Movie: Toonpur Ka Superrhero; Director: Kireet Khurana; Cast: Ajay Devgan, Kajol, Tanuja; Rating: **1/2
Expectations from the Ajay Devgan – Kajol starrer animation flick was high, but it failed to impress the masses in spite of bringing together the real life couple on-screen after a couple of years and being widely promoted as the first live action animation film of the country. It is the lack lustre script which is to be blamed for the doom of the film, feel critics. And giving company to the bad script is the low budget used for any animation film in India, Toonpur Ka Superrhero included.
The story revolves around Aditya Kumar, played by Ajay Devgan, who suddenly finds himself in a world surrounded by cartoons. The place is known as Toonpur and here Aditya Kumar will have to live up to his image as a strong hero by helping the good people Devtoons to fight against the villains Toonasurs.
While the concept was good, the story clearly lacks in imagination. It is the same old stuff which has been repeated in a cartoon time and again. And since this is a Bollywood production, Toonpur Ka Superrhero has every emotion that is characteristic of a Bollywood pot-boiler. All said, India’s first live action animated film is a disappointment!
