Dev Patel’s New ‘Film’

October 28, 2010 1:04 pm by

The Last Airbender was mauled by critics, some of whom called it the worst movie epic ever, so Dev “Slumdog Millionaire” Patel will be happy to know that his latest film has been better received. Okay so the film in question is a seven-and-a-half-minute short that’s really an extended advertisement for Nokia’s new smarthone, the N8. The Commuter was shot in just four days, using only the N8. The film, an action-packed affair in which Patel has to escape the wrath of a sadistic traffic warden and parkour-trained bankers, includes a blink-and-miss appearance from former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick. There is, as yet, no launch date for the Nokia N8 in India, but the company is already taking pre-orders for the phone, priced at Rs26,259.
