  2. Hollywood Film- Charlie's Angels (2019) Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy Shake your bonn bonn ...shake your gunn gunn...!! This film gets women all empowered with high flying kicks and some jaw-dropping style statements on screen. Women with all power and brains really are rocking Holly-wood screens, inspiring real life Mademoiselles revving up their muscular swag too. Well crafted film which has all the freshness of new faces with punch of camaraderie and a lot of tech spice, the Angel's are surely going to rock the box-office but a true fan-follower would somewhere miss the original beauties lighting up Charlie's badass busting, we do miss Cameroz Diaz, Drew Barrymore & Lucy Liu's sparks. The film showcases suave fashionista, who also happens to be the director of our ladies driven film, Elizabeth Banks (Bosley) glams up our two angels Kristen Stewart (Sabina Wilson) & Ella Balinska (Jane Kano). The third angel in making is kept as the icing on the cake till almost the end of the film. Ella Balinska kicks monstrous butts in the most stylish way, she's the next bond girl in making but all three angels are worth admiring!! I personally loved the energy in the film with all the poshness, an attribute of classy ladies. Men in the film may have been shadowed by the presence of all women brigade but Patrick Stewart (John Bosley) with his charismatic poise stands-out as always. Patrick as the founder member with Charlie of Townsend Agency, the plush secret agency with a lot of funding for gadgets and gizmos, is shown as retiring with a professional seeing-off ceremony organized by Elizabeth, post which the story picks up. The three angelic women come together from different backgrounds under one roof for Elizabeth, who alongwith the help of Luis Gerardo Mendez (The Saint) establishes a secret base somewhere in UK where the hideout houses their mind boggling fashion wardrobe with eye tingling shoes, designer accessories, vast makeup range, goggles- a collection to die for & secretly packed with the latest shooting-blasting equipment. Damn I simply love each secret agent film, which shows a lot of tempting gizmos, which are so freaky unrealistic for a common man. The story revolves around Elizabeth & Patrick eyeing for acquiring a technological advancement called Calisto, a sustainable energy source, invented by a company owned by the handsome Sam Claflin, after years of research by a team of scientists including our prospective third agent, Naomi Scott (Elena Houghlin), not only Calisto self generates electricity but also can be manhandled to turn into weaponry for which the angels have to work hard to save this masterpiece -Calisto. Our secret angels (Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska) ravishingly burn the screen with their angelic presence and fight till the end to save poor Calisto. The plot of the film is a bit shoddy but the fireworks of talent from all the women on screen is the saving grace for the viewers. All in all captivating film with all the jazz of youth and machinery which holds the attention of the eye of the tiger!

  11. Bala: If we had it all...life would have been a bed of roses! That's something which hits everyone once in awhile but in this particular tale, it hits our man of the mane, more than once. From one of my personal favorite director's Amar Kaushik, comes yet another matter-of-fact film which will bring one closer to realization of facts of one's life and what is there with you needs to be cherished, a message everyone should remind oneself again and again! Bala, aka, Bal Mukund Shukla (I love this guy- Ayushmann Khurrana), our typical 25 years old, Kanpuria boy-next-door unveils the curtains by taking us through his childhood, showing how childhood remains everyone's favorite phase of life. He spreads naughtiness wrapped in happy times tickling the hearts of the audience by sheer innocent monkey business. Then the switch from childhood to present Bala is flawless showing the emotionally bruised grown-up man with a pertinent issue of hair loss to tackle. And from that moment on, the journey of the distraught man starts, every incident making our protagonist, a stronger and braver man! Ayushmann Khurrana rules the roost and after watching him portray the character Bala, one would know why media is craving for more from this young man with the aura of a thousand watts bulb in the middle of an ocean. His energy flowing through the character is worth a hundred applause and the ladies (Yami Gautam, Bhumi Penderkar) he charms in his quest to get his wavy, thick locks back, alongwith the supporting cast, over-powers everybody's presence on screen by simplistic yet delightful performance. This super-cute actor with his bald-man-next-door portrayal wins few crores in the first week itself (of course age and figures are just numbers for our Charmer) !! The director gives due weightage to the women and other characters in our man's life by giving each one enough space to showcase individualistic talent sparks and boy, oh boy, sparks fly all over the screen at perfect timing. Latika (Bhumi Pednekar) the sweet but dark complexioned classmate