From its birth in the purest ice and snow, through its long journey through hills, valleys and plains, to its final commingling with the salt waters of the sea, the river’s journey is one of the romance and adventure. In this album, a maestro pays tribute to the great rivers of our land – which acts as a common thread binding our country, their water carrying local cultures across state borders. Musically the folk and the classical mingle like the water of the river reflecting the different places, peoples, seasons, and customs of all the different regions it passes through.

Inspired by true events, this is the story of one man’s personal battle between right and wrong, his devotion to his country and his love for his wife.

In the middle 1940's, while India struggled to gain independence from the British Empire and Queen Victoria’s rule, the British created a secret group known as the Pandits. Their objective was to carry out secret missions to gather information, influence people and, in this case, steal.

When a poor farmer takes his ill wife to the city for medical help their lives are forever changed when the British use him to steal the Sacred Scriptures from the Dalai Lama’s Potala Palace in Tibet.

Filmed on location in Leh, Ladakh (Kashmir), bordering Tibet, and in Pataudi, Haryana, located near Delhi, India, the Buddhist Monk brings to the audience a little-known historical event and the amazing scenery of these very ancient areas.

Punjab's only film shot more than half in single shot scene through which we get the idea how talented & efficient are the actors. This magnum opus leaves you startled with a question answer to which lies within you..

Ardhanarishwara is an intensive contemporary dance production exploring movement and the concept of masculine & feminine energies evolving a distinctive vocabulary using the techniques of Bharatnatyam, Mayuribhanj Chhau, Kathak, Modern, Yoga and contemporary.

This is an intensely physical journey of what the dancers have developed with the choreographer through extensive improvisation and touching their own inner source of PRAKRATI and PURUSH highlighting that irrespective of whether a man or woman – we hold the power of balance in our lives if we allow ourselves to manifest the freedom of being both feminine and masculine, thereby breaking through the stereo type that "A MAN MUST BEHAVE IN A CERTAIN MANNER and A WOMAN MUST BEHAVE IN ANOTHER MANNER". Hence this production is a journey to find oneself by exploring and then breaking through the stereotypes.
