Absolutely amazing and I just can't find the right words to describe Sunny Pawar in this film. His portrayal of Young Saroo is heartbreaking but so wonderful. What a brilliant little actor he is

What a beautiful and emotional journey.
I knew I was gonna cry like a little baby at the end.
Thank you Saroo for sharing your story.

This was one of 2016 best movies, i haven't seen Fences (which i don't have much hope) and Manchester by the sea but i think we have a solid winner. A fantastic true story, very inspiring and sad with a magnificent little actor Sunny Pawar. This is a must see, it will have you in tears.

Broke me into a million pieces. Emotionally shattering, both as a film and the true story behind it. Tremendous performance from the young lead but kudos to all involved. I wish the film had spent a little more time with Saroo as a child, letting us see his adjustment into the western lifestyle. However, that is my only quibble with the film. Ultimately the film left me feeling inspired, but also very sad. Without going into spoilers, the statements during the credits reveal more of the backstory, one of which is incredibly upsetting. Still, its a wake up call to all of us - we need to be selfless when it comes to doing more good in the world we live in.

There's many good things to say about this movie. The cinematography was particularly stunning with beautiful and shocking scenes from India. But in the end this is the kind of film and annoys me more than it warms my heart. Maybe I'm a monster but I cannot feel sympathy for a character that has everything for him and ultimately is his own and only enemy. Saroo had loving adoptive family, supportive friends and a girlfriend who insisted on helping him, but instead of letting them help, he alienated everybody.

Didn’t really know what to expect when I sat down in the cinema to watch this movie, but what I had heard from others where: Strong movie, a bit long, very good film, touching story…

So not that much info before the movie started.

So what did I think of it… Lion tells a very strong and heartfelt story that touches the very essence of storytelling thru great cinematics and acting. It has a strong story to tell and it does so in a gripping and visual exciting way, where the 2 hours it lasted quickly passes and when the light comes back, you can’t help but has to wipe away a couple of tears that has gathered in the corners of your eyes.

Normally this is not the kind of movie I enjoy watching, but I must say that I am happy I did. I would have missed a great movie, that I absolutely loved, although It could be 15-20 min shorter.

Splendid cinematography and solid acting (Sunny Pawar steals the show from the more seasoned actors), though I'm not sure the story merits the epic treatment given here. Still, a moving story and I cried on cue at the end, so here is your 8 rating!

The cinema where I watched Lion almost drowned in tears (during some scenes people were crying so hard it was kinda scary), definitely a film to bring a box of tissues to (Ladies, don't wear make-up for Lion, it'd be a waste)

Great debut of Sunny Pawar (should replace Patel on the awards lists) and good Kidman, overally acting is nice but there are some holes in character development and I'm talking mostly about Mantosh, whose character was indeed introduced but nothing more, I really counted on focusing more on guy's background and relations with family, so I'm quite disappointed.

It sometimes drags (searching part) but overall it's a good movie.

One of the best movies I've seen in my entire life! It's completely incredible!

*Truly Exceptional.*

May I start this off by saying that I'm astonished at the extremely unfair negative, even 'mixed' reviews the film has gotten so far... The film is not even remotely close to being average, it's far, far, beyond magnificent.

By now you probably know the synopsis, so I'll add for those who haven't seen the film that it's visually stunning, the acting is superb (special mention to phenomenal newcomer Sunny Pawar, who plays 5 year old Saroo) and the story is so gripping and moving, that there wasn't a dry eye in the house when the film reached it's emotional climax.

I've been thinking about this film since I saw it, there's drama, mystery, romance, a whirlwind of emotions throughout the 2 hours - in the best way possible.

My score 8/10.

Such a powerful movie and story.
It's really emotional from the start to the end.

Wow, what a great story. I've been thinking about it now for a few days after seeing it.

Brilliant film that had me all choked up by the end. You just know the big pay off was coming and it was perfect.

Loved Lion. Wonderfully directed and acted flick. Every player in this film kept you until the next scene and the next. Mr. Patel and Mr. Pawar passed the baton back and forth with such skill to bring about the real Saroo whom the entire story was about. The story is amazing, fantastic and bittersweet. And so genuine. Mr. Wenham and Ms. Kidman really carried a certain sincerity that I did not think would exist, but their roles were so important to who Saroo would eventually become. There are so many rewards in watching this, but one of my favorites is before the credits roll at the end that simply ties it all together. Damn what a great movie!

I would have had a different approach making this movie, in spoiler just in case: I would've rather watched more of the main character growing up, settling into this new environment and becoming part of his new family, and rather see his return to India only in the end credits. Anyways, cinematography and the music was 10/10, and the movie itself is also worth watching, especially as it is based on a true story. Heartbreaking and excellent performance by Sunny Pawar!

Amazing movie, good story, good music. I am a bit disappointed that he spent 5+ years visually looking for his home town the hard way. In retrospect, from an engineer's perspective, you could pull up a list of all the cities/towns/provinces/etc into a large text file and look to see if anything looks similar to what you thought it [your home town] was. Ganesh Talai is pretty close to Ganestalay. TBH I didn't think of this until after I saw that Ganesh Talai had been identified on Google Maps at the end of the movie.

Brilliant from start to finish, a captivating story full of emotion best film I've seen in a while 9/10

One of the most amazing films, I've ever watched, from the sheer talent and brilliance of the cast, especially Sunny Pawar, to the beautiful cinematography and the raw, emotional journey that the audience was taken on.

Great movie! The little boy - Sunny Pawar - deserves an award for his expressive acting in this movie. He does a lot with very little dialogue!

Amazing and sad to know that this happens as i write this.

Lion is one of the Best Picture nominees that really stayed under the radar but this is a very well executed film. Dev Patel does not appear until almost halfway through the movie but when he arrives he takes hold of the movie and never lets go. Its emotional and the ending gives you everything that you hope for.

Simply amazed at how well the movie unfolds and how good an actor little Sunny Pawar is. The movie had lots of emotions and Sunny Pawar as well as Dev Patel made sure you feel each one of them with their exceptional acting. I also liked the way how at the end of the movie you come to know why the movie gets its title Lion.

This story is so beautiful and so well written. And Sunny Pawar was simply perfect.
"GUDDU!"

This movie is nominated for 6 Oscars: Best Picture; Best Supporting Actor (Dev Patel), Best Supporting Actress (Nicole Kidman), Best Original Score, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Cinematography. It deserves to sweep these categories. I give it a 9 (superb) out of 10. Everything about it was superb - acting, music, the truth of the story, the pathos of the journey, the breath-taking beauty of the filming. It's a don't miss. My favorite for Best picture, so far, with just two left to see: Fences and Moonlight.
