What happens when two people that never should date end up on the course to marriage? Nothing good, at least not without a few songs, a few flashbacks and a mission.
Gori Tere Pyar Mein, released last Fall, making it the second directorial project from filmmaker Punit Malhotra. And though I enjoyed the premise and cheekiness of his debut film, I Hate Luv Storys, GTPM, made quite a different impression.

As promised, Dharma Productions released their first teaser for their newest rom-com featuring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor-Khan on Tues.

Anticipation can be exhilarating and waiting for this film has been just that. For with every additional chunk of news concerning this film has just made me want more. The promotion for this film has been going on for awhile, but it has spread far enough that in the end, it’s been just enough, right when I needed it. And unlike most promotional material, I was just as excited as the first time, right up until it’s premiere.
