Pyramid Saimira rides high on the success of VERUTHE ORU BHARIYA and also acquires distribution rights for three more films
Pyramid Saimira Theatre Ltd has also won the distribution rights for three more movies which will be released shortly - SAROJA in Tamil, SHOOT ON SIGHT, a Hindi cum English movie and GANESHA MATHE BANDA in Kannada. Pyramid Saimira Theatre Ltd recently released MUKHBIIR in Hindi on August 29.
Speaking on these developments, Mr. P.S. Saminathan, Chairman and Managing Director, Pyramid Saimira Group, said, "We are very happy with the way VERUTHE ORU BHARIYA has been received by our audiences in Kerala. It was a conscious decision on our part to release the movie across selected 33 screens in the state as this would ensure that collections remain steady over a period of time. We will also be releasing SAROJA, SHOOT ON SIGHT and GANESHA MATHE BANDA shortly and we're sure that these films will also do exceedingly well. We have also recently released MUKHBIIR which is running successfully all over India."
SAROJA and SHOOT ON SIGHT are expected to hit the theatres on September 5 and September 19, respectively.
SHOOT ON SIGHT is a Hindi cum English thriller that has been directed by Jagmohan Mundhra. The movie has been inspired by the bombings that occurred in London on July 7, 2005, thereby resulting in the death of 52 people on London's underground network. The story is fictional and is based on how an entire community sometimes gets targeted in the aftermath of an incident along the lines of the bombings in London. The movie profiles an innocent Muslim who becomes the victim of paranoia in the aftermath of 7/7, with its overzealous police force in the face of standing orders to "Shoot on Sight", any suspected terrorists. The cast includes Naseeruddin Shah, Brain Cox, Greta Scacchi, Om Puri, Gulshan Grover, Sadie Frost and Mikaal Zulfiqar. The movie has already been released in 60 screens in the UK and is running successfully.
