Further strengthening the legacy of the Golmaal movie franchise, Golmaal Jr. is an animated series that recreates the comic chaos of the film by pitting two prank gangs against each other. Notorious, mischievous and full of life, these two groups are poles apart. Much like their original counterparts, junior Gopal, Madhav, Laxman, and Lucky are a bunch of pranksters, an expert in creating havoc owing to their never-ending quarrels. As their banters evolve through funny situations, the fantastic five promise to entertain the young audience and ensure they have the time of their lives.

Sonic with the Golmaal Jr. animated series. The concept of Golmaal Jr. had been in place for a while, and I’m very excited about the partnership with Sonic, to bring this high decibel concept and show to life. Each character and their traits are so carefully crafted that I’m confident kids will love the Golmaal Jr PrankGang.
