New Delhi: The toon duo Motu Patlu are set for a new comic adventure with the TV premiere of "Motu Patlu Aur Khazaane Ki Race", the fifth movie from the franchise slated for Republic Day Jan 26.
The film, which follows the success of its last instalment "Motu Patlu Kung Fu King" in October 2014, will be televised on a popular channel, which is part of Viacom18's kids cluster.
The franchise has grown and regaled children, says Nina Elavia Jaipuria, executive vice president and business head (Kids Cluster), Viacom18.
“The Motu Patlu franchise has grown from strength to strength through providing enhanced experiences and engaging kids across platforms like television, movies, digital assets and now consumer products.
"The dynamic duo Motu Patlu have become an intrinsic part of the daily lives of children. With the fifth movie 'Motu Patlu Aur Khazaane Ki Race', we are sure we will further fortify this circle of trust between Motu Patlu and the children," she said.
The film will show Motu Patlu saving a dog from villain Mr. Chamko's men. Later, they realise that the goons were after a locket around the dog's neck which has a map to a hidden treasure on the Christmas mountain. What follows is a race among the characters to find the treasure.
