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

Loved It
28 July 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The movie is so heart warming that I can't hold myself from writing about the movie. First time when I came across this title I thought it will be one of the C grade movies from the biggest film industry on planet. Then a friend recommended this movie in facebook. I have been watching all sort of movies in English,Hind,Korean,Telegu,Tamil and many other foreign languages but nothing has ever touched my heart or moved me like this one. I have never ever written a review so not sure how to write one for this outstanding work. All I can say is I have not only enjoyed the movie but I Loved the movie. In spite of a humble background how these extra ordinary men followed their dream or are still willing to follow their dreams will inspire everyone. Its a must watch for all the movie lovers. Far better than all the bol bacchans and Ishqzadesss
