HBO CELEBRATES MOTHER'S DAYSuch an apt choice, probably inspired by the maternal gleam in Naomi Watts' eye when she's skating on the ice with the big monkey. Doubtless, mothers around the country will gurgle in delight when they watch the scenes with the three-foot-long man-eating cockroaches and hear NY cops shouting to each other, "Bandar jail se bhaag gaya hai!" But the release goes on to say:
WITH an exclusive PREMIERE OF
KING KONG IN HINDI
King Kong in Hindi is a special Mother's Day gift from HBO to its viewers. We received a tremendous response from the Indian audience for our offering of The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King in Hindi a few years ago. We hope to regale our viewers once again...
The most delightful thing about this is that the person who wrote the press release almost certainly failed to note the connection between Mother's Day and "The Mummy Returns". It's pure serendipity. Incidentally the release mentions that the channel will be screening Monster-in-Law as well. Maybe they can show The Towering Inferno on Diwali.
