* HypeAversion[=/=]HypeBacklash: It won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. And that is all we shall say on the matter.
* MemeticMutation: See BecauseDestinySaysSo and SayMyName.
** Also, Anil Kapoor's pronounciation of the word, "Millionaire."

* MoralEventHorizon: Where to start? Maman and his gang blinding little boys to become beggars and prostituting underage girls is the most obvious one. He is like "an even darker" version of Fagin from Oliver Twist.

** Prem Kumar, the game show host crossed it when he tried to cheat and even lied about Jamal and had him tortured for supposedly "cheating". On that matter the police themselves qualify for torturing someone on hours without proof and even if they were right it was DisproportionateRetribution.
** Javed Khan as a crime boss was obviously beyond it but onscreen examples are the abuse and scarring of Latika.
** For that matter Salim became his willing henchman and helped him prostitute Latika and betrayed his own brother.
** Finally what started it all was the cold-blooded murder of their mother and other random civilians by extremists.

** If it makes you feel any better, the actor was actually jumping in a substance made of peanut butter and chocolate (basically a liquid Reece's cup).

* TearJerker: The ending. But in a ''good'' way.

** It also could be seen as a reference to the earlier scene when they are kids. Before Jamal is about to sing for Maman, he asks Latika to dance with him and performs a silly dance for her. Some of the dance moves he does are repeated during the Jai Ho dance and the kid actors reappear during the dance, highlighting how the two are finally together.

* UnfortunateImplications: Management college dean Arindam Chaudhari (a very harsh critic of the film) feels this movie projects a negative image of India, and cites an example of a French national refusing to travel to India ("after Slumdog? no way!") to prove his point.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: A.R.Rahman, India's leading composer, explores a great variety of music in the film, both traditional and modern, sometimes [[XMeetsY even a mixture]]. The result? One hell of a soundtrack.



* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: "I live at [[ArtisticLicenseGeography Loch Big Ben]], right next to [[SeanConnery Sean Connery's]] flat."
** The Taj Mahal scene.
** Jamal pretending to be a tour guide.



* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler: The kidnapped children being blinded in order to make them better beggars.]]
