JIO MAMI VISION 2015

The Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival With Star India is an inclusive movie feast. We showcase the latest cutting-edge, independent cinema – art house fare alongside genre movies from Bollywood and Hollywood and cult international movies. We offer the best of world cinema to the people of Mumbai and we offer the best of Indian cinema to the world. The festival is run by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image popularly known as MAMI. This is a space where we revel in the sheer pleasure of cinema, the joy it gives us and how much it enhances our lives. The goal is to nurture and ignite a passion for movies. We want Jio MAMI to be shorthand for excellence in cinema.

ABOUT JIO MAMI

Mumbai – the financial capital of India is also the epicentre of the Indian film industry. The city plays such a major role in production and dissemination of Indian films and television programmes that it is widely known by its acronym ‘Bollywood’. In 1997, a group of film industry stalwarts headed by late Hrishikesh Mukherjee founded the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) as a not-for-profit Trust. Their main objective was to organise an annual International Film Festival which the film industry and the country could be proud of. MAMI has been organising the festival for the last 16 years and aims to foster a climate of good cinema. MAMI engages people from all walks of life across the city and country who enjoy and love good cinema. It is Mumbai’s only film festival that is entirely created and run by film professionals and a group of members from corporate India. Appreciation of good cinema, stripped off all the limiting labels of art and commercial, can only come about through exposure to the best of films the world has to offer. The Festival is the first step in that direction.

In their Mission Statement in 1997, the MAMI Board of Trustees said, “We feel it is the need of the hour to disseminate and inculcate good cinema among Indian audiences. The only way to achieve this is to celebrate cinema by hosting an International Film Festival in Mumbai, India ‘s film and entertainment capital. MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Image) is committed to start Mumbai’s first independent international film festival organized by practicing film makers.”

Pankaj Kapur- Sanah Kapur share a special bond

Father- daughter relationship always is very unique and special bond. For a father, his daughter is always her little princess whom he loves and cares no matter how old she gets. The same goes to with Sanah Kapur and his daddy dearest Pankaj Kapur.

Sanah Kapur (2)  Sanah Kapur (1)

The legendary actor  Pankaj Kapur who is portraying the role of  Sanah and Alia’s possessive father in reel life in movie Shandaar shares the same traits in real life too!

An insider informs that as soon as Pankaj Kapur came to know about her daughter’s debut in Shaandaar, he was thrilled yet skeptical at the same time. It is known that during the shoots Pankaj Kapur used to be quite concerned about Sanah’s surroundings but at the same time he gave Sanah the space to be herself. The protective father also used to be a supportive one by complementing Sanah when she enacted a scene well. While this was the father’s side, the daughter was also shared the similar traits. A source close to Sanah revealed that whenever Pankaj Kapur enacted any emotional role with Alia, Sanah would come to him after the scene and used to adorably tell his father that “Nice shot dad, but you are just my daddy”!

When asked Sanah about this scenario, she said in a very shy manner, “Yes, Dad and Mom both are possessive about me and so I am I for them. Though they were very happy that I achieved my dream of entering Bollywood on my own feet, there was still a bit concern and caring. There is a lot of pressure and nervousness since I belong to a family of great and renowned actors and have to live up to it, so i hope I have lived up to everyone’s expectations and really looking forward for it.

Sanah has already been showered with a lot of thumbs ups with her song ‘Gulabo’ and many are looking forward to watching her on big screen. But her most treasured appreciation came from her father when he said he was proud to see her perform so well. An appreciation so strong coming from Pankaj Kapur is surely a very big deal!

We all look forward to see Gulabo a.k.a Sanah Kapur steal our hearts on the 22nd of October on the big screen! You go girl!

What aspired him to enter  the Indian film industry?

‘In my childhood I had the aspiration for Dance. But did not have the sources and had to continue my studios. Somehow I did matriculation. To make both ends meet owing to paucity of funds, started giving tuitions to the 10th standard students to earn and to keep the bonfire of my house burning.  My aspiration to become something in my chosen career in the film industry took me to Delhi where I had the opportunity to meet a known film director Mr. A.K.Sharma  and was lucky to get a break as a Choreographer.

Later met Ms.Raman Cheema, the Makeup artist, who took me to Chandigarh to meet Mr. Rajesh Sharma a film director who gave me a break as an Assistant Director in his Punjabi film. In the year 2005 floated my own film production house as J.K.Films India and released 2500 Music Videos. “U.P. to Bihar” was my first album as a director, second was  “Aye Shama Tu Chale” and my third Album was “Deewana” for which I had entrusted the Music composing of a song to today’s highly popular Music Director Ankit Tiwari, the “Aashique 2”, “Singham Returns” and “Mr X” fame. With pride I wish to state I was the person to give the 1st break to Ankit  Tiwari who was a mere keyboard player for his own Jagran programmes in Kanpur U.P. and today he is the most popular and sought after Music Director.

Which is your first assignment in Mumbai?

It has been a long struggle from 2000 in Kanpur to 2014 Miumbai to make my mark and fulfill my aspirations and ambitions as a director.It give me pride that during the making of HARRAA The Revenge of that I also choreographed all the songs myself since it was my childhood aspiration for dance.

