Slumdog Millionaire has been receiving rave reviews and coveted awards ever since its premiere. Directed by Danny Boyle of Trainspotting fame, Slumdog Milliomaire is a rags-to-riches story, dwelling for the greater part on the rags period of the protagonist's life.

Orphaned by religious wars on the streets of Mumbai, a young kid wanders around aimlessly in search of food and shelter. A series of lucky coincidences keep him alive; by the time he reaches his teens, he is doing a bunch of odd jobs to for his livelihood. The troubles this child experiences are quite moving and hard hitting, and his escape each time comes as a relief. As a child, he manages to flee (a) from a bad guy who blinds orphans and forces them into begging, (b) from a locked room where he is covered with excrement and (c) from a whole lot of vile situations. Each situation leaves you gasping and praying that children should not have to go through such torture and tribulations in real life.
