At the time of when TV channels are showing similar new movie titles in syndication deals with film distributors, the first telecast of a movie plays an important in enticing new viewers.
Colors has scheduled the following three new movies to be telecast first on its channel:

The channel recently screened ‘Blue’ first in the UK and will now be followed with a telecast on NDTV Imagine this weekend. The above movie titles are also being syndicated with B4U Movies, NDTV Imagine, ZEE Network and Channel 4.
