The movies include Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi & North 24 Kaatham to release this month

5th September 2013, Mumbai:

Ranjit Thakur, the man who pioneered the Digital Revolution in the exhibition space in India with Scrabble Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, has recently launched Krian Media Ltd. as an extension to servicing of cinemas in the digital space globally. Krian Media which also has a film distribution arm aims at not only catering to domestic markets but to markets which are underexposed to Indian cinema, such as USA, Latin America and some European countries, with the ultimate vision of becoming a single window for release of Indian movies worldwide. Krian Media kicked off by distributing a Hollywood release, GI Joe: Retaliation across India this year.

Following their vision, Krian Media has acquired US theatrical distribution rights for two upcoming blockbuster Malayalam films slated to release this month. Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi is a Malayalam road movie directed and co-produced by Sameer Thahir and written by Hashir Muhammad. The film features Dulquer Salmaan (Superstar Mammootty’s son), Dhritiman Chatterjee and Sunny Wayne in the lead roles and will be releasing on 6thSeptember. The other film, North24Kaatham film has been written and directed by debutante director Anil Radhakrishnan Menon. North 24 features Fahadh Faasil in the lead role and is produced by E 4 Entertainment and is releasing on 20thSeptember, 2013.

Raj Malik, Vice President, Film Acquisition & Distribution, Krian Media highlighted “Understanding the popularity and demand of regional cinema across the globe we aim to deliver the best entertainment to our audiences on a global platform. Through our foray into distribution of films, we are servicing cinema in one or more way and adding to its reach. Apart from domestic distribution, our international reach is established in major markets such as of North America as of now.”

The Indian film industry is highly regionalised with the largest language groups supporting major regional industries. In fact regional (especially southern) films bite a huge chunk of the overall Indian film market as they have evolved by leaps and bounds and have been witnessing new trends over time. Although, Bollywood being the biggest film industry in India, the southern film industry is contributing substantially to the market. The U.S. market is concerned it has been a fast-growing and affluent population of Indian Americans: with 2.5 million people. Many distributors of Bollywood and regional Indian films are growingly eager to broaden their global appeal.

About Krian Media:

Krian Media Ltd (KML) services theatres by providing professional audio and visual systems, it is currently servicing over 700 screens in India including clients such as PVR, Cinemax, Inox, Fame and Big Cinemas. The company was formed in April 2012 by Ranjit Thakur, the man who pioneered the Digital Revolution in the exhibition space by aiming at 100% conversion of all cinema screens in the country to 2K Digital Cinema Platform. Our film distribution arm aims at not only catering to domestic markets but to markets which are underexposed to Indian cinema, such as USA, Latin America and some European countries, with the ultimate vision of becoming a single window for release of Indian movies worldwide.

Shootout at SAIFTA: Durban witnesses a double dose of Bollywood

Durban, September 4, 2013: South Africa has had a taste of Indian cinema even before witnessing the mega event where South Africa and Indian talents come together through the first South Africa India Film and Television Awards (SAIFTA). Film makers Apoorva Lakhia and Sanjay Gupta’s landmark films, Shootout at Lokhandwala and the more recent Shootout at Wadala (produced by White Feather Films) were screened at the prestigious at CineCentre theatre at Suncoast as part of a unique skills transfer initiative between SAIFTA, Kwa-Zulu Natal Department of Economic Development and Tourism and Tourism KZN.

Conceptualized to connect experts from Bollywood, undoubtedly one of the biggest film industries of the world, with Mr. Shaffie Mohamed Ali from the Life College Group, Professor Stewart and students from the Durban University of Technology, Mr. Richard Green and students from AFDA , Mr. Nanda Sooben and students from Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design, Mr. Kevin Palium and students from South African Film Institute (Creatives Arts College) and many other film enthusiasts from South Africa, these screenings provided just the right buzz before the upcoming gala. Also in attendance were Chairperson of KZN Film Commission and esteemed jury member of SAIFTA, Mr. Welcome Msomi and the CEO of KZN Film Commission, Ms. Fikiswa Pupuma who addressed the students. With the creator of one of the action hits Sanjay Gupta present at the venue along with important cast and crew members of both films, the screenings were both entertaining and interactive. Mr. A.B. Moosa, CEO of Avalon Group was also there to witness this unique skills transfer.

Each film was followed by a question-and-answer session where the attendees grabbed the opportunity to share thoughts on film making, production and other aspects of Gupta’s brand of cinema as well as Bollywood. The engaging conversations that the screenings spurred only gave SAIFTA a wholesome feel.

The screenings were also attended by dignitaries from Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN), Durban Tourism, Durban Chamber of Commerce who voiced their opinions on growing business ties between the province and the Indian film industry.

Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007) and Shootout at Wadala (2013) were both based on true stories of two gangsters of the Mumbai underworld. While the former starred icon Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt, the latter had actor John Abraham in the lead. Just like their post-release response in India, the films were met with generous applause and hearty cheers. The Shootout screenings are a SAIFTA skills transfer initiative in collaboration with the Kwa-Zulu Natal Department of Economic Development and Tourism.

Bollywood is one of the largest film industries in the world. The Shootout screenings was organised to bring Indian film industry experts to film students and enthusiasts in South Africa so that they can share their expertise and knowledge about film making, production and other aspects of the business of cinema. The students were also addressed by Fikiswa Pupuma, GM, Industry Development, KZN, Mr. Welcome Msomi, Chairperson of the KZN Film Commission.

Another extension of this initiative was the Producers meet and a FAM trip. This was being organized by the DEDT to showcase the scenic and varied landscapes of Kwa-Zulu Natal and how much it has to offer to the Indian film industry from an outdoor location point-of-view. This will also lead to strengthening business ties between the two countries and add to the economic development of both nations. With this initiative, SAIFTA also hopes that students will get a chance to work on live productions from Bollywood.
