Why I Pursued Master of Arts After Bachelor of Engineering

Because I had always wanted to do something in the humanities. The long answer is a combination of several interests I racked up over the years since I first signed up for Engineering. I don’t blame the education system, but it was personally a tough call for me to choose what I had wanted to […]

Last Day at MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2018

The final day of the 20th MAMI festival was the best of the week-long pilgrimage for me. I managed to watch three films – taking the total counter to 13 (a personal record) – one of which was the much-anticipated closing film by Steve McQueen. I was camped up at Regal Cinema, Colaba all day […]

Days 4, 5, and 6 at MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2018

After having enjoyed three films on day 3, I came back to my normal on days 4 and 5. Because I was working, I could only catch one movie per day. This time one at PVR Kurla and the other at PVR Mulund. I can say I really missed the hustle bustle of PVR ICON […]

Day 0 of MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2018

The 2018 edition of MAMI Mumbai Film Festival started on a low note for cinephiles, some of whom, like me, woke up unusually early to book the tickets for day one i.e. 26 October. Although it took me some time, I managed to get a seat for the first show of the opening film, Vasan […]
