MUMBAI: After the commercial success of recent Indian animation films like Hanuman and My Friend Ganesha, Elecom-Fiesta Entertainment has joined the bandwagon and is ready with itâ€™s ani-flick Cheenti Cheenti Bang Bang.
This 80 minutes long film, which seems to draw on the title of 1964 children’s book by Bond-creator Ian Fleming’s – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, (which later inspired the 1968 film by the same name) is neither a copy nor an inspired version of it. It is an entirely different story of two Kingdoms of Ants at loggerheads with each other.
However, it is not a battle story altogether. There is a romantic twist too, as the Prince and Princess of warring kingdoms fall in love. Cheenti Cheenti Bang Bang works on the premise that – War Never Pays.
This animation flick features the voices of Indian actors like Ashish Vidyarthi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Asrani and Anjan Srivastva.