of Bala symbolizes the hurt of a girl who is blessed with a skin color which is not accepted by the society still! Amar Kaushik stings the orthodox mindset of our society flawlessly and tries to get the message straight on the face, justice done to the writer's (Niren Bhatt) blue-print. Latika grows up to be a ravishing, bold, courageous, dark-skinned yet self loving, confident lawyer of the city, who ends up helping her friend Bala inspite of an incident which caused a lot of heart burn to the little girl, way back during school days. Bhumi has acted very well and will surely emerge as the next Shabana Azmi, grace meets art. The second lady in our hero's life is the love interest of our man, the man with the mission of growing hair to please his lady love, Pari (beautiful Yami Gautam), is shown as tik-tok (yet another insensitive but hyped-app of this generation) queen and budding model from Kanpur who lives only to look good and get appreciation from the world in terms of rising numbers of likes. This tik-tok character is a whack on the wasted minds, showing interest only in getting public attention and acquiring self-worth stamped by the world in terms of thumb's up (likes) on social media. Every character around Bala is striking. Saurabh Shukla as father of Bala is supportively detached and lets our man decide his course of action for tackling his never ending problems. Seema Bhargava as aunt of Latika adds zing and fun to the screen giving small doses of laughter at the right time when the story lets you drift with a purpose. Sunita Rajwar as the mother of the bald 25 years old is convincingly empathetic. Brother of Bala (Dheerendra Kumar Gautam) has given added spice to the family drama, fussing and yet helping the elder brother, in a typical 2-tier city's middle class family, to get over the grave problem of baldness. He goes around from helping the elder brother put onion juice to grow his hair to wickedly escaping the application of foul smelling mixture of cow dung & bull semen, a 'nuskha' told by the quintessential Mr.Know-all, Bacchan Dubey (Javed Jaffery). Bala's childhood friend cum-hair stylist (played by Abhishek Banerjee) is comical and realistic, we all have one such friend who backs every action of ours! Child artist, Sachin Chaudhary as young Bala has been very versatile for his age. Some young people are surely running towards a shallow life where only public displays and public recognition is the key to happiness than gaining any educational or moral values or social values. Life for the present generation is more about appreciation from the outer world than the growth of the inner world! Such a disappointing matter of fact but the message is given out loud to the audience in superb undercurrents with a lot of grace. Every film of Ayushmann touches my head and heart, bringing me closer to the fan moment for this magical actor. He aims at breaking the stereotypes without hurting anybody's line of thought and yet conveys the message to the society impeccably. Great music by the duo, Sachin-Jigar, which helps the plot progress beautifully giving out heightened moments. The one piece that catches my attention is "Pyaar toh tha", sung by Jubin Nautiyal, this song is romantically soothing to the ears. All in all, Bala says it to all- Life is not just about color, looks, make-up or the brands that one has to acquire to get recognized but its the skin deep understanding of living like a Queen or a King, with individuals God-gifted natural attributes, that takes one to the pinnacle of happiness. Wonderful movie for sensible viewers! Cheers to the bald spark of this Kissa Bal (Hair) Ka...Ayushmann Khuarrana, damn I am baowld:) Cast & Crew: Director: Amar Kaushik Actors: Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam, Saurabh Shukla, Sunita Rajwar, Seema Bhargava, Javed Jaffery, Dheerendra Kumar Gautam, Abhishek Banerjee, Sachin Chaudhary, Mushtaq Khan Producers: Dinesh Vijan, Jaspreet Kaur, Vivek Rangachari Music Directors: Sachin-Jigar Writer: Niren Bhatt
  12. What is VOD-Video on Demand The concept isn't new to the media world but with the increase in bandwidth and so many providers, videos are flooding the market , the awareness is surely on the high. VoD can work well over a wide geographic region or on a satellite-based network as long as the demand for programming is modest. However, when large number of consumers demand multiple programs on a continuous basis, the total amount of data involved (in terms of megabytes) can overwhelm network resources.One way to sort this problem is to store programs on geographically distributed servers and provide programs to local users on request, a technology called store and forward. This approach increases the availability of the programming and the overall reliability of the system compared with the use of a single gigantic storehouse. Store and forward also allows local providers to maintain their systems and set up billing structures independently. