Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup

Ram Mohammad Thomas has been arrested on suspicion of fraud for answering all twelve questions correctly on TV’s Who Will Win a Billion? Ram has never gone to school. He has never read a newspaper. There is no way a poor orphan from Jimmy’s Bar could know the names of the planets or the plays of Shakespeare… unless he cheated. Rescued from his police cell by a lawyer, Ram reviews television footage of his flawless performance and takes us on an amazing tour of his life growing up in Asia’s biggest slum – from the day he is salvaged from a garbage can, to his job with a faded Bollywood star, to working as an overly imaginative tour guide at the Taj Mahal, to falling in love with Nita, a young prostitute. A brilliantly conceived fable with a modern sensibility. Slumdog Millionaire is a comic and charming novel that paints an enthralling portrait of humanity.

Actually, I have missed out on catching the movie in cinema because at that point in my life, I was busy working seven days a week. Now that I want to watch the movie, I do not know where to find it. Sad sad me… I do not have Netflix as well, I do not want to end up being a couch potato. I have a habit of sticking to the television from the moment I wake up until I go to bed. Talk about discipline, I have no discipline in front of a TV. I can watch any movie of any language as long as there is either Malay or English subtitle.
