Storyline

Sanjay, a young boy, is watching his favourite cartoon show, the Super Team, while his father is preparing for the daily meditation. Undoubtedly, this is the day's most important activity, nevertheless, the boy has no interest in joining his father. But does Sanjay know that, sometimes, cunning and skilled adversaries can be hiding in the most unusual of places? Written by Nick Riganas

'SANJAY'S SUPER TEAM': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A 7 minute Pixar animated short film; which accompanied 'THE GOOD DINOSAUR' in theaters. It tells the story of an Indian boy, who imagines the Hindu gods (his father has taught him to believe in), as mighty superheroes. It was directed by veteran animator, turned director, Sanjay Patel. Patel used his own childhood, growing up as an Indian immigrant (in 1980s San Bernardino), as inspiration for the short. I found the film to be amusing, slightly emotional and full of decent animation. It's also a great, thoughtful idea for a kids' cartoon short. It doesn't quite have that magical touch though; that Pixar's greats do. 'SANJAY'S SUPER TEAM' is definitely a well made short, but it's not spectacular.
