  1. LIFE OF PI (2012) 

“I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent”.

Life of pie as a movie teaches you that life can be defeated by fear but can only be won with sheer will and faith in yourself. Teaches you how fear is witty and deceitful and how it reaches for your weakest points. And it is no one else but us ourselves who let fear take charge of our weaknesses. How we ourselves are responsible for helping it reach to our weak spots with ease.

Fear begins taking control with your mind, settles there, and doesn’t let you express it, but you MUST. You must conquer it; you must let your mind tell it how strong you are. Because if you don’t, if it settles down in your both consciousness and subconsciousness and you keep suppressing and avoiding it, perhaps even try to forget, distract yourself, you keep the door open for it to enter and exit as it pleases.

The movie teaches you how it is vital to take control of your thoughts and mind and defeat the opponent who doesn’t let you be the best version of yourself.

It stars Irrfan Khan and Suraj Sharma and is based on YANN MARTELS  novel “LIFE OF PI”.
