Ultra Music launches the music of 'Chor Mandli - The Gang'- India's first ever Direct-to-DVD feature film

Mumbai, November 2005: The music of India's first ever Direct-to-DVD feature film, 'Chor Mandli -The Gang', was launched by Mr. Sushil Kumar Agrawal, Managing Director & CEO - Ultra Group of Companies. Udit Narayan, one of the lead singers of the album, Nirmal B. Pawaar, music director, and Kumaar, lyricist, unveiled the foot tapping music of the film.

Presented by Ultra Distributors Pvt. Ltd., part of Ultra Group of Companies and veterans in the field of video entertainment for the last twenty years, Chor Mandli, is all set to make its mark in the history of Indian cinema as it is India's first-ever Direct-to-DVD feature film.The audio cassettes and CDs of Chor Mandli are available across all leading music stores. The cassettes are priced at Rs 40 /- and the CDs cost Rs 99/-.

The six main protagonists of the film include Shweta Keswani, Mukul Dev, Amit Mistry, Razzak Khan, Kunal Tarve and Buta Singh.

Composed by Nirmal B. Pawar, the lyrics have been penned by Kumaar. The album features 'Abhi nahi jaana …' a soulful duet by Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghosal followed by a fast paced gang song 'Jackpot....' which has voices of Shaan, Nirmal Pawaar and Riddhi. 'Pyaar ne tere .. ' is another lovely duet by Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghosal as also a solo, 'Meri Zindagi mein tum …' by Shaan. Sunidhi Chauhan in her inimitable style conveys zest and sensuality in the racy item number song 'Jugnu jugnu … ' which has been picturized on the heroine Shweta Keswani.

Speaking at the music launch, Mr. Sushilkumar Agrawal, MD & CEO, Ultra Group of Companies, said, "Ultra for years has been synonymous with video publishing, however, we have now forayed into production and distribution in a big way. Our feature film, Chor Mandli - the Gang, will be the first-ever feature film to be premiered on VCD / DVD. This small budget comic thriller is sure to enthrall the audience and will be enjoyed by one and all. Nirmal Pawar has done a marvelous job on the music of the film. The album features a mix of melodious and catchy numbers sung by among others Udit Narayan, Shaan, Shreya Ghosal and Sunidhi Chauhan."

Six different characters, six different dreams, one common aim, this forms the crux of the film, Chor Mandli - The Gang. This comic thriller, directed by Sanjay B. Khanna, is based on a crook who has hatched a foolproof plan to break into a vault loaded with insurmountable riches, but he needs a credible accomplice to do the needful. This, is where the story takes a turn for the incongruous; the crook gets in touch with his 'beer bar dancer' girlfriend Shweta Keswani to find a suitable suite. She in turn gets in touch with several people who all have their own devious plans. Thus the contenders for the riches are plenty but the location unknown. How these barney bunch of people crack the situation forms the crux of the film.
