The High Commission of Jamaica in New Delhi in association with PVR INOX hosted an exclusive premiere of the highly anticipated Paramount Pictures Bob Marley Biopic, “One Love”. The event took place on February 15, 2024 at Delhi’s iconic PVR Priya Cinema at Basant Lok Complex, Vasant Vihar among the presence of film critics/reviewers, media, brand partners and officials from the Jamaican Embassy and PVR INOX.

According to His Excellency, Jason K. Hall, High Commissioner of Jamaica to India, “Bob Marley is undoubtedly one of Jamaica’s greatest sons and perhaps the greatest musician of all time, based on the impact of his music inspiring billions around the world, irrespective of race or creed. His message, the embodiment of “One Love”, fighting against oppression, injustice and inequality, giving voice to the voiceless, calling for peace, unity and love, is as relevant today as it was back then, over 40 years ago, perhaps even more so as our planet contends with wars on multiple fronts, the onslaught of climate change. It is a tremendous honour to be able to share this story with India and I hope that it will inspire us all to be more compassionate, more caring and above all be One in Love. “Let’s get together and feel all right”.

PVR INOX is known for showcasing a wide array of films from diverse countries, including those from world cinema organizing special screenings and festivals offering audiences a chance to delve into and enjoy cinema beyond the realms of mainstream Hollywood or local releases.
