Randeep Ramesh in The Guardian:
It’s a marriage made in movie heaven. Bollywood and Hollywood, which have long peddled shared visions of chaste romance and unlikely friendships, today finally ties the knot with Disney’s first Indian-made animated feature film in Hindi: Roadside Romeo.
The movie, which took two years to make, tells the story of a pampered pet dog after he is abandoned on the streets of Mumbai. Released today, for the start of India’s Diwali holiday weekend, the film is a joint venture between Walt Disney Pictures and Yash Raj Films.
Being made in India meant the budget, thought to be $7m (£4m), was 15 times less than the average cost of Disney’s Pixar movies such as Ratatouille.
