A review in SMS – Life of Pi

THE PROBLEM with a much-hyped-about movie is that the situation sets the stage for disappointment.

I won’t say I was terribly disappointed.  It was just that I realized that Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” is NOT for the particularly impatient.  I happen to be impatient.

Named after a French swimming pool, Piscine Molitor “Pi” Patel tells a writer his “story that will make anybody believe in God”.  This is at the core of the film, which for its amazing visuals and effects, is a stunning masterpiece of a spiritual journey disguised in magical realism.  It’s your “buddy” movie – but between a young Indian boy (Suraj Sharma in a stunning debut performance) and a Bengal tiger (3D effects at its best).

Several quotes stuck with me long after the credits rolled.  Here are two I loved so much.

“When someone you care so much about leaves your life unceremoniously, it breaks your heart.  Life is about letting go.  But you could at least say goodbye.”

“There are many things I remember about our last day.  But I don’t remember saying goodbye.”
