TOPIC: Heather Kennett forced to resign from Eastern Courier following child
bullying stint

== 1 of 1 ==
Date: Sat, Jul 2 2011 10:20 pm

She's 50, lost her job, house, and a vital court case; but is Heather
Kennett about to lose a lot more if a suppression is lifted from the
court case she's lost, which involves allegations Heather Kennett
cyber bullied Jeremy Shum, Lachlan Clyne and Julian Carbone? Published
on is a "cherish and relish" article outlining key

1) Forced resignation from Heather Kennett, accomplished as of June
29, 2011. A person can only take so much social pressure, and clearly
over the past 7 months (which Heather Kennett had to wait out in order
to make it seem like her resignation had nothing to do with this
saga), Heather has had a long reflection, and is now admitting guilt.
In what has got to be an unprecedented event, News Corp has either
booted Heather Kennett, or Heather Kennett has resigned.

2) Demolishment of Heather Kenentt's property on 343 Fullarton Rd,
Parkside SA 5063. To live next to the remnants of such a sick and
conniving child predator would be against the principles of any modern
community. It is a landslide victory that her property has been
demolished. Interested in buying cheap land? Her house should be up
for auction very soon, as our friends boycott all developers that help
her build her property - And without a building, her house is worth
"dirt" (excuse the pun).

3) Search for "Heather Kennett" on any search engine and you'll notice
an embarassing list of petitions, news sites, blogs, and forum posts,
which expose Heather Kennett for who she really is: a complete and
unequivocal sociopath. If you for a second doubt Heather Kennett's
(lack of) morals, integrity and reputation, let us remind you of the
grossly unfair tarnish she made of Jeremy Shum's character, filled
with Kennett's rumors, deliberate misinformation, exaggeration,
misleading half-truths, fact manipulation. What is quite entertaining
is despite Heather Kennett tried to defame Jeremy Shum, instead of
succeeding, she has made herself a public relations nightmare.

4) Heather Kennett being told by the court that our exposure of her as
a cyber bully can't be removed as its political communication. Heather
Kennett took our bait, and started legal action to try to suppress
free speech. The court didn't view kindly to this, and though struck
out several articles as being defamatory (which were removed by
contacting the webhosts who refused to remove it, then subsequently
the search engines to remove it from their results), actually said
"this other stuff is actually allowed under freedom of political
communication". As such, Heather Kennett will have to appeal to a
higher court (High Court of Australia) to repeal this decision, in
what would be a really expensive application. This is not to bring up
the amount of time and money Heather Kennett has had to spend on
lawyers already. Quid quo pro for Heather Kennett's bullying of

So what's next? Continue the fight until News Corp removes all
defamatory content from their WhereILive website. This will include
doing what's been accomplished with Heather Kennett to Shannon Caton,
Chantelle Kroehn, Matt Deighton, and all subsequent editors (and
senior editors) until all defamatory content is removed (at least from
their website, if not others, including blogs, petitions, Wordpress,
Digg). You can help out by boycotting the following "pressure points":

- Heather Marie Kennett of 343 Fullarton Rd, Parkside SA 5063: Heather
Kennett is behind the cyber bullying of Jeremy Shum, which spans since
November 9, 2010 @ 7:55am.

- Robert Lindsay Kennett (aka "Rob Kennett) of 372 Glynburn Rd,
Kensington Gardens SA 5068: Robert Kennett is a lawyer at Kelly & Co
Lawyers, who along with the help of Peter Campbell is defending the
filthy Heather Kennett. Rob Kennett is married to Perri Estelle
Kennett. Surprise surprise Heather Kennett and Sarah Garvis have tried
to give Peter Campbell (Kelly & Co Lawyers) free publicity in the
Eastern Courier. How about a complaint to the Legal Professional
Conduct board regarding Peter Campbell? Heather Kennett, in being able
to hire a family member, has dramatically reduced her legal costs, in
a highly unethical manner. Please make Heather Kennett pay the full
legal cost!

- Shannon Jane Caton of 27 Gloucester St, Prospect SA 5082: Shannon
Caton is an editor of Eastern Courier, and is jointly liable for not
preventing cyber harassment of Jeremy Shum [by Heather Kennett]. is
married to Thomas Caton. Shannon Caton is directly responsible for the
publication, only seconded to Heather Kennett the writer herself.

