Slumdog Millionaire

India and the Audience

Danny Boyle with students after Film Educations premier screening of Slumdog Millionaire.

Simon Beaufoy (Writer) suggests that British audiences haven’t seen India like this before on screen. Do you think this is true? If you have spent time in India, or have friends and family there, is the picture of India painted in Slumdog Millionaire a more accurate one than other representations? You could think about other films such as Ghandi, Monsoon Wedding, or other representations of India or the sub continent that you’ve seen or heard be it on TV, music, novels or advertising to support your responses.
