PG-13 | | Biography, Drama
A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.
4000 boys were auditioned to play the young Saroo Brierly, according to line producer Pravesh Sahni.
Saroo's train is shown passing a thumbs-up shaped hill in the distance. This hill is located near Ankai in Maharashtra. A train from Khandwa to Calcutta would not pass Ankai as it is in the opposite direction, towards Mumbai.
There is no opening title card, only opening credits; the title card doesn't appear until the end.
