Simultaneous Release of Bengali Movies in North America

Dear Leaders of the Bengali Community and Organizations:

You no more have to wait six months to see that new Bengali movie! Nor will you have to suffer bad quality pirated DVDs from your local grocery store.

The newest and latest Bengali movies will now be released simultaneously in North America and be available in USA & Canada wherever we NRIs usually Buy, Rent or Download movies --- Netflix, Blockbuster, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, iTunes and many, many more retail and online outlets.

Through a revolutionary business model and exclusive arrangements, Databazaar Media Ventures ( http://www.databazaarmedia.com/ ), will make the above possible for movies that it undertakes to distribute. The first Bengali movie already to take this route and currently available for pre-order at all the above-mentioned outlets, is “Dwando” --- by national award winning director Suman Ghosh, starring Soumitra Chatterjee and Ananya Chatterjee. Releasing in early June will be “Beyond The Stars” ( Ekti Tarar Khonje ) from the team that produced “Antaheen”. There will be releases every month and community members are encouraged to sign up on DMV’s website to be notified of all upcoming releases.

For a longtime the Bengali community in North America has been deprived of new Bengali movie releases and even good quality DVDs for Bengali films never existed. Therefore the present drive by Databazaar Media Ventures will fulfill a long felt need of the Bengali community. Besides, these movies will also be available to the wider American audience that is interested in foreign films thereby opening up the international market for modern Bengali cinema --- an industry which is in dire need of increased revenue for bare survival. The Bengali film industry does need your help and this is your chance. As a community leader please send this email to your members and encourage them to order the new releases from Netflix, Blockbluster, Amazon, etc. Higher order flow will encourage Netflix, Blockbluster and others to carry more Bengali movies which in turn will also be available to the international market.

We request that you kindly circulate this news among your community members so that everyone can enjoy this new opportunity as well as help in the growth of the legendary Bengali film industry.

Watch it on Netflix Buy it from Amazon.com

Bengali Movies are now available on first day of release in North American Market

Dear Leaders of Bengali Community and Organizations,

We are excited to share a community news.

Bengali Movies now will be available in North America on first day first show release through Netflix, Block Bluster and ITune. Oney Seal, CEO of DatabazaarMedia Ventures took initiative to make this possible so that North American Bengalis now can have easy access to new Bengali releases.

As you all know, we had to wait for 3-4 months after new Bengali release before pirated DVD becomes available in the Indian Groceries. We also shared painful experience of running bad Bengali DVDs which we could barely watch without any interruption. Hopefully those days are history now.

Dwando will be the first release available on 16th March ( movie trailer) . Acted by Soumitra Chatterjee, Koushik Sen and Ananya Chatterjee, Dwando is an ethical "love storm". You can also buy downloads from the sources listed below.

As an editor of online Bengali magazine VNNBangla( www.vnnbangla.com), I appeal to all of you to spread this email to your contacts. Please understand that distributing Bengali movies in North American market costs a fortune and unless we support this venture by ordering DVD in Netflix or renting it from Block Bluster we, the North American Bengalis will be the biggest loser because this venture is serving a long-time need of our community.

Yours sincerely
Dr Biplab Pal
