Sometimes, it feels like the purpose of the internet is to fill the void for people with too much time on their hands. An example of this would be YouTube user Sumit Purohit, who spends his time making mashups of movie trailers on his YouTube channel.
His latest offering is a creative mashup of two action flicks. Bollywood meets Hollywood in this mashup of Mukkabaaz and Thor Ragnarok. It seems like an odd pairing to combine an Indian film about boxing with one of Marvel’s superhero flicks, but as you can see in the video above, it all works out strangely well.
The creative mind behind this trailer took the audio from the Anurag Kashyap film and combined it with appropriately edited scenes from Thor Ragnarok. The masterful editing ensures that the audio and visuals sync perfectly, to an extent where it gets confusing which movie the trailer is ultimately for. Is it the story of a small-town boxer from India with big dreams and hurdles, or a superhero caught in a gladiatorial contest, trying to save his home world?
