Slumdog Millionaire: A Spank On India

Slumdog Millionaire is a super hit movie which won 8 Oscars and another 100 wins and 51 nominations. The movie is about a kid who grew up in a slum in an Indian city called Mumbai. The boy becomes a contestant in the Indian version of “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” and wins a million rupees. Soon he gets arrested by the cops under the suspicion of cheating and during his interrogation, events from his life histories are shown which shows why he knows all the answers. Now the point I want to make is about the Indian poverty and illiteracy shown in the movie. In the movie, they have tried to define India by its poverty, illiteracy, slum, and dog-like-people.
