Bharat is married to Nisha a schoolteacher, loving and caring but doubting wife concerned more about Bharat’s promotion from cashier to manager at the bank than his flying tricks at the ‘Ramleela’. The small and happy family lives with a forced upon guest Amita, a young, beautiful girl who works at a call center, forgets her ID at home and likes to hitch a ride with Bharat on his scooter when he is not busy dropping his wife at school. Did I forget to mention, Bharat drives a Scooter, the sidekick of this story. Bharat wants to graduate from his role as ‘Hanuman’ to ‘Lord Ram’ someday which is being portrayed by Sattu Thripati, younger brother of MLA Manku Thripati, both having individual problems with him. Sattu, a bad actor is always unhappy that ‘Hanuman’ steals the show with his performance and Manku the MLA is unhappy over Bharat’s refusal to let out his extra room to campaigning for his re-election. Adding Sugar on Spice is the fact that Bharat’s father ShivNarayan befriends the opposing candidate Mohanlal and lets out the room to him for his campaign. One night Hawaldar Parshuram Khushwaah comes knocking on Bharat’s door informing him about the theft of a Table-fan from his household. Khushwaa orders Bharat to come at the small court where local panwala Bacchu Gulkand, will appear as witness to confess about skilled thief Chunnu Farishta’s, actual confession about stealing the fan from his house much to Bharat’s reluctance. At the court, firstly the witness fails to turn up, later the judge takes an unduly holiday and Bharat has to appoint a lawyer suggested to him by Chunnu recommended by Khushwaa. Somehow, Bharat manages to bribe his way from the cops to the criminals, from the witness to the lawyer and finally the judge to get his fan back. Now the real act begins for Bharat here onwards, the ordinary fan of everyday usage meant at providing a cool breeze on hot days, turns his life into a metaphorical remark aimed at the system by making this part time cahier slash hanuman into the front page national news heard from lane to lane filled with thieves. How? Let’s Find Out India.

Ministry of Information & Broadcasting Issued Notices to Combat piracy of Films & Music

Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has Issued Notices to Combat piracy of Films & Music Mumbai, December 20, 2011: Let’s not indulge in Piracy: “Its a crime” will be soon imbibed as a culture in the minds of youth. The latest action taken by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting of issuing notices will go long way in building culture of respecting Intellectual Property informs Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Secretary General, FICCI. As per a notice issued by Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB), Multiplex Owners shall now have to screen anti-piracy clip to educate consumers about the ill effects of piracy. The clippings have been prepared by FICCI, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry. The Ministry has issued such notices under section 12(4) of the Cinematographic Act, upon the request made by FICCI, as per which the Multiplex Owners are obliged to screen the videos, contravention of which may have implications of the license issued to Multiplex Owners. During a recent conference held by FICCI-IPR Division in Mumbai under the aegis of “FICCI-MHRD-Anti-Piracy Coordination Cell”, it was highlighted that Cineplexes are majorly used as a platform for piracy. The unscrupulous elements often indulge themselves in the act of piracy by camcording/recording the films through various technological means in Cineplexes while these are being shown. Later such films find their way on internet and flood the market through pirated CDs. As piracy is not only affecting the film producers but the government is also a party to the losses in form of taxes slipping out of their hands. The act of Piracy is done through Multiplexes, CD, internet websites etc. It has been seen in the past that major source of Piracy is through multiplexes. As per the latest statistical data of 2010 given by India Entertainment Media Outlook 2011[1], the loss that piracy has caused to entertainment industry is INR 5.2 billion. Piracy is not a new word in the dictionary of Crime. The Indian entertainment industry started getting affected with it from the time, when the movie KALA PATHER (1979) hit the Indian Cinemas. Time and again various steps have been taken by the Government and the industry, however till date there was no conclusive step. One Pirated copy of the film recording uploaded on the web leads to huge amount of loss for the Producer, and others employed in the Business of Film making. At times producers are not even in the position to recover their investment. The government losses the revenue (taxes) which it would have charged on the profits of the Producer. The initiative has been well received by Industry. “FICCI on behalf of its members appreciates the prompt and effective action of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in issuing such notice”. This serves as one of the milestones achieved by FICCI–MHRD-Anti Piracy Coordination cell in the realm of combating the issue of piracy MEDIA DIVISION Taresh Arora Media Relations Officer FICCI Industry’s Voice for Policy Change Federation House, Tansen Marg, New Delhi 110 001

Heartbreaker- a very original romantic comedy soon to hit the screens.

HEARTBREAKER PRODUCTION NOTES Few romantic comedies in the last decade have even come close to the gates of the rom-com hall of fame, let alone entered them. HEARTBREAKER has all the elements and more to become an all-time classic in its genre: originality, wit and above all, breath-taking romance. Taking a staggering 1.7 million admissions in its French opening weekend, the film marks director Pascal Chaumeil’s feature debut and stars the gorgeous paring of Vanessa Paradis and Romain Duris. Meet Alex (Duris). He’s charming, funny, effortlessly cool, and most importantly, irresistible to women. Alex offers a professional service; to break up relationships. In just a few weeks, for a fee equivalent to his reputation, he promises to transform any husband, fiancé or boyfriend into an ex. Hideouts, phone-tapping, fake identities, a devastating smile, anything goes when it comes to fulfilling his contract. Meet Juliette (Paradis). She’s a young, beautiful, free-spirited and independent heiress, with a passion for shopping, fine wine, and a word-perfect knowledge of Dirty Dancing. In ten days she’s due to marry the man of he dreams (Andrew Lincoln), much to her father’s disapproval. When Alex is hired to break up this seemingly perfect couple he is thrown into a actionfilled race against time, taking him through the sun-drenched streets of Paris to the fast cars and high fashion of Monaco, in his own hilarious seduction “mission impossible” that risks him being caught by his ruthless personal creditors, angry exes, and Juliette herself. But worst of all, will he discover to his own cost that when it comes to love, the perfect plan doesn’t exist?
