Mumbai: October 16 2020.

It’s that time of the year when the skies are lit with flaming anaars, sparkling phuljadis and smoking rockets. As we gear up for a dhamakedaar festive season, it’s time to shrug off the gloom from the past and celebrate ‘we time’ with the festivities on Zee Café. It’s truly a beautiful sight to behold as friends and families come together for a spectacle of fireworks from Hollywood on ‘Café Pataakha Fest’. Starting Sunday, 19th October, weeknights at 10 and a weekend binge starting 9am onwards, good fortunes are right around the corner with Zee Café bringing you the finest entertainment this month from its archive of titular shows and movies right on your screens.

The dazzling line-up kickstarts with the all new L.A.’s Finest Season 2 airing weeknights at 10PM. Starring Jessica Alba (Sin City) and Gabrielle Union (Bad Boys II), this is the kind of cop action you are looking for to light up your weekdays with big guns and fiery explosions. It’s time to lock and load as the deadly duo return to take you through the labyrinth of Los Angeles’ gang ridden badlands as they take lead to rain down fury on the bad guys.

Stay blazed on weekends with the best episodes of your favourite shows staring 9AM onwards airing all day long. Award-winning reality cooking show MasterChef Australia Season 8 takes centre stage this month as home cooks scurry around the kitchen to produce a unique palette of flavours to win the prestigious title of Australia’s finest chef. Situational comedy has always found its place on Zee Café with 80’s hit series Seinfeld starring Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards. The cherry on the top is the iconic television show I Dream Of Jeannie starring Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman that tells the story of 2,000-year-old genie who falls in love with an astronaut, her knight in shining armour who rescues her from her recluse confinement into a new world filled with adventure and excitement.

There are tonnes of more ‘pataakhas’ to look forward to straight from Hollywood with blockbuster movies such as 2020s superhero-hit ‘Bloodshot’ starring Vin Diesel, Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood’ and the Resident Evil series.
