Slumdog Millionaire

7 days Proposal and Report writing program conducted by NGO-FONIN in support of DANIDA-HUGOU at Paradise Hotel, Jamal.
Going regular to Hotel and take class it became a used to habit so that I felt damn awkward to come back my business work and tried my best to find out the solution to be refreshed.

In the period of training session my uncle had offered me to have a look to Slumdog Millionaire and in the meantime had talked to Didi Mala (Lecturer of Hattisar Campus) regarding the movie, even she emphasized was substantial, then decided to go Kumari Cinema Hall. It was my first time as a viewer of this Hall with a big excitement. I had heard so many esteem of this film by television, paper moreover the film was awarded 8 Oscar. I definitely had more expectation from this movie so that did not see any reluctant to pay 200 Rupees. In this excitement I was accompanied with my brother Nabin Lohorung(University Student).

The story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" “KAUN BANEKA KAROD PATI” in Hindi Version. 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. Each chapter of Jamal's increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show's seemingly impossible quizzes. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out. At the heart of its story telling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

Eighteen year old Jamal Malik is having an amazing answering streak on the Indian version of the television game show, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire". He's only one correct question away from the big prize. However, some, including those associated with the game show, question how someone like Jamal, a self confessed non-genius who grew up in the slums of Mumbai, can be doing so well on the show when others who are brighter, more educated and wealthier than him have failed. Is Jamal cheating? Is it purely luck that they have asked him the questions to which he knows the answers? Seeing Jamal's life journey to this point ultimately answers these questions. His life journey includes being orphaned at an early age; growing up with an older brother, Salim, who was both his guardian/protector and antagonist; and having a relationship since childhood with another orphaned child, a girl named Latika. His motivation for being on the show also may provide some answers to his success. Perhaps it was all just meant to be.

In Mumbai, the eighteen year-old orphan from the slums Jamal Malik is tortured by the policemen in a precinct accused of cheating a game show. Jamal, who has no education and works in a call center serving tea, is close to wining twenty million rupees in the show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" hosted by Prem Kumar, giving precise answers to the questions and raising suspicion of fraud. The police inspector shows the videotape and after each question, Jamal tells parts of his childhood with his brother Salim, his crush for Latika and their fight to survive on the streets to justify each correct answer, guided by his common sense and past experience, and prove his innocence.
