'Good Morning, Vietnam' on Star Movies

Mumbai, October 17, 2005: In a time of war, one man took on the task of motivating troops by doing what he did best - comedy! Watch the movie that catapulted Robin Williams into the big league, with Good Morning, Vietnam on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on STAR MOVIES. The movie released in 1987 and opened at No. 1 position in 785 cinemas and earned around US $ 123.92 million!

The film begins in 1965, when disc jockey Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams) is assigned to take over the AFR's Saigon radiobroadcasts. In contrast to the dull, by-rote announcers that have preceded him, Cronauer is a bundle of dynamite, playing whatever records tickle his fancy and indulging in wild flights of improvisational fancy.

Cronauer's immediate superior Lt. Hauk, whose own notions of humour are puerile and pathetic, jealously attempts to dethrone Vietnam's favourite rock jock. Fortunately, Cronauer's popularity is such that he enjoys the full protection of the higher-ups. But when Cronauer, after experiencing the horrors of war first-hand, insists upon telling his listeners the truth instead of the official government line, he is instantly replaced by the unfunny Hauk and must struggle to get back on the air.

"The first movie to simultaneously contain Robin Williams and set him free." - San Francisco Examiner

"Good Morning, Vietnam contains by far and away the best work Williams has ever done in a movie." - Chicago Sun-Tribune

"Williams is amazing." - Sun Newspapers of Cleveland

So don't forget to watch Good Morning, Vietnam on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on Star Movies.
