great casting, great timing - so critical when you're doing humour; extracted great performances from both, kids and adults in the film, great lighting, music, dance, and CG with attention to detail. basically, great conversion from storyboard to final film. to top it, shoubhik was most receptive to even a few extreme suggestions for change post the inital film presentation. net, shoubhik is a consummate filmmaker.
