The Golden Pen to Premiere at the 12th Annual ReelWorld Film Festival

That’s right ladies and gentleman, The Golden Pen has been accepted to the 2012 ReelWorld Film Festival, which will be happening in Toronto April 11-15th. You can catch our Canadian premiere on April 13 at the Famous Players Canada Square Cinema. The making of The Golden Pen has been an incredible journey, and after almost two years, we couldn’t be more excited to share our film with you. CLICK ME to buy tickets for the premiere, which are $10 each; $5 for seniors and students..

For the still uninitiated, The Golden Pen is about the life of Aghajani Kashmeri and unfolds through the stories told by his descendants and a historian in Lucknow.  In Mumbai, the heart of Bollywood, the film picks up with footage from his films, interviews Bollywood actors such as the late Shammi Kapoor and Joy Mukherjee, and the veteran sweetheart of early Bollywood, Nimmi. Others such as Amin Sayani of the radio show that could make or break movies, Binaca Geet Mala or hit parade, reminisce about a man who entertained six generations of Indians, and was a celebrity who lost much of his wealth on the racetrack before finally moving to Toronto late in life.

In the upcoming weeks, we are looking to use this site and our Facebook page as platforms to share more information about the film and the incredible life of Aghajani Kashmeri, so if that is something you’re interested in please join us on Facebook or check back here regularly.

Finally, we sincerely hope that you can join us April 13th in Toronto as we celebrate Aghajani Kashmeri, a man who lived to make movies, with a cinematic tribute told with the deepest admiration by those that knew him best. If you cannot make it, stay tuned for our upcoming Television premiere on Omni-TV and other screening opportunities as they are announced.

  1. Congratulations, Kash, on winning the runner-up award at the recent Asians on Film Festival. Just goes to show that when you create something from the heart, people notice. Once again, Jeannette and I offer our congratulations.

  2. Thank you Kevin. You can’t imagine how much your words mean to me. The whole Hindu Muslim animosity issue was always an irritant for Aghajani Kashmeri, who incessantly tried to bring in plots, subplots and dialogues in his Bollywood movies to focus on the futility of this conflict. Thank you for your kind words of praise also for The Golden Pen as a documentry. It was my first, and your words mean a lot to me.

  3. Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed meeting you and seeing the film
    The Golden Pen. Some parts of the film brought back memories of my
    childhood. Even though my family was Hindu, my parents had several Muslim
    friends, and in my pre-teens I was surrounded by many aspects of Muslim
    life. The film brought back memories of those days! You have done a great
    tribute to your father, and I salute you for that.
