Life of Pi (2012)

The market where Pi follows Anandi has a wall poster of 'Vasantha Maligai'.

Santosh compares the family move from India to Christopher Columbus' voyage. Later, he confronts The Cook (Gerard Depardieu) who played the character in the film, 20 yrs earlier.
In both films the numeral Pi is of great significance to the main character.
Pi tells a story about a Tiger as a metaphor for surviving a shipwreck through cannibalism and Bernard Black tells a story about an Elephant losing a Balloon as a metaphor for a War refugee being investigated by a journalist who falls in love with his daughter and marries her and gives up his career to become a lens grinder in Omsk.
