Slumdog Millionaire: a triumph

Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle’s rags-to-riches tale of a boy from the Mumbai slums, continues to win a host of nominations, including best picture, best adapted screenplay and best director for Danny Boyle...and eventually won a total of 8/9 Oscar Nominations.
What's with this movie? Take a look:

Watchin' that movie made me think that it pays to be strong.
India is a lot like Philippines: the squatters, the kids on the street begging for coins for the syndicate, the violent policemen, the power of the rich, and most of all POVERTY.
I salute Jamal Malik for being strong. He lived the rest of his life without his parents, just being with his brother. how could he survive the kind of life that he has? If i were him i dont think i could even live that long. An orphan who was given a chance to play that prestigious game show: Who Wants to be a Millionaire and ended up winning it. If it is just destiny, it is truly written.
Dev Patel, 18, is not just a good actor, he can dance too! Well as what i know, he's a Taekwondo blackbelter and was a bronze medalist
at the 2004 AIMAA World Championships in Dublin, Ireland.
This is probably the only movie that kept me hanging at the edge of my seat! I swear.
