India’s First ‘Ghost Buster’ Horror Comedy Set to Enthrall Audiences

28th February, 2014, Mumbai:

Have you ever actually seen a Ghost …..

Have you been brave enough to talk to a Ghost …..

Have you even been the hero to really catch a Ghost …..

You can now experience all this & more on the new Horror Comedy show, Pritam, Pyaare Aur Woh, which promises to be a rib-tickling delight along with a few spooks & scares, and debuts on SAB TV at 7:30pm on Monday, March 3, 2014.

In a completely new treatment to the subject of Ghosts, something that has captivated the psyche for generations across the country, India’s first ‘Ghost Buster’ show, revolves around two endearing brothers Pritam, played by Siddharth Sagar and Pyaare, portrayed by Prasad Barve, who accidentally and unknowingly, get famous, solving ghost buster cases.

Speaking about Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh, Mr. Anooj Kapoor, Senior EVP and Business Head, SAB TV, says, “We have made Horror Comedy before & it had been very successful for us. There is a strong recall for this genre and hence we decided to bring this genre back on air in an all new & contemporary treatment. Pritam & Pyaare are all set to be India’s favorite Ghost Busters!”

In the show, Pritam & Pyaare, solve a ghost buster case accidentally, at the first instance and earn appreciation for it. Taking that seriously, they then setup a laboratory where they research & create useless yet unique gadgets to solve cases involving ghosts, which though are actually of no use in trapping ghosts. However, incidents happen accidentally and the cases get solved even when their gadgets fail or are forgotten at home, which only get Pritam and Pyaare to think that this has happened because of them & their favorite gadgets!

Pritam & Pyaare, who often have arguments with each other in their popular “tit-for-tat” fight routine, are supported by Tiku Talsania who plays the character of Tiku, a rich business man who is married to Gogi, their young pretty sister. Played by Parineeta Bothakur, Gogi loves her brothers and on her request Tiku always forgives Pritam & Pyaare, and does not throw them out of the house, even though he hates them from the bottom of his heart, for putting him into trouble every time with their ghost busting cases.

Tiku has a beautiful, charming and young female secretary Mary, played by Tapasya, who has instructions to always be with Pritam and Pyaare, to keep an eye on them & avoid blunders. On the other hand, both Pritam and Pyaare keep trying their luck to impress Mary, who smartly gets her work done, while keeping them at bay. Tiku has to contend with his mother-in-law Nimmi Gulati, portrayed by Daljeet Soundh, who lives in the same household & is given to hallucinations, which Tiku just bears out of respect for an elderly woman.

The show features Rajesh Kumar as the vampire ‘Dara Koyla’, India’s first tall, lean, aristocratic- looking ghost, who speaks with immaculate dignity. Immaculately styled in black, with a magnificent flowing black & black cape, Dara is a vampire, can morph into a bat at will and also has the ability to hypnotize his victims. He is afraid of sunlight, sleeps in his coffin through the day to awaken only once the sun sets. He is aided and helped in his gothic mansion by Dumroo, the hunchback, played by Sukesh Anand and Hatuba, the monster, portrayed by Madan.

Tune in to watch Pritam & Pyaare, send a chill down your spine, while making you roll with laughter in India’s first ‘ghost buster’ horror-comedy, Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh, starting from 03rd March, 2014; Monday to Friday at 7.30 pm only on SAB TV.

Muscular pain can hamper one’s comfort and happiness and Iodex UltraGel, powered by diclofenac provides effective relief from this pain. The brand has signed up Olympic medallist badminton player Saina Nehwal as the new brand ambassador for Iodex UltraGel, and in the new TVC, she shares how it brings a true smile on her face.

Picture this… A badminton player at an international tournament is fighting severe muscular pain to stand strong on the ground, her smashes making the country proud as she wins the match and stands victorious. But instead of tasting her victory, she sits back to bury her face in a towel, trying to hide her pain. When she lifts her face, it is covered by a mask with a huge smile as she carries on interacting with the media and her fans. The smiling mask continues to hide her pain from the world.

But Saina decides to unmask herself by curing the pain and reaches into her kit bag. Iodex UltraGel comes to her rescue as the voice-over describes that Diclofenac in Iodex UltraGel is absorbed 90% faster through the skin as compared to the most prescribed pain gel. It then reduces internal inflammation in the muscles, providing effective relief from pain.

The TVC ends with Saina accompanied by hundreds of women throwing away their mask and saying “Iodex UltraGel apnao, dil se muskurao” (Try Iodex UltraGel and smile whole-heartedly).

Insight

People often experience severe muscular pain in their day-to-day lives but choose to hide it from their loved ones behind a smile. Iodex UltraGel lets you take this mask off by reducing the internal inflammation of the muscles and providing effective relief from pain.

