The award-winning Life of Pi (2001) by Yann Martel is about the life and times of Piscine Molitor Patel, better known as Pi (pronounced "pi", as in, 3.14)This wasn't the only movie in 2012 that Irrfan Khan was in with a character named Richard Parker.Advertisement: Award Snub: Suraj Sharma, who played Pi, did not get nominated for the Oscar for Best Actor.They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Despite the film's good reviews, some have taken issue with how the film portrays Pi's alternate interpretation of events in which the animals were all human passengers of the ship.This despite the fact that he practically carried the entire film on his shoulders, acting opposite a green screen to convince audiences that he was staring down a tiger, and starved himself and isolated himself from other people to get into character.Squick: The descriptions of how the hyena kills the zebra in the book.Film Acceptable Religious Targets: Pi respects and admires his strictly atheistic teacher, and devoutly practices Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity.Specifically, the way the film frames it makes it seem as if this alternate version is the true version of the story, whereas the book is more overt in leaving it as deliberately ambiguous as possible.

Sure, it's kind of a Foregone Conclusion, but it doesn't make it any less heartbreaking.The entire time he tells the story, he stares straight ahead into space, talking with no emotion, as tears run down his face.Pi crying as he's being taken to civilization after washing up on shore, because Richard Parker left before he could say thank you and goodbye.Please don't list it on a work's trope example list.Advertisement: The look of despair on Pi's face when the boat sinks is truly heartbreaking, especially knowing that his family and everything else he loved was on the boat.They had a much less significant part in the book, but in the movie, you very well do get the chance to become emotionally attached to them, making Pi's loss much more heavily felt.Let's not forget Pi losing his entire family when the severe storm sinks their ship, leaving him as the only survivor (and whether you believe the story that you see or the alternative one that he makes up, this is still the result either way). Life of Pi.
Perhaps Richard Parker was still too heavily sedated to be aggressive or noticeable.There was even a hyena under the tarp as well that apparently didn't get into a fight with Richard Parker beforehand.Another implication of the second story is that Pi was forced to cannibalize his mother - in the book it is only her head the cook threw overboard, and in the animal version Richard Parker eats part of Orange Juice's body after the hyena kills her.Those who show their normal behavior of creating burrows quickly get devoured by the island, and only a few, showing the abnormal behavior of climbing on trees, survive.Except, it does. If you choose to believe the second story, then what happened is that Pi found one of the other survivors' teeth in the boat, probably the cook's.That's how natural selection works! Life of the Party.
