Drona - The Indian Superman
The Abhishek Bachchan starrer, Drona is gonna hit the screens next week.
Wikipedia calls it "as a Harry Potter meets Indiana Jones movie, but with an original story". But I will call it "Superman in the Matrix".
Here's excerpt of the story:
"Rooted in the vibrant tapestry of Indian mythology, Drona is the compelling modern tale of one man's spectacular voyage through the labyrinths of mystic myths and legendary legacies. Of a journey that will force him to face his fears and make him the hero he was born to become. From the times, when time itself was a newborn baby, the universe has kept one secret carefully camouflaged within its folds. A secret, which if unraveled, could unlock the destruction of mankind and the entire cosmos. Today, only one man can protect the universe's precious secret and thus, save the human race from absolute annihilation."
Sounds interesting. After being fed up with the super-human Krissh and the romantic future candyfloss Love Story : 2050, Drona might be a change to the Bollywood Super Humans!!
And this time, they are coming out with a 32-page comic book which serves as the prelude to the movie. Hope some good soul will upload it somewhere. If anyone does that, I will surely put it up here. Subscribe to my feed and get hold of it.
Here's an interview with the director Goldie Behl. Check out his plans for the future.
