Founder and Editor-in-Chief
Gautam was working as a Management Consultant helping top-rung clients find effective business solutions before he decided to quit his high-profile job and start Cinemaholic. The global exposure of speaking and spending time with top leaders in the industry had convinced him that there’s nothing more challenging and fun than following your passion. So, with the goal to provide information to movie and tv lovers that they can truly rely upon and trust, he began his Cinemaholic journey. But his bigger mission has always been to create a platform where people can come to learn about cinema and appreciate all its forms. His belief is that Cinemaholic will help more and more people realize that movies are not just mere entertainment, but there is magic in them; they have the power to change lives.
Research & Strategy Manager
An MBA by qualification and a cinephile by passion, Akhilesh is also very fervid about numbers and data crunching and has survived a complete mathematical breakdown more than once. Before commencing his stint with Cinemaholic in 2017, Akhilesh was (still is, to an extent) a couch potato who would binge innumerate movies and television shows in a day, and even relentlessly rant about them on a romantic date. At Cinemaholic, his most important responsibility is to make sure that the information provided on the site is reliable and accurate. In a world where fake news is rampant, he considers his role both a challenge and a moral obligation.
Diksha joined Cinemaholic in 2017 as a part-time writer, but her increasingly popular "explainers" paved way for her to become a full-time writer in 2018. She loves binge-watching and can spend hours talking about movies and TV shows. From sci-fi to musicals, from Hitchcock to Linklater, she loves them all. She has a Master's degree in History and can read/write multiple languages including Hindi, Mandarin and Russian. Being quadrilingual, a count she aims to increase, allows her to enjoy the literature and the cinema of various countries in the pure form, unhindered by translation. Before joining Cinemaholic, she was a professional freelance book reviewer.
Dhruv strongly believes that you never know where you're going unless you actually get there. After completing his engineering, he delved into marketing for a short while, not realizing at the time that writing was his true calling. Though, there’s one thing he has loved all his life: anime. What started off as an expression of his dream to look like Goku soon turned into an obsession towards writing about Goku and his other favorite anime characters. Having watched more than thousand different kind of anime shows and movies, he joined Cinemaholic as the resident anime expert. As an anime writer, he loves to transport his readers to a magical world of flawed heroes, goofy villains and untamed land.
A bookworm, nature lover, dictionary addict, avid traveler, music geek, but above all, a television nerd, Anisha loves to go deep into the nitty-gritty of any series or movie she watches. She has many academic degrees to her name: B.Tech, MBA (IIM Udaipur), and MS (Purdue University, Indiana), but she loves writing more than anything else. After freelancing for a couple of years, she joined Cinemaholic in 2018 as a full-time writer. A devoted fan of Shakespeare, thrillers, and fantasy, Anisha has to decipher the tiniest detail of anything she devours. Otherwise, there's no peace! When not writing about Netflix shows, you can find her curled up with a novel, daydreaming, penning poetry, or having deep conversations with her pooches.
Shuvrajit Das Biswas
Shuvrajit has a Master’s degree in English from Jadavpur University, where he also took up Film Studies. He has loved movies since his childhood, but his formal education helped him get acquainted with theoretical tracts and philosophical premises, which only made his appreciation for films more nuanced. During his college days, he began to indulge in television shows and soon found himself "binging", before Netflix had popularized the term. Writing about films and shows was a natural transition for him after that. After spending a year working as a writer/editor at a reputed news organization, Shuvrajit joined Cinemaholic as a full time writer in 2019.
Prizmi was introduced to cinema by her father at an early age. Since then she has been in love with one of mankind's greatest inventions. She is fascinated by storytelling in all its myriad forms: books, films, television, podcasts and theatre. When she’s not re-reading a Stephen King novel or re-watching a Tarantino film, Prizmi likes to scour the internet for any underrated gems she is yet to feast on. She can also spend hours expanding her knowledge on psychopaths and infamous killers. A few years into the world of finance made Prizmi realize her inner calling. She then went on to pursue Journalism. Before joining The Cinemaholic in 2019, Prizmi was a web-series producer and voice over artist.
Japleen fell in love with books at an early age and continues to be enraptured by the world that they offer. She spent most of her teen years devouring J.K. Rowling and Shakespeare and eventually, losing herself in psychological thrillers like Rebecca and Gone Girl. Before she knew it, her love for stories had translated into other forms of storytelling. Slowly but surely, she also developed a great sense of admiration for visual media. She has a Masters Degree in English Literature and loves to write about people and characters in films and tv shows. In 2020, Cinemaholic gave her the opportunity to transmute her heart’s calling into a full-time job.
A Math grad from the University of California, Irvine, Noor soon realized the numbers that truly caught her interest were the progressing episodes of series after series on Netflix. Genres she can’t get enough of include thrillers, good ole’ fashioned comedy, anime (since recent times) and not that she’d admit it in a large crowd, reality TV. Her love for the screen soon translated into the search for a suitable avenue where her interests could be professionally employed - a search that ended with her joining The Cinemaholic. If not in front of a screen she can be found cuddling with her dogs, or behind a lens capturing places, people, and moments that catch her eye.
Vrinda is a Fashion Design graduate and started her career in the fashion industry as a features writer and styling assistant. But all she really wanted to do was stay home and binge on movies and TV shows, old favorites and new ones. She can talk films for hours on end, discussing the really good cinema, the really bad, and anything in between. Vrinda enjoys everything - from epic fantasies to horror, from rom-coms to crime and action thrillers, from sci-fi to musical dramas, Vrinda believes all movies are works of art and should be appreciated as such. But her true everlasting love (bordering on obsession) is actually animation and Korean TV dramas. She has even taught herself elementary Korean just by binge-watching K-dramas
Kriti is a business graduate with a proclivity towards words and stories. With the inquisitiveness to understand different perceptions and the belief that every character or situation leaves something for us to learn from, she is rarely ever seen without a book in hand. She can immerse herself into a good story no matter the genre or form and only come out from it when she's had her fill. With her observational skills and a newfound passion for the visual representation of stories, she decided to join The Cinemaholic, a platform where she can express her love for words and stories.
For as long as Tamal can remember, he has understood the reality around him through the tinted glasses of works of fiction, be it books, films, TV shows, or anime. An English graduate, he wrote articles on a wide array of topics for several years, from entertainment and pop culture to history and literature. Before that, he was an educator and a roleplay game writer and developer. It is his deeply-rooted love for performing arts and visual media that led him to become a part of the Cinemaholic team in 2020.
Ayesha has more than four years of experience working as a freelance writer for reputed publishers. She joined Cinemaholic in 2016 as a part-time writer and soon became one of the top contributors for the site. She has a keen eye for detail and loves researching as much as writing. What she also loves is trying out new tv shows. The fact that she gets to write about all the tv shows she loves is icing on the cake.
