A complete movie experience

It’s entertaining while it’s emotional. It’s funny while it’s serious. This movie will be remembered for generations to come and will go down in history books as a display of both the cultural and financial prowess of cinema


A tale of hope and courage

The novel might have been written for 10- to 12-year-olds, but adult readers will find it as engaging. It will kind of remind you of Nick Hornby’s ‘About a Boy’ but with its own unique aspects


A partition story for modern times

A tragic tale of six people whose lives are thrown asunder by India-Pakistan partition, Kalank offers a magnificent visual spectacle that transports us back in time to the 1940’s India