- Chantelle Jayne Kroehn of 3 Fraser La, Mawson Lakes SA 5095:
Chantelle Kroehn is an editor of Eastern Courier, and is jointly
liable for not preventing cyber harassment of Jeremy Shum [by Heather
Kennett]. Chantelle Kroehn is directly responsible for the
publication, only seconded to Heather Kennett the writer herself.

- Matt Deighton: Further information needs to be obtained. Matt
Deighton is the chief editor of Eastern Courier, and is jointly liable
for not preventing cyber harassment of Jeremy Shum [by Heather
Kennett]. Matt Deighton is directly responsible for the publication,
only seconded to Heather Kennett, and the above listed direct editors.

- Sarah Jean Garvis of 57 Kym St, Port Noarlunga SA 5167: We have been
advised Sarah Garvis may have had involvement in the Jeremy Shum
smear, and is "good friends" with Kelly & Co's Peter Campbell. Sarah
Garvis has family members Deborah Garvis, Steven Garvis, Kathryn
Josephine Garvis.

- Lisa Denise Bachmayer of 14 Lakeside Ct, Tennyson SA 5022: Lisa
Bachmayer may have co-wrote articles defaming Jeremy Shum. It is
unsure, but she quit shortly after allegations were raised, so it's
hard to tell. Lisa Bachmayer has family members Adam John Bachmayer,
Denise Bachmayer, James Walter Bachmayer.

- Greg Barich does not reside in South Australia: Greg Barich is the
digital editor of Eastern Courier, and is assumed an accessory to the
cyber harassment of Jeremy Shum [by not putting pressure on Heather
Kennett]. Though he may not have direct control, he is encouraged to
"simply delete" all defamatory content about Jeremy Shum.


On June 20, pages of forensic evidence of Heather Marie Kennett of
Parkside cyber bullying Jeremy Shum and other Burnside candidates was
publicly leaked on 4chan. We are proud to announce that as of June 29,
less than 10 days after the material was published, public opinion has
caused Heather Kennett to tender her resignation from Eastern Courier
Messenger. Sarah Garvis and Daniel Frangos will be taking over as full-
time journalists. This is an landslide victory, which we should
cherish and relish. Thank you parents, local residents and neighboring
businesses to get rid of a dirty, filthy child predator from the lush
suburbs of Burnside.

- 50-year-old Heather Kennett has been exposed as a cyber bully, using
Google Group, Petition and Wordpress to narcissisticly attack others;
despite writing newspaper articles in the "Don't hurt" campaign of
Eastern Courier rebuking cyber harassment

- Heather Kennett (and Lisa Bachmayer, Shannon Caton, Chantelle
Kroehn, Alice Higgins) has used the internet to attack Lachlan Clyne,
Julian Carbone, Rick Powers, Jane Howard, Robert Paterson, Peter
Pavan, Con Zacharakis, David Lincoln

- There is an attempt to boycott companies who are helping to build
Heather Kennett's Fullarton Rd property

- Heather Kennett has been asked by Eastern Courier to leave following
her cyber bullying stint, but as she has been doing it from internet
cafes, McDonalds internet, Internode wifi, and the Tor network, it is
untraceable. We have been told Murdoch will be kicking out the filthy
rotten ugly kiddie predator

- Heather Kennett is using Kelly & Co Lawyers (Lachlan Andrews, David
Bache, Peter Campbell, David Colovic, Andrew Corletto, Luke Dale,
Michael Durrant, Belinda Grant, Jacqueline Ion, David Jenkin, Rob
Kennett, Andrew O'Halloran, Stuart Price, Clare Raimondo, Jamie
Restas, Marc Romaldi, Fiona Steffensen, Kenton Steicke, Garry Winter)
to protect her sick schemes, including Rob Kennett, her brother

- Heather Kennett is fighting allegations she "used paycheck
journalism", is a "white supremist", "accepted (sexual) bribes from
MBA drop out Ron Greens", is "psychopathic narcissistic". She is not
arguing items that are true, including that she was molsted by her

- Heather Kennett mistated fact by stating Jeremy Shum was an MD of a
US-based firm, when in fact he was a former Partner at P&Y Partners
Chartered Accountants (ABN 54 039 845 328), an Aussie company. She did
this as she was bribed by Ron Green, to attack political enemy Jeremy

- Heather Kennett is anti-Christian, anti-man, and of course a kiddie

- Heather Kennett is arguing "I was not abusive" in letters and visits
to Jeremy Shum, because Jeremy was "technically" 20 (above age of

- Heather Kennett has admitted to sending letters to Jeremy, visiting
his Burnside property, and being asked by Police to stop stalking Mr.

