Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Walt Disney Studios and production house Yash Raj Films partnered up for this unusual family-oriented co-production, which works a traditional Indian story into a Western animated framework. Romeo (Saif Ali Khan) is a pup who has it all -- from wealthy masters, to a luxurious car to ride around in, to lots of appealing female dogs with whom he can party. But Romeo hits the skids when his owners promptly decide to move, and cruelly leave him behind, dropping him on the streets of Mumbai. Left to fend for himself, Romeo encounters a wealth of situations he's never known before, including a pack of four strays who terrify him and a tough, mobster-like dog named Charlie Anna (Javed Jaffrey) who patrols the neighborhood. Fortunately, fate has a few happy surprises in store for Romeo, including the love of the ravishing Laila (Kareena Kapoor) and newfound friendships with the initially intimidating strays.
