine what Hollywood would do if they made this movie, it would drip of cynicism and falsehood. Danny Boyle manages to create a rich story, something that rarely comes out of the cinema nowadays. 8 years 9 months ago

    An almost Dickensian journey from child to young adult in the slums of India. It's also a grand love story, and a film about memory, as each question asked of the protagonist on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? sends us into a flashback that will show how he knows the answer (or doesn't). A huge editing effort, and it works completely. Charming, striking, unique and unforgettable. 3 years 4 months ago

    Great movie. Very nice to see when Oscar winners are not Hollywood movies. 6 years 11 months ago