Possibly the largest list of accomplices in all of case law, Heather
Kennett has used, and their actions tabled:

- Ron Green, who has been helping Heather Kennett send emails to cyber
bully Jeremy Shum. Ronald Green failed to be elected as Mayor of
Burnside (2008), then again as councilor (2010), a fat selfish reject.
He failed to complete his University of Adelaide MBA

- Alex Twomey (the media spin king), Ian Kerr (the inactive
chairperson of POAAL), Marie McGrath-Kerr (mother of Ian Kerr who
finances her husband's travels overseas with POAAL money), Robert
Chizzoniti (POAAL boardmember) who have tried to harass Juen Phie
(accountant of Angela Cramp) by posting material to make Juen Phie
seem fraudulent, and harassing Juen's family (wife Catherine Chu aka
Nyuk Fung Chu, mother-in-law Moi Moi, father-in-law Hock Keng, sister-
in-law Nyuk Ying Chu, brother-in-law Kuan Teoh, mother Swie Hong,
brother Swai Phie, brother Wu Phie, sister Chai Phie). Heather
Kennett's involvement in this is obvious, saying Juen Phie "says he's"
ABC and DEF. Heather Kennett planted to oust both Juen Phie, as well
as Johnny Yung (Founding Partner of Corporate Communications @ P&Y)
and Jeremy Shum (Partner of Corporate Strategy, Business Development
and Technology Group) at P&Y (a chartered accounting firm). This also
involved Auspost alerting the AFP of one of Angela Cramp's PO's to
make her seem like she did something wrong - this is how far Heather
Kennett has tried to go. She has even tried to attack David Sen
Chartered Accountants, the parent company of P&Y

- Mathemagic (now Maths Worldwide) who ripped off parents $5k for a
piece of useless software before shutting down, who owes debts of more
than $4.3bn, using the internet to defame Jeremy Shum. This includes
Gary Rosenberg (CEO), Grant Thornton's fatboy Paul Billingham, and
David Newman (Maddocks lawyers)

- Andrew Parfitt and Gerry Griffin, who with Peter Hoj, has tried to
smear Jeremy Shum in the Eastern Courier messenger. This includes
using puppet Andrew Downing, and the corrupt ISTS department at UniSA,
who is responsible for much of the anti-Jeremy Shum smear. Andrew
Parfitt is using big lawfirm Minter Ellison from your taxpayer purse
to fund his escapade. This is the same Andrew Downing who was ousted
by the South Aussie ombudsman for losing the work of Matthew Wilson 3
times in a row. Andrew Downing is the guy behind smearing and kicking
out Prof Andrew Nafalski, John Thomas, Maureen Dollard. Funny how
"teachers" like Andrew Parfitt, Gerry Griffin, Andrew Downing, Stewart
von Itzstein, and Lee White, are posting unlawful content about their
STUDENTS. There's also the strange case of Christian Sandor, a total
psychopath, who has been launching DoS on Jeremy Shum web sites. Funny
how teachers like Christian Sandor are attacking young folk like
Jeremy. Has Mr. Sandor any principles?