Lab tests have now proven that UltraGel’s diclofenac has a 90% higher speed of penetration# through the skin than the leading prescribed* pain gel.

Talking about the new campaign, Amit Nandwani, ECD- LeoBurnett said, “Women putting up a brave face in day-to-day life to hide pain is a human truth that connects with everyone. Iodex Ultra Gel, with its unique formulation, aspires to put an end to their silent suffering. We needed to drive home the point in an emotional, yet hard hitting manner. I think the device of a smiling mask does it really well as it’s not just visually stark and cut through, but also makes for a refreshing piece of communication in the category.”

Campaign details:

· Creative Agency: Leo Burnett, New Delhi

· Creative Team: Amit Nandwani (ECD), Kaushik Datta (CD), Ajitesh Verma (Copywriter), Mukul Upadhyay (Copywriter)

Crime Patrol to depict the case of love over internet

After bringing some heart wrenching cases on Sony TV, Crime Patrol is ready to show one more episode which brings an aspect with the impact of social networking websites on the young minds and how virtual realities have become a mindless obsession amongst the youths. The episode takes a look at this problem through the instance of 17-year old Harshita Amre from Kolhapur who befriended Feroz Shaikh (21) through a popular social networking site and fell in love with him without meeting him. The virtual relationship between the two, continued for a couple of months and one fine day Harshita ran away from her home to be with Feroz at Pune. Feroz received Harshita at the station and took her to his friend Arun’s room in a dingy chawl. When Harshita thwarted Feroz’s advances to get physical with her, citing their not being married as the reason, Firoz bought a ‘mangalsutra’ and tied it around Harshita’s neck. Harshita was so enamored with the entire situation that she did not realize that Feroz was a liar and had taken the advantage of her innocence. When she insisted upon meeting Feroz’s parents he agreed to take her to meet his parents.

The next day Feroz took Harshita to Pune railway station and handed over her the ticket of her hometown Kolhapur instead and told her that she should go back to her parents. A shattered Harshita was standing at the platform when a lady constable from the railway police saw her crying and asked her the reason for it. She mustered up courage and narrated her plight to the constable. The only thing she remembered was that it was a room whose main door was painted in vibrant red color.

Will police be able to find out Feroz with such a little information?

Crime Patrol to narrate the heart- wrenching story of Haryana

Tonight Crime Patrol’s episode throws a light at the age-old mindset of the Indian society (Haryana in particular) where women are still treated as the second fiddle to their male counterparts. The episode takes this relook through the agonizing life of 17-year old Smriti who is forcibly married to a man who is 33 years older to her.

Smriti’s marriage was in fact an arrangement under the popular ‘atta-satta’ tradition prevalent in Northern India where two families exchange their marriageable daughters with the boys of other family and thus deal with various nitty-gritty involved in traditional Indian marriage. Smriti was married to Hukum Singh, a 49-years old widower whose cousin Devika’s marriage was settled with Smriti’s uncle Shyam. As expected Smriti’s family preferred wealth over sentiments and agreed to marry 17-years old Smriti with Hukum Singh. So much so that they didn’t even think of telling Smriti about her would be bride groom. Smriti only learnt about the identity of her husband during the marriage ceremony and she was so shocked with the development that she could not express her anger at the moment. When she returned home for the gauna ceremony, she refused to go back to Hukum Singh who was sexually abusing her. Later, her parents applied all kind of forces and restriction on Smriti to force her into giving in. Smriti was held captive in her own home without food and water but she refused to bow down. She instead ran away and reported the matter to the local police. Smriti’s story had a shocking climax as she was suffocated to death in broad day light and her murderers.

Will Smriti get justice?

After watching Sachin’s stunt-filled performance on the song Tamma Tamma loge, both the actresses were shocked and amazed with his ease. Sagar’s romantic performance on the song Tum jo aye Zindagi me dedicated to Madhuri Dixit reminded her of the great dancer Prabhudeva.

The entertainment quotient reaches new heights when a girl dances on the song Dhak Dhak karne laga. When it was revealed that it is none other than the naughty Preetjyot dressed as a girl, everyone including judges were shocked and were in all praises for Preetjyot. Madhuri dixit announced that, “It is the best dhak dhak dance I have seen in my life.” Later Madhuri danced with Preetjyot on the famous song and drove the audience wild.

Priyanka’s performance on the title track of Gulab gang compelled Madhuri dixit to say that she wants Priyanka in her Gulabi Gang and also shares that while watching the performance she got goosebumps.

Last but not the least, a special surprise saw ex-contestant Bebechana perform for the dhak dhak girl which left a smile on everyone’s face.
