Forget Shaktiman or even G One. The Indian Superman and his lady Spiderwoman are a class apart.
This music video is from the 1988 Hindi movie 'Dariya Dil' starring Govinda and Kimi Katkar.
And in the song 'Tu mera Superman', a slimmer Govinda is the Superman of course, but Kimi, although wearing a Spiderwoman costume, is referred to as just a 'lady'. Tune in for the awesome lyrics.
In the video, the superhero couple are seen flying. Spiderwoman also flies, because the makers seem to have given her extra powers; or maybe they sort of forgot that she was 'spider' and not superwoman. But what is striking is how they fly- vertically and horizontally, sticking to a normalcy defying 90 or 180 degree angle always. (Imagine a rocket launch!)
The couple's passion for dance is simply unmissable- they dance on the clouds, on the grounds, while flying and while fighting goons. They also join a group of mere mortals and shake a leg with them. Because, why remain anonymous. We wonder whether Tony Stark aka Iron Man got inspired by our heroes.
The choreographer of the video also made sure that the couple and their steps resembled where Superman hails from- totally from out of the world.
Before you even think of dismissing the video, here is a trivia. The video has got some odd 9,878,013 views on YouTube.
