SYNOPSIS
'Delhi Safari' is the story of a journey undertaken by a cub leopard, his mother, a monkey, a bear and a parrot when the forest they live in is on the verge of destruction. Builders have encroached their forest and the animals decide to go to Delhi and protest outside parliament and ask the parliament some very simple yet pertinent questions they were - why has man become the most dangerous animal? Doesn't man understand that if the forests and the animals don't co-exist with humans, the balance of the ecosystem will be endangered?
There are more than a few lessons nicely woven into the plot of Delhi Safari, but thankfully this animation film from director Nikhil Advani never talks down to its young audience, or beats them on the head with its overarching message of wildlife and environmental preservation. At a crisp 95 minutes, the film is an enjoyable and entertaining adventure, despite never achieving Pixar-level greatness. ...Read full review
With satire, spoof, humour and wit, director, Nikhil Advani has highlighted the ongoing aadmi vs animal battle, the desperate need for preservation of wildlife and the downside of deforestation. His creatures entertain and tell the story in true Bollywood style (too many songs and too much drama `foxes` the plot). The problem is, he doesn`t cut to the chase, and it turns out to be more like a long safar than a safari. The effects are striking in parts and amongst the best we`ve seen in India, but few scenes are deja vu `Lion King`. Alex and Bajrangi with their histrionics and rip-`roaring` banter are the stars of this show. While the cartoon creatures will appeal to kids, there`s more for adults here. The `real` Men of the jungle that is. ...Read full review
Delhi Safari, directed by Nikhil Advani is a joy ride that will take you on a fantasy trail from Mumbai to Delhi. It also sends an important message of protecting animals, a message many NGOs and government agencies are finding hard to spread. And this is where the medium of cinema does the job best. The story that starts at Mumbai`s National Park where a builder encroaches in the forest to construct a housing complex, promising homes close to nature. The close proximity to nature obviously comes at the cost of cutting trees and even killing animals. ...Read full review
A bunch of animals are off on a mission. To tell the powers-that-be in New Delhi that their forests are in mortal danger, and so are they. Cub leopard Yuvi, his feisty mom, a chatty parrot, a large bear, and a wicked monkey set off on a journey full of adventure. Nikhil Advani`s `Delhi Safari` does a great service to the animation-for-kids genre by stepping out of the tired mythological stories, and creating animals with distinctive personalities. ...Read full review
