New York, NY (PRWEB) August 3, 2010
The global Bollywood hit Tere Bin Laden, a satire that spoofs the media’s love for sensationalism, arrives in North America opening Friday, August 6, 2010. Critically acclaimed, the film has been banned by the Pakistani Government.
Tere Bin Laden, a comedic take on life in a post-9/11 world, portrays the bumpy road that many émigrés experience in achieving the American dream. Tere Bin Laden will distributed to limited theaters in the Tri-State area, Washington DC, the San Francisco Bay area, Chicago, Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Los Angeles and Toronto.
This film depicts an ambitious news reporter “Ali” from Pakistan who is desperate to pursue the American dream. His repeated attempts to immigrate are routinely denied and when things couldn’t look worse, he comes across an Osama Bin Laden look alike—he then takes a daring route to produce a fake Osama Bin Laden video and sell it to news channels as a breakthrough scoop. Unfortunately, there are serious ramifications as the White House gets involved and dispatches an overzealous secret agent on Ali’s trail.
