Filmmaker Rima Das’ National Award winning film Village Rockstars is slated for a Pan-India theatrical release on 28th September 2018.


The film will be released through VKAAO, a joint venture of PVR Pictures and Bookmyshow in metros cities of India and in more than 30 screens in Assam through Kamakhya Films. 


Village Rockstars is the story of Dhunu, a girl who grows up in poverty and learns to fend for herself. However, that does not prevent her from following her dream of forming a rock band and owning a guitar someday. Most of the cast members of the film are non-actors including Rima Das’ niece Bhanita who plays Dhunu and the other kids who hail from Das’ native village in Assam.


The director-cinematographer-editor-producer Rima Das says, “After travelling to many film festivals across the world and winning hearts, I am so delighted that the exciting journey of Village Rockstars has come to its final stage when we prepare with nervous anticipation and hope to present the film to the audiences in OUR homeland.” Read more

The holier than thou critics be damned! Sajid Khan’s Humshakals has collected Rs. 12.5 crores on Friday, June 20, 2014 and earned the distinction of being amongst the top 3 films in terms of first day box office collections.

And believe me, those people who had paid to watch Humshakals found it to be paisa vasool…Kudos to Sajid Khan for spoofing everything in Bollywood and Saif Ali Khan for surrendering himself totally to the director’s vision in terms of ‘hamming’ his way to glory. We love you Saif, Sajid and your film.
