Singham

Yesterday was the world premier of the movie Singham, starring Ajay Devgan. World premier is just a euphemism to say that the distributors of the movie want to extract a bit more from television advertisements.

It’s always shone as a rosy picture that technology being at a zenith […]

Luck By Chance
