Chalk & Duster:

The enterprise over education disease has filled all corners of our society.  Commercialization of Indian private education system, has killed all good creativity and real education has suffered in many ways.

The main sufferers are the students and the teachers and this is what the film shows. The film stars Juhi Chawla, Shabana Azmi, Zarina Wahab, Girish Karnad and Divya Dutta in main roles.

The cutest Chipmunks are back and this time they are hilariously sweet. They bring us the special bonding moments with Alvin who makes them rock-stars in the singing world. This time they are out on a road trip.
