BWW Reviews: HOW I BECAME A PIRATE Offers Swashbuckling Delight
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Sep 23, 2014

Almost all children (and not a few adults) have a fascination with all things piratical, and the musical HOW I BECAME A PIRATE, currently in production at Columbia Children's Theatre through September 28, yields plenty of material to indulge that fascination. This fun offering, written by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, based on the popular children's book of the same name by Melinda Long, has plenty to engage children and also keep their parents smiling broadly throughout the approximate one-hour running time. Young children will take this fantastic journey into the world of (not-so-scary) pirates at face value, perhaps even responding directly to the actors, while their older siblings and adults will appreciate the sly humor and send-up of buccaneer lore.

Dr. Kalyan's PIRATES OF BOLLYWOOD, a Thrilling Legal Adventure in Bombay, Available for Pre-Order
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Dr. Kalyan's second law thriller novel in his Intellectual Property Fiction series has just been released for pre-order on Apple IBooks and Kobo. A legal adventure set in Bombay, the novel takes the reader through a gripping tale of film production, piracy and pillage. Unwittingly drawn into a violent war between producers and pirates, Arjun, a young, blind lawyer, goes on a wild goose chase in the city of dreams. Film producers, record labels, and software companies have been grappling with copyright piracy for a very long time. Several research studies have concluded that losses from piracy to various creative industries are in billions of dollars. A recent study of he Indian Chamber of Commerce estimates losses from piracy in India to be more than a billion dollars. Many scholars have also established strong linkages between piracy, terrorism and organized crime. In this backdrop, Dr. Kalyan's "Pirates of Bollywood," fictionalizes and dramaticizes the ongoing war between producers, pirates and police. Arjun, the protagonist from Dr. Kalyan's first work, "Road Humps and Sidewalks," a drug patent thriller, gets drawn into a fierce war between producers and pirates, spurring him to unravel The Pirate puzzle. The novel is the first of its kind in the legal fiction genre. Talking about his second novel, Dr. Kalyan said, "Piracy is a way of life in India. Against the odds of stringent laws, and enforcement systems, the piracy business manages to survive and prosper. I have always wondered if there is much more in piracy than meets the eye. 'Pirates of Bollywood' gives wings to some of my wild conspiracy theories about the linkages between piracy, film production and crime." Dr. Kalyan Kankanala is a leading Intellectual Property attorney in India, and manages the largest new age Intellectual Property (IP) Firm, BananaIP Counsels. He also consults for United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), and teaches at premier institutions such as National Law School and Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. Dr. Kalyan's law thrillers are aimed at taking IP knowledge to the public, and encouraging debates on socially relevant IP themes.

Acclaimed a feast for thriller enthusiasts, Kalyan's earlier work, a patent law thriller, Road Humps and Sidewalks had received great reviews. The said novel is also available on IBooks and other platforms for free download for the benefit of interested readers. Dr. Kalyan's second legal thriller, "Pirates of Bollywood," takes the reader through an adventurous journey of Arjun, a blind lawyer, and Helen, a committed cop, as they chase pirates in Mumbai, the seat of Bollywood. Converging police action and legal drama, the novel unfolds the story of piracy, never told before. It packs court room drama, pirate emotions, film production challenges, and mafia wars in a nail biting narrative. Knowledge of copyright law, insight into affairs of the Indian film industry, and the unseen piracy chain, are packed in The Pirate tale, not too far removed from reality. Talking about his work, Dr. Kalyan said, "Piracy has always been a problem for film and music producers, and will continue to be so. Many have tried to crack the intricate piracy puzzle, and have failed miserably. The object of pirates, from those on high seas to those in the digital world, have a common thread, plunder and prosper. My 'Pirates of Bollywood' is a pirate story, a story of people, who live amongst us, a story that pervades every day life in India, and a story that underscores most films we watch. I hope you will enjoy reading it." A peek into "Pirates of Bollywood" is available on Apple IBooks, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.
