I hate Luv Storys

Watched I hate luv storys this Friday night. I liked the movie even though those who went with me, did not like it!

There was as such nothing new in the movie from story per say, but I enjoyed the presentation, fast flowing script and acting of Sonam A Kapoor and Imran Khan. Sonam was really awesome. She looked awesome and acted very well. Songs were good. Overall, I can give the movie 3.5-4/5. I mean I like such simple movies, without too much drama. Give me old wine in a new bottle, and I will savor it.

Movie Outing

Went for I hate luv storys on Friday night with some friends here. We went to Big Cinemas in North Bergen, 10 PM show.

First a small and brief review of the theater. The theater kind of sucks big time. Looks like after Big Cinemas purchased this property, they decided to go on a cost cutting spree, overlooking everything. Let’s start from the ticket counter. Even though there were 6 counters, only one was being operated and there were at least 30 people in queue. After 15 minutes or so, one more and then 5 more more minutes and one more counter was functional. Once we get inside, there’s nothing really good to eat. I am sure they outsourced this snack joint to some Gujju family (no offence guys) who are more concerned with minting money. The quality of food and drinks (especially tea) sucks big time.

Once we actually entered the theater and took our seats, the real frustration began for me (at least). The ystarted showing ads for Sony Television in a repeated loop. They showed Sony’s serials and all stuff for (am sure) at least 15 minutes. After that, they ran an adv for some medical college in Antigua 4 times! WTF. And not to forget, 4 or more times, a caption for contacting someone for buying space for advertisement! Dude, you are supposed to show trailers of upcoming movies (this is not asking much) and not start advertising some crap , and that also 4-5 times.

I know, I am not going to go to that theater again!
