A Mumbai teen, who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
Murderesses Velma Kelly (a chanteuse and tease who killed her husband and sister after finding them in bed together) and Roxie Hart (who killed her boyfriend when she discovered he wasn't going to make her a star) find themselves on death row together and fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows in 1920s Chicago. Written by
In their final dance, Velma and Roxie are presented by someone who speaks on a microphone next to them. However, when the second part of their act is introduced, you can hear the same voice, but the man who was talking on the microphone has turned around looking at the musicians and the microphone is far away from his mouth.

You know you're really pretty good.
Yeah, that and a dime. What are you doing here?
I heard you been, uh, making the rounds.
Yeah, well, if it was up to you I'd be swinging by now.
Come on, I always knew Billy'd get you off. You should learn how to put things behind you.
Oh, thank you. I'll put that at the top of my list. Right after finding a job and an apartment with a john.

I saw Chicago with my sister yesterday and we were hoping that he movie as going to be fun. We were fulfilled to the fullest. The movie Lavishly well done, energetic and fun to listen to, Chicago is easily on the top 10 best musicals ever. The music in the movie, the rhythm just utterly spellbinding, that's how incredible Chicago is. The movie mostly benefits from it extremely talented cast. Catherine Zeta-Jones shines in Chicago and gives the performance of her lifetime. She well-deserved her Oscar. John C. Rielly, Renee Zellwegger and Queen Latifa deserved their Oscar Nominations.
The cinematography, sound, art directions, and especially the costume design they were all expertly done. I resisting the urge to dance and tap my shoe. What an amazing production it took to create this film. Everyone deserved their Oscar Wins or nominations whomever took part in the production. 1920s Chicago comes alive in breathtaking detail. Everyone whom likes musicals or music should definitely have a listen and watch Chicago.
Rob Marshell truly out did himself in this masterpiece. 10/10
