    Ashdoc's movie review---The life of Pi

    Its jungle book all over again.....but with a story more like that of Robinson Crusoe.....

    Its a world of nature that the director creates....

    A world of the rolling sea and the vast ocean.....

    Of water all around as far as the eye can see.....

    Of thunderstorms and lightening and rain that soaks the body till it becomes bonechilled......

    Of schools of flying fish that move like a wave hitting you like hail in a hailstorm.....

    Of dolphins and giant whales that splash around with all their force resulting in mighty ripples.....

    Of fluorescent fish whose light looks like a magician's dream silhouetted against the dark sky......

    Of the sky gleaming with the billions and billions of stars at night.....

    Of a remote island with unknown dangers the like of which you have never seen before.....

    Of raccoon like creatures moving over your body in the thousands on the island.....

    Of mighty carnivorous animals and predators and prey....

    And above all a mighty tiger.....

    Its the world of Pi....

    And who's Pi ?? He's a person with an incredible story about being marooned alongside a lifeboat on the high seas along with a royal bengal tiger for company.....

    An astounding tale of survival against all odds.....

    And you do get amazed and enchanted by the special 3D effects that go a long way in making the movie pleasurable.....

    Its the second half that holds the movie together and silences the sniggerring that the audience was doing at the end of the first half.....

    For in the second half Pi learns to tame the tiger , crush his own fears , raise his hopes where there seem to be none and try to reach the realms of land and shore and civilization.....

    And while doing so he looks more and more like a modern day mowgli from jungle book....

    But does he succeed in his quest ??

    Go and watch the movie for that.....

    It wont be a bad outing....

    Verdict---decent enough .

    Saw the movie this afternoon with my daughter. We both enjoyed it.
