Life of Pi, Mumbai Animation team, Rhythm and Hues

All thanks to Jeetu for arranging our tickets for LOP show at IMax !!! It was an Incredible movie, thoroughly enjoyed it with all of my friends from Rhythm and Hues !

It was a reunion for me to meet all of my R&H friends at the IMax, Wadala here in Mumbai. There was total chaos as far as the tickets distribution was concerned, but somehow Jeetu managed to take out two for us (me and my wife Sampada). It was a thrill and a bit of nostalgia mixed in it as i watched my scenes being showed in the movie. Back when i was in R&H we used to scream as our scenes came up during the movie. This time it was quiet a different experience with everyone into the story of the movie and hardly anyone bothering to scream at the time of the our scenes. Tells you a lot of the caliber of the film also. How the director got the people involved even those who have worked on it for several months and also has read the book. Needless to mention but, Kudos to Ang Lee for an incredible movie experience. This photo was taken in the lobby of the theater complex.

Over the past 21 years, i’ve worked in the animation industry in numerous commercials, films including variety of different mainstream Hollywood movies like “The Golden Compass” and “Life of Pi” both of which won an Oscar and BAFTA for best visual effects in 2008 and 2013 respectively.
