Movie Info

A rich, cool, spoilt brat of a dog is abandoned on the wicked streets of Mumbai. He faces situations he has never faced before. He is confronted by dangerous, loony characters, the likes of which he has never met before; from mansions to streets, from five course meals to five courses of scraps, from soft beds to piles of garbage, from champagne to tap water.

You'd think the free-for-all atmosphere of the best Bollywood romps would be a perfect fit in the CG realm.

Roadside Romeo scores high on the tech front but considerably lower on script smarts.

A case of everything old feeling new again, for it is truly a refreshing and boundary-pushing entry in the world of feature animation.

Stray dogs sing, dance, find love and confront a gangster mongrel on the streets of Mumbai. India's first major computer-animated feature, a co-production of Disney and Bollywood giant Yash Raj Films, makes for an inauspicious debut.

Audience Reviews for Roadside Romeo

[img][/img] Packed with loads of memorable music, quotable lines, and even more memorable characters, Roadside Romeo is one of the best animated films i've ever seen. Bollywood's first ever computer animation is a highly likable and truly beautiful debut film. The colours and movements of the characters are enchantingly crisp and truly capture the cartooniness of hand drawn animated films in the process. The soundtrack is catchy and the romance tale is more engaging and edgy, and bravely more boundary pushing than animated films of the west. It benefits extremely well from it's sensually seductive voice acting that completely eradicates any sense of dullness. Roadside Romeo truly is an impressive achievement in modern animation, filled with charm and personality animated films dont seem to have anymore. I loved it, one of my favourite films.

TOTALLY COOL! Jugal Hansraj to Chuupa rustam nikla. The very first 2 D Bollywood Piece of Candy supported by Disney. I never ever thought Jugal Hansraj was so talented. I have feeling this guy never ages. He still looks like 27 something. lol One of the Disney guy said, they were really impressed by the Idea. What I most liked about this Movie were many quotes which Jugal picked from great Bollywood Classics. One of them was from.
"Amar Akbar Anthony." Aisa to Admi Doeech life time baagta he: Olympic ka race ho, ya Police ka Case.
Not to Mention the great voice of Saif Ali Khan as (Romeo) and Javed Jaffrey(Charlie Anna) This Movie is NOT only for Kids, Adults will laugh their socks off as well. It was even so fun to watch the making of. THIS MOVIE IS JUST SO FUN TO WATCH! Last funny line after credits
