9780007206476: Slumdog Millionaire

Winner of Seven Bafta Awards inlcuding Best Film, 'Slumdog Millionaire' is based on Vikas Swarup's bestseller 'Q and A', which only took Swarup two months to write!

Read by Kerry Shale, this beautiful award winning audio communicates Vikas' words and narrative to life, allowing the listener to envisage the colour and vibrance of Mumbai and the hard hitting truth of poverty and struggle through the eyes of two young boys and the friends they make along the way. One of the boys comes through it all, knowledgable and determined by answering twelve questions correctly on a gameshow. Stunning an audience of millions, he draws on a store of street wisdom and trivia to provide him with the essential keys, not only to the quiz show, but to life itself.

Adapted for the big screen Swarup's achievement has already been marked by winning four Golden Globes. Slumdog cleaned up, winning seven of the eleven award nominations including Best Film at the BAFTAs in London so the only thing left for Swarup to think about now are the Oscars whereby this enchanting story has been nominated ten times!

Recensione:

Well, for all this, it's got punch and narrative pizzazz: a strong, clear, instantly graspable storyline that doesn't encumber itself with character complexity, and the cinematography by Anthony Dod Mantle is tremendous. It's definitely got that quirky-underdog twinkle and the
silverware glint of awards can't be far away.The Guardian.

Taken from the novel Q&A by Vikus Swarup, this is a big, visually sumptuous and energetic film. It's Dickens meets the Brothers Grimm, but set in India. What Boyle gives us, though, is an India that British film-makers, usually riddled with imperial guilt, rarely show us: the modern, globalised India of the fast buck, media, celebrity,call centres and high-rises. This new India is perfectly summed up when the film's young hero, Jamal, who has just been kicked in the face, says to two American tourists who have witnessed the assault, "You wanted to see the real face of India? Well, here it is!"The Sunday Times.

Slumdog Millionaire is as acerbic as it is clear-eyed about the brutal power dynamics in modern-day Mumbai. But, at the same time, what makes it so warming and what has been inspiring audiences all across the world to cheer at its rousing ending, is its passion for a place that
writer Suketu Mehta has described as a "maximum city".Mumbai has been through hell recently. But Slumdog Millionaire, whose everyman hero is a Muslim, is a wonderful tribute to it and to its people. It is, in fact, a maximum film.The Telegraph.