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching technology lends itself especially well to this application. Examples- AmazonPrime, Netflix, Hulu, Go90, streamhash, HBO GO,Voot,Vidooly What is SVOD - Subscription Video on Demand or Streaming Video on Demand. Where users get unlimited access to a mammoth of programs for a monthly rental. A subscriber an pause, show, fast-forward, rewind & stop the videos as per their desire.Assumption is that a user will watch only a certain amount of content for a number of hours(50-200 hours per month). Example-Netflix, Hulu What is AVOD - Ad-based Video on Demand A model where users are free to log in and stream videos in return for spending time watching the advertisements.Mixed model of free and paying a monthly rental and extra amount to watch certain added content of a video on demand. Example-Youtube What is NVOD - Near Video n Demand, NVOD is a technique used in digital television by cable or satellite to offer the same feature films on different channels at different, staggered start times. NVOD channels are used for Pay-Per-View services and they have pre-designated schedule times. Viewer has the choice of deciding for a suitable start time. Example-Youtube, tune.pk What is TVOD - Transactional Video on Demand- In the the user makes a payment for a limited and particular choice of videos or small combination of videos. For example making payment for a particular movie or a series pf videos. It is also commonly known as "Pay per View" (Youtube paid videos). So cost is attached for a single movie. Example-itunes, distrify What is FVOD - Free Video on Demand , VOD programming offered by a network operator free of charge.

Video on Demand solutions: 1.Limelight networks as solutions-limelight.com 2.AlphaOTT IPTV Middleware-alphaott.com 3.webnexs.com 4.comcasttechnologysolutions.com
  13. KEDARNATH - The Film Mother Nature knows no boundaries or religion or caste or creed. Humans may invent anything in their best of capabilities but at the end of the road , every living form has to bow down to its creator- the Mother! The film is set in the scenic Kedarnath, a place located in the Garhwal Himalayan range near the Mandakini river. Beautiful as it is, in its natural form, the place is known for the famous Shivling which looks over the river and attracts thousands of Hindu pilgrims and Lord Shiva's followers every year. Mansoor (Shushant Sing Rajput), a shy, reserved and honest Muslim porter gets attracted to the beautiful but rebellious daughter of the local Hindu priest, Mukku (Sarah Ali Khan). The two beautiful souls fall for each other deeper and deeper on the winding roads to the temple. The love story blooms amidst the mountains and the valley leading to bonding of the hearts and thus, romance. Lord Shiva showers enough love on the couple cruising from mundane work to chatting by the Tattu (Mule) trails which Mansoor arranges for the pilgrims and his lady love. He being the strong man in town not only woos our beautiful petite girl but also touches every heart visiting the temple. His motto, to bring a smile on the face of his customer and then running to ring the bell at the temple's gate every time he achieves his goal symbolizes the character's belief in Lord Shiva, as innocent as Shiva is, our man portrays the genuineness with elan.There are sweet, romantic moments between the two Sweethearts, which are beautifully captured by the camera alongside flirting with the sublime scenery. Sara Ali Khan does justice to the bubbly, rebellious yet soft hearted, romantic Hindu girl, who gives up everything for Mansoor. Sushant Singh Rajput on the other hand maintains the bareness of a poor porter while managing to woo the audience from his straight-from-the-heart performance. He not only makes it clear that religion knows only the language of love, not the boundaries set by manipulating and corrupting minds, trying to disrupt peace of humanity, but also tries to bridge Hindus and Muslims of the area surrounding the temple for community's harmony. Director (Abhishek Kapoor) doesn't leave a single frame in the film where the beauty of the place is not heightened by the mesmerizing background score and music tracks created with a lot of love for Shiva by the maestro Amit Trivedi. The track- Namo Namo is energetically soulful, taking the head and the heart closer to Adiyogi. The track is filled with a lot of love and energy that will create a soothing audio-visual effect on the audience. Amit Trivedi takes it one notch higher with every single track. But as the saying goes, every good thing must end, the love story is struck by the wrath of nature leaving the couple devastated as the fury is unleashed on the valley, taking with it everything that falls in its way. The real event was an eye opener to the entire nation to yet another catastrophe caused due to the ill effects of human civilization and growth. When will man instead of creating irrational boundaries of caste-creed, money-status, go down to the real issues of human existence and work towards creating a safer, wiser and cleaner balance between environment and progressive growth? The film will not only evoke strong feelings of devotion for Shiva but will also engulf the audience with visual simplicity, leaving the viewers to ponder and work on ways of symbiotic existence with Mother Nature!

