Bollywood Diaries - Movie review

Extent in Madness of Film Lovers

Directed By : K. D. Satyam
Cast : Raima Sen, Salim Diwan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vineet Kumar Singh, Karuna Pandey and Robin Das.
Review By : Priyanka Raina

What is  Love to Cinema - Passionate about Cinema or Madness about Cinema. I would Prefer both, Like Showing Passion in Madness. Films like FILMISTAAN featuring Sharib Hanshmi, InaamUlHaq have come in past as a Tribute to Film Lovers and has been hugely appreciated. Now Lets see , weather Bollywood dairies establishes its name in Viewers's Dairy or not !

Well , Bollywood Dairy is a Simple story based on Life style of People in DILLI, who wants to pursue their career in Acting , and are waiting for their Ticket to Bollywood. 

Director KD Satyam has conveyed his message through his Three Lead Protagonist , who Live Bollywood and want to come anyhow to Mumbai from DILLI. 

The First one (Ashish Vidyarthi) who is well settled with his family in DILLI and works as Chartered Accountant, But not satisfied with his Job. So takes Retirement and plans to come to Mumbai when he get Heart Attack and then Hospitalized.

Second One , (Raima Sen) who is a Prostitute in DILLI and is mad about Bollywood, that she has given customers discount if they from Mumbai. One Asst Director comes to research about Brothel , and she is excited to meet him. She gives her story and later on Known face is casted. She in depression lands in Dance Bar.

Third One, (Gupta) is young boy of 27 who works in call Center and uses Work calls on his personal struggle calling up Filmmakers for chance. He gets mail from Bollywood Calling Audition Hunt and registers himself. In auditions, he does some harmful stunts on which Judges think he can built TRPs and use him for Two Rounds. He thought that he cleared Two rounds and now on Final Round . When auditioning for Final Round, on his Ticket to Mumbai - Judges de moralize him saying He doesn't know Acting on which He becomes Mad.

Music of the Film is good and sensatinal which takes you  aback in some scenes.

Review : On Performance wise, No Doubt all Characters were Brilliant in their Cults. Story was Good, But too Over at Times. Can't Help, But this is happening in Small Towns outside Mumbai who think "Mumbai is Ticket to Bollywood"

Tips to Newcomers : I would sincere request, instead of thinking to come to Mumbai and then struggling for Bollywood is of No use. Today Bollywood has changed, and gone more into Digitally. Instead of seeing that some one calls me, or Talent Hunt(which are pre planned on who is Winner) and Hunt they just do to built TRP's . 

Be you Own Boss , Create your Own Team in your Home State , Write a Good Content & Make SHORT FILMS. Upload on YouTube Channel which is Globally. Send your Entries to Film Festivals and if its good , will be Appreciated.

Blue Star to set up two new state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at Jammu and Sri City

February 23, 2016. 

Blue Star Limited has announced that it is in the process of setting up two major manufacturing facilities to redesign and augment its manufacturing footprint. These will be located at Samba in Jammu and Sri City in Andhra Pradesh. 

The Company plans to invest Rs 215 crores over the next 3-4 years towards this exercise which will increase its overall production capacity by about a million units towards the final phase. Blue Star had embarked on a manufacturing footprint programme with the help of KPMG. Consequent to that exercise, the Company closed down its Thane and Bharuch plants. 

Thus, currently, the Company has five plants in Wada, Dadra, Ahmedabad and Himachal Pradesh. Whilst the Plant at Sri City is proposed to be built around an area of around 20 acres, the Samba factory is to be constructed over 24 acres. 

These factories will primarily manufacture room airconditioners, deep freezers and water coolers. The facility at Samba would enable the Company to avail of the excise duty exemption for a period of 10 years from the commencement of production. 

Apart from planning to avail State GST benefits for intrastate sales, the Sri City Plant would lead to considerable savings in logistics costs since a significant proportion of airconditioner sales of the Company is from the South. 

It would also de-risk the products business due to the spread of its manufacturing footprint in two different states. The significant enhancement in Blue Star‟s manufacturing capacity will help cater to the burgeoning demand in the domestic as well as export markets. Procurement of land followed by plant construction is proposed to start immediately for Samba to enable it to commence operations by FY18. Land procurement is expected to begin at the earliest for Sri City with the plant construction planned in a phased manner to start operations by FY19. 

The new factories are planned to be world-class manufacturing hubs with superior aesthetics and ergonomics, deploying state-of-the-art technology. These modern and contemporary plants will ensure that the products manufactured are not only globally competitive but also set new benchmarks in manufacturing technology in the country. 

The Company aims to transform into a digital enterprise by progressively building on smart manufacturing with Wi-Fi enabled products, inverter technology, vertical integration and environment-friendly products. Further, it intends to develop these plants as environmentally responsible and ecologically sustainable. 

B Thiagarajan, Executive Director & President – AC&R Products Business, Blue Star Limited adds, “A detailed evaluation was undertaken by comparing qualitative parameters such as industrial location and quality of life, supplemented by multiple field visits by the project team to gather ground level insights. 

Blue Star will scale up its manufacturing operations considerably with fully integrated factories at Samba and Sri City to become the largest Indian manufacturer in the AC&R industry. The Company is keen to introduce the best of automation in these new facilities, actualising the country‟s vision of „Make In India‟. The integrated manufacturing strategy from design to lifecycle is envisaged to be one of its kind in the AC&R industry.”

