The movie inspired from the novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup travels through the experiences faced by Jamal, a boy brought up by the slum, now a participant in the program ‘Who will be the Millionaire’, his brother Salim and an orphan girl Latika. The director Danny Boyle was has been able to successfully portray the slum of Mumbai effectively. The cinematography, editing, background music score all need equal appreciation. Music was used with optimum variation in situations that required it.
The film has an equal mix of an entertainer, with strong love, feet tapping songs, and scenes of tension.
We Indians can surely hope for the music score to win an Oscar. Being nominated for it is already an achievement. Like all of you, I am also waiting for February 22nd which now keeps me holding on to hopes for the Indian cinema to achieve better horizons.
