The whole concept must have been copied ..from a civil engineer who could not get a Java Engineer position in SUN.
They made millions ......... do you still want Rs.100 from me to add to their account seeing this *** movie !!!
I can't believe people take movies so seriously! Its a commercial project, a film produced with the intention of making money. It was particularly enjoyable, reasonably shocking and thought provoking and also rather timely since the world has a lot of feelings towards Mumbai and its people after what they went thru recently (terrorists attacks). Do not expect it to change the fortunes of the slum people over night, or don't expect it to ruin everything for rest of India either.
One of the good movie to watch. Mumbai is a place where where whole shooting took place and few parts of the city are exactly same as shows in the movie. There is a biggest slum area in Asia called DHARAVI. Life of the people in Dharavi is same what is shown there, except few disgusting scene which I don't like. Remember Jamal and that little girl (I forgot her name) are now starts in India. Both of them got a Flat in posh area in Mumbai and they are looking for more movies.
