Star Gold recently announced the launch of Star Gold Select HD – a premium hindi movie channel in HD. The new channel will build destination viewing for select Indian cinema on television, showcasing a selection of meaningful Indian cinema. Committed to premiering a new movie every week for the next 52 weeks, the channel will play every movie, everyday with just 1-intermission to give its audience an enjoyable in-home movie viewing experience. Star Gold Select HD will be premiering Masaan, a critically admired movie with a great story, this Saturday.
The lead characters in the movie are played by Richa Chaddha, Sanjay Mishra, Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi. Masaan raises pressing social issues related to gender bias, sexual repression and caste based discrimination. The collision of ideas formed by tradition and emerging modernity compels one to think about existing societal conventions.
The movie traces two different stories that run in parallel, set up against the backdrop of Varanasi. In one story Devi (Richa Chaddha) fights with notions of morality while the other story is about the intrusion of caste and societal barriers in budding love between Deepak (Vicky Kaushal) and Shalu (Shweta Tripathi).
Considered one of the rare stories of Indian cinema rooted in reality, Masaan was awarded at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival with a 5-minute long standing ovation for its poignant plot and powerful storytelling.
Watch Masaan on 11th March 2017 at 9:00 PM only on Star Gold Select HD. Enjoy the movie with just 1-intermission
