Delhi Safari - Preview
Dir: Nikhil Advani
Delhi Safari has great animation, especially some of the 3D bits, even if it is way behind in some areas. But writing in terms of both plot and dialogue are huge let downs.

Delhi Safari looks like an animation film in Hindi that might actually justify it being in animation, is non-mythological and in fact looks like it has a story. The story involving animals wanting to save their home, their jungle looks like it is also going to justify the use of animals in the story. Else many a time you find stories using animals just to add some cute factor.
It also seems like the film is targeted towards kids especially considering the whole 'green' theme. Sure, adults need to be more aware of the damage they are doing to the environment than kids. But, something about the voices and the language used makes it sound like its for kids. In that context, the one film reference in the trailer seems out-of-place considering that kids wouldn't get the reference at all. I just hope the makers had the target audience in mind and didn't get into trying to please all crowds. However it will be great to just hear the voices of Boman Irani, Akshaye Khanna, Govinda, Urmila Matondkar in a different context.
The one exciting bit is that the production banner/animation studio is based out of Pune! How cool is that! And it looks pretty good too. Let's just hope the rest of the film – the story, dialogue makes it a good entertainer.
