Amazon Original Reality docu-series Cinema Marte Dum Tak takes audiences behind the scenes into the never-seen-before fascinating and undocumented world of 90s Hindi pulp movies- a golden era that boasted of a loyal fan-base for the cult phenomenon that it was. This evening, Prime Video, Vasan Bala, and Vice Media brought together friends from the film fraternity and members from the media, for a special screening of this reality docu-series to celebrate love for cinema.

The team of Cinema Marte Dum Tak was present in full force and was overwhelmed by the praise, plaudits, and cheers from the audience. Present at this special screening were Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Prime Video, Vasan Bala, Samira Kanwar along with creators and talent from the 90’s pulp industry like Vinod Talwar, Shiva Rindani, and Harish Patel.

A Vice Studios Production and created by maverick filmmaker, Vasan Bala, the six-episode reality docu-series is a first-ever peek into the dazzling and independent ecosystem of the 90s Pulp Cinema industry. Co-directed by Disha Rindani, Xulfee, and Kulish Kant Thakur, Cinema Marte Dum Tak takes audiences behind the scenes with four exceptionally passionate directors of that era – J Neelam, Vinod Talwar, Dilip Gulati, and Kishan Shah – as they come back for their swan songs, to make a film using the similar budgets and themes from 30 years ago. The docu-series also features actors like Raza Murad, Mukesh Rishi, Harish Patel, and Rakhi Sawant amongst others sharing insights on this lesser-known chapter of Indian cinema. Actor Arjun Kapoor also makes an appearance as a host in the final episode.
