BIPASHA BASU & ABHISHEK BACHCHAN TAKE THE LEAD IN ‘DUM MAARO DUM’
Indian cinema takes audiences on a high octane trip across the dark side of Goa’s beach paradise when ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ opens in cinemas across the UK and worldwide on 22nd April 2011, releasing through Twentieth Century Fox.
‘Dum Maaro Dum’ is set in the exotic Indian beach resort of Goa, and tells the story of six characters whose lives change forever when they become embroiled in the shady and perilous underworld. A fast-paced, stylised thriller which races through the by-lanes, beach shacks and party scene of Goa,
‘Dum Maaro Dum’ is a compelling tale set against the stunning backdrop of one of the world’s most famous tourist hotspots. Directed by Rohan Sippy (Bluffmaster, Kuch Naa Kaho) and produced by Ramesh Sippy, who brought audiences one of the greatest classics in the history of Indian cinema, Sholay, as well as other cult films such as Seeta Aur Geeta, Shaan and Saagar, ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ is populated with notable characters and features a stand-out soundtrack that moves from haunting Konkani songs to pulsating dance music by maverick composer, Pritam. ‘Dum Maaro Dum’s’ cast combines Bollywood’s most established and best loved film actors with India’s brightest rising stars.
Acclaimed beauty and leading lady, Bipasha Basu, plays ‘Zoe’ – a bright and beautiful young woman who falls foul of Goa’s sinister underbelly. Joining her on screen is Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan portraying ‘ACP Vishnu Kamath’, a cop on a relentless mission to bring Goa’s criminals to justice. Rising star of Indian cinema, Prateik Babbar, plays ‘Lorry’ – a student with huge potential, whose fall from grace is marked by an encounter with a hustler from the wrong side of the tracks.
