Percept Picture Co. to release three movies in four months

MUMBAI: Percept Picture Company is gearing up to release three movies in the next four months. The collective budget for the three movies is Rs 250 million.

India's first 2D animation movie Hanuman will be ready for a Dussera release in October. Percept IMC joint managing director Shailendra Singh informs that the release of the 90-minute movie will be backed by a huge marketing push. "We are planning to push the movie heavily through merchandising as a huge opportunity lies here. Also the music release of the movie will be done in one of the grounds in front of the general public."

Hanuman is produced by Percept Picture Company in association with Silvertoons and has been created by animation wiz V G Samant.

Before releasing Hanuman, Percept will be releasing two other movies -- Pyar Mein Twist and Sacred Evil.

Pyar Mein Twist, starring Dimple Kapadia and Rishi Kapoor, is slated to release on 5 August and Sacred Evil, which has been directed by a French unit and has been shot in Kolkatta will be released globally in September.

Two other movies that the company has on the floors are Home Delivery and Priyadarshan's Maalamaal Weekly. The production work for these movies has already commenced.

Percept Picture Company is in talks with the producers of the Hollywood flick Tree of Life for a joint-production venture. However, at this point in time, the deal has not been signed between the two. The movie will be directed by Terence Malik and will star Mel Gibson and Colin Farrell.

Singh says, "We are in talks with them, but as of now, the deal has not been signed between us. Their project is finalised but our partnership is not. There is no formalisation on the film until things are put on paper."

Refuting a report carried recently by an afternooner, Singh says, "The deal is very crucial and there are big names attached to the movie and hence it is unfair to report names like Michael Douglas as a part of the cast without any basis."
