Breaking the cluttered Hindi cinema space, &Pictures has tapped unexplored territories by making India’s first crowd-sourced film ‘Online Milo Saajana’, during its launch phase. The channel has emerged as India’s first interactive Hindi movie channel which is all set to strengthen its programming line-up. It has acquired rights from Sony Pictures to air 40 Hollywood films dubbed in Hindi and bringing the ‘Asli Desi’ flavour with ‘Hollywood Sundays’ at 12 PM starting March 2, 2014.
With an exhaustive movie line-up of famous Hollywood films dubbed in Hindi, &Pictures is all set to bring freshness in movie viewing. This extensive list of films includes action, action-comedy, rom-coms, horror and animated movies. March will see a mix of action and action-comedy which includes movies such as Hancock, Karate Kid (1984), The Adventures of Tintin, Resident Evil and Terminator Salvation.
Akash Chawla, ZEEL Marketing Head, National Channels, said, “&Pictures programming line-up caters to the progressive Indian mindset rooted in tradition. With ‘Hollywood Sundays’ we are offering our viewers the world class experience of Hollywood movies in their comfort zone of Hindi cinema. Sunday afternoons are usually family time spent together watching television, hence it was the ideal time to showcase Hollywood Sundays.”
Apart from Hollywood Sundays, &Pictures offer a robust programming line-up which includes ‘Pictures @ 8’ and ‘Comedy ka Siyapaa’. ‘Pictures @ 8’ will see popular Hindi movies that have been recently released.