- Rosemary Owens, who is coordinating the anti-Jeremy Shum efforts at
University of Adelaide. Rosemary Owens, despite being a lawyer
herself, is using Johnson Winter & Slattery lawyers, funded by your
tax dollars. Rosemary Owens recently resigned as HoS at Adelaide Uni
after allegations of corruption were alleviated, in particular,
smearing students to David Meyer (Lynch Meyer), manager of
Professional Ethics at LSSA. Rosemary Owens has uncontrollable rage,
screaming at editor of Hilarian just because the editor ranked the
Adelaide Uni courses. She has tried to gather smear from such sources
that would cooperate, which include Antonio Dottore, Caroline Plewa,
Celine McInerney, Fred McDougall, James McWha, Clem Macintyre
(Mcintyre?), Anne Hewitt, Susan Bartie, Ngaire Naffine, Bernadette
Richards, Laura Grenfell, Judith Gardham. Let's not forget using
Virginia Deegan (whose son Joshua Deegan was bomblasted), of Adelaide
Uni ITS, who has leaked confidential information about Jeremy Shum

- Don Owers and Stephen Spence at Tabor Adelaide, who since 2007 have
been writing theological articles of the far left. Don Owers won an
Order of Australia medal for dobbing in fellow Anglican priests who
were child molesters to the Police. We're all aware of the
backstabbing Don Owers did against his predecessors. Stephen Spence
holds a Degree in Computing.

- Andrew Rowland (aka Rowly), who with Adrian Dennien, have been
smearing Jeremy Shum throughout Adelaide HR firms. Andrew Rowland is a
consultant with Talent2, after years of being Worship Pastor at
Paradise Community Church. Despite having past experience in church,
Andrew Rowland claims to have "extensive experience" in new business
development. He is accused of doing Michael Guglielmucci-style fraud

- Ben Cuthbertson, former marketing manager at triple M, who following
media, shifted into church work (because of all the people he'd
backstabbed). There seems to be some connection with him, and Chelsea
Lake. Chelsea Lake (of Victor Harbor Baptist Church) is the overweight
psycho, who has been using Digg and other sites to harass Jeremy Shum

- Aldo Fusco, who is famous for spreading rumors throughout Life
Christian Center regarding an alleged sexual misconduct with his
daughter Christina Fusco, and physical harassment by Anthony Fusco and
David Cardillo that followed. He has been accused of links with
Italian mafia, and psychological harassment of Mr Shum. Then there's
the case of Katerina Kontakas (a teacher) who has been made a
Wordpress article (anonymously) calling Jeremy Shum a "loser". The
Betania Christian Center gang include: Virginia Fusco, Joe Leone, Lena
Leone, Dennis Slape, Chrissie Slape, Ruben Rivis, Lidia Rivis, Joseph
Leone, Tania Leone, Con Iengo, Maria Iengo, Luke Marroco, Christopher
Fusco, Red Loan Solutions, Katerina Fusco, Joe Leone, Dennis Slape,
Barry Chant, Ruben Rivis

- Geoff Lin (AFES, ES Adelaide, Holy Trinity Anglican) who has been
posting anti-Jeremy Shum content. Mr. Lin holds a Degree in Law from
Sydney University, though does not hold a legal practise certificate,
and has been accused of taking advantage of tax-free status of
religious organizations, cheating on tax. It was overheard that Geoff
Lin said he could send his kids to a private Anglican church for "50%
of the cost". His church generates $3m tax-free. His church gang
include: Susan Harris, Andrew Jackson, Geoff Keen, Ellis Saxon, David
Schultz, Peter Smith, Ian Bartlett, Brett Cowell, Paul Harrington,
Chris Jolliffe, David Smith, Craig Broman, Geoff Lin, Arthur Ang,
Lochy Cupit, James Harricks, Emily Just, Caroline Litchfield, Joanne
Lock, Claire O'Neill, Barb Page, Mark Peterson, Jill Phillips, David
Brown, Matt Lehmann, Mike Roe, Cameron Munro, Clayton Fopp, Anne
Eckermann, John Warner, David Broxholme, Marina Maddock, Faith
Tennant, Andrew Cole

- Jason Hoet (Unley Park Baptist, BCSA), who despite holding a Masters
in Theology (on top of a Bachelors in Engineering), has used the tax-
free status conferred by the government, and seems to be spreading
malicious rumors about Jeremy Shum to churches in Adelaide

- Mark Peterson, who is using Google Groups to post unlawful content
about Jeremy Shum. Mark peterson is most famous for generating money
through his CD sales, which are tax-free because it is "religious".
The Anglican church is so irrelevant they have had to use singers like
Mark Peterson to regain publicity

