First animated children's film in Kannada

Produced by Kolors n Motion Studios Pvt Ltd, in association with Shree Mahalakshmi Combines, the film tries to bring about social transformation via animation.

Says Sheshagiri Yelameli, a documentary maker and the director of the film: “We have used elements of magic and fantasy with the underlying message that by teaching others, education can be made accessible to all classes of society. Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and even actors Shivarajkumar and Upendra come in their animated forms, showing children that hard work is the key to success.”

Anand Kidambi of Kolors n Motion says the film will be screened for the first time in Karnataka at the JSS Mutt, Suttur, on Monday to around 3,500 children in the Mutt’s state-of-the-art auditorium.

Theatreperson, singer and Rajya Sabha member B Jayashree is the chief guest. This will be followed by shows at Eeshwari and Srinivasa theatres in Bangalore the next day. Made entirely in the studios of Bangalore with more than 30 BFA and DFA holders from Davangere, Gadag and the City working on it, ‘Chintu’s Skool’ has music by V Manohar, lyrics by M N Vyasarao.

Actor Ramesh Arvind and others have lent their voices to the characters.   The producers plan to take the film to schools across the State soon. For more details, contact
