The effort to spruce up stunts in Hindi films seems to know no bounds. The latest innovation on the action front is about ten-minutes of animation action in Cash, a la Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill featuring Zayed Khan, Shamita Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh, Esha Deol and Ajay Devgan.
Explains director Anubhav Sinha, "We've worked very hard on the action scenes of Cash. And I'd really not like them to be compared with Dhoom or even my own Dus. But yes, what we've done in Cash is unique. For the first time we've juxtaposed live action with animation action. As we see the characters fighting they turn into animated characters on screen."
Anubhav goes to great pains to explain the animation isn't of the kind we've seen in Hum Tum or Ta Ra Rum Pum. "It's more like what happens in Tarantino's Kill Bill. Action in our cinema has to by its very nature get better. Today audiences are watching Spiderman 3 in Bhojpuri. We can't afford to lag behind."
