The countdown has begun. In less than 100 hours, JioMAMI ’15 will begin with its glittering smart spotlight on World as well as Indian Cinema.

The entire list of films is MUST WATCH, however, due to limited time we have as humans, one can watch only four films a day, during the film festival spanning across seven days. This means we can watch at most 28 films!
