the most recent movie i’ve seen



Guess what? It’s Slumdog Millionaire.
After having won 8 awards from its ten nominations for Oscar’s, who else wouldn’t get so curious about the film? I, for instance, got interested about the movie, how the story goes, and how good the actors and actresses were.


Me and my boardmates watched the film last night. It was amazing. The leading actor portrays his character well, and so did the kids who played the young counterpart of the major characters. The story was also realistic in a sense that it captures the real living of the people in slums.


What I really love about this film is the great friendship, and later on the true love of Jamal for Latika. Since they were young, Jamal was always there for her and even when they were apart, he never stopped thinking about rescuing her from the hands of the cruel people who tries to make money out of her. Later on, Latika and Jamal were finally together. Jamal became a millionaire, after having won from the game show Who wants to be a Millionaire.


The saddest part was when Jamal’s brother, Salim, ended his life just to free Latika–for his brother. Indeed, he was a good brother who thought of his younger brother’s happiness. Even though he was a bad guy at some scenes, there was always a part of him that remains good, after all. Everybody who did wrong-doings has always a good reason for it.
