Feb 2, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Touch Carrom integrates with ‘Striker’ to become the first ever official iPhone game of a Bollywood movie. The Indian Film Company and Studio 18 have tied up with ZENTITY s.r.o., the makers of popular iPhone game Touch Carrom, to promote their upcoming release, ‘Striker’.
‘Touch Carrom’ brings the favorite Indian carrom board game to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Touch-based game controls give the players very realistic game play.
‘Striker’ top lines Siddharth (of Rang De Basanti fame), a young carrom champ who is forced to give up the game to pursue other ambitions abroad. Destiny and circumstances bring him back to the game to earn money.
Striker comes from Chandan Arora, the director of ‘Main, Meri Patni Aur Who’ and ‘Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon’. It releases in Indian theaters on 5 February, 2010. It has already created history by becoming the first Indian feature to premiere internationally on YouTube day and date with its Indian release.
