Supermen of Malegaon

It's been a while but Bollywood is back on the blog. this time it's for Supermen of Malegaon. The film was made way back in 2008 and is just about to get a theatrical release. So sit down and watch the trailer (it is subtitled in English) and laugh at the images below...

Malegaon, a small town tucked away near the heartland of India, 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 spurred a group of cinema enthusiasts to make their own films-quirky, low budget, socially aware and notoriously funny spoofs of Bollywood films. Their ambition has grown and now they are ready to take on Hollywood and Superman.

We follow them on this journey. At times funny, tragic, contemplative. Always warm and engaging. And as the film begins to take shape, through schemes and approaches that are sublimely ingenious, simply bizarre and purely hysterical, we also slowly discover Malegaon itself. The film is a tribute to a spirit that can never be vanquished, the spirit that enables the Supermen of Malegaon to make Malegaon's Superman.
