Storyline

Malegaon, a small town tucked away near the heart of India geographically, is fraught with communal tension and under severe 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. A microcosm that embodies and reflects the complexities of modern small town India. Where the modern and the traditional rub shoulders, where extreme poverty and extreme wealth are neighbours, bewildering in its ... Written by Anonymous

A must watch film !
7 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film is kind of special, unique & different from all other films. I mean these filmmakers of 'Superman of Malegoan' is like they thought common lets make a movie , take a camera, use some simple techniques & a movie is done! Critics talk about the big budget film & 'Superman of Malegoan' is the least budget film or you can say at-least a least budget superhero movie ever made !

The location of the film is a small village where Superman lives & enemy of Superman are the one which chew kind of tobacco & the baddie itself is a manufacturer of tobacco. And yes, there is girlfriend of Superman also !

In all, it is worth watching !
