IPL is kick starting from today. However, this cricket season, it's not just cricket which will do all the talking. While there is a wait and watch situation at the moment w.r.t. standoff between producers and multiplexes, audience may well get to see an entire film based on Indian Premier League (IPL), Indian Cricket League (ICL) and other such cricket leagues) during the peak of the cricket season. Titled KIRKIT, the film is ready and stars Jackie Shroff, Sanjay Kapoor, Gulshan Grover and Sayali Bhagat in the principal roles along with a bunch of youngsters.

Apparently, the film is a satire on the business of cricket and doesn't mince words during its reference to IPL and ICL. For actor Sanjay Kapoor, it will be second spoof/parody in a row after LUCK BY CHANCE. Even though the cast and crew of this Zoya Akhtar directed film had denied that it was a spoof movie, there were innumerous such references to Bollywood.

This time around though, no one denies the parody element. Says Sanjay Kapoor who has reinvented himself as an actor after LUCK BY CHANCE and now plays a crucial role in KIRKIT, ''I have finished shooting for this film which is a comedy. It's a fun movie to be a part of since it's a parody on IPL and ICL.''

CHECK OUT: From a failed actor, Sanjay Kapoor turns into a cool cop

What's the film exactly about other than the referential element of cricket?

''KIRKIT talks about how advantage is being taken of a common man by making everything so commercial, especially the game of cricket. It narrates how street kids have taken on to playing cricket due to exposure to IPL and other leagues which involve quick cricket day in and night out. It clearly states that now even cricket has turned into business'', details Sanjay.

The film has quite a few debutant boys playing wannabe cricketers. KIRKIT is produced and directed by Hyderabad based Shashi Pritam, a musician who has created more than 350 jingles and has also dabbled in composing music for Bollywood and South films.

Another film with cricket as its theme is HOOK YA CROOK which is directed by David Dhawan. A UTV Motion Pictures productions, this John Abraham, Genelia D'Souza, Kay Kay Menon, Shreyas Talpade starrer is currently under production and will be coming in the month of September 2009.
