Celebrating 50 Golden years of Zeenat Aman through her wonderful means of “Cinema” , Iconic songs that had kept us entertained all this years. “Also am privileged , that got opportunity to work with Diva as Assistant Director in forthcoming movie “Black Currency” which is due for release this year.”, Priyanka Raina says
Zeenat Aman ‘s most memorable songs that would make you fall in Love completely would by YEH MAUSAM AUR YEH DOORI from the movie Roti Kapda aur Makaan , DUM MAARO DUM from Hare Rama Hare Krishna, AAP JAISA KOI MERI ZINDAGI MEIN AAYE from Qurbani, and how can we forget legendary SATYAM SHIVAM SUNDARAM by Raj Kapoor where the Diva was immortalized as pure Diva. Also LAILA MAIN LAILA from “Qurbani” turned the Diva into official “Laila”
That she remains a trendsetter is doubtless. Zeenat Aman, 69, has spent over 50 years in cinema. Winner of the Femina Miss India pageant and the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant in 1970, Aman, daughter of screenwriter Aman (“Mughal-E-Azam”) and a Maharashtrian Hindu mother, first appeared in the international film “The Evil Within” (1970) opposite Dev Anand, but the film never released in India.

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.”

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.
Watch (Video)Review of MAASSAB
Review : Director Aditya Om has shown a “Powerful” message of educating in rural areas is a very simple and sober way.
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

“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.
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.

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 .
Basically Story of “Nail Polish’ revolves around court room drama which is based on High profile victim ‘Veer Singh’ who is accused on murder of children, and High profile lawyer comes to fight his case is Arjun Rampal. Story is simple Veer overcomes an accident due to which he has memory loss and becomes “Charu Raina”.
Now who is Charu Raina , mystery opens when Veer is tested on narcotics by Doctors to say truth. Truth is even more bitter as opens on Charu Raina in Kashmir where a guy named “Ranjit” had met 10 years back.
