Kashmiri film Shepherds of Paradise (Director Raja Shabir Khan) which won the Best Non feature film award at the recent 60th National Film Awards is the 16th film of Indian Panorama by direct entry.

Lucknow Central...Script of convenience

Poster Boys: Old-fashioned entertainer

Poster Boys is a remake of the 2014 Marathi film, Poshter Boyz. A comedy, the film also carries a social message for men to go for vasectomy as there was no shame in doing so while also not forcing only women to take that responsibility.

Previous releases continue to rule box office as new releases fail

This has been another week of disappointments. Two new releases in Ajay Devgn starrer Baadshaho and Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh mangal Saavdhan, have failed to meet the expectations. Though the films opened with poor response, both got the advantage of Saturday being a Bakra Eid holiday.