Budget Expectations from Mr. Arshad Majeed, Executive Vice President (Global Delivery), Xavient Information Systems

“All eyes are on the Budget 2016-17 this February. One of the very obvious expectation that is taking the rounds is initiated by Prime Minister’s idea of creating more jobs and we hear that the benefits to the employers would be in the form of tax exemption. Some reduction in corporate tax this year would be a welcome step by the industry. A detailed road map and greater funds allocation is anticipated for the Smart City Initiative. The hopes ride high for this year’s budget and we believe the focus to be on digital literacy, improved connectivity and access to technology. The Digital India initiative is something to look forward to and budget support in this regard is highly expected for encouraging more startups.  And since we operate in the NSEZ, we definitely await the removal of MAT from the SEZ’s, that has been long due.”

Budget Expectations from Vishwas Shringi, Founder of

With the launch of ‘Start-Up India, Stand-Up India’ Action plan, the growing e-commerce industry has got positive directions from the Govt. but it expects more clarity on certain aspects. The industry is undergoing a paradigm shift and bringing in a lot of innovation and change. The e-commerce industry is growing at a faster pace with the increasing use of mobile and internet. According to Assocham, the e-commerce sector will be worth USD 38 billion by 2016.

Clarity on FDI & GST Roadmap
“The E-Commerce industry seeks the Budget to give more clarity on FDI policies and GST roadmap. Taxes such as CST, VAT, excise and service taxes among others needs to simplified for smooth functioning of the industry. Maximum job opportunities can be generated in the industry, with relaxation of FDI limit. Clarity in processes & systems and Single Window System will help the sector flourish at faster pace.”says Mr. Vishwas Shringi, Founder of   

VCs Interest
“Considering that E-Commerce companies also have to take care of Venture Capitalists, who have invested in the venture, it is important that the Govt. ensures implementation of aspects such as funds-of-funds and other measures introduced in the action plan and help entrepreneurial ventures grow. The Govt. should look at increasing the tax holiday period from three years as hardly any start-up become profitable in just three years of inception.”, he added.  

Gems & Jewelry Sector
The Indian jewellery manufacturers and retailers make a significant contribution of 6 to 7 % towards Indian GDP, creating value addition of Rs 100,000 crores and also contribute 14% towards exports.

“The upcoming Budget should provide tax incentives and relief measures for the labor-intensive gems and jewelry sector to give a boost to the jewelry manufacturing sector as well as exports.” he added. The brand is currently exporting to international markets through its online presence on international marketplaces such as,,, etc.

The future channel expansion also includes opening of physical stores in international markets covering Gulf, US and European markets. “We believe that Honorable Finance Minister will bring in some effective measures to bring down Gold Imports.” he added.    

The Gems & Jewelry segment is also one of the top employment generating industries, where 90% of manufacturing is by ‘karigars’ and 80% of retailing by ‘independent’ jewelers.   

Govt. Initiatives
This budget should have some favorable reforms for players like, who have been contributing to Govt. initiatives such as ‘Make in India’ & ‘National Skill Development’. “We expect to see a raise in custom duty and a drop in excise duty on imitation jewelry.” he added.

Aligarh - Film Review by Priyanka Raina

Mesmerizing Journey of Civility to Aligarh

Directed By:  Hansal Mehta
Written By : Apurva Asrani, Ishani Banerjee
Cast : Manoj Bajpayee, Rajkumar Rao,  Ashish Vidyarthi
Produced by : EROS

When ever movie is based on social issues , its obvious Movie will  reflect certain positive and negative feedback as well. But if the Movie is on 377 Act ,can turn an Eye opener for many of us who think that these people are not part of society.  Earlier Films like Dunno Y  Naa jaane Kyonfeatauring Kapil Sharma & Yuvraaj Parashar , which first movie to based on 377 Act did not fare well, because that time people were not ready to accept the sensitvity And lets see how Hansal Mehta manages  with Aligarh to convey his Audience.

Film Aligarh portrays on the life of 64 year old Marathi Professor SIRAS (Manoj Bajpyee) who was about to retire from Aligarh University in just three months, and was harassed by Politics caused by Aligarh University by shooting video of him sleeping with Richkshaw Driver Irfan saying that He is Gay. 

On this An Intern Reporter from Times Today Deepu Sebastian (Rajkumar Rao) from Dilli looked at other side of story and went into depth of it. At that time He planned his journey from DILLI to Aligarh to go into depth of it for writing. Also felt sorry on cheapness of University and raised topic that "What right has someone to enter in their private lives"

But till the Time Section 377 came under power and supported the cause of Professor Siras, and Case went till court  where we saw the real phase of University. Brilliant Performances by Lawyer Anand Grover (Ashish Vidyarthi) who played Lawyer of 377 section.

Also , Manoj Bajpayee is huge Fan of Lata Mangeshkar in movie and often listens to old songs on his Tap-recorder. Some Moments in the film, which will really touch your inner soul and will force you to think about particular character 

Characters Graph : One can't just describe Acting skills of Versatile Actors Manoj Bajpai, Ashish Vidyarthi , They are just beyond it. RajKumar Rao was good enough in his convincing power as a journalist.

Direction : Hansal Mehta delivers a well researched story that stars on 8th feb 2010, with certain parts in between for Court's date and Ends on 15th April 2010 with a valuable message. 

Screenplay By Apurva Asrani was totally taken a back, especially old songs by Lata Mangeshkar which were well pictured to show Fan Moment of Manoj Bajpayee. Also definition of LOVE was well described in proverb "Its a Beautiful World"

Review : Aligarh can be defined as a Masterpiece which is Beyond 377, Apart its conveys so many messages. What right someone has to peep in someone's window, Also Disrespect to Senior Citizens which is totally unethical. 

Aligarh is a Must watch film for Everyone to change everyone's perspective of peeping into someone's Privacy. My ratings -3.5 - 4 Stars to Film  
Rating : 4 Stars
