Supermen of Malegaon

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the name 'Malegaon'? If it's terrorism, then you're not alone. The town, that is home to several power looms, has been in the news for bomb blasts. 

But what is not known is its unique film industry. It's home to a local film industry that produces parody versions of popular films and the populace loves these films. I recently watched a documentary on this 'industry' so to say. Without batting an eyelid, I can say that it is one of the best things I've watched in recent times. Very few films can make you smile with every dialogue and yet, leave you with a dull pain as an afterthought. This is one of them.

This is a film for people who have been wanting to do something in their lives, but have been unable to do so for whatever reasons. It's a messenger of hope, one that perishes after its job has been done. A bit like Jatayu from Ramayana. 

If this doesn't get you off your lazy arse and make you want to go out and grab life by its balls, nothing will. 

 The entire film is on Youtube. Watch it now. And share.
