In LION, five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train travelling away from his home and family. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, escaping all sorts of terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven. Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple, and finds love and security as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, he suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification, and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. With just a small store of memories, and the help of a new technology called Google Earth, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.

    This is a great story, well told and acted. All aspects of the movie scintillate, with powerful emotional highs and lows.

    It's been three days since we watched the movie but my brothers are still calling out the names "Saroo" and "Guddu". It sure left a lasting impression.

    The acting in this movie is superb. Kidman and Patel might have done the movie of their lives. The character Patel plays has almost a sixth sense, sensing danger at such a young age and piecing together memories with Google Earth. The story will "haunt" you for days. Watch it. You won't be sorry.
  • Beautiful Story!
