Factual error: Lord Rama is shown holding the bow in the right hand and raising the left hand for blessings. In Hindu practice the blessings are always given by right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Jamal's gang steals parts of the car, Jamal is hit by the driver and gets his left eye swollen. However, in the scene when he washes his eye, his reflection in the water shows that 'his' right eye is swollen, then in the next scene it is his left eye that is swollen.
Trivia: Jamal's childhood hero, the actor Amitabh Baachan, was actually the original host of Kaun Banega Crorepati (Who Wants to be a Millionaire?) in real life.
Police Inspector: Doctors... Lawyers... Never get past 60 thousand rupees. He's won 10 million. What can a slumdog possibly know?
Jamal Malik: The answers.
Middle Salim: Shut up! The man with the Colt 45 says shut up!
Question: Why does Salim sit in a bathtub surrounded by rupee notes of various denominations before shooting at the mob boss and getting shot in return?
Question: What was the point of Jamal explaining the cost of pani puri? Did he really not know the answer to the simple question?
