“ The Legend of Bhagat Singh is one of Indian cinema's most ambitious projects to date. After three years of painstaking research and set construction, veteran film maker Raj Kumar Santoshi and actor Ajay Devgan shot the film in a short stretch of six months. The film released early due to competition from other films dealing with roughly the same subject. Overall it's a pretty solid film but one can't help shake the feeling that it could have been a far superior product if it had been worked on for a short while longer. ” - shopno_sk

A reel-life costumed actor is abducted and asked to be a real hero by Toon characters. (95 mins.)
Director: Kireet Khurana
“ 'Toonpur Ka Superrhero' is Bollywood's first live-action 3D animation combo movie. It's impressive to see how Indian cinema has come far in developing the animation. The work in this movie may not have reached the level of Pixar but it's still very good and the best I've seen from India. The motion and details were a little limited, the greenscreen filter was dreadful and the colours and toning was too strong but the characters looked lively. I only found the voice acting to be too loud and the humour was sometimes way overdone, which brings us to the writing. The script is just flat and full of clichés. The pacing is also inconsistent. At times its very slow and the characters' loudness really gets on your nerves but the latter portion is heavily rushed. Anu Malik's music is quite poor and it only slows down the pace. Ajay Devgan is competent. I have always found him to be weak in comedy but here he manages to make the viewer laugh in a couple of sequences. Sadly, Kajol is wasted even though she dominates the screen with her few scenes. 'Toonpur Ka Superrhero' shows that Bollywood is improving in its animation department but unfortunately it fails in the entertainment department. ” - shopno_sk