- Reuben Salagaras (St Matts Kensington Anglican), who since 2006 has
been using Google Groups to harass Jeremy Shum. Failing to get a job
after studying law/engineering, he went on to study theology. Reuben
Salagaras gang at St Matts includes: Susan McLeod, David Bassett, John
Miller, Ben Woodd, Greg Lock, Sam Bleby, Sum Lock, Pip Cooper, Lisa
Kemp, Fiona Crocket, Wilma Taylor, Heidi Rangai, Caroline Wicks,
Yvonne Potter, Owen Lewis, Mary Lewis, Maggie Crewes, Frances Cook,
Tab Aylen

- Miriam Telfer, nurse from St Matts Anglican, who has posted sexual
content about Jeremy Shum, including saying he was slovenly and
prostitute like. Miriam Telfer is a small group leader at Adelaide
University, nursing student at Adelaide University. Funny how she's a
nurse, but despite that, she is posting unlawful content about Jeremy
Shum online. Miriam Telfer gang include: Jordan Telfer, Luke Telfer,
Karla Telfer, Malvern Lyn Telfer, Isaac Telfer, Sam Telfer, Josephine
Telfer, Josh Telfer, Mike Telfer, Simeon Telfer, Esther Telfer, Rachel
Telfer, Amy Telfer, Jonathan Telfer

What I think is particularly entertaining is the more Heather Kennett
tries to cyber bully Jeremy Shum, the more famous he is getting, and
the more advertising revenue he gains. This is as compared with
Heather Kennett, who everybody knows is posting malicious messages
online, and ruining her reputation.

Why can't we make films for adults?

The Pioneer
Sunday, July 3, 2011

Imran Khan may have the blessings of his uncle Aamir Khan, but he has
already made a mark of his own. The Delhi Belly actor talks to Rinku
Ghosh on his latest film and supporting new talent

Q - You have been promoting Delhi Belly along with generating
interest on your PIL on lowering the drinking age in Maharashtr from
25 to 21. Is it smart marketing to offset the irreverent tone of the
film or commitment to a cause?

A - Honestly, my campaign is long-term. And I haven't spoken about it
to the entertainment media during my Delhi Belly promotions. I have
tried to segregate issues and talked about the drinking age bar in
the mainstream media. Having said that let me clarify that the timing
was purely coincidental. Had the decision against lowering drinking
age not come a couple of weeks ago, you wouldn't have asked me this

My decision wasn't instinctive. I met lawyers to understand if this
battle had a chance. They felt I could seek redress under the

Q - I think the drinking age bar always gets lost in the argument of
responsible drinking behaviour and whether lowering an acceptable age
limit is about encouraging alcoholism in the first place...

A - If you are giving responsibility to an adult, then give him a
free hand. Half-measures can only leave you confused. If you're
giving a person the right to vote and choose a partner at 21, then
that person should have the right to indulge in anything which is
legal in India.

Admitted, drinking can become a serious problem and I have seen my
friends go through it. But you are not solving it by taking the right
step. Legalise the drinking age at 21 and chances are that many young
people will not transgress limits in a spirit of rebellion and may
even sit down with their parents for a drink, shed their inhibitions
and become responsible members of an open society. A restrictive step
will have a negative fallout. First, everyone will make fake IDs in
Mumbai. Second, there will be bribery and bootlegging. Unknowingly,
we will be creating a sub-culture of corruption and crime.

Q - Why did you choose to take up the issue with women journalists?

A - My idea was to address a different section of the media and get
an alternative viewpoint. And indeed, I found myself in the middle of
a different line of questioning. One journalist asked me how I could
compare the right to drink with the rights to vote and marry.

The first could take you on the road to perdition, while the latter
would help you become a responsible member of society. I told them we
were not debating a moral issue, but an issue of legality. People
were just as likely to choose a bad representative or a partner. My
campaign is about the right to do things.

Q - Young actors like you are more adaptable to marketing strategies.
So much so that film marketing itself has become an idea independent
of what the film is about. What prompted you to stay in a one-room
flat in Delhi?

A - Film marketing is now like setting the pitch for an ad campaign.
Had it been as simple as putting up posters and running trailers, we
actors wouldn't have had to do anything. The idea was to prepare an
audience for our film, excite, involve and engage them. Delhi Belly
is for the adult audience, today's youth to be particular, who live
the life of the three young characters in the film, speak their
language, goof around and hang out together.

