MOVIE MASTI MAGIC!

There is more action, drama, romance, violence behind the screen than on it! And IWA MOVIE CLUB brings it all out in the open during the cozy gatherings. Not for the weak hearted, these four-weekly meet-ups, are for the true-blue gossip mongers and purveyors of juicy tidbits! 

We at IWA Movie Club dive deep into a movie, explore new genres, go behind the scenes to take a top-angle view of the context and fundamentals.

Relish and rejoice the pages of Filmfare, Blitz come alive in a lively environment over mouth-watering Indian fare! Relive the magic of movies and get drenched in the tinsel town Stardust!

FILMS? OOPS They are incidental! 

WHEN & WHERE: Filmy dhamaal every 4th Wednesday of the month 

So, join us on some LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION!

PAST SCREENINGS:

THE PATIENCE STONE: An Afghani Film which explored the theme ‘How Free is Free A woman can be!’

SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, WINTER... AND SPRING: A South Korean film that took us back to the teachings of Buddha.

A FANTASTIC WOMAN”: A Chilean story about a transgender woman and how she deals with the death of her boyfriend to rediscover her own identity.

CHARULATA:   We ran a Guess the Movie Contest - combining interpretation of the Bengali Classic through paintings

BLUE MANSION: Celebrated Halloween with the Ghostly Blue Mansion- Couldn't figure out what was scarier the film or our costumes! 

WALK THE RED CARPET: We walked the RED Carpet to celebrate KYA MASTI, KYA DHOOM AWARDS. Budding IWA Directors showcased their creations - Dulha dulhan aur Biryani, Laila maal aur Chaila dhamaal, Khooni Samosa, Kutte ki Prem Kahani were some of the creative scripts read. The Aloo Award, The Nimboo Award and The Tikha Chaat Award were some of the awards given out. 

FILMY GUPSHUP 

  • Karan Johar wrote Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in just nine days.
  • For Dangal, Nitesh Tiwari and Aamir Khan auditioned as many as 3000 girls for the roles of Geeta and Babita Phogat.
  • In Fitoor, Katrina Kaif had to color her hair red for the movie, which, reportedly, cost the producers INR 55 lakhs.
  • The pile of excreta that the young Jamal jumps into in Slumdog Millionaire was made from a combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Delicious.
  • Pierce Brosnan signed a contract that he would not wear a full tuxedo in any non-James Bond movie from 1995-2002.
  • Some of the velociraptor noises in Jurassic Park are actually tortoises mating

Director Jafar Panahi smuggled his film ‘This Is Not a Film’ out of Iran in the form of a USB stick concealed within a birthday cake.
