LAHORE – It’s time that Pakistani children have their own heroes who live in cities and villages just like them. First fully animated feature film of Pakistan “Teen Bahadur” has been released. The battle between good and evil has been depicted in the movie.
First Pakistani fully animated feature film for children presents their own heroes before the children of Pakistan.
Academy award winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy said that “It’s time that Pakistani children have their own superheroes.”
At the recently-held preview of Teen Bahadur, little warriors of the film were introduced. There is Amna, who has the power of speed, Kamil who has super sharp hearing and Saadi who is amazing at math and possibly at physics.
Together they form an adorable team that fights against the threat they feel is bedeviling society.
These powers exist in all of us, Sharmeen added.
Sharmeen said that many people wanted to watch animation but cannot understand English, it was important to make an Urdu animation for them.
She further added that before Teen Bahadur, our children had only American superheroes to idealize. It’s the time that they would be presented with their own heroes who could talk, walk and dress up like them.
The movie is based on a conventional story of war between good and evil.
The title song of the animated film has been sung by Shiraz Uppal. Teen Bahadur is the story of three brave and intelligent young kids, one girl and two boys who use their superpowers which are not based on fantasy but are very real to change the world. “These powers exist in all of us, we all have super powers, we just don’t know about them,” said the talented director.
Teen Bahadur is not just a movie. “It is a movement…….The message we’re sending with this film is that ‘We shall overcome.’ Like these three kids, we can face the challenges that come our way. You don’t need to be a superhero. You are a superhero,” said Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy with a lot of conviction.
