"Dhotiwala" Spiderman – For Indian culture

May 11th, 2007

indianspidermanWe talk about modern India and modern “soch-vichar”.  We go to cinemas to watch English movies and then we show-off among our friends that we know everything about Hollywood and Western culture. We talk, walk and eat like them and even copy their food; Italian, continental, burger, pizza, hotdog, pasta and god knows what more. We celebrate all festivals whether it belongs to our culture or not, but just b’coz it is celebrated in western countries we do it (Valentine day). We colour and style our hair, want to wear branded clothes and throw some western attitude at others. We make sure that our child speaks fluent English at the age of 3, infact the first word of the baby should be in English. Otherwise “naak kat jati hai

What were these people thinking when they announced “Spiderman India” with a typical Indian name “Pavitr Prabhakar, not Peter Parker” and all the other characters has also been rename to Indian names. Spider-man in “Mumbai,” don’t they know Mumbai is a metropolitan city and people here know English very well.

I mean I don’t get this, why we want a Spider-man in Indian clothes (Dhoti) and Indian name. We already have a super hero spider-man (Hrithik Roshan). Even Hrithik wore a black leather trousers and sexy mask in the movie. Why on earth they have to create a stupid Indian spider-man. Since my childhood I have been watching English Spider-man all my life and understand what he says.

The re-invented Spider-Man is a joint project between Marvel Comics and Gotham Entertainment Group, which holds the license in India.
“We feel this is one of the most exciting and unique projects in comic history,” said Gotham Entertainment Group chief executive Sharad Devarajan.

Ok if you want to create a character in “Dhoti” then reinvent my so cute and so handsome “Chacha Chaudhary & Sabu” I don’t mind seeing him in “Dhoti”. I loved him, still remember reading his comics 24/7.

Well, I don’t think I’ll watch this Dhoti Spider-man at all.
