Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire is a movie about a love story that has the audience rooting for the main characters to reunite and for the Jamal to win the money to change his life. While that is the surface view of the movie, Slumdog Millionaire holds a much deeper meaning. The examination of violence throughout the movie is only one of the many different themes that are depicted in the movie but an important one. Dharavi, the setting, gave us a better understanding of what slums are like and the kinds of violence that surrounds the people of that community every day. The examination of Jamal’s character and his experiences of violence showed that terror and punishment are ways that are used to treat people as the “Other”. The consequences of the sexist relationships between Latika and other male characters result in different types of violences. On a more meaningful level Slumdog Millionaire informs us that there are many different forms of violence that surround and shape our everyday lives as seen in Jamal’s character.
