Govind Nihalani turns to animation films

MUMBAI: Known for his serious films like Aakrosh, Vijeyta and Ardh Satya, filmmaker, director and cinematographer Govind Nihalani is returning to films after a eight-year hiatus with an animation feature film titled Kamlu-Happy Happy.

The 84-minute film has a simple message about the impossible dreams and friendship with adventure and four songs. "It is definitely a departure from my type of films. It?s not a serious film. I love animations and have long been working on this film," commented the filmmaker.

The film depicts loads of positive values about dreams coming true, bonding with friends and loved ones. It is all about dreaming of the impossible. The protagonist of the film is a baby camel in Rajasthan who wants to fly. The film is for both adults and children and is full of adventures.

Set in Rajasthan, the film follows the style of mainstream American animation though the storytelling is of another kind. Even the characters have been styled in a different manner; with their bodies shaped in V shape. The story is set against the Spartan backdrop of Rajasthan while the interiors have been designed using actual havelis complete with murals on the wall and even signs of decay on the walls.

About the making of the film Nihalani said, ?Being newcomers, we had to plan ahead and everything was pre-decided. Not only that, we had readied the background score well in advance and the scenes and character movements were planned in sync with it."
