UTV ActionMUMBAI: UTV Action, known to bring premiere Hollywood action content to its viewers, presents the Hindi language premier of blockbuster film 'Zombieland' dubbed in Hindi for the very first time on Indian television as 'Movie of the Month' on May 26 at 8.45pm.

'Zombieland' is an action comedy movie with horror. The story is about the mutated strain of mad cow disease that has turned most humans into cannibalistic zombies within two months after the initial outbreak. Unaffected loner college student 'Columbus' is attempting to make his way to Columbus, Ohio to see whether his parents are still alive, more out of a sense of obligation than any real concern. Along a stretch of highway, he meets 'Tallahassee', another wandering survivor who seems driven solely by his desire to find 'Twinkies'. The duo meets up with 'Wichita' and 'Little Rock', two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos. Reluctant partners in the battle against the undead, all four soon begin to wonder if it might be better to simply take their chances alone.

Manasi SapreCommenting on the movie of the month, Manasi Sapre, director programming and acquisition, Movie Channels, UTV, said, "Zombieland is a spectacularly shot, action packed laugh riot filled with spoof after spoof of zombie movie genre norms. Starring Jesse Eisenberg of 'Social Network' fame with Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone - 'Zombieland' takes clues from cult movies and ensures chuckles, shivers and guffaws alike in a maddening concoction of violence and humour."
