Watched the movie Life of Pi in PVR on Saturday and enjoyed every bit of it. The special effects and picturization was superb. The movie starts of with a writer having a conversation with Pi Patel (Our own Irrfan Khan). Other familiar faces in the movie are Adil Hussian (English Vinglish) and Tabu who play the parent role of Pi Patel. Pi Patel and his family live in Pondicherry and own a Zoo. Over a period of time they are forced to sell the zoo animals and settle abroad and hence they start they journey on a ship.
Due to harsh weather and storm the ship collapses and the only immediate survivor would be Pi Patel, a Bengal Tiger, a Zebra, a Gorilla and a Hyena. The core strength of the movie lies on how Pi Patel survives the whole journey until he finds land again.
A must watch movie and surly a visual treat specially for kids. Only after booking the tickets and reaching PVR that we realized the movie is also running in the IMAX format.
