DVD of Amen


The DVD of Amen, a short  film based on noted equal-rights activist Harish Iyer's life is releasing on  October 5. The  same day ashis idol Sridevi's much hyped comeback vehicle "english vinglish".

On being asked why october 5, the director Judhajit Bagchi said "Harish Iyer is arguably Sridevi's biggest fan. And this is a world-known fact. We couldn't think of any other auspicious day".

Harish Iyer, recently stated in Satyamev Jayate that Sridevi's films that build an imaginary world as a protection cover around him,  helped him cope with trauma of 11 years of child sexual abuse. We caught him in a chirpy mood when he exclaimed ;I'm overwhelmed, this is the second best gift I have received. Sridevi gifted me a second lease of life and my life will be owned on DVD exactly on the day when she hits her second innings".

Valentina Erath the austrian presenter of the film says "it's been a long battle with the indian censors. And finally the DVD is out thereto own and on Harish's most precious day" .

Noted television star  Karan Mehra (Yug in life Ok's Amrit Manthan) plays Harish (harry)  in "Amen". When we asked him about the release date Karan quick came the  reply from Karan ;I am also an obsessed Sri fan.  And I have  fallen in love with Harish while being him in Amen. So I am doubly happy"

The film breaks de bunks stereotypes and raises several pertinent questions.   Visit www.bit.ly/AMENdvd for copy of this critically acclaimed classic that has won appreciation the world over.
