Honoring Tradition, Family, and Yourself!
15 December 2015 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Sanjay is a typical Indian boy who is torn between his fictional superheroes and his family's tradition. Sanjay is your typical boy who wants to do what others do his age. He wants to play with his action figures rather than pray and honor with his family. The animation is quite first rate and high quality. Sanjay gets torn between reality and dreams. He soon learned the value of honoring his father and his family's tradition. I didn't realize that this was a short animated film before the actual feature film. I was a bit confused and uncertain about short animated films before the actual feature film presentation. I was with a school for a trip and still the film short was nice and award worthy. I wish the film director well. Sanjay Patel has quite a future in the animated film industry.
