Bollywood, Hindi language film industry in Mumbai obliged by nearly as fast as movies McDonald's makes hamburgers, has entertained Indian families for production. Curiously though there is no equivalent of a Bollywood movie Walt Disney. Well, now there is a possibility — Zokkomon, live-action happy, silly and fun, Yes, Walt Disney Studios India.
Of course, Indian children have no lack of superheroes from the West to watch, but Zokkomon gives them not only the first Indiansuper hero but even more powerful, Zokkomon is a young boy "terrorizing" particularly vulnerable adults in a small village with the increasingly the joy of the children of the city.

The scientist whom Kunal calls on granduncle "Magic" uses lasers, optical equipment, costumes, megaphones and all other "magic" tricks for the transformation of Kunal in Zokkomon, an avenging spirit, which is the uncle of the sordid and corrupt Mountebanks and swamis who runs the village.
Children have long been under tyrannical rule and frightened parents abusive teachers, support about this flying spirit, as it fears expressed by the entire village. Talking about strengthening child!

"Magic uncle, he dons a beard and scowl raggedy clothes, mad scientist who uses the boy to wreck revenge against a community prografontai.
Manjari Fadnis plays a beautiful street artist who befriends the abandoned orphan in the big city (which in reality is Mumbai). Good cheer and mischievousness nicely balances the other adult roles related to skullduggery and terror.
If it considers that drawn up by American audiences, that is because it is. Bollywood cinema, through long running times a break, and is intended to preserve a family were hosted in air-conditioned comfort for an entire evening of chai, samosas and film.
