    hi i am from india.

    this film is made in india.

    we call the the areas slum which are dirty.

    so slum dog means the dog brought up is in slum.it roams in the slum areas.where there no good food.no place to sleep.it lives life with out any reason.

    so according to movie ...the hero came from a slum area.here you can understand one more thing slum dog dont cares for any type of environment. it wont have any permanent place . it roams around.

    so in movie you can watch a man whose bought up in slum (like a dog in slum area).how his life gave the answers to became a millioneer.

    'Slumdog' is refered to straydogs. Which mean a stray has no master, no dwelling place & lives an absolute deprived life in every aspect.

    In Hindi it translates as 'gali ka kutta', meaning roadside dog.
