Lion-Movie Based on A True Story

Why they named the movie Lion. Because Saroo was actually Sheru. Thats local word which means lion in English. He was five years who when he lost his family and his town even his state. He didn't know his name correctly so whenever someone asked his name he said "Saroo" but he meant Sheru. Thats so interesting and emotional what happened to little kid and how he made it to back hime home again. Lion is a true story of a poor orphan kid whose mother worked as labor. One day he went with his elder brother to work and got trapped in an empty train which took him thousand miles away from his hometown. He didn't know where he was. Days or maybe weeks of a hard life in streets of Calcutta, India and then he met a nice guy who took him to the local police and they took him to local authority which dealt with misplaced or homeless kids. There an Australian family adopted him and Saroo got a chance to live in a better environment.

Lion Movie Track

At the end when they play a track that makes you do moves. You want to dance. The movie has all emotions and feelings which can make a drama story more awesome and heart touching. Romance, family, thriller etc genres all in this one movie.


Thanks to Google

No, Google is not involved production of the film or something. But Google earth map helped  a lot Saroo in finding his way back. He went missing in 1987 and then there was no internet, Facebook etc where they could advertise or something like this. But in 2008, Australia has better internet facility and Google has introduced earth map software which made that miracle happen and he could met his mother and sister again .Google should use Lion film for its publicity I think.


In first part of the Lion movie you see rural and urban places of India. Scary and dangerous things happen to tiny boy but he survives. Thrilling and nail biting scenes you see throughout the film. When I finished the movie first thing I did, I went to their official website which they made for a good cause. They help missing kids and try to give them better life and also help them to meet their families again. Everyone liked Sunny Pawar, 5 years old kid who played role of child Saroo. He acted awesomely.


Lovely and awesome landscapes you see. Hobart, Marion Bay, Tasmania and Melbourne. Beautiful locations. Why Saroo wanted to go back? Nothing is like home. Thats why they say home sweet home.Nicole Kidman played role of Australian woman who adopted Saroo.

A Long Way Home

Saroo written the book. Must be best seller I believe. By the way don't you guys think that Saroo looks like Bollywood star Irfan Khan especially their eyes seem almost same. I don't know that how long the book is but I want movie duration longer. You can guess that how much I loved Lion movie. Usually bio genre films don't attract me much. Rarely I like a biographical movie but that one is mind blowing.
