The Avengers

The new rule of Hollywood mythmaking; if it is a life-changing experience, there must be a reference to India. Here’s ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’. After the superheroes ward off the alien invasion and defeats an ambitious Norse God, Loki, the millionaire playboy Tony Stark’s Iron Man gets some fan in India as well, as covered in prime time news.

And if one of those superheroes need to hide from America, he would come to India, especially to poor India, Kolkata, if not Jaipur, as in ‘The Avengers’ where we meet Bruce Banner, the alter ego of the green monster The Incredible Hulk, doing charity work, like the doctor in ‘City of Joy’, where else, in City of Joy, Kolkata, of course.
