Slumdog Millionaire (Danny Boyle, 2008)

WHAT IT IS: A disenfranchised wants to prove he did not cheat after participating in India's 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?'

HOW IT IS: Boyle signs here his most entertaining and accessible film. The digital format and the fast-cutting add to the film's vistas of Indian ghettos and beautiful landscapes. The actors visibly lack experience but the power of Slumdog's story greatly compensates for its few faults. It is one of its year's best spent couple of hours.

IF YOU LIKED: Lagaan, Bollywood films, Millions.
