The COVID-19 crisis placed a huge burden on people’s mental and physical health and well-being across various age groups. The year 2020 was therefore one of change, reckoning, transformation, and shift towards a better lifestyle. Taking this biggest learning forward, some of India’s biggest names have come together to offer one-year of free yoga and mindfulness for a healthier 2021 with SARVA, India’s fastest growing yoga-based wellness ecosystem.

In a fun and insightful discussion Co-Founders of SARVA & Diva Yoga Sarvesh Shashi, and Malaika Arora along with investors Shikhar Dhawan and Aishwaryaa R Dhanush discussed the benefits of yoga and the impact that it has had on them all through 2020. 

Sarvesh Shashi, Founder, SARVA and Diva Yoga, said, “2020 has been a year of fight, acceptance and gratitude for almost everyone across the world. Continuous evolution became a way of life as the times challenged us. On one hand as we closed most of our studios, we believe that digital health and wellness will be the cornerstones of our life in the years ahead as reinforced by the recent pandemic. The practice of yoga can go a long way in helping us stay fit both mentally and physically. I have undergone a 360-degree transformation ever since I started practicing yoga since the age of 6 and I wish to help people reap the same benefits across the globe. Our quarter on quarter revenue growth of over 50% since our digital launch in April 2020, goes on to show the increasing need for yoga in our lives. It was also heartening to see positive sentiments of users towards what we are doing and that the future prospects for both SARVA and yoga-based health & wellness look promising”

Malaika Arora, Co-founder, SARVA and Diva Yoga, said, “Yoga is holistic in nature and is one of the best mechanisms for overall physical, mental & emotional health! I’ve disciplined myself for the last 25 years and have learned so much in that time through Yoga. I’ve discovered that the body responds positively to nutritious food and wholesome experiences. I truly believe that the benefits of yoga aren’t just skin deep. The limitless power it possesses can be wielded with more additions like a satvik diet and simple breathing techniques that can literally rejuvenate one’s self in minutes. The pandemic has reinforced why it was one of the best decisions to have inculcated yoga into my routine and the SARVA app has been my enabler.” 

Shikhar Dhawan, Cricketer and Investor SARVA said, “As a sportsperson, good physical and mental health are extremely important for me. Yoga has helped me stay in my top form ever since I started this practice and has been a companion during the pandemic in more ways than one. Better immunity, a calm mind, and holistic wellness are all need of the hour. Yoga offers many benefits in this regard and SARVA with its new app is bringing this practice into the mainstream for millennials.

Aishwaryaa R Dhanush, Director and Investor, SARVA said, “I am extremely focused on my physical and mental composition. Yoga is my ‘go-to’ method for keeping myself in a healthy space at all times. During the pandemic when I spent all my time at home and had to maintain a balance between my kids and work, it is yoga that helped me maintain the equilibrium. There are so many benefits for the body and mind and depending on individual needs. I always find the right yoga and mindfulness content on the SARVA app. Even when I travel due to work or recreation, I make it a point to practice yoga every day.”

SARVA recently relaunched its app in an all-new version  with over 1500 hours of Yoga and mindfulness content which makes it probably the largest content bank for a yoga app in the country. The app has yoga modules across various categories like Therapy, Restorative Yoga, Traditional Indian authentic forms of yoga, Yoga for kids of all age groups, Yoga with props and more by various instructors from authentic yoga schools from India . It offers live classes 15 hours a day x 7 days a week.  Personalization has been taken a step forward with features such as goal-based program recommendations catering to people at different stages of their yoga practice (such as beginners, intermediate practitioners and advanced ones) to ensure holistic transformation of body and mind. Further, the app enables users to track their progress.

Review by : Priyanka Raina

Maassab‘ is a unique film which deals with the untouched topic of education in rural primary schools in India .

Our protagonist Ashish Kumar’s heart and soul lies in teaching and educating kids. He even left India ‘s most lucrative government job IAS to pursue this dream. His latest assignment in a far-flung backward area brings him face to face with people and forces entrenched in dogma, superstition, ignorance and corruption. Slowly by his conviction and consistency he is able to transform a village Primary school so radically that the school starts competing with the best private schools around. But some people who were swept out by this change hatch a conspiracy against him. How Ashish Kumar faces these new challenges and more importantly is he able to continue his path of spreading education and awareness is what the climax of the film reveals.

THE POWER (Review) | “Power Packed Revenge” | Vidyut Jammwal | Salil Ankola

Directed By : Mahesh Manjrekar

Cast : Vidyut Jammwal , Shruti Hassan , Prateik Babbar, Salil Ankola , Mahesh Manjrekar, Sachin Khedekar

Review by : Priyanka Raina

Lets talk about Mahesh Manjrekar previous films before we come to “THE POWER” . Like Vastaav which was unlike a hard hitting crime based Action movie. After Vastaav , Mahesh Manjrekar shows The Power to cinema.

