IPL: Is it worth a watch

Let me start of by saying that I don’t like watching cricket. I’m too impatient to spend my whole day or even worse, five days, in watching a match which is more or less the same throughout.

Except a handful of people, almost everyone I know told me to watch 3 Idiots and what a great movie it is. There was a time when it became the topic of discussion not only among students but during the class as well. Teachers started coating it and of course talked about characters and incidences every now and then. It was then that I finally decided to watch the movie, and to tell you the truth I did not liked it. Read more
