  • So, what does this rich, Greek warrior have in common with an 18 year-old boy from the slums?
    While comparing Odysseus and Jamal, there were a few connections that I noticed:
    Both Odysseus and Jamal had to travel abroad before returning to their true loves.
    Both had to use their wits to solve problems.

  • Call to Adventure
    When Jamal calls to be on the show “Who
    Wants to Be a Millionaire?”. He gets accepted
    and prepares to go on the show.
  • Call to adventure:
    Odysseus was still stranded on the Island of
    Calypso when Calypso received word that Zeus
    had declared war on him. He was to be released
    from the island.
  • Helper/Amulet
    His main helper is his brother Salim, although
    Salim betrays him several times. His other
    helpers are the people in the game show
    audience. He has several people who pretend to
    help him but really betray him.
  • Helpers/Amulet
    Athena
    Sailors
    Hermes
    Calypso (maybe?)
  • Crossing the Threshold
    Jamal did not know the answer to the final
    question. During the break, the game show host
    fed Jamal a wrong answer. Jamal did not fall for
    his trick.
  • Crossing the Threshold
    Odysseus leaves the Island of Calypso and
    begins his journey home.
  • Tests
    Answering the questions on the game show
    Surviving without a mother or father
    Finding a way to make money
    Finding a way to reach Latika
  • Tests
    Fighting the Cyclops
    Surviving the sirens
    Surviving the wrath of Poseidon
    Winning the competition for Penelope
    Odysseus was given a bag of wind that should have delivered him home. His sailors opened the bag and it sent them to the wrong place.
  • Climax
    When Latika sees Jamal on the television and
    goes after him. They finally reunite.
  • Climax/Final Battle
    Odysseus disguised as a beggar and killed all other suitors and their maids. He won the competition for Penelope just in time.
  • Flight
    Jamal answered the question correctly, even
    though the game show host fed him an incorrect
    answer. The host accused Jamal of cheating and
    he was arrested and beaten until he could prove
    himself innocent. After that, he returned to the
    show.
  • Flight
    Odysseus goes to his father’s farm in order
    to prove his identity.
  • Return
    Jamal answered the final question correctly and
    had to return to his “average” life. I guess you
    could not really call it average, though. Now he
    had 20 million rupees.
  • Return
    Family and friends of the suitors and sailors
    came after Odysseus but Athena protected him,
    yet again.
  • Elixir
    Jamal and Latika end up together. She is out of
    danger and he no longer suffers from poverty.
  • Elixir
    Ithaca is finally at peace again.
