Disney UTV’s 2014 movie slate spans across multiple languages

MUMBAI: After witnessing a successful year in 2013, Disney UTV has lined up a slew of bigger movies for 2014 which span across languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English.

In order to showcase concept-driven films featuring young new talent in front of and behind the camera, the studio will unveil films covering a variety of genres from drama, action and horror to romance, comedy and thrillers.

2014 will also mark the first slate of locally produced, Disney-branded movies including ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘P.K.’, ‘ABCD 2’ and ‘Jagga Jasoos’. A total of 14 Hindi films will be released this year accompanied by four in Tamil, one in Telugu and seven in English including ‘Captain America: The Winter Solider’ (In 3D) and ‘Saving Mr Banks’ to name but a few.

Disney UTV Studio VP and head theatrical, television and digital distribution Amrita Pandey said, “Disney UTV has produced some of the most trendsetting and cult movies of the past decade and we are confident that our upcoming releases will keep the same tradition alive. Our foremost effort is to ensure that we bring our audiences great stories that are original, innovative and delivered by the best talent in the business. We are delighted to associate with some of the most talented names in the industry—established names and debutants—to deliver a slate of movies that will entertain audiences of all ages and tastes.”

The studio has to its credit four films in the last seven years to have been selected to represent India at the Academy Awards, which include ‘Rang De Basanti’ (2006), ‘Harishchandrachi Factory’ (2009), ‘Peepli Live’ (2010) and ‘Barfi!’ (2012).

In 2011, UTV ventured into South Indian cinema with ‘Deiva Thirumagal’ and ‘Muran’, and has since released movies like ‘Vettai’, ‘Masala Café’, ‘Mugamoodi’, ‘Thaandavam’, ‘Settai’ and ‘Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru’ in Tamil, and ‘Grandmaster’ and ‘Husbands in Goa’ in Malayalam.

Its success in 2013 was marked by films like ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Race 2’, ‘Kai Po Che’, ‘ABCD’, ‘Ship of Theseus’, ‘The Lunchbox’ and ‘Shahid’.