The Power is a story of Devi (Vidyut Jammwal) and Pari (Shrut Hassan) who are madly in love with each other but as Pari is daughter of prostitute , so Devi ‘s family ‘THAKURS” are not in favor of marriage. Reason Devi decides to marry in court and is about to leave to singapore , But circumstances were something else.

On day of marriage , Devi’s Dad (Mahesh Manjrekar” was shot injured and Devi rushes to hospital instead of court. On the other hand Pari keeps waiting and as she knows she is pregnant , she is totally broken. And from here starts POWER PACKED REVENGE .

Prateik Babbar plays a negative shade in a positive role, and the Main villian (Sachin Khedekar) who plays a masterstroke in the end. Salil Ankola is just magnificent in action

My Tribute to IRRFAN KHAN on his Birthday with amazing contribution to Indian Cinema !!

“Irrfan Khan” – An actor whom we seen since childhood in early 90s with the Mega Hit seral “Chandrakanta” celebrated his Birthday on 7th Jan and then attempting to make it in Indian cinema with some magnificent Hits unlike Madari, Life in a Metro , Pan singh Tomar and many short films with Nawazzuddin Siddique in early 2000s which are all available on you tube .

My association with Irrfan Khan sir is bit in a small way , but a special way. Firstly I had dubbed for movie LIFE IN A METRO during my theater days at BR STUDIOS. Then attended screening of his movies like “Madari” , “Hindi medium” which are known as amazing contribution to Indian Cinema.

Also met Irrfan Khan at Sunny super Sound on Third floor where I had come for my edit work and Irrfan Khan sir had come for his dubbing. He was so polite and humble and just believed in his work.

KAAGAZ (Review) |Based on One liner of #JollyLLB2

Directed by : Satish Kaushik

Produced by : Salman Khan films

CAst : Satish Kaushik , Pankaj Tripathi , Mita Vashishtha

Review By : Priyanka Raina

Being a film encyclopedia , I remember all scenes registered in my brains, so don’t know If you all remember that One liner from movie JOLLY LLB 2 where Akshay Kumar fights for a alive man who was declared dead on papers.

Based on above scenario is based movie KAAGAZ where the main protagonist (Pankaj Tripathi) is declared dead by his Brothers so that they can take his property. And how he fights to get himself registered on Court papers is the rest of the story.

Watch Video review by Priyanka Raina

Review : Converting one liner of JOLLY LLLB 2 into whole movie felt too dragging. Satish Kaushik , Mita Vashishtha were good in small roles , but didn’t have much to perform.

Rating : TWO STARS

The Story ‘KAAgAZ’ produced by Salman Khan films and Directed by Satish KAUSHIK is available on ZEE 5 .

Directed by : Bugs Bhargava Krishna

The story is based on #CourtroomDrama which is based on High profile Murder charge on #VeerSingh , due to which he looses his memory and becomes #CharuRaina.

Deepak Balraj Vij talks on Incredible contribution , Journey with Actors in Indian Cinema !!

Indian Filmmaker who had introduced Ronit Roy Bose in Jaan Tere Naam , Baba Sehgal in Stuntman , and eventually became the first Director for Madhuri Dixit Nene to release her first HIT film “Sailaab” , as earlier were few of her releases but didn’t work. Meet Director Deepak Balraj Vij in a Exclusive chat on Incredible Cinema.

By Priyanka Raina

(L-R) Balraj Vij, Kishori Shahane Vij , Deepak Balraj Vij

Q. First of all, as I heard about Actor Balraj Vij , Tell some of BALRAJ VIJ films which I think also my Generation would be unaware of his films. As Even I came to know about Raj Kapoor after reading the Book “Khullam Khulla“. What a Cocktail of films. Also Am curious to know about the films acted by Balraj Vij actor .

Deepak Balraj Vij : Ya sure , My Father Balraj Vij was an Actor and was Discovered by Bimal Roy. Bimal Roy is one of the World’s most famous Director as everyone knows. Then Bimal Roy did a film called “Pehla Aadmi” which was based on the principles of Subhash Chandra Bose. The Balraj Vij did a film called “Vachchan” as main lead which was featuring Geeta Bali . The movie had this lovely song “CHANDA MAMA” , which had Music by Ravi and sung by Asha Bhosle. Then he did many films and being his son “I had a very great platform for me” to get into Cinema. My Dad never told me to be a Actor or Director, Think it was Destiny or Circumstances of impact of his movies which brought me to “Indian Cinema“.

