Film: Supermen of Malegaon; Cast: Sheikh Nasir, Akram Khan, Shafique and Farogh Jafri; Director: Faiza Ahmad Khan; Rating: 4.5/5
There is global cinema and national cinema. In a country like India, there's also regional cinema. What many don't know is that India is also home to what can be called - 'local cinema' where films are produced and consumed locally.
Supermen of Malegaon is a hilarious, poignant and well-researched take on one of the dozens of local film industries existing in the country.
It is a love poem to cinema, an ode to the spirit of human ingenuity, a passionate tale about making films and it's hilarious to boot. For most of the audience, this might be the funniest documentary ever made.
