Manoj Bajpayee starts his entrepreneurial journey with an online cinema portal that will showcase the best films and documentaries

  Some of the best independent cinema has failed to reach the people, and people looking for quality cinema often do not find it. It is this gap in the cinema ecosystem that fills. This online video-streaming portal dedicated to independent films and filmmakers does not just provide classic and independent cinema to people around the world, it promotes and even funds independent cinema by upcoming filmmakers. The portal also provides a space for the users to understand cinema and interact with likeminded cinema lovers.

A selected list of titles ranging from short films to documentaries and feature films in various languages are offered to its users so that they don’t have to go through thousands of titles to decide which one to watch. The user can opt for a monthly subscription to avail unlimited access. Some exclusive films are also available on a pay per view scheme, with an option to access it for 72 hours.

This venture by Abhayanand Singh, an investment banker and cinema lover, interested Manoj Bajpayee who has made Muvizz his maiden entrepreneurial journey. He explains, “As viewers have you ever counted how many movies of different languages, different cultures and communities reach us daily? In today’s revolutionary era, our venture muvizz is a first-of-its-kind website where movies are not judged by only commercial success or failure. We curate Indian and global cinema which includes contemporary and parallel films for our viewers.” He adds that their aim is not only to offer these movies to our viewers, but to also give them an opportunity to interact with like-minded people on cinema. “Our venture is all about helping film makers at every level to gain global exposure while encouraging diversity, creativity and innovation in the process,” he reveals.
Celebrated cinema personalities like Ketan Mehta, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Anuraag Kashyap and others have appreciated the initiative.
