Remember MTV? The Music Channel. Remember the spoof-y programme that used to air on it – Fully Faltoo? A series of mini-movies which spoofed the popular and cult movies and genres and characters and sportspersons and whatnot…Chhole, Ghoom, Sachin Childulkar, Makdimanav and others included. Now its come up with not one, but three spoof movies based on three popular hit movies. Called the MTV Fully Faltoo Film Festival, it will telecast the three mini-movies starting this Saturday. You can guess the originals from the spoof names – Bechaare Zameen Pe, Cheque De India and Jadoo Ek Bar
I came across the ads a few days ago and the web is full of news article and announcements and photographs of the launch so I won’t write much else, except that out of the three, Bechaare Zameen Pe sounds the most er…um…promisingly funny (duh!) what with Cyrus Sahukar as Pareshaan Awasthy! One interesting tidbit I noticed is that the actress playing Jadoo in the spoof of Jodhaa Akbar is Shambhavi Sharma…she of the MTV Roadies (in)fame(y)! The telecast’s at 7 PM every Saturday, starting the 20th September, on MTV.
