If you hadn’t known, the Disney corporation makes various films targeted towards other countries aside from English speaking ones, an example of this is Zokkomon and Once Upon a Warrior (starring Siddharth).
Zokkomon was released in 2011, in Hindi Language. Zokkomon is played by Darsheel Safary, and also starsAnupam Kher, Tinnu Anand, Manjari Fadnis and Anirudh Ramesh.
This wild Family genre, Superhero Adventure starts out with young orphan Kunal (Safary) discovering he must leave his boarding school that he loves so much to go to his new legal guardian: his Chacha- Deshraj (Anupam Kher).
After leaving behind his home and friends, he finds himself cast aside by his Uncle and Aunt, who favor their biological son and consider Kunal a nuisance (similar to the story of Harry Potter). At his uncle’s school, children get beaten for being clever and smart in class, excelling or lagging behind is discouraged in his new town: only normality is accepted.
His uncle, finds himself in a bit of trouble when the government suspects him of embezzlement of school funds, and decides to kill off Kunal and use his parent’s inheritance money to get out of hot water.
So Kunal is declared dead, and everyone believes that the plastic body burning on the pyre is his, but intruth Kunal is not dead, and Kunal will return as ZOKKOMON and bring the town back to life!
Our Rating: 5.3/10
I would be giving this a lower rating, but the fact that Zokkomon boy and his Didi, go homeless in a Bollywood prop/costume garage while pulling out a dance number slightly amps up the ratings. Mind you, only slightly. This film is great for young children, families and pre-teens, a bit boring though for an older crowd, as the film, though short in length, seems to drag on. Kind of a unique take on super hero Bollywood films though, as this is set mostly in a village.
