News Post: Akshay Kumar To Voice Optimus Prime For The Hindi Dub Of Dark Of The Moon
Oh yes it is, just like Tessho Genda for the Japanese market & now we have a renown Bollywood actor doing it for the Indian sub-continent.
No bad Nibmratchet
....because the U.S. isn't the only country in the world?
As Rizuan says... This is a HUGE news to the Indian Movie Fans. TFW2005 covers TF news from around the world. Google "Akshay Kumar", he is as famous as any Hollywood actor.
Thanks for the back-up Riz!
That's not the point. Just because the majority are American (which I'm not sure about) doesn't mean it should exclude the minorities.
You're making us all look bad.
YouTube - I WAS FROZEN TODAY‏
I'm curious, if this chap has been brought on for DotM, how did his predecessor play Prime? And more importantly, how does he intend to play Prime?
You seem like a nice fellow, so, as a friendly suggestion, please take the attitude you have displayed so far in regards to this news and kindly drop it down a well. If you're not interested or don't have anything relevant to bring to the discussion; just leave it be.
I for one am interested exactly how each of these characters sounds, their voices are what lends them a great deal of their personality and I am wondering how they translate the dialogue (literally or conceptually).
I've seen the previous Hindi Dubs. But, I'm not sure they are official. The previous dubs are weak. very weak. I can only bear the first minute or so. I'm sure this one will turnout ok. But I'm sticking with the original.
he looks like matt lablac off of freinds
always love watching the dubs! i'm always curious how the cornerstones of each voice are emulated in different languages
That should be interesting! Amitabh Bachchan would have made a much better Optimus Prime in my opinion!
Lots of my friends say that. You do have a very very good point. But he is now kind of overused for dubbing I guess. Akshay will make a fresh start... hopefully. I'm a fan of Akshay's comedy movies... those are effing hilarious.
Amitabh Bachchan would make a suitable Sentinel Prime being a veteran actor & all.
We are yet to hear the full cast. What if he IS Sentinel Prime?
I guess some one else did the voice before him? Interesting.
I love Bollywood movies, so this is a nice surprise!
I think Hera Pheri is my favorite Akshay Kumar movie. There are so many that are hilarious that its hard to keep track! Namastey London is also pretty good! Tees Maar Khan was horrible except for Sheila Ki Jawani
The Big B as Sentinel Prime would be epic!
^Oh yeah! Definitely!
?Hmm..whattabout the Villains? Megs?
Any names...not familiar with Bollywood villain character actors..
Kamalhassan?! He's got amazing range and skill..
For some reason I find this hard to believe.
Since I read this, it occurred to me that it would be nice to see a bit more diversity in the cast of any future TF movies/tv series.
And then I remembered TF:Animated. Did that ever get broadcast in India?
If so, I wonder how it did ratings-wise compared to previous tf series?
What I really want to know is when the Esperanto dub comes out.
Imagine Optimus voiced by William Shatner!
