Right after that funeral service, my dad and decided to catch a movie.
Our first moving outing
Honestly, I can’t recall when was the last time I watched a movie with my dad.
I believe it was our first which made our movie outing a memorable experience for both of us.
Apart from that, it was also made memorable because of the movie. We watched Slumdog Millionaire.
I hardly ever write reviews on the movies I watched. But because this movie was really good, I will share briefly on it.
Using a unique story structure and scenes weaved around a Mumbai teen, Jamal who finds answers towards his quest in winning “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” from various encounters growing up in the slums.
What I truly appreciated about this movie was the honest presentation of the poverish state of the Mumbai slums. The movie gets under the skin of the city on every imaginable level.
Personally, it showed how low man could stoop in order to climb out of poverty in a dog-eat-dog world. Instead of rejoicing that Jamal was finally reuniting with his childhood love, I was left burdensome on our fallen state.
I strongly recommend this dazzling movie in getting a good glimpse of our real world under the bondage of sin and poverty.
