It was a very touching and insightful movie. The reason it got 4 out 5 stars because there were a couple scenes that weren't weren't really necessary and didn't really have much to do with his story.

It’s the kind of movie that wouldn’t exist without awards, and makes a compelling argument for phasing them out altogether.

A sober and yet profoundly stirring contemplation of family, roots, identity and home, which engrosses throughout the course of its two-hour running time.

If Saroo’s story seems out-of-this world, the team behind this film have risen to meet the challenge it sets. There may be a sense of inevitability about Saroo’s ultimate destination, but what counts here is the journey.
