Thirty Years old , alive and beautiful woman, who loves so many things in life like dancing , Singing, watching series ,movies and documentaries, Writing life experiences, Traveling new places , cooking new dishes and a Software Engineer by Profession.
I am avid movie buff with interest in all kinds of genre. I personally like movies that are mind bending and twisting, compelling me to draw a perspective on life beyond what is routine to most of us. I like to dissect characters that are uncommon, unique and brings value to me personally and to society.
I am an anchor for corporate, celebrity and sports events since the last decade having hosted more than 2000 shows for some of the biggest brands of the world with famous personalities like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Salman Khan, MS Dhoni, Sushant Singh Rajput, Rana Daggubati, Sonu Sood, Aayushman Khurrana, Vidya Balan, Rahul Dravid, Kapil Dev & more. I have been the official emcee for multiple sports leagues like the IPL, ISL, PBL, T20 Mumbai. Travel has always been a way of life & I’ve been lucky to have travelled to 48 countries for work & otherwise. I prefer staying at home in my free time, reading, cooking or writing articles. I believe in putting any talent to use for the betterment of people & society. For the same I curated an initiative called No One Sleeps Hungry in the 2020 lockdown & raised 5 lakhs in a month towards the fundraiser where I managed to distribute rations to NGO’s & about a 1000 families. I strongly believe in a quote my mother has always told me which says that ‘Your network is your true Net Worth’.
Family, Friends, Films, Food & Farvanu! The perfect combo and the perfect day! Puzzles and stories in any shape and form, has always been what I’ve loved. This is what kickstarted my love for movies. I’m a fan of English, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu movies as of now! Always ready to expand into more languages 😁 Just hate sad endings and really scared by horror (but supremely curious about the stories none the less).
A sports analyst who is a big movie buff. Yes, I haven’t watched it all but wish to watch as many.
Rishte mein toh hum tumhare baap lagte hai..naam hai Muqaddar ka Sikandar. Mogambo khush hua bola I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse. Jawab aya, Are you talking to me? Suar ke baccho, khopdi tod saale ka!! Haar ke jeetne wale ko, I am Groot! Here’s looking at you kid, go ahead make my day, tum humko 3 guna lagaan dega. Say Hello to my little friend, ae Kancha saala banduk bhi dikhata hai aur piche bhi hatta hai…haaiiii!! Bade bade shehro mein aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai, Mr. Robinson you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you? Here’s Johnny and jo darr gaya samjho mar gaya.
So this, right here, this is about me where cinema stays in me.
Lopa is a writer and editor with a penchant for daydreaming about what she should be writing instead of actually writing it. Instead of liking something like your average person, her current obsession (until she ends up hating it) is 60s dystopic science-fiction which seems closer to reality every day.
I am a Consultant by profession and Cinephile by choice. My favourite pass time is actually watching movies and series. I can be hooked up to tv 24*7 without getting bored or even feeling a need to socialize with someone other than virtual people. I do breakfast with Netflix, lunch with Hotstar and Dinner with Amazon Prime.
Born and raised in Kuwait, I never let geography come in the way of my love for Bollywood. I love films as well as the whole process of filmmaking and entertainment, which is why I started my own platform in 2018 called “Popcorn Pixel” which aims to bring together cinema-enthusiasts like myself. Besides films I love to write fiction, try new cuisines and dream about learning skydiving and horse-riding (hopefully I’ll get around to it someday !)
Parul as she rightly says, is an explorer of happiness. She believes in doing only those things which makes her happy which includes but is not limited to creativity, painting, travelling, blogging, reviewing. She is a food lover and writes reviews of pure veg restaurants.
When comes to entertainment choice of genres includes the one based on survival, self-reliance, eroticism and competitions.
“We are all stories in the end, let’s be a good one”.
