It is expected to be one of the most prominent award ceremonies in the world, attracting film stars, producers and glitterati from Hollywood, Bollywood, Kollywood, Honkytonkywood, overshadowing other international award ceremonies such as the Hollywood Oscars, Hammy (best ham actor), Emmy, Grammy (best grandmother), Bafta, Tony (Tony Roma, best Steaks), Cannes (best tin cans), Bata (best school shoes), Buntutsan Awards (best bad ass racist journo) and the like.

Here are the first of 5 nominations for best local motion picture award for the 2010 DAMN Oscars:

Very Nice Taxi Driver

This is a magnificent noir fantasy about the daily struggles of Bangla Nepalindon, the only known citizen who also legally owns and drives his own taxi. He refuses to employ illegal immigrants or farm out his cab to part-time locals to supplement his income. Bangla NI daily astounds his passengers by switching on the lawfully calibrated taxi meter and charging them EXACTLY according to it, taking the shortest routes, dropping them off at their exact destinations or the nearest taxi stand, switching on the car radio only at customers’ request, issuing tax valid receipts and bidding them farewell with a hearty “shukria” and smile after dropping them off!! His clean taxi puts to shame the city’s 20,000 dirty public cabs which are said to be worse than public toilets and whose licences have been cornered by a Minister who denies it when questioned in Parliament.

Then one fine day, while plying the back lanes of Butterworth, Bangla NI stumbles across Shanghai Rose Chan, a PRC English Language student registered at Everise Best Emperor Shih Huang Ti English College of Excellence. Rose is harassed by a group of ne’er do well maintenance workers from the bankrupt local Penang Ferry Service Corporation. Bangla NI, a morally upright citizen to a fault is enraged and kills all the ferry workers in a massive shootout. He falls in love with Rose in the backseat of his taxicab on the way to his 1 room bedsitter where he sequesters her for her own safety lest she be arrested by the authorities and incarcerated under the ISA or deported, which would be a fate worse than death. There, he is thunderstruck and dumbfounded to discover that Rose is not exactly a Chinese student of English even though her oral skills are outstanding for one so young and innocent. She is a China Doll. They live happily ever after.

The Curious Case of Many Good Men
At a Royal Commission of Inquiry, a mousy, vindictive, rebuffed, confirmed spinster lesbian secretary, Saucy Chili Padi Sita, falsely accuses her lawyer employer Ghandhi Mandela Lingam of subverting the true course of justice by bribing a Chief Justice and 11 other Judges of the Federal Court. Doctored airline tickets, fake cheque book stubs, touched up photographs of the CJ and Justices holidaying at the Auckland Zoo and in chalets and nightclubs in Geneva are tendered at the RCI and posted scurrilously on the internet.
Watch the courtroom drama unfold as Ghandhi Mandela Lingam corretcly, corretcly, corretcly, aided and abetted by lone courageous Attorney General Ganesh Patel, battles inhuman odds to clear his name and that of the many good men, the justices. In a climactic courtroom scene the verdict is received in an atmosphere of stunned silence, disbelief and awe as Ghandhi Mandela Lingam thunders “You can’t handle the truth! We didn't do anything wrong. We not only have some of the finest lawyers in this country, we also have some judges money alone cannot buy - the BEST kind!!” The justices are reborn and rejuvenated as they once again go about their duties with Einstein child like curiosity and wonder!

A Streetcar Named Desireroton
Local car co Desireroton Motors faces Chapter 11 closure of its monopoly business. Desireroton Motors Founder and CEO, Mahaleela Kutty Firaun Arif then plays his brilliant ace in the hole, the AP (Approved Permit) card to thwart stiff Japanese, German, American and Italian attempts to re-colonize the local motor industry and the nation.
But despite strict closed open negotiated tender procedures all the AP’s (sold at $40,000 per whack) are colonized by 4 local Auto Czars due to a slight oversight by the Ministry of Transport which scurrilously shifts blame to a totally innocent Minister. Watch tears the size of crocodiles overflow as the embattled Minister is eventually sacked and then demonstrates the tenacity of a Virgin Iron Lady to clear her name in this moving human interest story of a world kelisa conspiracy, big biz and sex discrimination of second among equals!!
