Produced by National Award winning director Ketan Mehta, Motu Patlu King of Kings is an animated children film and is directed by Suhas D Kadav. Now let’see whether this film charms us.


Motu and Patlu are two best buddies and stay in a small town in India. The town is called as Fufuri Nagariya. They develop friendly relation with a circus lion Guddu (whom they were afraid of before but later realize that he too has a soft heart) who is taking attempts to safeguard his kingdom from the greedy eyes of a poacher. What happens next forms the crux of the plot.

Star Performances

 Vinay Shukla, Sourav Chakraborty have given voices for the characters.


Making a film on children is something adorable. But the irony is that filmmakers refrain from doing such films perhaps due to the reason that they may not become a commercial success. In this regard Motu Patlu King of Kings is a brave attempt.

Lotu and Potlu are known to Indians, thanks to Lotpot comics. This comic has been popular for more than 4 decades. And there are 10 Motu Patlu movies that are exclusively made for television and has been airing for over 4 years in the channel Nickelodeon. Therefore it would not have been a herculean task for the filmmakers to etch the characters since it’s already there. Sukhwinder Singh has given his voice for a soundtrack.

What’s there?

  • The effort to tell a simple kid’s story with the required entertainment quotient is something commendable.
  • The 3d effects are simply superb considering the fact that they are being done an Indian studio.
  • Lyrics of Gulzar and music of Vishal Bharadwaj is commendable.
  • The movie has the right spirit to satisfy you.

What’s not there?

The editing could have been crisper.


The screen adaptation of the comic will satisfy the child in you and you can have a good experience along with your kids in theatres.
