Frankly speaking, there's zilch hype for Toonpur Ka Superrhero. Even though its principal stars, Ajay Devgn and Kajol, have gone out of their way to promote their new film, even though Eros has left no stone unturned to promote the film, for some strange, inexplicable reason, the film isn't on the 'must watch' list of die-hard movie addicts. Sure, there's awareness for the film, but not the type that would compel you to watch it first day, first show.
But never judge a book by its cover and never judge a movie by its poster. Toonpur Ka Superrhero may not be the most satisfying and gratifying movie experience you've had, but the film at least makes an effort to go where Hindi films have been before.
Toonpur Ka Superrhero is not only India's first live action full-length animation feature, made on a lavish budget, it also has all the matinee masala that the other Friday offerings do. There's a hero, a heroine, a bunch of virtuous as well as wicked characters, a femme fatale and a baddie. The only difference is that this film has flesh and blood characters intermingling with animated characters.
