I think I may have finally discovered the ultimate furry fanservice movie, an animated Bollywood film called "Roadside Romeo."

Here's the rundown: Romeo is a pampered pooch who gets dumped by his family in the streets of Mumbai. He starts earning his keep on the streets by opening a hair salon for stray dogs. Then he tries to win over a female nightclub dancer named Laila and avoid the wrath of the neighborhood don Charlie Ana, who basically goes around scaring all the dogs in the neighborhood into giving him protection money (bones).

*Still with me after all that? Don't worry, the opening sequence with Romeo doing an R&B music video-style dance number complete with girls, a mansion and bling pretty much screams that this is a totally logic-free movie. Unfortunately I could only see the first hour or so of it because the disk was damaged, but from what I saw I thought it was pretty good.*

What astounded me about it was how unapologetically sexy it was for a talking animal movie. I mean, it's not at all smutty, but it felt sort of like a cross between Oliver and Company and a rap music video: the dogs all walk on their hind legs and do sexy hip-hop dances, titillating butt wags and all, and they're designed with attractive facial features (ESPECIALLY the girls). Hell, one of the trailers even has the camera man interviewing Laila and getting aroused.

With most furry movies, like Robin Hood or Balto, you have to use your imagination a little, come up with some fanart or fanfiction to make the characters as sexy and you want them to be. This pretty much does all the work for the fanartists

The main trailer doesn't show much, but here's the opening sequence:

and one scene with Laila, which left my mouth agape. You'll see why:

BTW, is it me or does Laila look a lot like a cross between Viniger and the polar bear from those old CGI Coca Cola commercials?

Could you clarify something for me. Are you "Furries = Bad", "Furries = Good" or "Furries = Complete Indifference"?

Regarding this movie, its more surprised indifference than anything else. I identify myself as furry, so i guess id say furry=good to me.

Oh okay, its just I've seen so many people get in such a mood about this and many non-furries saying its just been made for furries to fap to. So you can image how ready I've gotten to reply to blind opinion on the movie.

Really though I agree this Roadside Romeo could have been better especially with Disney willing to lend a hand, but the company they'd "partnered" with didn't do much to treat this film as if it was worth much, and they even released information (like the release date) without informing Disney. It wasn't a very organized relationship. Plus this is the first full CGI movie out of India. Good first attempt I'd say.

Imo, it wasnt that exciting of a film to begin with. From what little i know about Bollywood, every single film that comes out of it is essensially a 90 minute pop music video, ie "two extreemly attractive people fall in love, flashmobs appear, other stuff happens for a little while, the end," and while it was a little different so see it with cartoon animals, RSR really doesnt break the mold for either family animated films or Bollywood. It was very ameturish and had a plot consisting mostly of random events, but it had its moments.

There going through what most of the Western world went through in the 20th century. They're still at the beginning with the film especially animated films, its why Disney was trying to help them take it off, but as you've seen they haven't pulled it off with the story. The animations been done quite well for beginners. Its a start at least.

So, there's furries in India. Shouldn't be too surprising really.

And yeah, serious earworm.

It's not that there are furries in India, I mean there's furries in a major Bollywood film that leave little to the imagination.

And remember, just because it's an earworm doesn't mean it isn't good.

I've seen furrier foreign mainstream works on youtube (ever see those French Orangina commercials?), though not a movie specifically.

Just watched the one with the cougar and the one with the hyena, the first made absolutely no sense (cool animation, tho) and the second was hilarious. Roadside Romeo is more like softcore furry fuel.

What about the new BBC series Mongrels? It's puppets but they are shown "doggystyling" in a couple episodes.

Goodness, I haven't seen that one. I know there's this Italian film based on Noah's Arc (funnily enough done by the same people that did the animated Titanic) where all the female animals are designed with hourglass figures and big boobs.

I think I want that song now.
NWolfman's avatar
The first one? I know, it's a fucking ear worm! I couldn't walk five feet from my computer today without it getting stuck in my head!
PrincessHannah's avatar
Actually, I was talking about the one with Laila. I didn't watch the first one (should I?)

IMO, that's the better song. But her song is pretty good too, whoever is voicing her sings really nicely.
