Machel Mon­tano’s de­but movie, Bazodee, will soon be shown in 250 cin­e­mas across the United States. Bazodee, which pre­miered at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Fes­ti­val last Septem­ber, will be re­leased for US au­di­ences on Au­gust 5, 2016. The movie, a tale of love that rises be­yond cul­tural dif­fer­ences, stars Mon­tano, Bol­ly­wood star Kabir Bedi, Game of Thrones ac­tor Staz Nair, Trini-born, UK-based ac­tor Valmike Ram­per­sad and British ac­tress Natali Per­era, who plays Mon­tano’s love in­ter­est, Anita.

The movie was writ­ten by Bar­ba­dian screen­writer Clare Ince and pro­duced by Todd Kessler and Trinidad-born pro­ducer An­cil McKain.

The re­lease will fol­low an of­fi­cial pre­miere at the end of July in New York. BAZODEE tells the story of Anita (Natalie Per­era), the du­ti­ful daugh­ter of a deepin-debt busi­ness­man (Kabir Bedi), who is about to marry a wealthy Lon­doner (Staz Nair), when a chance en­counter with a lo­cal singer, Lee de Leon (Machel Mon­tano) sets things askew.

There are sparks, nat­u­rally, but Anita re­fuses to ac­knowl­edge them, fo­cus­ing in­stead on play­ing match­maker to a con­stantly bick­er­ing, se­cretly-in-love cou­ple: her sar­cas­tic cousin Poorvi and her un­der­achiev­ing fu­ture brother-in-law, Partiv. Of course, no one can see these sworn en­e­mies are made for each one ex­cept Lee who vows to unite the two. Anita is skep­ti­cal that Lee, the newly ar­rived stranger, can pull off a feat she's been try­ing to ac­com­plish for years. When he suc­ceeds in trans­form­ing the fight­ers into love birds through a lit­tle cre­ative Cupidry, how­ever, Anita's moved by his ro­man­tic gifts and de­cides she wants to be with him, just once, be­fore she en­ters a love­less mar­riage for the sake of her fa­ther's fu­ture.

BAZODEE is a Bol­ly­wood style Caribbean mu­si­cal about be­ing true to your­self and hon­est in love at all costs.

Baz’oh’dee (Adj. Trinida­dian Slang): A state of dizzi­ness or con­fu­sion— of­ten used with re­gards to love or in­fat­u­a­tion.
