    The true story of a life lost and found

    In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage.

    Soon, Saroo is selected to be adapted to the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Interesting, heart wrenching story. Being a true story makes it even more real. Loved it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heart wrenching story I was a little disappointed in the film and I put that down to having read the book and seen the original documentary. After having so many friends tell me how good the film was I felt I just had to see it. There are always things left out of a film because you simply can't fit everything in, but the film then looses something in the final cut. It was a good story but not a brilliant film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Cover The movie was fantastic & I cannot understand why it did not win the Oscars & other awards as it was so much better than the movie that did win. The acting & story was wonderful & I am looking forward to watching it again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Film. Eye opening to how orphan or lost children are/were treated in India. The actors are very believable in their roles. Very emotional in places, but an enjoyable film.
