Fast paced and furious, the entire nightmare sequence is a child’s thoughts attempting to understand the damage human beings are causing to the environment and its consequences.

Animagic’s connection with the Chakachak project started with the screening of “Raju & I” at the 0110 Indo-British Film Festival in Mumbai. Among those present in the audience was well-known filmmaker Sai Paranjpe (known for beloved films like Chashme Baddoor, Katha, Disha and Saaz).

Impressed with our efforts, she wasted no time in visiting the studio the next morning with an idea-an animated nigthmare sequence for her children’s film, “Chakachak”.


The animated sequence asked for scenes of pollution, destruction and eco disasters. The graphic representations of each scene were choreographed to visually blend with the song composed by “3 brothers and a Violin” and sung by Usha Uthup. The film was designed with a thoughtful selection of colours and an expressionist treatment to highlight the horrors of pollution.

The vision of the designers was carefully translated to create what has been termed by some to be “a visual tour de force of graphic expression.”

Through these pages you will glimpse some of the concept & colour art created during the design stage as well as many of the final stills from the finished film.


The gallery of pictures from various stages of creating this piece might help us to share some of these experiences with you.
