If You Like Hanuman, Here Are 8 Must-Watch Indian Superhero Movies on OTT
HanuMan, the first Telugu superhero film, directed by Prasanth Varma, has surely created an impact in the film industry. Teja Sajja, who plays the male lead, embarks on a trademark heroic mission after receiving Lord Hanuman's skills. With worldbuilding and storytelling reminiscent of Marvel or DC films, the HanuMan franchise aspires to extend to a hero universe as well! While this is a long-term goal, there is a noticeable lack of superhero films in Indian cinema.
