A Super Powered DVD
You know a movie has got to be funny if its lead character is an anorexic Superman in rubber slippers. Hence when the documentary Supermen Of Malegaon released in cinemas a few months ago it raised a lot more than eyebrows with the unexpectedly rave reviews it received. And now after bagging 14 international film awards and the Best Documentary from the Indian Documentary Producers’ Association in India, Supermen Of Malegaon is finally out on DVD. Many films in the past have told the story of small town India’s craze for Hindi cinema. But none of them come close to the eccentricity of the people of Malegaon. A small town tucked away in the heart of India, Malegaon is fraught with communal tension and under economic depression. To escape the harsh reality of their world, its people seek refuge in the fantastical world of cinema. This passion for cinema has driven a group of cinema enthusiasts to create their own films – quirky, low budget, socially aware and notoriously funny spoofs of Bollywood films. Spurred on by their success they now aspire to take on Hollywood and Superman. We follow them on this journey as the film takes shape through schemes and approaches that are sublimely ingenious, simply bizarre and purely hysterical. Whether a movie fan or not, this documentary will leave you in absolute awe of these extremely spirited film makers. You can pick up your copy of the DVD at a music or retail store near you.
