Holy Shit!

Watch this film directed by my dear friend Rajesh Thakare and his associate Troy Vasanth, both from the prestigious National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad.
This animation has won multiple awards and countless hearts.... GLOBALLY.

 (L-R) : Rajesh Thakare with Troy Vasanth

Rajesh, whom I fondly address as "Raja" since our younger days, shows good promise that he will indeed ring true to his name someday -- ruling Indian Cinema like a "King". This is his first attempt at movie-making that earned the world and its heart over by its sheer simplicity and truthful narrative. Bound to bring a smile to any true Mumbaikar.... And if you haven't had the good fortunes to visit Mumbai city yet, well... this one's a curtain raiser for you!

This movie has earned the following awards so far :

Jury Critic Award MIFF 2012
Second Best Animation MIFF 2012

Keep rooting for these men and their work -- they're all set with this propeller on them!
