Iqbal & The Secret Recipe

The IQBAL series is a trilogy of family films based on books written by Manu Sareen, following the adventures of Iqbal Farooq.

The 13-year-old Iqbal is a charming, imaginative and fun boy, which – according to his father – is not enough if one is to succeed in the world. But when Iqbal, his little brother Tariq, and their friend Sille accidentally blow up their school, the father is the slightest of his problems.

The two crooks, Easelman and The Swine, want to get hold of the randomly homebrewed explosive and blow up Tivoli to build the biggest parking facility in Scandinavia. To blackmail the kids for the recipe, the two crooks kidnap the adorable little brother Dindua (6 years). The hunt to free Dindua and save Tivoli starts – and this requires cooperation, courage and a lot of imaginative ideas, which Iqbal is an expert in delivering.
