But when the show breaks for the night, suddenly he is arrested on suspicion of cheating. After all, how could an uneducated boy possibly know so much? Determined to get to the bottom of Jamal's story, a jaded police inspector (Irfan Khan) spends the night probing his incredible past, from his riveting tales of the slums where he and his brother Salim survived by their wits to his hairraising encounters with local gangs to his heartbreak over Latika, the girl he loved and lost.
