New Delhi: Ekans, the most loved Indian superhero from POGO’s homegrown animated show ‘Ekans – Snakes Awake! is set to bring his unique brand of action, fun and drama to the big screen. The kids’ animated movie ‘Ekans – Hero Ek Villain Anek’ will be releasing exclusively in theatres at PVR Cinemas.
This new movie will be screened at 72 PVR properties located across 40 cities in India from Friday, August 19 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Ekans has been keeping the city safe from the villains and their evil plans until now; but a new threat is looming over the city. His arch enemies have joined forces to defeat the super kid. Led by supervillain Kazero, an evil plot is hatched to steal Ekans’ powers and terrorize the city. This cannot happen!
Ekans’ young fans are in for a special treat as Ekans’ sister Kiara and his best friend Chiku transform into a whole new avatar to help Ekans fight off the villains.
