London Dreams Movie Preview

Directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah of Namaste London fame, London Dreams stars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and Asin in lead roles. The movie distributed by Indian Films – Studio 18, has music composed by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy.

The movie is about two childhood friends who have little in common, except the connection with music both families shared. Arjun’s (Ajay Devgan) goal in life is to realize his grand father’s unfulfilled dream of performing on stage. Mannu (Salman Khan) on the other had absolutely no interest in music and was happy with enjoying all the good things life has to offer.

Never had they expected music to solidify their friendship and then test it with catastrophic results…

Arjun, an abandoned child, ran away from an uncle who was his only family in an unfamiliar land. He roamed the streets of London struggling to pursue his sole dream of making it into the world of music and show-manship. He forged a band with Zoheb (Rannvijay Singh) and Wasim (Aditya Roy Kapoor), two brothers who’d duped their relatives in Pakistan to travel to London in pursuit of their musical ambitions, and Priya (Asin), a beautiful and young music enthusiast.

Far away in Punjab (in India), Mannu took to playing in local wedding bands to make ends meet. Shortly after bringing Mannu to London to make him a part of his band, Arjun realized that he had blundered by creating the biggest threat and obstacle to his ambition.

Mannu, incredibly gifted, became an instant opiate of the masses with his unique and irreverent style of performing. What took Arjun years to achieve, Mannu did overnight. Arjun felt betrayed by the God to whom he’d surrendered everything in exchange for eminence in music. His (Arjun’s) pangs of jealousy and insecurity became worse when Mannu won over his secret love, Priya.

Battling his inner demons and consumed by rage, Arjun devised a sinister plan to destroy his best friend and adversary. Over a three city tour spanning Paris, Rome and Amsterdam, Arjun sent a naïve Mannu on a downward hurtling roller coaster ride of sex and drugs before a grand finale at the historic Wembley Arena, where Arjun hoped to regain and enjoy his moment of glory.

But as a rude shock awaited Arjun, it also turned into a humbling and introspective experience that taught him the real meaning of acceptance.

London Dreams releases on October 30th 2009 and would be Salman’s second release of October after Main Aur Mrs Khanna which releases during the week of Diwali (October 16th)