Q. You have launched many faces like Baba Sehgal , Ronit Bose Roy and worked with Madhuri Dixit in “Sailaab” which eventually became her First HIT release. Tell of your associations.

Deepak Balraj Vij :See Cinema is such a place when anyone comes here and then everyone goes into their world of discoveries. Some go too high , Some go too low , its all Destiny and then they return with content. Baba Sehgal is a very good Rapper and music director. Aout Madhuri Dixit, what should I say and the Best part is she is natural actor.

In Sailaab , We did a song “HUMKO AAJ KAL HAI INTEZAAR ,KOI LEKE AAYE PYAR” choregraphed by Saroj Khan which Saroj ji use to show to producers that “This song is done by me” and This Hit Jodi got lots of Love with Many songs , EK DO TEEN being the iconic.

Q. Since you have introduced all Biggies of Cinema , Your son Bobby – are you planning to launch him or when can we see him in movies?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Everyone thinks as am Director , I would make film for Bobby but it’s not that way. He has made his way himself, He is one of the top Gladrags Model. Bobby has done lots of theaters and he makes his short films continuously on board. Tom he going for one big coarse to update himself in acting. Yes he will be very soon in Cinema. He knows Martial arts, Dance and all skills.

Deepak Balraj Vij, Priyanka Raina

Also to youngsters, I tell “Keep giving Auditions’ and never say no to good role, rest is your Destiny. like Shatrughan sinha became star even with that one scene. All depends on how you perform.

Q. Your Last film was MAALIK EK which I think was in 2010. And after making such big films which all are Musically Hit, what made a gap of Ten years?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Since Ten years , I have not made any film because earlier when I use to Make films – Was pretty easy. I use to announce when ever I wanted to start a film, For example want to start shooting on 10th and my infrastructure was strong by just calling up “Technical team” picture would start.

Now the biggest reason s “Distributers” and “Financer” whom I call as “Blood Suckers” , take film on 10 percent and Financer charge Two and Half percent interest on Lakh in return. Because of this many producers were in loses , Had to sell their homes to make films. Even I had to sell one of Home , well designed which I feel tell now. This all things go on , Then I thought what films to make and what I have to sell. Then I stopped and started working just as a Director.

Up to 25 films, I have directed as a Director and in all my films , Producers have earned huge profits. And even I got huge money. SO thought “why take tension” , Just be a Director and be happy. and In these Ten years , I have made lots of short Films. One of which is Made In India.

Q: Talking on Music , Music of all your films have been romantically Hit so far…

Deepak Balraj Vij : Music of all films weather “Sailaab” or “Jaan Tere Naam” or you talk on “Stuntman” is being loved, Coz I believe MUSIC is the only piece that connects with heart. and as you can see in background here too – with a soft Music. Music gives a warm sensation so I choose songs which I should feel in love first.

Q- Talking on Fans Question “Real Cinema or Commercial Cinema – Which of these give Director a major Throwback”

Deepak Balraj Vij : Good Question, see Real films are such which have real effect like when PM Rajiv Gandhi went in Bombblast – So I called up IMPPA and registered title “BOMBBLAST“. They were telling that such a incident has happened , everyone is sad and you want to register.

On this I told, “Incident has happened , I am sad and as am Filmmaker have idea in mind and if someone takes this title, Then I cannot make. I make films on real incident so this is called Realistic cinema. Now talking on Commercial films, I have given commercial Hits like Jaan Tere Naam which is totally opposite of this

Q What are your upcoming Projects in line?

Deepak Balraj Vij : My future projects are that I am directing one web series and planning to make sequel of JAAN TERE NAAM 2. That is only film I want to do as it had wonderful Music.

Q: Talking on Journalism, How would you differentiate Journalism in ancient in Todays times?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Firstly a sad news that a top most paper “Mumbai Mirror” has closed down. Now Talking on Journalism in 90s , what ever we use to share with them- They would only print that – And in return Gift give a Bottle of “Whisky” , “Conveyance” etc.

Also if outdoor shoot , some makers like Subhash Ghai would call them to shoot BY AIR , and it was all a different experience. Talking on Todays Journalism , We dont have to tell them a word, as they get matter via digital platforms. They take your information’s and check your history on Google , then by adding MASALA make a nice story. But I love Todays Journalism , Because I know once you say anything – It will take just a moment and you are on Air.

And as I can see all AWARDS on wall which you can see in video , On this Deepak Balraj VIJ says “This is in all a struggle of making 25 films , which takes a huge time”

Watch VIDEO for to see the Legacy of AWARDS of all musically Hit Films
