Delhi Safari

Delhi Safari,” directed by Nikhil Advani, will be in the­aters across the United States in the top 20 regional mar­kets fea­tured on over 70 screens start­ing Decem­ber 7, Applied Art Pro­duc­tions announced Wednesday.

The film fea­tures the vocal tal­ents of Hollywood’s favorite stars, includ­ing Jane Lynch (Glee), Cary Elwes (Princess Bride), Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty), Brad Gar­rett (Rata­touille, Every­body Loves Ray­mond), Christo­pher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Jason Alexan­der (Sein­feld), Car­los Alazraqui (Happy Feet) and Tara Strong (Rugrats, Lit­tle Mer­maid). Delhi Safari’s mes­sage is the preser­va­tion of the envi­ron­ment and the cel­e­bra­tion of wildlife.

Delhi Safari is a jour­ney for these ani­mals to stand up for their own rights, the rights to exist in nature and on the planet. They have to go to the humans because they’re in charge. What is really won­der­ful about it is even with such a huge cast, every part is very funny and unique,” said Lynch, the voice of the female flamingo.

We’ve got a strong fam­ily that deals with cri­sis together; we’ve got a group of char­ac­ters that go off on an adven­ture together with a mis­sion, and a happy end­ing with fan­tas­tic music and great per­for­mances,” said Williams. the voice of Begam, Mother Leopard.

In the movie, the tran­quil­ity of jun­gle life is threat­ened when a real estate devel­oper begins con­struc­tion on a new sub­di­vi­sion. The unlikely team of a leop­ard cub named Yuvi; his mother, the leop­ardess Begam; an unruly mon­key, Bajrangi; and a lov­able bear named Bagga real­ize that the only way to stop things before it’s too late is by talk­ing to the humans. This will take a major feat: enlist­ing the sup­port of the only human-speaking ani­mal, Alex, the Parrot.

Long since “off the reser­va­tion,” Alex lives in a high-end neigh­bor­hood with all the con­ve­niences of mod­ern life, from air con­di­tion­ing to a mas­sive flat-screen tele­vi­sion, and a mas­ter. Sur­rounded by his com­forts, he lives in denial that he is someone’s pet. When he reject­ing the pleas of his friends, they resort to kid­nap­ping him and show­ing him what is becom­ing of their pre­cious home.

The clock is tick­ing as the troop set off on a seem­ingly impos­si­ble jour­ney meet­ing an eclec­tic array of char­ac­ters along the way. Arriv­ing in Delhi, they cause absolute com­mo­tion and with it, suc­cess­fully get the atten­tion of the media. Now in the spot­light, they must share their story and get the sup­port of the only ones who can make a dif­fer­ence: humans.

Ani­ma­tion for the 90-minute movie was pro­duced by Krayon Pic­tures, a 3D ani­ma­tion stu­dio in Pune, India. Directed by Nikhil Advani, the film is an orig­i­nal screen­play by the writ­ing team of Nikhil Advani, Girish Dhamija and Suresh Nair, with addi­tional dia­logue by Milap Zaveri. Delhi Safari was pro­duced by Anu­pama Patil and Kishor Patil and exec­u­tive pro­duced by Fred deWysocki, Ni***th Takia, Aditya Nath Jha and Nam­rata Sharma.
