The feelings that a boy has for a mother is something that often takes audiences to a warm place. 8-year-old Indian boy Omi has a similar role. When his mother is taken ill, he goes to live with his uncle in Canada. The boy always carries a card of a superhero named P. And he always wishes for P to save him from all his troubles. He even thinks that the superhero is somewhere in Canada, and begins to look for him. Although it borrows from the world and perspective of children, is not just a simple, kind fairy tale. Director Gaurav Seth quietly approaches the lives of various ethnic groups, such as Indians and blacks, who immigrated to Canada. The strangeness and warmth of Western society, seen through the eyes of Omi, is meticulously represented by the relationships of the characters. The friendship between Omi and Captain Roland in particular transcends age and race to form a warm bond. But this film does not completely solve the conflicts between East and West. Omi´s role model, a ´Western´ superhero, can be seen as a substitute for his real dad. And it should also be noted that Captain Roland, who replaces the superhero, is also Caucasian. This sort of fundamental problem can be viewed apart from the evaluation of the finished product. But unfortunately it is a problem often seen in this kind of movie. Western ideologies sometimes unconsciously permeate through films or fairy tales for children. Watching that process will provide an interesting way to understand .
