A quite incredible story which brought a tear to my eye towards the end.

And yet I have the feeling that without the warmth and emotion of Dev Patel, and the raw natural presence of Sunny Pawar as Patel’s younger incarnation, this would have been little more than a Hallmark movie – which would have been completely unfair to Saroo’s story.

I was fascinated, but only because Dev rescued this from being Nicole Kidman in a bad wig.
