Slumdog Millionaire heads to the homefront

Friday, January 23, 2009

The film Slumdog Millionaire, which has just been nominated for ten Oscars, including Best Film and Best Director, opens today in cinemas across India. Set in the city of Mumbai, it follows the fortunes of a young man from the slums who has a chance to hit the jackpot on the Indian version of the television quiz show, Who Wants to be a Millionaire. So how will the film fare compared to the mega-Bollywood hits that have come out of the same city? We're joined now by Malini Agarwal a presenter for Radio 1 who is in Mumbai right now.


Recently we spoke to Vikas Swarup, the author of the book on which the film is based.

Don't forget to buy the incredible soundtrack to the film. Watch and listen below.
