This story was told with all the guts and hardship one could muster. I loved the graphics and technical aspects of this movie. I was truly moved and somewhat frightened for the character, Pi.
Based on one man’s powerful imagination, a tragedy emerged that was pushed theatricality to the limits so that we could be a part of a profound story of all stories. Young Pi Pastel, played by Suraj Sharma and Adult Pi Pastel, played by Irrfan Khan achieved the ultimate triumph when he befriended a tiger while cast away with little to no food on a life raft in the middle of nowhere. I found Life of Pi exciting, entertaining, well acted and well directed. This movie was a relief and an escape from some of the not so good stories I’ve seen lately. Oscar worthy, I highly recommend Life of Pi.
