Dia

Dia is the story of…..no I am not revealing anything about the story because I don’t want to spoil your movie watching experience. The story is not novel for the most parts but it leaves you in a territory where you will not expect it to. The screenplay is usually the beauty of the films from South. They really know how to tell stories,. . Read More…

Set in the 90s, Gantumoote traces the journey of a young teenage girl right from experiencing her first crush, to secretly blushing while seeing her crush, to her first touch and the problems which any girl would go through at her age.

C U Soon follows the story of Jimmy who enters the world of online dating only to find out one day that his partner goes missing.

Street Dancer as the name suggests is a dance film with a fixed template – underdogs-rivals-conflict-dance competition-no prizes for guessing the end!

Halal Love Story is a story of certain members of a village that come together to make a tele-film that is permissive(Halal) to their community.

Middle Class Melodies is the story of a small town boy Raghava who along with his family runs a small eatery in his village but has dreams of shifting base to a nearby city and open a restaurant there.

The vibe here is.. Read More…
