Safety Last! (Criterion Collection) I already wrote up my review of Criterion's Blu-ray for Harold Lloyd's Safety Last! (read it here) so most of you should already know I highly recommend this title. This is a silent film right up there with the likes of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin's best.

It was a remarkable day in director Nikhil Advani’s life as he received the National Award for his stereoscopic 3D animation film Delhi Safari. Released on the 19th of October 2012, the film won the award of the Best Animation Film.

It is also one of the few animation films that did well in the overseas market. Apart from the new-age animation, Nikhil has also made sure that the story of the film is heartfelt. »
