Sivakarthikeyan’s Hero copies Hollywood’s Batman?

Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming film Hero, directed by PS Mithran, is gearing up to hit the screens on December 20. It looks like the makers of Hero are following Batman makers in promotion.

Recently, celebrating the Dark Knight’s 80 years, DC and Warner Bros lit up the skies and edifices of skyscrapers and landmarks around the world with the glow of the distinctive Bat silhouette.

In the same style, the ‘Hero’ symbol has been projected on a Mount Road building and S2 Cinemas in the city. The makers of Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming film, Hero, claim to have come up with a game that is unlike anything we have seen before. Named Play Hero, it is an Augmented Reality (AR) application.

Explaining how the game works, the founder and CEO of game development company Djinn Solutions, Mohit Mehra says, “It’s a treasure hunt type of game, made with top-of-the-class AR, which requires the player to go out and collect the Hero badges placed across the State.

The in-built navigation system will help the players find these badges. Since it’s AR, the logo badges are placed in real environments. Once a badge is collected, players will have to wait for two hours to collect another from the same location.”

Recently, KJR Studios took to their Twitter page to confirm that all the legal and financial tussle with TSR Films regarding ‘Hero’ release has been sorted out so the film is all set to release on December 20.  

“All issues sorted with TSR Films regarding #Hero release. As per plan, we are going to #AdchiThookify December 20. Top gear la post production poikitu iruku. Wait for the album, trailer, game & other promotions we have planned! @Siva_Kartikeyan @Psmithran @kalyanipriyan”, tweeted KJR Studios.
