Over the last few years, there has been a lot of buzz happening in the animation scene in India. After successfully producing and releasing My Friend Ganesha (a 2D composite animated film) in 2007, Koffee Break Pictures Ltd is all set to roll out their next animation feature film Green Chic - Finding Dad. It's a 2D animation film promoting vegetarianism.
Green Chic - Finding Dad is the story of a chick named Chiclet and his family who are living happily in the jungle. One day the parents of Green Chic are walking in the jungle, when fate suddenly takes a turn and the mother chick is captured by a human for his selfish purpose. The father chick in an attempt to save his wife also gets captured by the human, unable to fight against the human strength. Learning about his parent's fate the Chiclet treads on a path to find his Dad and decides with determination that he will rescue his only surviving parent from the clutches of the humans. In this journey from jungle to the city, Chiclet, along with his friends Ginger (Monkey) and Quacky (Duck) come across various hardships during which he gets to make new friends as well as enemies. Chiclet, against all odds, braves the city life and encounters all sorts of city dangers.
Talking on the film Mr.Apurva Shah, Producer, Koffee Break Pictures says "This film is very dear and close to our heart. We are attempting to show the world that we should love animals and let them live just as we live freely. Our objective is to spread awareness among the youth about the atrocities caused on animals and learn to respect them. Through this film we would also like to discourage consumption of non-vegetarian food which is one of the prime reasons of Global Warming."
Green Chic - Finding Dad is conceived, written and directed by Sudhir Mehta. It's a first-of-its kind animation film in Hinglish. Interestingly, Green Chick also sets a benchmark by being the first Indian Animation film based on an originally coined character.
The film is slated for a nationwide release in the month of November and will have simultaneous theatrical release in the international markets as well.
