Pi’s ship sinks in the Pacific Ocean and the only survivors are Pi, a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a Bengal tiger. The unusual group must fight for survival adrift in the ocean on a tiny boat with supplies running low.A gorgeous adaptation of a much loved book, Lee’s mixture of lush visuals and eye-popping 3D make this a film event you cannot miss!

All agreed that the look of the film was superb particularly in 3d. Although some were not that impressed by the plot most agreed that it flowed and at times was gripping. Everyone thought he acting of Suraj Sharma as Pi Patel was, for a first timer, first class.
