Sangati Creations’ maiden venture, mega Konkani film ‘Zanvoy No. 1’ written and directed by well-known Bollywood director Harry Fernandes Barkur, for the first time with twin shows on the same day received an overwhelming response with more than full house shows both in Sharjah & Abu Dhabi on Friday the 1st February, 2019 at 1.30 pm.
In Sharjah there were chaos in the Theater as Konkani lovers poured in more than the available tickets and it was difficult to manage. Audience sat on the stairs to watch the movie and as the formal inauguration was difficult to conduct before the show, MC Uttam Menzes ably conducted it during the interval. Patron of Sharjah Karnataka Sangha, Mark Denis and well-known supporter of Konkani, Cynthia Goveas did the honours. Mark Denis spoke well and requested the audience to show the same support always.
In Abu Dhabi it was a pre-houseful and still people came in requesting for more tickets for their dear and near ones. Shodhan Prasad welcomed the audience and introduced and thanked Valerian Dalmaida the current President of KCO who was elected for the 2nd term in record and who was the main person in making Zanvoy No.1 complete success in Abu Dhabi. Shodhan also introduced the Team of Zanvoy No. 1, Deepak Paladka & Ranjitha Lewis. Later he invited the Guests Leo Rodrigues, Walter Almeida, Dolphy Vas, Michael D’Silva, Gerry D’Mello, Robert Pinto, Darick Pinto & Bhasker Shetty who have helped in the success of Zanvoy No. 1 release in Abu Dhabi. Sandhya Shodhan of Sandhya Creations welcomed all the guests with ‘Rose’.
Shodhan then announced the sad demise of Dinesh Fernandes and said that his wife Cynthia was always in our Team supporting but we missed her presence today because of the untimely demise of her husband. He requested the audience to stand up for condolence prayer in respect for the departed soul. Valerian Dalmaida did the condolence prayer and everybody prayed for the soul to rest in peace. In Sharjah too Uttam Menezes did the condolence prayer and a one-minute prayer was rendered.
Audience in both the places thoroughly enjoyed the movie which was reflected in the comments they gave in the camera after the show.
Zanvoy No.1 is already released in Mangalore, Goa and Mumbai successfully during April 2018 onwards having special shows in various places in India. Soon after UAE release, ZANVOY No.1 will also be released in Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and Israel. Plans are there to screen the movies in London & USA.
