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?"
The film used a prototype Digital Cinema Camera from Silicon Imaging. When used in Mumbai, there were SI technicians on set constantly to deal with any problems the prototype had, of which there were many.
So are you ready for the final question for 20 million rupees?
Jamal Malik: No, but maybe its written, no?
Prem Kumar: Maybe...
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.