By putting myself in a one-room studio flat, I've immediately
connected with a section of the crowd among whom I want to create a
buzz, appear as one of their own tribe. There is a section of the
audience that will hate the film and they have already started
voicing their opinions. So we had applied for the A certificate from
the beginning and the promos were intended to warn people that this
is not a sit-down family film. If it's not intended for you, do not
watch the film. That's the clear cut message. We make cartoons for
kids, right? What's wrong, therefore, in making a fun film for
adults? Nobody has tried this approach of only focussing on the
target audience and warding off the others.

Q - Is this why the songs came before the promos of the film?

A - The song DK Bose has unintentionally become a tool of magical
marketing. In one stroke, it has managed to excite our target
audience and warn off others. The song is a great barometer; if you
like it, you'll like the film. If you don't, the film is not for you.
Normally, it takes a lot of time to prep and prime the audience. DK
Bose did that for us within a week. Everything after that is just a

Q - Did you know about the songs from the drawing board stage?

A - Not at all, they were recorded separately. The first time I heard
DK Bose, I knew it would be a huge hit halfway into it. I also knew
that a large section of civil society would criticise it, saying it
was against Indian culture.

Q - Do you think the censor was mature enough to pass the song?

A - There have been far more questionable songs that have been
passed. There has been a fair number of Hindi songs with references
to oral sex. DK Bose is just a pun. It has generated a controversy as
it upholds youth culture, which is scary for those who don't get it.
Any song or film that touches on something cool, young and cutting-
edge scares people. Had DK Bose not been a hit, people wouldn't have
complained. The reason it is a hit is because an entire generation is
uttering the same lines and relating to the lyrics.

My grandparents were pretty suspicious of the song �Oh bloody, oh
blooda.� They weren't sure what it was but were sure it had a dirty

Q - Why do you want to segregate the audience who are anyway
bombarded with cuss words in the public space? Remember there's free
speech on cyberspace. Let them watch your film and decide for
themselves. Like the voter, the Indian viewer is also mature.

A - As creative people, the audience is our judge. We are not in the
business of changing their opinion. We are not social crusaders, we
are entertainers. If somebody does not like the film, it's alright.
We cannot say his thoughts are wrong. But our intention is not to
cheat the audience. Had we held out a smokescreen, they would resent
it and hold it against us.

You have to be honest to your audience. We don't want people to come
with their children and then walk out angrily. Even those who are
curious should not come and criticise it. Our interest is to
entertain people who are interested in watching this film for its
sake. That's it.

Q - What is the genre of Delhi Belly? Seems a bit like

A - I am a big fan of Quentin Tarantino films (he flaunts his T-shirt
that has the poster of Death Proof emblazoned on it). I love his
crime capers where there is an undercurrent of humour and satire amid
all the action, violence and death. That's what happens in Delhi
Belly. Horrible things keep happening to these three guys. Vir (Das)
is beaten and his head is shaved. Kunal (Roy Kapoor) gets hit by a
toilet bowl and fractures his skull while one of my eyes is swollen
and my lip is cut. A roof falls over our head because of which our
head is covered with cement.

Q - Would you say Delhi Belly is your most satisfying film till date
because all your other films have mostly been breezy romantic

A - Yes hands down, this is one film which I have done according to
my style and taste. It is close to my sensibilities.

Young guns

By Johnson Thomas
The Pioneer
Sunday, July 3, 2011

This has so far been a nightmarish year for the Hindi film industry,
as it has seen most of its big-budget movies biting the dust at the
Box Office. But it is not all bad news. Small-budget films, with new
and young faces, have managed to provide a silver lining for the
ailing industry

Bollywood after Sholay has been about big star-cast films and
skyrocketing budgets. Over the years the revenue from the mainstream
arena has been pitiful with just a small number making it past the
revenue earner stage. Filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali
(Saawariya, Guzaarish), Ashutosh Gowariker (Khelein Hum Jee Jaan
Sey), Vipul Shah (Action Replayy), Anil Sharma (Veer), Anurag Basu
(Kites), Leena Yadav (Teen Patti), Mani Ratnam (Raavan), Yash Raj
Films (Dil Bole Hadippa, Pyaar Impossible, Lafangey Parindey), Farah
Khan (Tees Maar Khan) and Ram Gopal Varma (Rakht Charitra 2) had to
incur mighty losses.