I am a full time Learning consultant and a part time writer who also loves reading and traveling. My journey with writing started subconsciously before it could be a reality on paper. I woke up one Saturday and just started writing (it’s true) and haven’t stopped since. Of course, I am still finding myself and writing provides a solace in the chaos. I now write short stories, poetry, and latest movie reviews! Catch me on medium.
Personally, I am a social introvert and love engaging in conversations about ideas, places, or history. Some recent changes in lifestyle have moved me towards fitness and mindfulness. I try to be better than yesterday each day and I wish years later if people remember me, ‘They smile and say, oh she was a good one’. I am a feeler and perform all things from my heart rather than brain. A simple soul who takes pleasure in both simple and grand schemes of life. Not a planner and allow life to take me places!
I believe in this song, “I am the hero of the story. Don’t need to be saved”.
Puja Miri Yajnik
Puja Miri Yajnik grew up in the small hill town of Shillong in the northeast of India. Unsurprisingly, she excelled in the subject of English at school; this resulted in her taking an early interest in fiction writing, with a particular fondness for historical romances. Thus, she has been writing novels and short stories for many years, her previous work including ‘Two Friends: Cloudy and Windy’, ‘The Curse of the Winwoods’ and ‘My Strange Duke’. In addition to her aptitude for English, she possesses a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, thus giving her a deep understanding of the human mind which she consistently applies when writing her characters. Having lived in both India and the United Kingdom, she possesses an extensive knowledge of both cultures and often incorporates said knowledge into her works. From the sparsely populated tranquility of Shillong to the hustle and bustle of London, she has truly seen all sorts of environments, thus inspiring her to merge them together in romantic tales of travel, friendship, love, mystery and self-discovery.
I am a happy soul, with a nostalgic heart and I love new Stories…
I am a passionate film fan who enjoys cinema from different parts of the world. If you’re talking about someone that knows every movie you describe by naming that one scene or a few actors along with the plot, that’s how I describe myself.
I am Saket. Indian at heart. I’m currently living in Germany, studying computational engineering to get my master’s degree. I like to spend my weekends traveling across Germany or Europe with my friends. Discovering new food, castles and random short hiking trails is always fun with friends around. When I am by myself, I watch anime, films and listen to music most of the time. I like to read art-associated blogs, articles online and follow podcasts on YouTube. They always help me learn to notice details I otherwise would not because of my non-arts background. A little bit of gaming and tech enthusiast if time allows. And of course, writing here is a great outlet to share what I love (and sometimes don’t love) to anyone looking beyond mainstream cinema. If you like my recommendations feel free to write me on social media for extended conversations and coffee!

I am a professional working in the field of Acquiring films. I also have a food channel on YouTube. I am talkative, curious, impatient and therefore usually finish watching most of the series in a day or two. I am one of those who have grown up watching Ekta Kapoor shows and no regret honestly. I appreciate her for her exceptional entrepreneur skills. I still sometimes watch daily soaps. Love binge watching Korean shows and Pakistani dramas. Exploring the South Indian film industry off lately and completely in love with the cinema produced down there. My job requires me to have in depth knowledge about cinema in general and I am extremely passionate about my work. My favorite show is FRIENDS. I take it personally if someone dislikes that show. Like, common bitch lets fight!! Also, an avid reader. My favorite authors are Khalid Hosseni, Nicholas Sparks, Jane Eyre, Sidney Sheldon and Dan Brown. My favorite novels are The kite Runner and Gone with the Wind. The films that I have enjoyed the most are Pursuit of Happiness, A walk to remember, Avengers End Game (don’t judge) and most of Amir Khan’s film post 2000.

Professionally, I work on ways to make things go faster. But in real life I like to take it slow. A very good listener. Fun and a wee bit crazy. Hater of small talk. I love reading (most friction) and writing and ofcourse watching movies and series. Writing helps me unwind and gives me a medium to vent out many a thoughts inside my Aquarian mind. I write about everything and nothing (and sometimes reviews). I write because I have promised myself to keep this little writer alive in me.
