What it is - Its a Much-awaited Hollywood film with Indian actors. Life Of Pi is a Film that talks about God's existence and a Friendship and Survival tale about a Human and an Animal.
Story - Young Pi (Suraj Sharma) and his family are migrating to Canada along with his father's (Adil Hussain) little zoo. They are traveling by a Ship and a Storm hits.The 17-year-old Pi is left with Richard Parker, a Royal Bengal Tiger, as his sole companion in a life saving 26-foot life raft . How Pi and Richard Parker survives is the rest of the film which is narrated by Elder Pi (Irrfan Khan).
Star Performances - Tabu doesn't have much scope in the film but she makes an impression. Suraj Sharma's performance is good but not so extra-Ordinary to rave about.
Final Verdict - The start of the film gives you a Documentary-Kinda feel. There are some well executed scenes with a brilliant camera work and amazing graphics. But the length of the film is stretched without any reasons. Different style direction, good visual effects, amazing story telling with excellent sequences are the plus points of the film.
Watch it or Not : If you wanna feel some different experience of cinema because it’s more than just a tale about a boy and a tiger. And if you are not Hollywood freak or don't believe in fantasy, you can give it a miss.
