Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) Review

A one-paragraph review of APKGK.

Vivek Oberoi is the one in Prince It's Showtime (2010) Upcoming Hindi Movie - Stills and Theatrical Trailer Release

The theatrical preview trailer is fascinating to watch. You almost ask the question ... and then you get the answer to the question "What would have happened if Jason Bourne andNeo were rolled into one character ?"
