Khatarnak Khai

A stopmotion film

What do you get when you put 5 enthusiastic animation students, tons of wire, foam, and a 2-minute story?

A lot of sweat and tears, and a typical Indian family on holiday!

A young man who has given up all hope in life,

is about to take his last step off the edge of a scenic cliff.

But a noisy, boisterous Indian family arrive at the spot for a picnic.

Can the poor chap even die in peace?
