"The film is shaping up very well and the audiences should get ready to enjoy a gripping, moving film with great visual appeal, coming their way on 4th February," Ramesh Sippy says.
"We are hugely excited about Dum Maro Dum as it has a great script, it's vibrant and contemporary and we expect the film to appeal to a wide audience. The February timing is perfect as it is strategically timed just before the World Cup cricket. The window of late January and early February works for us also as we are familiar with the release environment during that period," says Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios.
Dum Maro Dum will be Fox Star Studio's third release in the same period as it released Slumdog Millionaire in 2009 and My Name Is Khan in 2010 during the period of late January and early February. Coincidentally, February 5 happens to be the birthday of Abhishek Bachchan, who plays the role of a fearless cop in the film.
Dum Maro Dum is co-produced by Fox Star Studio and Ramesh Sippy Entertainment and stars Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Rana Daggubati, Pratik Babbar and Aditya Panscholi. The film's first schedule in Goa is complete and the second schedule in Mumbai is to begin in June 2010. The film, written by Shridhar Raghavan, will have new sounds keeping the title in mind and the music is created by Pritam with lyrics by Jaideep Sahni.
The movie is an edgy dramatic thriller which races through the bylanes, beach shacks and raves of Goa. Populated with unforgettable characters, punctuated with a soundtrack that moves from haunting Konkani songs to pulsating dance music and shot right in the midst of the teeming international tourist hotspots, Dum Maro Dum takes you on a trip that will have you on the edge of your seat.