According to a report released at FICCI-Frames -- the annual conclave
for people working in the entertainment industry -- this year, the
media and entertainment industry registered a 11 per cent growth in
2010, touching close to Rs 652 billion, but Bollywood suffered a net
loss of Rs 300 crore because a majority of its big-budget mega-star
films fell by the wayside. In fact, one estimate says 96 per cent of
films being made have tanked at the Box Office. Experts at the
conference opined that it was time Bollywood focussed on scripts
rather than stars and frills. Even scriptwriter Anjum Rajabali
(Ghulam, The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Raajneeti) made an impassioned
plea, urging the industry to focus on content rather than gloss.

"Though we are the largest film producing industry in India, we still
have complaints about our inability to make the kind of returns we
are expected to make. Week after week, flops, flops and flops litter
the Box Office cinemascape. And in any given year, only a few manage
to strike it rich," observed Rajabali.

The crisis has probably made the industry rethink and even the big
production houses have decided to go for some serious slimming. Some
have even gone a step further and set-up separate divisions to churn
out smaller budget and far more viable films. Last year, with the
economic slowdown playing havoc, the industry had to make a mid-
course correction. So, a majority of the films being released today
are in the budget of Rs 2 crore to Rs 20 crore. More than a dozen of
such movies have already been released in the past six months and
more are set for release, while a larger number is ready to go on

The result is before us now. The recent release of films like Pyaar
Ka Punchnama, Shaitan, Shor in the City, Dhobi Ghat, Bheja Fry 2,
Stanley Ka Dabba, Ragini MMS, etc, in recent weeks and the previous
good showings of films like Bheja Fry, A Wednesday, Mithya, Phas Gaye
Re Obama, Tere Bin Laden, Band Baaja Baaraat, No One Killed Jessica,
Love Sex Aur Dhokha, Tanu Weds Manu, among others, reaffirmed what
was being believed for some time now: That small-budget, innovative
movies are helping Bollywood survive a string of big-budget flops.
Much is also expected from the Aamir Khan Productions' just released
Delhi Belly, which has some serious competition in Amitabh Bachchan's
Bbuddha Hoga Terra Baap.

A small-budget film does not necessarily guarantee returns though.
Recent releases Teen Thay Bhai and Shagird fared miserably and Onir's
I Am, the first film to try crowd financing for its production, was a
critical success but not a Box Office money spinner. Even Dhobi Ghat,
which managed to get in a tidy initial because of Aamir Khan's
association, did not do brisk business at the Box Office. Trade
analyst Vinod Mirani believes that whatever be the budget of the
film, it's the content and the current audience taste that matter.
"Be it a big or a small-budget film, the audience still has to pay
the same amount of money for a ticket at the multiplex. The multiplex
may have made it easier for smaller players to showcase their films
and garner a spillover audience, but it has also managed to drive
away a certain section of the audience who were once loyal to the big
star-cast films," says Mirani.

Most movies that have done well this year are either small-budget or
the works of new filmmakers. Interestingly, even a new breed of
actors like Rajeev Khandelwal, Rajkumar Yadav, Prateik Babbar, Rajat
Barmecha, Kalki Koechlin and Vinay Pathak has secured a respectable
place in the Hindi film industry. Mirani quips, "But that is because
the big stars and their producers have little to offer in terms of
newness or interesting content. Even the Sippys have failed to make a
mark in the relatively small-budget bracket. Dum Maaro Dum might have
had a reasonable run in certain sectors with urban multiplexes, but
it failed to spark interest in the rest of India. At best, it may
just about manage to break even."

Many big-budget filmmakers have reversed their views and are now
thinking small-budget. So, in the coming years, audiences will find
less big-budget films releasing, with immense concentration on
"strong content and an intense storyline", said Karan Johar, director
and CEO of Dharma Productions, at the FICCI conclave.

Dharma's relatively low-budget Wake Up Sid did reasonably well at the
Box Office last year and there are few more waiting to hit the
theatres soon.

