Ammachi Ki Macchi (Grandmother’s Fish Curry)

(Grandmother’s Fish Curry)

Director: Sweta & Priya


Ammachi (grandmother) takes the help of Kallan – the coconut climber – to get fresh coconut for the fish curry she is preparing for her grandson. Tempted by the tantalizing smell of the curry, Kallan steals it. A cat and mouse game ensues and Ammachi finally catches Kallan. However, instead of handing him to the police, Ammachi befriends him with a simple act of kindness. Besides showing a certain way of life in the Indian state of Kerela, this comic, colourful and vibrant animation short outlines the wisdom and kindness that guides the people of India in their daily affairs.
