Life Of Pi to release in India on 21 NovemberDirector Ang Lee’s Life Of Pi has been set for a 21 November (2012) release in India. What’s more, the film will release here a month ahead than its worldwide opening (scheduled for a December release).
To make matter’s more exciting, the film’s release will be one of the biggest ever for any Hollywood film with more than 1000 screens, of which around 350 will be in 3D. Furthermore, viewers can enjoy in the flick in four languages English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, according to Fox Star Studios, the distributor of the film in India.
Life Of Pi is based on Yann Martel’s Booker prize winning novel with the same name. The film centers around Pi, a youth, who is the only person to survive a sinking freighter. He finds himself on a lifeboat with a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan and a tiger.
It might be recalled that fans of Lee in India had much to rejoice when the filmmaker chose 17 year old Delhite, Suraj Sharma to essay the role of Pi. He has no previous acting experience and was cast following an extensive search after over 3000 young men who were auditioned.
The rest of the cast includes artistes like Tabu, Irrfan Khan and Gerard Depardieu among others.
Lee, whose other honors include an Oscar nomination for his direction of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Sense and Sensibility, has shot Life Of Pi in 3D, utilising groundbreaking techniques to capture the story’s epic scope.
