5 second plot: Jamal, a young Indian boy from the slums is about to win big bucks on the TV Show 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?'. They arrest him under suspicion of fraud. He explains to the detective why he knows all the answers. This explanation is the story of his tough life trying to survive. With one upside: his life long love for the beautiful Latika.
5 second review: It's a sad but beautiful story. Told in a very interesting way. As if the director was afraid we would fall asleep. The Indian-American mash-up feels strange from time to time, but overall there is little or nothing to complain about. Two thumbs up.
