Actual functioning of media has traditionally been looked with keen interest, especially by followers of alternate cinema. The farthest one can remember is Amitabh Bachchan's MAIN AZAAD HOON that received intense critical acclaim.

Madhur Bhandarkar's PAGE 3 worked both critically and commercially while CORPORATE too followed the same route. In between came Shahrukh Khan's PHIR BHI DIL HAI HINDUSTANI but an attempt to mix art and commerce didn't really cut ice with many, though in retrospective the film seems to have been released way ahead of its times.

Now comes yet another film that aims at exposing the games played by media in their attempt to announce, plant or sometimes even manufacture 'breaking news'. And this is where the film takes its title - BREAKING NEWS!

While there has been a world where news breaks all by itself and arrives on your door steps, there is also a world where news has to be created in order to have it break in front of millions of viewers. STING OPERATION is one such tool to facilitate that! An operation that depends a lot on glamour, sensationalism and controversies.

Koel Purie plays one such journalist in the film who gets involved in an operation masterminded by her. But soon she gets entangled into a web which makes it difficult for her to come out of it.

Originally planned for release last year, BREAKING NEWS is now aiming for a release in coming weeks. Also starring Abhimanyu Singh, Swati Sen, Atul Parchure, Harsh Chhaya, Vinay Apte, Vandana Gupte, Virendra Saxena, Shishir Sharma, Nandita Puri, Tanushree, Anita Wahi, Dhananjay Mandrekar, Vijay Patwardhan and Rahul Vohra, BREAKING NEWS is produced by Shreyas Mhaskar and directed by Vishal Inamdar.