HARRAA The Revenge of Death is scheduled for 2015 end release and it is the hopes of Aradhana Gupta, the producer and Ramesh Katheria, director that the film will be received well and the audience will acceptit as a good horror film.

ABOUT JIO MAMI

Mumbai – the financial capital of India is also the epicentre of thevenue-1 film industry. The city plays such a major role in production and dissemination of Indian films and television programmes that it is widely known by its acronym ‘Bollywood’. In 1997, a group of film industry stalwarts headed by late Hrishikesh Mukherjee founded the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) as a not-for-profit Trust. Their main objective was to organise an annual International Film Festival which the film industry and the country could be proud of. MAMI has been organising the festival for the last 16 years and aims to foster a climate of good cinema. MAMI engages people from all walks of life across the city and country who enjoy and love good cinema. It is Mumbai’s only film festival that is entirely created and run by film professionals and a group of members from corporate India. Appreciation of good cinema, stripped off all the limiting labels of art and commercial, can only come about through exposure to the best of films the world has to offer. The Festival is the first step in that direction.

In their Mission Statement in 1997, the MAMI Board of Trustees said, “We feel it is the need of the hour to disseminate and inculcate good cinema among Indian audiences. The only way to achieve this is to celebrate cinema by hosting an International Film Festival in Mumbai, India ‘s film and entertainment capital. MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Image) is committed to start Mumbai’s first independent international film festival organized by practicing film makers.”

Dillzan Wadia is a Bollywood actor from Baroda GUJARAT

Dillzan Wadia is a Bollywood actor from Baroda GUJARAT and is well-known for his work in the movie Let’s Change which is on Narendra Modi Swachh Bharat campaign. He was also seen in Films like Bollywood villa, Sharfoshi and Phir ek Shazish.

dilzan wadia1Filmwalaexp

Dilzan wadia has struggled since childhood to get big into Bollywood. He left his hometown Baroda when he was just 14 and struggled a lot to get recognized in the industry, he also had few bad experiences in the industry, but somehow he had his hopes high and ability to keep moving. He is not a start son nor he has any godfather in the industry, he is by himself.

He might be the only actor who does everything by his own, from the story, Music, Direction, pri-production, production, shooting, post- production, media, distrusting and till the release at the theaters, every little thing is under his head.

Dillzan says I have never shot without tension and thoughts, while shooting I have 100 of things in mind, still I do well and give my best, though now I have my brother’s help who is soon entering as a Director and co producer in the next project and so I will be a bit relaxed, As I said before I have no godfather in the industry nor I am a star son and to establish and prove myself I had no option but to start my own production house.

Many a times if you are a star son or if u have a god father it becomes easy to get a break but that does not mean you will surely gain success, all depends on you and how much you are appreciated by public, if people like your acting you will surely Rock. I did not have any such godfather but I knew one thing if I get a good chance to prove myself I can definitely Rock.

10th October 2015 Mumbai:  She came, she conquered and she ruled all over again! The gorgeous diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who returned back on the big screen after a hiatus of 5 years, has proved to each that she is back with a bang!  Making her comeback movie in Sanjay Gupta’ Jazbaa, Aishwarya was seen playing a never seen before role of a lawyer, holding back the audience with her strong acting skills and powerful performance

Aishwarya’s magic has not only convinced the audience but even the media have highly appreciated her talent. From the web-world to the virtual world, Aishwarya has stunned one and all!

DABBOO_AISHWARYA_9683-3Filmwalaexp

A review from the leading Bollywood Critic, Taran Adarsh stated “Aishwarya makes a stunning impact, conveying a gamut of emotions [grief, strong-willed, determined] with aplomb. Finest work so far”

A review from leading newspaper of India, TOI stated “Aishwarya is rusty at the start but eventually takes charge of the dual aspects of her character. Aishwarya has made a judicious screen choice after that five-year hiatus!”

A review from leading Bollywood online website Pinkvilla said “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has chosen her comeback film well. This isn’t a vanity project for her and she adopts her challenging part with such gravitas, well for a large part, that it is hard to believe the actress is emerging fresh from a five-year long hiatus”.

Another review from Bollywoodlife.com stated “Clearly the film belongs to Aishwarya. She manages to make Anuradha believable from the very first frame. Even though there are moments when she has to ramp up the drama quotient, screech, scream, show her theatrics, there is a sense of confidence with which she builds up her character. We relate to her pain not only because she’s lost her daughter, but her constant struggle to suspend the very values and beliefs she upholds is what makes Anuradha endearing. Gupta gives her a canvas where she shows a range that perhaps no other director has been able to capture”

A review from another popular Bollywood news portal, Glamsham.com, stated “Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan coming on screen after GUZAARISH makes a strong statement with her impeccable performance. She balances well the role of a tough lawyer and a mother. It is she and Irrfan Khan who move the story forward. Their intensity catches you off guard and their underlying love nudges at your heart.”

If numbers speak more than statements then it is known that Jazbaa has already collected 4.23crs on its day 1 in India the coming days are said to be very strong too. On the overseas front, the response is said to be superb with close to 1million dirham in just 2 days from Middle East alone!”
