you hear that
Namitha, the glam queen of
Kollywood is going to Hollywood? A newspaper reported that she has
signed to do “a film titled Maya produced by Gregory Constante and
directed by Eric Manning, who has a few suspense thrillers to his
credit like Tales from Beyond and Inside Job”.
Well, what is a Hollywood film?
Hollywood is world’s largest film industry which operates out of Los
Angeles in US. Some of the leading studios like Warner Bros,
Universal, , Paramount, Sony Pictures, Fox, and some leading
independent production houses like Miramax,, Lion Gates and others
can be referred to as Hollywood production houses.
Why do Indian actors and directors say that they are doing Hollywood
films? When a Rajiv Anchal or Jagmohan Mundhra talks about doing
Hollywood films actually, they are making a film with some NRI
producer of Indian origin as a Hollywood producer. Even the great
Aishwarya Rai has done so far only films produced by those of Indian
latest film “Mistress of Spices” was also produced by a little known
production company Balle Pictures, Capitol Films, Isle of man film
etc. However the moving spirit behind the venture is Gurindar Chadha
the London based producer, writer, and director of Indian origin.
Namitha’s “Hollywood” film
director is Eric Manning who is said to have done a suspense
thriller The Inside Job. According to IMDB.com, the world’s biggest
movie database: “The Inside Job is a 12 minute duration short film
made with a Canon XL-2 camera on a budget of $10,000(Approx: Rs 4.5
Lakhs) and did not have a theatrical release!”
The producer of the film Gregory Castante is listed in IMDB as “the
producer of a video film Perfumed Garden-Tales of Kamasutra”, which
was directed by our own soft-porn king Jagmohan Mundhra!
So it is crystal clear that Namitha is not doing a Hollywood film
but Maya, a film in English made by a few NRI’s under the banner of
“Global One Studios” which has Ashok Kumar (the Chennai based ace
cameraman) as cinematographer, story written by noted Tamil film
historian Randor Guy alias Rangadurai and directed by Eric Manning.
