World premiere for Fiji movie

THE world premiere of a locally-produced movie will be held in Suva on Thursday.

Australia-based director Vimal Reddy said the sneak previews of his movie Highway to Suva had overwhelming response in Sydney and Melbourne.

It is Reddy's third movie after Adhura Sapna and Ghar Pardes, which were partly shot in Fiji, and stars Fijians.

"The world premiere will be held at Damodar City at 6pm with cocktails followed by the screening at 7pm. It is two hours of total entertainment and is full of Fijian humour," said Reddy.

He said tickets for the movie would be sold at the cinema from Friday and there would be three screenings daily.

"This movie has a bigger production value than the other two with the cinematographer, choreographer and lead male singer from India. It is entirely shot in Fiji and it's as Fijian as it can get.

"All Fijian people are involved in the movie cast and it has a very good story line with a strong message for the community."

Reddy, who is employed, has a passion for directing movies and he said there were other projects at the back of his mind.

He said Highway to Suva would be released in other parts of the world after its release in Fiji.
