After making waves overseas, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire is all set to release in India in January. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and newcomers Dev Patel and Freida Pinto.


For its Indian release, Slumdog Millionaire has been dubbed in Hindi, and re-titled Slumdog Millionaire: Kaun Banega Karorepati.


The film tells the story of a boy from the Mumbai slums, whose adventures take him from begging on the streets to the popular gameshow Who Wants to be a Millionaire? where he surprises everyone with his knowledge.


The film has won people's choice award at the Toronto film festival and was given a rousing applause at the London Film Festival.


It is a strong contender for the Oscars. A R Rahman recently triumphed at the Los Angeles awards, and bagged an award for best composer. Boyle bagged the best director's award at the ceremony.
