A double bill of films set in India. Comedy-drama 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' (2011) follows the experiences of a group of elderly Brits who arrive to take up residence in a newly-opened retirement home in Bangalore, India.
Despite its glossy publicity campaign, the Marigold turns out to be rather different from the refurbished luxury hotel advertised in the brochures.
However, it soon begins to reveal some unexpected charms of its own.
Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Tom Wilkinson and Maggie Smith star. 'Slumdog Millionaire' (2008), the rags-to-possible riches tale, was the winner of eight Oscars at the 2009 Academy Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.
Jamal Malik (Patel) is an 18-year-old street kid from the slums of Mumbai.
So what is he doing appearing on the Indian version of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'?
How can a young man from his background of poverty have acquired the knowledge to be only one correct answer away from winning 20 million rupees?
With only one more question to be asked, however, the dream turns to nightmare.
As the hooter sounds to signal the end of the show, Jamal is arrested and accused of cheating.
No one can believe that he could really know all of the answers he has given.
As Jamal tells the story of his life to the police, the reasons for his success begin to appear.
Will Jamal be freed to hear the final question and, if so, will he know the answer?
