I love India. I have always wanted to travel to this beautiful, exotic country, with its share of spirituality, poverty and natural wonders....
There is a mystery there that intrigues me. When I heard that Slumdog Millionaire was playing in San Diego, I had to go see it. I was not disappointed. This 2 hour film takes you on a journey through India, through the eyes of a young man who is a contestant on India's version of Who Want's to be a Millionaire? I won't say anything else about the plot.
I will say that in this film I saw beautiful faces, colorful land, joy and suffering. I saw one of the true wonders of the world, the Taj Majal, up close and personal. It was a peek into a world so far away and unlike the one that I know, yet I know that someday I will get there.
In the meantime, please go see this film.
