Narrative themes

Narrative/ Themes

  • Through the story of the young Jamal, Malik and Letika this shows the horrors and realistic view of the slums in mumbai touching on the corruption and the poor state of living. The story becomes the narrative, from which the 'present jamel' is able to answer questions from who wants to be a millionaire

Looking at themes in this film, this film is a love story, but underlying messages of the culture of India, and the slums of Mumbai are revealed.


Characters

Characters

  • Jamel – The youngest brother, who falls in love with Letika. Seen as the heroic good guy this is represented through his actions that he never stops looking for letika.

Sadim – The oldest brother who turns to corruption, there is a very strong brotherly love between these two charters due to living with each other from a early age who have always looked out for each other. Represented as the good guy turn't bad, through corruption and deceit

Letika – The heroine of the film, seen as the most beautiful woman in the world of which Jamel would cross for. Through using a very beautiful woman as this role makes the audience praise more sympathy for. A typical heroine stereotype. Is always seen in visuals as in a yellow dress.


Textual analysis

Textual Analysis

  • Editing – As the characters grow up during the film, clever editing has been used to effective show. The first change over was through the boys rolling off a training, from this fast movement we can’t tell the exact difference in the age groups. Therefore becomes a effective change over of characters. Again when a door shuts on the two teenagers Likika and Salim. This shows again another change over of characters, to show characters as they grow.

  • Music – The theme tune of ‘who wants to be a millionaire is used within the film, due to it is recognizable. Therefore the audience will recognize the background and music with the famous TV show.

  • Camera – Long shots and background shots are used within the film, to show the culture of Mumbai and show the great vastness of the slums.
