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
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
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.
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.
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."
