Did Dev Patel & Nicole Kidman's LION poster remind us of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE?
The makers of Garth Davis debut feature film LION starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman released its first official poster in India. The film which had its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival has garnered lots of praises for tracing the emotional journey of an orphan who gets adopted by an Australian couple, who later succeeds in tracing down his parents in India through means of Google Earth.
The poster divided in three parts shows three different stages of the film. First part is of its lead actor Dev Patel, while in the second part we see a child in a tattered attire running on railway tracks and in the third part we see two foreigners looking affectionately at a poor kid and all these instantly reminds of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, which interestingly also starred Dev Patel.
Also starring Sunny Pawar, Tanishtha Chatterjee, Priyanka Bose, Deepti Naval and a cameo by Nawazuddin Siddiqui the film will hit Indian silver screens on 24th February.
