Super-Immigrant!

Dispatches from Kolkata for June 19, 2013.

In India Man of Steel is just another superhero story. All action. 3D glasses and popcorn. But whether you watch in English or dubbed in Hindi Superman remains very American - a symphony of red, white and blue – streaking through the sky defending life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

 

But watching it in a theater filled with excited Indian families, it felt like there was a hidden message inside the movie  – It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super-immigrant!
