Slumdog Millionaire

Clip 3 - Latika caught at the station


  1. Visually, does this scene recall any other love stories you know of?
  2. How is Latika's vulnerability suggested here? To what extent would you agree that she is presented as a passive victim - in this scene, and elsewhere in the film?
  3. How would you describe the narrative roles of the different characters or groups we see in this scene?
  4. How does Danny Boyle create both a sense of closeness and also a distance between Latika and Jamal in this sequence?
