A Mumbai teen reflects on his upbringing in the slums when he is accused of cheating on the Indian Version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"
Approximately 20% of the movie's dialog is in Hindi (with English subtitles).
Baali, keep up! The chaiwalah knows more than you.
Indian culture has absorbed many western terms, and seeing as "Who wants to be a Millionaire" is a western show, with a copyrighted and world famous title, they'd either have to break from the other versions to maintain cultural accuracy, or maintain notoriety and keep the title. Plus if you turn on the subtitles on the DVD you can read that the host mentions "crore" several times at the end, which would make sense in their predominantly bilingual culture.
Several of the cast perform a traditional Bollywood song and dance number set in a train station over the end credits.
