Dubai UAE, June 5th, 2014 - Zafar Shah with Mother’s Eye Pvt. Ltd. presents ‘Unforgettable’, a Romance/Drama genre film produced for a worldwide Bollywood audience by Arshad Shah, Zarah Shah of Grand Media Corporation and Mumtaz Vision. The film stars TV heartthrob Iqbal Khan, along with Alka Verma, Hazel Crownee, Kiran Kumar, Shahbaz Khan and Usha Bachani. It also has William Porterfield, Nial O’Brien (Irish Cricket captain and wicket keeper) and Sachin Khurana (Mr. India) in friendly appearances.
It is the classic conflict between 'The love we want in our lives' (the kind that appeals to the eyes and requires a chase) 'and the love we really need' (the kind that appeals to the mind and requires a discovery). It is the conflict that separates what is ‘electrifying’ from what is ‘magical, an interesting battle between 'First Love' and ‘Soulmate’
‘Unforgettable’ is a strong musical, and has officially 9 songs recorded for its album, all unique and individual in all respects. This film will transport to the young audiences, songs that have traditional melodies and unique orchestration which have the purity of the Indian culture. The Ragas, the Thumri's the traditional Mujras have found their comfort zone within the Original Modern Music composed by Sujeet Shetty for 8 of the 9 songs in the Album. The 9th song being from an Irish band which will have the Romantics singing it's melodies.
‘Unforgettable’ is entirely shot in the UAE, however what makes 'Unforgettable’ unique, apart from its melodious music, is that it probably is the first Motion picture produced in the UAE for the huge Bollywood market and the rest of the world, by two local companies. Being responsible for making the most memorable TV adverts in the region for the past 2 decades, Director Arshad Yusuf Pathan, who is popular in the UAE, not only projects the UAE as a Romantic destination, but attempts to pave the way for UAE to be a gateway for Bollywood's Extension. The expectations from 'Unforgettable' are high, since Bollywood is no longer the property of India, but it represents all who love India and Indian culture globally. The Director has utilized his knowledge of the region and shown the kind of scale that could be possible only in a Multi-Million dollar budgeted film. The sound recording and design by the Award winning Sudhanshu Srivastav, not only adds value to the films multiple dimensions, but becomes another talking point of the film apart from its Music and Cinematography. British DOP Riki Butland has best showcased his talent in this film
Zafar Shah, the producer of the film said, “We are thankful to UAE government and particularly to Mr. Jamal Shariff and RAK Investment Authority for supporting this project and opening the doors with permissions and locations whenever required.”
This film being shot in 49 days, within one schedule over a period of two months, is a clean family entertainment movie which is structured like a Hollywood film. Within it's 2hrs and 8 minutes length, it has the necessary twist and turns that an International audience has gotten used to. However it's emotions, sensibilities and language is purely 'Hindustani', reminding one of the great Era of Romantic/Drama films. Iqbal Khan’s increasing fan base on Television may be a boost to the films targeted audience and could have huge appeal to youngsters and female audiences of all ages, and specially to the 'romantic at heart'.
Unforgettable.... the return of Romance, shall Premiere in Dubai, and is due for release in India/USA/Europe etc on June 12th & 13th, 2014.
