About the Film
Malegaon is a small town in the heart of Maharashtra that is fraught with communal tension and is under severe economic depression. To escape the harsh reality of their world, its people find solace 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. This documentary is a journey through that movie making process…Malegaon Ka Superrman is about their growing ambitions and how they try to take on Hollywood and Superman, in a peculiar way. It is also a heartbreakingly hilarious look at the personal lives of those involved in the process.
