Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

Wrongly positioned as a superhero adventure, Zokkomon is in fact a simplistic tale of child empowerment. The message of the film is noble, but the script is predictable and silly, and seems to regard its potentially young audience as stupid. The special effects are embarrassingly tacky, and the songs simply drag the film on pointlessly.Missing any fun or visual inventiveness even, Zokkomon is a dull film that’s difficult to endure.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Zokkomon. Like most children’s films made in India, this one too is confused and disheartening.

ZOKKOMON is like any superhero film, but at the same time, it’s not. Like most superhero films, the superhero here keeps his identity concealed by sporting a mask and wearing a costume. But there’s a difference. He’s not blessed with super powers, yet flies, evaporates into thin air and plays every possible trick that a magician would. In a nutshell, this one’s adventurous and fun in parts, not in toto. However, it’s much, much better than the kiddie films the Hindi film industry has churned out in the recent past. On the whole, ZOKKOMON is for the kids mainly.

In an industry which throws up such an abysmal record when it comes to producing viable children’s films, any attempt that can slightly hold your interest is more than welcome. And that is where Zokkomon scores. It tells a story that transposes the traditional fight of good over evil onto a kid’s battleground and creates a desi superhero that isn’t all kitsch alone. Kunal’s transformation into the hooded, heavy-voiced, fire-eyed flying vigilante is funky and attention-grabbing for the young imagination. The performances too are warm, with Darsheel adding spontaneity and a charming vulnerability to the lonely superhero act.An interesting watch for kids, Zokkomon may be the beginning of a better branch of tween films.

But as any veteran chef knows the right ingredients and recipes do not always transform into a perfect dish. Zokkomon is a blend of ‘correct’ formulas which fail to come together as a cohesive whole.But a lackluster script and an overdose of clichéd situations turn this film into one more ‘preachy affair’. Not something we expected from Walt Disney’s first Hindi venture. Darsheel fans might just want to see this film. But be prepared to get disappointed. The rest are better off giving it a miss.

Children’s films are in a pretty abysmal state in our country and I’m afraid that Zokkomon, the new Disney superhero movie, has lowered the bar even further.The film is derivative, relentlessly foolish and staggeringly boring. Zokkomon is yet another Indian kiddie flick in which the creators believe that children equal low IQ.So, pretty much anything goes and debutant director Satyajit Bhatkal doesn’t even attempt to stay true to the film’s own logic.Poor Darsheel is made to wear a mask with weirdly glowing eyes and lip-gloss. I’m going with one and a half star.
