Fun for kids

Toonpur Ka Superrhero - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Toonpur Ka Superrhero. There’s less to film-stars than meets the eye. Aditya (Ajay Devgan), an action star, bashes up a dozen baddies and pulls off the scariest of stunts with the fly-swatting ease on screen, but in real life, he’s anything but a hero for his kids. They know that their dad gets the credit for what the stuntmen do. In reality, the superstar Aditya is an ordinary soul, who can’t even bowl.

Aditya itches to be a hero for his kids. Opportunity knocks when he’s kidnapped by a bunch of cartoons from Toonpur. The animated characters called Devtoons adore Aditya’s onscreen bravado and want him to fight their enemies Toonasurs, led by the devilish Jagaro. To their dismay, the action star Aditya turns out to be a wimp.

Meanwhile, Aditya spots the chance to be a hero in the eyes of his kids, so he takes the battle to the evil Toonasurs, literally pummelling them in a Gladiator like duel until he comes face-to-face with Jagaro.

Obvious question - Is the film entertaining enough? Well, yes if you happen to be a preteen who just clambered up the chair to read this review. No, if you are a grown-up teen hooked to watching superheroes in their undies.

Directed by Kireet Khurana, Toonpur Ka Superrhero is strictly a kids’ film, conceptualized and crafted particularly to tickle the giggly ha-ha, he-he types. To a soberer mind, the animated characters are clichéd cardboard cutouts. Like there’s this obese, Gujarati spouting aunty Big Ben, or the provocatively dressed, busty and far from size-zero Loveena, or the Marathi hawaldar Pandu, or the Bollywood loving sardar boy Bolly, or the plump, bling-laden musician Guppy, or the computer geek Lappy, or the sagacious Gyandev.

A few sequences will have the kids in splits, like the one where Devgn dresses up as a cowboy and rides an ostrich. The screenplay is twisted to convenience in the closing reels, to include the hero’s entire family in the final combat. But more than its plot, what makes Toonpur Ka Superrhero work is the quality animation work that it boasts of.

Ajay Devgan doesn’t really bring the house down with his comedy but is quite good as the reel hero trying to be one in real - rather cartoon - world. Kajol, playing his wife, gets a brief role, and the two kids are just about watchable.

In short, Toonpur Ka Superrhero is a Christmas candy for kids. Watch it if you are a kid, or an adult with kids.
