SYNOPSIS: 

Driven by jealously, TAMEER THE TERRIBLE wants to overthrow his twin brother, the MAHARAJAH of Quodoon. Tameer plans to steal a nuke and blackmail him into giving up his crown. Sensing opportunity, Army Commander, Brig. WACKFORD KOODLE hatches his own plot. Koodle aims to thwart Tameer, seize the nuke himself, and install himself as the power in Quodoon.

 

Koodle gets more than he bargained for when to carry out his scheme, he taps Crown secret agent and Bollywood movie star, ABU ABU. The unflappable Abu teams up with FAARIA, a beautiful Cambridge educated, entrepreneur. Ingenious and imaginative, they outfox both Tameer and Koodle, and save the Maharajah from devious skullduggery.

 

The family black sheep, Tameer’s real goal in life is respect. He’s already rich and famous – but for robbing banks. Tameer cannot abide the idea of being a small time crook. He decides that going big time requires that he posture himself as a terrorist and kidnapper. But he’s a lousy terrorist and his irrepressible kidnap victim, TIFFANY, proves that kidnapping is risky business.

 

Tameer and Koodle each pull out all the stops to get the nuke, which the arms dealer, BLACK PHOENIX smuggles into Quodoon. With hip music by 2 Academy, 2 Grammy’s Award winner A.H. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 hours, Elizabeth the Golden Age, Million Dollar Arm), COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE - A COMEDY is a fast-paced, witty romantic musical comedy about self-discovery and the price for achieving it, and pays homage to the Bollywood extravaganza.
