Who’s cooler, Mahatma Gandhi or an ordinary superhero? It’s difficult to know for two rascally boys who must first learn an important lesson: real strength doesn’t come from violence, but from truth and good deeds.

Boom! Bam! Everyone take cover! Here are Mintoo and Mitra, two bona fide troublemakers. Absolutely bewitched by the temptations of modern childhood, they skip school to go play at the arcade machines, steal money from religious altars, and trick and lie to get what they want. One can only imagine what will become of these two. Until a mishap at the barber’s gives the story an unexpected twist, which forces Mintoo – wearing glasses and sporting a freshly shaved head – to take the great Gandhi as his role model. A charming, action-packed comedy that appeals to the heart and the conscience. The film is the recipient of numerous awards in its home country.
