Review: Life of Pi

Life of Pi Was beyond doubt was one of the greatest film i've seen since the dawn of the dinosaurs, this was the movie which was I was expecting very much and it was really well paid-off , this said unfilmable masterpiece is no stranger for Ang Lee, Lee's Life of Pi achieves was near the impossible, It's an tremendous achievement in technical and it is also emotionally promising.

A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor ... a fearsome Bengal tiger.

Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's bestseller is a colorful, sometimes overwhelming meditation about faith, friendship and the will to survive, The 3D works very well and stands alongside "Avatar" when it comes to the future of cinema, Life of Pi is nothing short of astounding, pairing gorgeous cinematography with groundbreaking CGI.

They called it unfilmable, they were wrong. Life of Pi is a magical adventure that takes visual ambition and symbolism to new heights, a film that explores faith, religion, and ultimately , the magnitude of God's power, but as a spiritual journey it fails to really touch me, albeit still emotional powerful and really engaging., and now there's no the word 'unfilmable' in Mr. Lee's dictionary.

This films really do stay true it's source and it was never short of anything, The book's intriguing story is done justice with a delectable array of factual acuity seen in monstronomical proportions, It is a film that wields a power which can be many things to different people, Ang Lee's latest offering is certainly an entertaining mix of art-house 'high concept' storytelling with cutting edge technical wizardry.

The movie looks great, it's imaginative and contemplative, but by the end, Life of Pi hadn't convinced me about the existence of God, as it promised to do, but then There is still lot to admire here like Suraj Sharma's fantastic lead performance as a teenage Pi Patel, he really is very effective and very reliable but then Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi' is colorful, sometimes overwhelming meditation about faith, friendship and the will to survive.

4.5 out of 5 stars
