“Delhi Safari” takes its viewers to an interesting journey with cross-cultural characters, but most importantly, focuses on a social theme.  The film highlights the real world themes about urban sprawl and the effects of humanity on the global ecosystem. The animation in the film certainly defined the new age technology. Director Nikhil Advani and the team of animators at Krayon Pictures have put time, energy, passion and 3D technology into ensuring that their family entertainer is of a standard thus far not seen in the nation. It is also one of the few animation films that didwell in the overseas market. Apart from the new-age animation, Nikhil has also made sure that the story of the film is heartfelt.

With an interesting story-line and new-age animation, Nikhil Advani’s “Delhi Safari” is an entertaining crossover piece and well deserving to win the National Award!  Hopefully, this will set a trend for more quality animated films to come out of Bollywood!
