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.


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.”

I was born for this… Acting and achieving dreams as an actor has been by passion since childhood. I have gone through bad phases of my life but I never left the industry. I bet anybody at my place would give up. I got rejections, I got fooled by people in the industry but these were the things to learn, things did not go that good as I thought but one thing was in my mind I will never give up…

5)  What message do you wish to convey to our youngsters ? many would like to emulate your journey, what do you wish to say to them?

Well, if you trying to get into this industry .. You need  Patients.. you can’t get break immediately.. Unless u r a star son or you have a godfather. I have no godfather in the industry nor I am a star kid… Many a times if you are a star son or if u have a godfather 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 nor I was an a star son, but I knew one thing if I get a good chance to prove myself I can definitely Rock.

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!

Shahbaaz Khan has given a million dollar performance in Maula Maula song which is one of the highlight in the movie.

On production front, film is up to the mark. Technically, story is interesting, screenplay is sharp dialogues are witty, cinematography is eye soothing and editing is brisk.

The film has four songs but pick of the lot is Maula Maula, a sufi song rendered by Kailash Kher and Fauzia Arshi, penned by Allama Iqbal and Amir Khushro, title track Dimaagh Ka Dahi, a peppy, spicy entertaining, written by Shabbir Ahmed in the voice of Kunal Ganjawala and Ritu Pathak regales and worth mentioning is a solo number ‘Kabhi To Sun Ghaur Se’, beautifully penned by Ravi Chopra and sung by Fauzia Arshi is ear pleasing. The last one ‘Baap Hona Paap’, sang by Mika Singh and written by Anees Ali Sabri needs is catchy.  The music composed by Fauzia Arshi is very lilting and melodious, she is the surprise addition as a music composer.

As a debutant director Fauzia Arshi is up to the mark and excels in all the departments writing, music as well as direction. The movie is produced by Fauzia Arshi and Santosh Bhartiya.

 On the whole, Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi entertains from first to last frame and it is meant for all ages. Surely, the film will make its producers and distributors happy.

What imbibed her to take up direction? ‘My various experiences, study of encyclopedia and communicate with people from different walks of life, inspired me to make this film. Moreover, the script and content of my film is original and the character’s doesn’t resemble with any reel, but real life Fauzia reveals’. A one woman show, Fauzia is an instant decision maker and does several things at a time with ease which keeps her identity aloof from other filmmakers.

Making a movie with seasoned comedians wasn’t tough as she have been a professor of management, so to manage people doesn’t trouble her. A part from filmmaker, Fauzia is also a guitarist and painter. With Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi, Bollywood introduces Fauzia Arshi as the combination of first female filmmaker and music director.

Ramesh Katheria is a new entrant to the Hindi film firmament as a director. Hailing from Kanpur (UP) he migrated to the Mecca of Hindi films Mumbai in 2014 to make his mark as a director. I had the privilege of meeting him at the office of Leo Media Publications for this write-up. He is a simple down to earth man with high ambitions and aspirations to soar high in the Hindi film industry and earn name and fame and win universal recognition as a director to reckon with. He runs a training institute for aspiring actors and many students from his institute have today become big actors in Bollywood. Interestingly Ramesh is a Law Graduate (BA.LLB) from Kanpur.

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.

director Ramesh Katheria (3)Filmwalaexp

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.

director Ramesh Katheria (4)Filmwalaexp

Which is your first assignment in Mumbai?

I was given the opportunity by producer Aaradhana Gupta to direct her horror film “HARRAA” The Revenge of Death. Which is the first of its kind Bhojpuri film in the Bhojpuri Film Industry. 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.

director Ramesh KatheriaFilmwalaexp

I feel proud that my first assignment as a Horror film director has found an entry in 50 International Film Festivals – The New York City International Film Festival, United States, International Film Award Berlin, Germany, Sydney Film Festival, Australia, Toronto Film Festival, Canada, The Los Angeles Horror Film Festival, United States, Warsaw Film Festival Poland and Moscow Film Festival, Russia.

When the writer met Aradhana Gupta, producer of the Horror film HARRAA The Revenge of Death, she gave me to understand that while she gave Ramesh the first break as a director she felt sure that he will make it as an Independent director, but surprisingly, according to Ramesh Katheria who gave the 1st break to Ankit Tiwari he was not sure that Ankit will conquer the hearts of the film fraternity as a Music Director to reckon with.

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. This is Ramesh Katheria who has directed the Bhojpuri horror film and in one word it will not be out of ;place to stress he is Ramsay of Bhojpuri.
