LOINS OF PUNJAB PRESENTS
A Film by Manish Acharya
88 minutes | Not Rated | English


"Loins of Punjab Presents [is] a winning, witty musical comedy with a sharp political edge...it joins showtime antics to socio-cultural commentary without ever reducing its characters, as colorful as they are, to cartoons."


"A lively romantic comedy....with excellent comic timing."


"A cheeky ethnic comedy! A multicultural satire with characters that offer fun company!"


"Film with lots to enjoy! It's 'American Idol' crossed with a Bollywood musical and a Christopher Guest comedy spoof."
A ruthless philanthropist. A bhangra rapper. An over-protected prodigy. A reckless actress. A lovelorn businessman. An entrepreneurial yogi. And a Loin King. Enter a roller-coaster world of seven strangers whose lives collide during a singing contest in a small New Jersey town.
Over three days in New Jersey, five Indian-Americans and one Jewish Indophile participate in the first DESI IDOL, a Bollywood-style singing contest sponsored by a pork millionaire. These contestants are pitted against each other in a singing and dancing extravaganza presided over by the wily contest promoter Sudarsh Bokade, a man with a strong preference for Gipsy Kings music. For seventy-two hours, armed with a song, these seven strangers are going to war.
LOINS OF PUNJAB PRESENTS is one of the first films to combine the musical vibrancy of a Bollywood film with a narrative rhythm that emerges from the West--think Monsoon Wedding meets Annie Hall, in a diner in Queens, for a masala omelette.
One of the highest-grossing English language comedies to ever open in India as well as the highest-grossing non-Bollywood film to open this year at New York's ImaginAsian theatre, Manish Acharya's directorial debut, which also enjoyed warm critical and commercial reception in major markets like Chicago and Dallas, is now available for booking nationwide.
NATIONAL CAMPAIGN INCLUDES:
--specialized outreach effort to the South Asian community coordinated by in-house promo manager
--veteran South Asian PR team is overseeing regional publicity
--ad support on a regional/local level (on a case by case basis)
--filmmaker and cast available for phone interviews (selectively)

(Available on 35mm and digital formats / 88 minutes / 1:85 ratio / In English / not rated / ready and available: flat & scope trailers, one-sheets, flyers)
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
Best,
Vincent Nebrida

I played this at The Imaginasian in NYC back on 9/12 to good success. Also had a decent run in North Bergen, NJ.
