Our soon to be released Indian-Australian feature film MY CORNERSTONE – which will screen in cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth from October 9th and then internationally later this year – has featured again in the Inside Film (IF) Magazine, the Down Under film industry chronicle.


The article, by IF Magazine columnist Don Groves, follows (unabridged):

My Cornerstone, an international romantic comedy filmed in Sydney, greater NSW and Mumbai, opens in cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth on October 9.

Scripted by James Morcan, the plot covers contemporary issues in both Australian society and Indian communities in a fun and sexy fashion.

Like other successful cross-cultural films such as Bride and Prejudice and Bend It Like Beckham, we believe My Cornerstone has the potential to become a mainstream crowd-pleaser with both traditional Australian audiences and ex-pat Indian cinemagoers alike.

Later this year the film will screen in cinemas in various countries worldwide, followed by an eventual international DVD release.

The director and producer, Indian-Australian filmmaker Stanley Joseph of World Pictures Australia PTY Ltd, is a well-known musician and Bollywood composer turned director who lives in Sydney.


The storyline reflects some of his own experiences as an Indian migrant in Australia. My Cornerstone is Stanley’s second feature film to date (with a third feature currently in post-production and due for release in 2015).

The film’s multicultural cast includes some of the brightest up-and-coming actors from Australia and India. My Cornerstone’s lead actress, 24 year-old Indian-Australian Zenia Starr, was recently crowned Miss India Australia and was a contestant in the 2013 Miss India Worldwide beauty pageant.


As a result of her role in My Cornerstone and other productions including the recent Australian indie film Backyard Ashes, Zenia is becoming a renowned name in both the Bollywood and Australasian film industries.
