Sony Le Plex HD brings Hollywood trivia on 'It's 9 O' Talk'

MUMBAI: Great conversations start with great topics. Great topics come out of common interests. Common interests include one’s undying love for great movies. Indeed, movies are great conversation starters. These conversations can often unravel some interesting, unknown facts that are common across a diverse set of films – like profession of the characters or their graduation school or scenes shot at the same location or actors having the same name - factors that are random but unique. Sony Le PLEX HD is all set to bring out these interesting binding themes with a brand new slot called ‘It’s 9 O’ Talk’ starting Monday, 14 November, 2016.

Airing once a month, Monday-Friday at 9 PM, the channel will showcase five different movies in ‘It’s 9 O’ Talk’, that are connected on a string through one distinct theme. Creating a premium conversational platform for quality cinema lovers, Sony Le PLEX HD has introduced an innovative way to add to the enthusiasm of movie buffs. Reaching out to the movie lovers, anchor Neha Sareen will share some interesting facts around these themes before the airing of each movie. The first theme on the show is called ‘Dollars in the Diapers’, which connects 5 movies - The People vs. Larry Flynt, Mortdecai, After Earth, Prisoners and Still Alice – with a common theme of actors born with a silver spoon like Edward Norton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jaden Smith, Jake Gyllenhaal and Kristen Stewart.

The other interesting themes include ‘Bling on the Ring’ - Biggest and the Best celebrity engagement rings, ‘The AD-vantage Actors’- actors who started their acting careers with ads and ‘And The Award Doesn’t Go To’- actors you won’t believe haven’t won an Oscar! to name a few.

Sony Pictures Networks India EVP and Business Head, English Cluster, Saurabh Yagnik said: “With the tagline ‘Where You Belong’, we created a community that brought together different or uncommon people through their common love for films. Listicles fit in with that idea of finding the common in the uncommon. It is a very popular format to drive online conversations amongst communities. This unconventional programing initiative will be a delight for movie lovers as it gives them reasons to have interesting conversations through the week. The themes focus on finding a unique, unexpected and unusual connection between various films, which is supplemented with interesting information – essentially, fun trivia for movie lovers to discuss with their loved ones.”

Sony Le PLEX HD is the premium Hollywood movie channel caters to avid English movie lovers who enjoy watching critically acclaimed Hollywood cinema.
