Be Motivated:Dream Big

I went to see Slumdog Millionaire 2 weeks ago and came away feeling both inspired and empowered. During the movie I experienced a variety of emotions, I loved, laughed and cried and even covered my eyes at some of the violence. But I loved it and yes it is a feelgood movie and one I would see again.

Slumdog Millionaire is a story of survival, of destiny and of dreaming big and is based on Vikas Swarup’s novel Q & A.

Jamal Malik, who from a very young age, never let go of his dreams. His vision was crystal clear  and empowered him despite so many setbacks. Salim’s love for Latika never waivers and this allows him to dream big and win, both his love and the game.

Woody Collins from Ending extreme poverty says:

“Slumdog Millionaire” should be required viewing by all poor Congolese children (and other developing countries).  It is a movie about “optimism amid adversity”.  Also, it is a real “ghetto-to-glory” story.

Hollywood has met Bollywood at the Academy Awards, and the makers of “Slumdog Millionaire” hope it’s a sign of future melding between the U.S. dream factory with its counterparts in India and elsewhere in the world.

A tale of hope amid adversity and squalor in Mumbai, “Slumdog Millionaire” came away with eight Oscars, including best picture and director for Danny Boyle.

You can see the slum area of Mumbai where this movie was made.

So have you seen the movie?

Were you inspired?
