If Batman was from Chennai was Put Chutney's passport to YouTube success. We saw the not-so-buffed caped crusader being bullied by his father and meeting a prospective bride, Catwoman wearing a bindi.
The group sure believes in sticking with the formula, a lot like Hollywood. Their next video is a spoof on the world-saving team of superheroes, titled 'What if Avengers were from South India'. Put Chutney is a YouTube channel of Culture Machine.
Since we don't get attacked by aliens or sentient robots, the superheroes are immensely 'in-employable'. But worry not, there is S.H.I.E.L.D to the rescue -- The Super Hero Immediate Employment Liaison Department.
Its eye patch-wearing director, Fury Jaganath (Tamil actor Manobala), ensures his Thor/Giri Thor, Captain America, Lokesh/Loki, Hulk/Pachaippa, Karuppai/Black Widow, Iron Man/Andhoni Ithyanath Starch and Hawkeye/Kakai always have a job at hand.
Shaadi, party, washing clothes or breaking coconuts -- they take contracts for everything. The rate is Rs 300 for three hours and double the price on Sundays. When not dispensing their services to happy customers, Thor uses his hammer to stick nails in the wall to hang calendars, Hulk washes and grinds, and Black Widow is asked to return home by 8 and not to forget her dupatta.
Here's the real deal...
And Iron Man, you better watch out, there is a big magnet ahead.
The only similarity between Avengers and this video? Even Put Chutey doesn't know what to do with their Hawkeye/Kakai!
