Life Of Pi film review

Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi has to be the most mesmerising film of the year. Hailed as the next Avatar, it doesn’t disappoint; the film is based on Yann Martel’s Booker Prize winning book. The main character Pi played by Suraj Sharma has his world turned upside down when he is shipwrecked on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Fighting to survive at sea for 227 days against jellyfish, sharks, lack of food, water, exposure to the elements and his friend/foe Richard Parker.

Lee beautifully compiles 3D computer animation for this film; the visual magic you see really does make you appreciate the story even more. What makes it even more inspiring is the unexpected twist, which is enough to break the strongest person; it questions everything you’ve seen for the duration, which never normally happens for me during a film. The story doesn’t necessarily make you believe in God but it enforces the idea of human strength and belief in yourself.

It is a truly magnificent cinematic experience, definitely on your must see list in 3D!
