The story of Slumdog Millionaire

Monday, January 12, 2009

Last night you may have watched the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The big winner of the night was the unlikely blockbuster film, "Slumdog Millionaire", which won Best Director and Best Motion Picture (Drama), not to mention Best Score and Best Screenplay. And we have to remind you that we totally called it! Joining us now to discuss the accolades is Vikas Swarup. While his day job is pretty impressive as India's Deputy High Commissioner to South Africa, his current claim to fame is writing the novel Q & A, which is the basis for the film.

A spoiler-free clip from the film.
