It’s that time of the year when the symphony of raindrops landing on the parched leaves evokes poetic romance while we sip a piping hot tea enjoying the monsoon musings.

This July, ZEE Biskope is geared up to treat its viewers with a host of monsoon memories. The Sawan celebrations would commence with two film festivals: Cinema and  Aaaya Sawan Choom Ke, making it a Sawan to remember for all the right reasons.
