There were quite a few animation films that released in 2008. However, not even one of them turned out to be successful at the box office. ROADSIDE ROMEO at least stood out from animation point of view while JUMBO made waves due to Akshay Kumar factor. However, rest just fizzled completely hence putting a question mark on the future of animation films in India. Here is a low down on the performance of some of the most notable animation films which were unleashed to the audience in the year gone by.

ROADSIDE ROMEO

ROADSIDE ROMEO


ROADSIDE ROMEO:
If not for Yash Raj Films' practice of promoting their films to the minimal, ROADSIDE ROMEO could well have been the second Bollywood animation film to have worked with the audience after HANUMAN. While one or two have still been decent attempts at the least, the remaining have been plain shoddy.

Things could have just gone right for ROADSIDE ROMEO had it been pitched amongst the audience in a better way. It was released sans any fanfare and worse, the two best parts about the film – its animation and coming together of Saif and Kareena behind the mike – were not just not highlighted enough for the audience.

ROADSIDE ROMEO may not be quite emotionally charged or hilariously funny like its Hollywood counterparts. But still, it is watchable at the least. And for that, most of the credit should go to Tata Elexsi – VCL that has managed to get some stupendous 3D animation in place. Whether it is shot taking, moving frames, transition from one situation to another, lip movements or lighting – everything about ROADSIDE ROMEO comes across as a fresh experience. In fact for those who haven't been exposed to the Hollywood animation flicks, this is a truly unique experience.
