Phillums phor your phone…

First there were Bollywood crossovers, which involved concocting two Bollywood movies and make a new one. Then it was followed by Techno Bollywood that involved the unusual marriage of technology and Bollywood. Taking cue from the above two concepts and also looking at the fact that India is one of the fastest growing markets for mobile technology we here have decided to provide suggestions to the Bollywood producers and directors to make movies for the up market mobile segment.

The market nowadays is full of the so called ‘smart phones’. To the layman a smart phone is an all-in-one-cum-everything phone that has all the features of phone, camera, audio, video, PDA etc. For the not so layman, you can go here and read everything that you want to know about smart phones.

Okay so we have all forms of smart phones out there in the market. But do we have content that is targeted at smart phones? Think again… We say we don’t. DPS and MMS though can be technically stated as content for smart phones but that is for strict personal viewing. We do not discuss strict personal viewing contents here. We are a family blog. We will refrain to discuss the above. But we can take the discussions to healthy levels.

Here we look at what is missing from the current generation smart phones. We say CONTENT. What we see here is a dearth of content (read movies) that should be made for the smart phones. The content should be such that it should reflect the feelings and emotions of the phone (if at all it has any). So Iyer Education comes to the rescue and suggests the Bollywood producers and directors to redo / remake certain movies (English and Hindi) for the more upbeat smart phone market. The list can be endless and you can continue to get inspired by any and every movie and make a mobile version of the same… To kick off with the guidance process, here are a few samples to show you that we just don’t preach… we also practice… to a certain extent…



  • Give Missed Call for Murder (E): The story of an ex-tennis pro, who decides to murder his wife for her money and because was seen in an MMS in a compromising position with someone else. He blackmails the guy in the MMS to give her continuous missed calls (with a new number obviously… if she slept with him, she must have surely known his old number naa). And the guy who was supposed to kill, instead, gets killed and the entire suspicion is transferred to this tennis pro’s wife. You have to actually see the movie to see the suspense unfold…

  • MMS – The Scandal (H): It is the story of a soldier who once finds out that his father committed suicide after the father sees his son’s body double in a widely circulated MMS. The soldier suspects a city attorney to have shot this MMS and bring ill-repute to the family. In the end it turns out that it is the attorney’s father-in-law who is the culprit and who is into the business of spy / hidden cams (pervert father-in-law I say).

  • Sony Ericsson (H): Sven Goran Ericsson dreams of meeting a beautiful girl and he travels to seek her out. He finds her in the shape and form of Sony the daughter of a poor battery maker. Sony and Ericsson both fall in love instantly. But LG from Sony’s village has already decided to marry her, and he creates a gigiantic wall of misunderstandings and obstacles to prevent the two lovers from meeting again. But as it is often said… the rest is history…

  • Phonebook (E): A slick New York publicist who picks up a mobile phone from the ground told to make calls to the entire contact list (also known as Phonebook in the older phones) of about a million people and ask for apologies or else he'll be killed... and the little red light from a laser rifle sight is proof that the caller isn't kidding.

  • CDMA (H): A young technology receives an injury in a telecom mishap and ends up in a WLL (brothel). She is rescued by a young engineer who takes the technology to his home in the mountains. Meanwhile, her inventors (parents) and the cops are looking for her, and just as she is cured, they come to take her back to the location of origin of the signal.

  • Bluetooth Kanya (H): The central story is of the Bluetooth connection between Nokia 7710 the Untouchable (that’s why they give the stylus with it) and Motorazor the Touchable, in spite of dissimilarities between them. Later, when the main protagonists (cell phones) are about to pair with each other using blue tooth, viruses and maliciousness again intervene to trigger renewed violence and thus no happy endings.


That’s about it for now… You can, in the same way, come up with millions of other movies each for a different handset… Now if anyone out there is reading this and planning to actually “implement” this idea… Please do not think twice, contact us and we will tell you where to mail the royalty cheques… err mmm… We prefer Demand Drafts… They don’t bounce… hehe

Reading the kind of content, I think I will be very happy without a "smart phone". What are those, content...Is it meant to drive the person into a zoombie so that you can go and steal all their smart phones? :)
