Dream City Dream Girl

Dreamcity, Dreamgirl: One of the most wonderful things about living in the UAE is being able to experience living as an expat, among other expats. In that sense, you don’t feel isolated; we’re all on the same boat, coming from all over the world seeking similar things.


This attractive city breaks records, from the ‘world’s highest’, to ‘the world’s largest’, to ‘the world’s highest’, to ‘the world’s first’ accreditations. But another thing worth noting that this region has been really great at is adopting a hybrid culture evolved by the fusion of subcultures. As it welcomes people from around the world, it’s one of the most interesting places in the world from so many aspects, as you’re exposed to the local Arab culture, but also a very western culture. With this dynamic comes the mix of how people express themselves through fashion, culture and national dress, all roaming about in harmony. Of course it doesn’t stop there; how is it possible for it to not offer a range of cuisines? One can only imagine.


Beyond all the entertainment you can find in this bustling city, for me as a TV and movie lover, I was afraid to lose out on one of my favourite entertainment outlets when I left India; access to my favourite shows.


In this day and age, it’s great to be able to have the freedom of streaming or downloading shows and movies online, but sometimes I just can’t be bothered to wait for it to download, and other times, when it does download, the resolution can be too low and grainy. It’s also frustrating when streaming, if the connection is weak, I face interruptions while I wait for the frame to buffer and catch up. We’ve all experienced this.


OSN actually had the best collection of Hindi channels that covers the latest shows and movies with 40 channels targeted for Hindi, Pakistani and Malu. I haven’t come across any other network that has tapped into the demands of this region, and offers this much choice. Read more information the OSN offers here


Currently my favourite two shows are the comedy-drama Tu Mera Hero (English: You Are My Hero) on Star Plus Middle East, and Dreamgirl on Life OK Middle East.


But I also find so much more to watch on the OSN package, with Star Movies HD, Zee Cinema and Zee TV, Sony MAX Middle East, Star Gold, UTV movies and so many more.
