Zee readies two big screen films

MUMBAI: After a hiatus of almost year and half, Zee Telefilms is back in the Friday race with Khosla ka Ghosla and Dollar Aunty. The Subhash Chandra promoted Zee Telefilms had joined the big screen bandwagon with the Sunny Deol- Amisha Patel starrer Gadar- Ek Prem Katha in 2001.

Although Gadar... was labeled a blockbuster hit and Zee notched up a good profit for the year ended March 2002, the company is playing safe and following the market trend this time. All upcoming releases are readied with modest budgets, unlike the Gadar... extravaganza.

While Khosla Ka Ghosla is schedule to release in December and Dollar Aunty will roll out in the theatres in about four months time. An off-beat bilingual (Hindi and English) film Khosla Ka Ghosla is also being aimed for a release abroad in a festival competition circuit. A directorial venture of Dibakar Banerjee, the small-budget project stars Boman Irani and Tara Sharma. The second release, Dollar Aunty is in the last stages of production.

That apart, the company has entered the distribution segment too. It has bought the all India distribution rights of Kagaar which after being postponed a number of times, is finally scheduled to release on 30 October. Starring debutante Amitabh Dayal along side noted actors Nandita Das and Om Puri, Kagaar is the story of a cop, an encounter specialist to be precise.

Written by Saransh, Arth and Prahar fame writer Sujeet Sen, the movie tell a story of two friends who come from a remote village. One becomes a police officer and the other one becomes an underworld don. Needless to say Dayal portrays the police officer; Das plays the role of his wife and Om Puri that of a senior cop. The movie is directed by Excuse me fame N Chandra, who is also working on a feature film on the life of India's former prime minister Indira Gandhi.
