Screenplay by David Magee

Based on. Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Starring Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Adil Hussain, Rafe Spall, Gérard A similar sentiment was echoed by leading newspaper Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta who also gave it three-and-a-half stars, “What stops it from being completely spectacular is the director’s faltering with the cultural specificities of being Indian. So what you get is a not-so-satisfactory beginning, a gorgeous middle, and a too-sedate ending.”
The Hindustan Times’ Rashid Irani awarded the film a four-star rating, “A tale full of sound, fury and state-of-the-art special effects, Life Of Pi is a one-of-a-kind dazzler. Oscars ahoy!”
Praise for the film’s India locales and especially 16-year-old Delhi-based newcomer Suraj Sharma’s performance was also unanimous with leading newsmagazine India Today’s Vinayak Chakravorty four star review stating: “That Lee’s vision of the story will be splendid becomes obvious in the opening frames, as the camera laps up scenic Pondicherry. Suraj Sharma gets the mix of grit and misery just right for his role. His act gives this film its beautiful emotional core. ”
South India-based The Hindu newspaper’s Sudhish Kamath, wrote, “Young Suraj Sharma couldn’t have asked for a better debut and performs like a veteran. This is a performance that will instantly make people draw comparisons with Tom Hanks in Castaway and Suraj wouldn’t fare any less in the contest. ”
Beyond the critics, Life of Pi has also found favor with some leading Bollywood personalities who tweeted their views on the film. “Life Of Pi – must watch!! Its message will have multiple interpretations and will be open to post viewing analysis. That’s the fun of it,” director Karan Johar posted on his Twitter account.

‘Life of Pi’ – A Visual Masterpiece
there was nothing easy about the making of the Oscar-award winning movie Life of Pi — a film that took a book about philosophy and being lost at sea and turned it into a visually-stunning 3D experience.
not only did the crew build the world’s biggest wave pool in movie history and create an entire storyline around a boy on a boat with a tiger — which was virtually an animation and wasn’t even there ay the time of filming — actor Suraj Sharma (who plays the role of Pi Patel) did not even know the way to swim. The whole film was also shot in 3D, not partially in 2D.
