For Mumbai’s enterprising janta, no place is far and inaccessible. When it comes to one of the finest multiplexes in the city – 24 Karat Multiplex, albeit, secluded amidst the slum-industrial area of Jogeshwari (W), is such an example.
Owned by the same people who own Jaipur’s Raj Mandir, 24 Karat is a family entertainment hub.
As you enter the gates, you can see this vast multiplex which boasts of 4 screen cinema halls, a food court, a well managed box office and parking space area. The main entrance of the building is designed with posters of movies of yester years.
The ground level foyer has beautiful Rajasthani stone work on the floor and 2 Gold-leaf coated pillars and view from there to the ceiling makes one marvel at the beauty of the place. The decor of the entire place is classy and rich.
The 4 audis provide comfortable plush seating to enrich your viewing. The concessions are well stocked and provide refreshments at not very high rates. As most multiplexes are family entertainment centres, 24 Karat has arcade games and an internet station too. 24 Karat also offers a banquet and a terrace hall to host parties and special occasions.
But I guess the pride of the multiplex is the hand painted mural of Mughal-E-Azam. I assume that it is about 40 feet high and any viewers delight.
The ticket prices are less as compared to most of the multiplexes around the city but the surrounding area is not too great. The crowd coming in is decent though.
24 Karat for all its grandeur is worth a try especially if you want tickets on weekends.