  18. Chhichhore: Life teaches us a lot of things on a daily basis and the best lessons are learnt by individually walking on that thin wire. Chhichhore opens up the pandora box of individual touch-downs and outbursts of nostalgia. Each individual has lived through the best days during their school & college life, so when the reality of competition dawned on us, back then, we all ended up feeling bogged down badly, trust me a feeling, every individual has definitely felt surfacing up while climbing the ladder of age! This film revolves around a child (Mohammad Samad) who has a loving family with its own personal bag of reasons of rifts & drifts. The child who is the apple-of-the-eye of both the parents, is at the threshold of getting into a prestigious college based on his awaited competitive result! Mother of the child, who apparently drifted out of the wedlock over the years, is gracefully played by Sharddha Kapoor, the character is very convincingly detached yet committed to her motherly duties. The doting & supportive middle-aged father of our teen, who's balancing work and parenthood, is portrayed by Sushant Singh Rajput, and is very relatable to half a dozen new-age fathers! Just when the pages of the story are warming up everyone's heart on screen, a well timed twist brings a gamut of characters with shades of vibrant colors of life and emotions.When everything is looking rosy and well carved by pragmatic achievers, fate construes a different story, flipping the coin of life at the hands of lady luck. The incident plays havoc on the parents lives and leaves them yearning for the warmth lost somewhere while climbing the ladders of materialism. The supporting cast is remarkable and performances of each one is better than the other giving the audience a spicy taste of distinct differences of characters. Varun Sharma & Saharsh Kumar Shukla are class apart. How the matured father pulls the loose reins of the three lives after convincing the hopeless mother & super supportive gang of friends, creating a conducive environment for their son to learn the real lessons of life for a better tomorrow and a wiser future, makes this film a worthwhile watch for suppose-to-be realistically cool parents of next generation teenagers. Music from Pritam Chakroborty is as always musically refreshing. "Khairiyat" song in Arijit Singh's voice is mush at its best & has been rocking the charts. The film will be able to open up windows for new-age parents to their children, as they go on moulding their kids into materialistic charmers, unknowingly building pressures, creating false insecurities and instilling some shallow thoughts, resulting into a confused youth. More parents should raise smarter kids who are not only capable of battling the survival & existence game of life but also individuals who are high on emotional quotients capable of beating the rat races and flourishing as a worthy humane human!! Cast & Crew: Director: Nitesh Tiwari Producer: Sajid Nadiadwala Music Director: Pritam Chakraborty Editor: Charu Shree Roy Cast: Shraddha Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Sharma, Naveen Polishetty, Tahir Bhasin, Prateik Babbar, Tushar Pandey, Saharsh Kumar Shukla, Mohammad Samad, Nalneesh Neel, Prashant Narayanan, Shishir Sharma, Saanand Verma, Sanjay Goradia
  19. YOU (Season 1) - Netflix Original Human emotions are the most complex aspect of God's creation. The frailty of the person's understanding-misunderstanding, judging-analyzing horizons and the facets of the human brain all make the complexity even more deep. Netflix's original- YOU, deals with a mammoth array of emotions and the significant effect of present day compulsions with varied emotional consequences, making it worthy enough for serious watching! The complex protagonist Joe (Penn Badgley, charming actor) falls in love with vivacious college-goer Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and how life , love, longing and deceiving spins the life of the characters playing part in the drama, is a craft on its own. There are high's and the low's of this love tale too, as any other love-story but the on-the-edge twists and turns add color to the audiences canvas. Greg Berlanti & Sera Gamble, the creators have conceived this one in a very tasteful