Hanuman Da Damdaar: Clunky and visually unappealing


Cast: Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon, Makarand Deshpande

Director: Ruchi Narain

Aiming for cool but without any secure attempt to authenticate the experience, Writer, director Ruchi Narain tries to garner a Chotta Bheem affect for this ungainly project but it doesn’t work at all.

With voicing from the likes of Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Makarand Desbpande, the film should have had more meat and substance but the writer/director prefers to be vacuous and irreverent in her attempt to make this one pleasing for the under 12 audience. Given the lack of credible story, poor, outdated 2D animation skills, brash, Bollywood channelling, intemperate dialogue and ungainly character studies, this one is unlikely to please even a one year old.
