296 kilometers from the glitz and glamour of Bombay and Bollywood lies a small town where lifestyles are modest, excitement is rare, and religious tensions run high. Only one thing in Malegaon has the power to elate, amuse, and unite its residents-film. From hand-painting billboards that adorn every street corner, to emulating their favorite stars' hairstyles, the people of Malegaon have a uniquely fierce fascination with the magic of movies.Former screening house projectionist Shaik Nasir takes this adoration to a new level. Despite zero background in filmmaking and an equally inexperienced cast and crew, he uses local resources and a minimal budget to create his own, parodied versions of popular Hindi blockbusters. The result? Uproarious comedy that has not only become a form of entertainment for its community, but a source of collective pride as well.Documentary filmmaker Faiza Ahmad Khan takes us along as she follows Nasir's latest venture and first foray into Hollywood-Superman. Watch as she chronicles how, armed with just a camera, a computer, and fervent ardor for their craft, Nasir and his friends set out on a hilarious, heartwarming, and above all inspiring mission to realize their celluloid dreams. "Supermen of Malegaon" is a true testament to the spirit of filmmaking!moreless
