A five-year old Indian boy gets lost in Calcutta, miles from home. Twenty-five years later, he sets out to find his family. Starring Sunny Pawar, Abhishek Bharate, Priyanka Bose, Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Rooney Mara.
I am a little surprised that this film didn’t receive more accolades. It is slow to start, but once it gets going, it will draw you in, heart and soul. Beautifully filmed, India stands out as a unique character in the film, and you can feel the loneliness and despair Saroo must have gone through trying to survive. Pawar is brilliant as the young, lost boy, and Patel is equally compelling as the grown man who is still lost between two worlds as he comes to terms with his past. Although it is an uplifting film, you will definitely need a box of tissues to get through it. Don’t miss out on this one; it is so worth a watch.
