Needs no introduction but..
Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British drama film directed by Danny Boyle, co-directed by Loveleen Tandan and written by Simon Beaufoy. It is an adaptation of the Boeke Prize-winning and Commonwealth Writers' Prize-nominated novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup.(Wikipedia)

Everyone who watched Slumdog Millionaire loved it.So did I. And now I'm so,so proud!.Just wanted to congratulate every one involved with the movie for their immense success.

..And A.R. Rahman,the maestro and Gulzar for making India proud.

I really want to see this movie. It looks absolutely wonderful...! I have a lot of friends from India and I love, love, love Indian music and food, and the Indian culture. I would love to visit there sometime.

My closest co-worker comes from Goa, and she is a fabulous cook. Every once in a while she brings me some bebinca that she has made.
