Thanks to the magic of editing, President Obama will have a starring role in a television drama about one of his biggest accomplishments — the killing of Osama bin Laden — that will be shown just two nights before the presidential election. But the star turn is virtually certain to bolster claims that the approximately 90-minute film amounts to a political stunt. Set for a prime-time debut on Nov. 4 on the National Geographic Channel, and a release the next day on Netflix, the film — “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden” — is being backed by Harvey Weinstein, a longtime Democratic contributor and one of the Obama campaign’s most vigorous backers. Mr. Weinstein bought the rights to the film for about $2.5 million at the Cannes festival in May. It tells the story of the hunt by intelligence operatives and Navy commandos for Bin Laden, who was killed on May 2, 2011, in Pakistan.

Saw seal team six the raid on Osama bin Laden. Poor. Could have done much better. Besides what they showed as Abbotabad was probably some Mumbai suburb. There were shops with Hindi signboards and innovas with Maharashtra registration. That's the least they could have paid attention to. Bleh

well. i was reading a newspaper report where it said that the market of Mani Majra was converted into a mini pakistan for the movie.

turns out... i was referring to another movie.

Zero Dark Thirty features Mani Majra as Abbotabad.

Talking about Bigelow's film, Subhash Saria, president of Manimajra Beopar Mandal, says, "It does not bother us that the film revolves around a dreaded terrorist and our locality is portrayed as Pakistan. We feel proud to be a part of a Hollywood venture, that too by a well-known director. Though they changed the boards on our shops and the interiors, we can recognize our shops. And, we will see many of our fellow shop-keepers in the film."

Recalling the experience of the shoot and how their lives and surroundings changed, Mahesh Garg, who had then passed by his shop without recognizing it, says, "I came to the market one morning and could not figure out the place. People in costumes resembling those in Pakistan were teeming in the area. There were burqa-clad women and men in skull-caps walking around."

The plot had so much potential but they screwed it. Saw game change last night. Should I open another thread for that?

Tapatalk search is crap. So can't make out whether there is a thread on zero dark thirty. Planning to watch it today. Hope it is as gripping as the reviews.
