Since I was a kid I used to wonder how movies are made, who are these people who act in the films. I would be so traumatized if a hero would die in a movie and then would be shocked to see him back alive again in another movie. Amazing it was and movies always held their charm in my life. Now times are different and we all know that the hero does not die.
Well, whatever the times the fun of seeing a movie in the theaters has been the same over the years. So here I am with Movie Time to let you know the releases in India this week.
