Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British-Indian drama film about a Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, who becomes a contestant on the Indian version of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
The movie is a loose adaptation of the novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author Vikas Swarup. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards in 2009 and won eight—the most for any 2008 film—including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
