From the Academy Award-winning creators of Toy Story, A Bugs Life and Monster Inc, Finding Nemo tells the comedic and eventful tale of two fish - the overly cautious Marlin and his curious son Nemo - who become separated in the Great Barrier Reef. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory, a friendly but forgetful fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son - who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.

Co-written and directed by Oscar-nominee Andrew Stanton, Finding Nemo sets a new mark for the art and technology of computer animation with its incredible underwater world populated with memorable characters. Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush, Allison Janney, Brad Garret, Barry Humphries, Alexander Gould are featured in the talented voice "cast".

SPE Films India director Uday Singh said, "After having broken box office records internationally, Nemo is finally here to make waves with Indian audiences. Even though Nemo is a complete fantasy, it's based on things that are familiar to audiences. The father-son relationship, going to school for the first time - these are things everyone understands. Keeping in mind this universal theme, we are dubbing this movie in Hindi and giving the masses a chance to experience the Disney magic."