manner for the ever-attention hungry youth of today. Each character portrays the typical colorful, whimsical, superficial life, today's youth mostly aspires to live through which a ray of old charm squeezes out at random intervals and how the deep rooted torments of one's personal life can create more chaos to people living around. Interestingly, co-character, Peach (Shay Mitchell) is significantly stronger than any other character and turns out to be a head turner in her own screen space. Peach symbolizes the snooty girls who are everything but loud and so prim and proper that one would think a hundred times before even standing before the scrutinizing eyes. Joe's love interest, Beck, is the sweet girl-next-door with a lot of layers of misery unfolding the beauty of our true damsel in distress, yet somewhere deep down, she's a fierce fighter with a hundred watt smile to warm up the dingiest of rooms. A fine love chase of a man with a trunk full of secrets, a dash of surprise in every move of his, and an old world charm to light up nooks and corners of the pace of the story, makes YOU one of the much applauded- Original, Season 1 !! Cast & Crew: Cast: Penn Badgley, Ambyr Childers, Elizabeth Lail, Shay Mitchell Directors: Marcos Siega, Silver Tree, Lee Toland Krieger, Marta Cunningham, Kellie Cyrus, Erin Feeley, Victoria Mahoney, Martha Mitchell, Harry Jierjian, Shannon Kohli, John Scott, Kevin Rodney Sullivan

  23. To make a FREE DCP file, one can use DCP-O-Matic. DCP-O-Matic is a free to use, Open Source software that lets you create your own DCP files. The important thing to understand is the drives carrying the DCP files HAVE TO BE FORMATTED AS EXT2 (preferably for the widest support) or EXT3 for Linux. The DCI Projector Servers will only recognise these formats. The reason is, DCI, or Digital Cinema Initiatives, tried to ensure everything around the Digital Cinema system worked on open source software. Your Mac or Windows computer may not be able to read or write to them without additional software. For Mac, you an download DCP-Transfer from Cinematiq. DCP-Transfer installed on your Mac will easily let you format, read to and write files on a hard drive ready for DCP Projection. A Windows version of DCP-Transfer is supposed to be soon released.

  24. A DCP file is a Digital Cinema Package. It contains video, audio files and data streams for projections. From Wikipedia: "The term was popularized by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC in its original recommendation for packaging DC contents. However, the industry tends to apply the term to the structure more formally known as the Composition. ("You PLAY a Composition, You do NOT play a Digital Cinema Package". A DCP is a “packing crate” for Compositions, a hierarchical file structure that represents a title version. The DCP may carry a partial Composition (e.g. not a complete set of files), a single complete Composition, or multiple and complete Compositions." The DCP file will contain a video (or picture track) and an audio track along with couple of xml files, which are in essence asset map files consisting of usually a 'Composition Playlist File', a 'Package List File' or a 'PKL Package Key List' and a 'Volume Index File'. The picture track is typically a JPEG2000 also known as J2K file. The Sound file is a mxf file which is 96KH, 24bits and can carry around 16 channels of sound. Nowadays it is possible to make your own DCP files.
  25. What is the meaning of OTT? What does an OTT Platform mean? In very common words, OTT means Over The Top. This means, in the context of content delivery, any thing which is delivered without the traditional delivery mechanisms, like Satellite, Cable, etc. Over The Top (OTT) means content delivered over the internet. OTT Platform means any "Channel" which is delivered OTT, or Over The Internet. So platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Zee5, HotStar, MFXPlayer, etc are all OTT Platforms. All their content is delivered over the Internet and NOT through satellite or cable etc. Since OTT is delivered over the internet, typically their content can be viewed on various devices like internet connected televisions, laptops, smartphones, tablets, or any internet connected devices which support video.