Film commentator Meenakshi Shedde has a different take on the issue.
"Small-budget films have always gone hand-in-hand with big-budget
ones from as early as the 1960s and 1970s. So, this is not a new
phenomenon by any yardstick. It's just that multiplexes have changed
viewing habits of the audience who are now looking for quick fixes
and do not have the patience to wait in long serpentine queues for a
ticket of their favourite star's film," she says.

This, Shedde feels, has provided a greater opportunity to young
filmmakers to showcase their craft. People like Anurag Kashyap,
Vishal Bhardwaj, Sagar Ballary, Rajat Kapoor, Vikramaditya Motwane,
Abhishek Chaubey and Anusha Rizvi have played a major role in
redefining audience tastes by making films that allow the starved
audience to wear their thinking caps while watching a film.

Subhash Ghai's Mukta Arts is a listed company and is answerable to
shareholders. Even he has forayed into the small-budget bracket with
Kashmakash and Cycle Kick. Opines Shedde, "Today, most production
houses are adopting a portfolio approach to movie-making. So, they
are into making all kinds of movies -- small, medium and big-budget.
In this way they can cut down on costs and garner a higher profit

Most filmmakers today, especially the younger lot, prefer to play
safe. Anywhere between Rs 1 crore and Rs 10 crore seems to have
become a viable margin for production houses and independent
filmmakers. Many of these films have a set target audience, mainly
residing in metros and some are even making films for the NRI
audience. Pritish Nandy Communications (Mr and Mrs Iyer, Chameli) set
the trend initially. Thereafter, others like Metalight Productions,
Viacom18, UTV Spotboy, Channel Nine Entertainment, Percept Picture
Company and Yash Raj have achieved greater successes with their small
and medium-budget films.

Senior film critic Vijay Vashisht, however, believes that stars and
big-budgets still matter to the audience. "Stars have always been
important and will always be. Be it those in the yesteryears like
Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand or Raj Kapoor and those of today, like Shah
Rukh Khan (My Name is Khan), Salman Khan (Dabangg, Ready), Aamir Khan
(Ghajini, 3 Idiots) and Amitabh Bachchan (Black and Paa), they all
have a solid standing in the industry and will continue to do so
provided they remain flexible and try to reinvent themselves to suit
the changing times."

It's the same flexibility, along with Aamir's new-age promotion
tactics and marketing strategies, that has made the Aamir Khan
Productions a formidable force in the entertainment industry. Aamir
has not only evolved as an actor, but also managed to strategise the
marketing of his films with great intuitive efficacy. It has always
been a grouse with his directors that Aamir interferes too much on
the sets. And any product with Aamir in it had to have his stamp of
approval. Shedde says, "Aamir is a risk-taker as a producer and an
actor. Be it Lagaan, Ghajini, Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots, Dhobi Ghat,
Delhi Belly or any of his forthcoming releases, he has given 100 per
cent both in the pre-production as well as the post-production

It is well-known that during the pre-release publicity drive of 3
Idiots, Aamir travelled across the country to uniquely promote the
film. Even Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer of the film, admitted
jokingly: "I don't know what I have got myself into. Aamir just calls
from wherever he is promoting the film and says we need this, this
and that, and I oblige. I don't know whether I'll go bankrupt with
this film or end up making money." It's another matter that the film
went on to become the top-most grosser of all time.

Indulgent promotions have begun to signify a thriving business model
for films of varying budgets. For Taare Zameen Par, Aamir went all-
out to promote the cause of dyslexia, and the results were there for
all to see. The Ghajini hair cut and the eight-pack abs are also
well-remembered tricks that he employed to promote the film. Even for
Dhobi Ghat, his wife Kiran Rao's directorial debut venture, Aamir
took the festival route, garnered critical acclaim and only then did
he start promotions in India. He even managed to garner a fair amount
of buzz before the film's release which gave it a good initial.

For his nephew, Imran Khan, Aamir gifted Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na and
most recent release Delhi Belly. For both the films he has been
unstinting in adopting marketing gimmicks and promotions. Jaane Tu...
made Imran a star. Now it remains to be seen whether Maamu jaan can
tread the same path with Delhi Belly.
