    Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani a.k.a Katrina Kaif

    One thing for sure is that this movie doesnt have a story. It's kinda like one of those aimless TV shows which dont have a specific plot, but by the finale of the last season, everything clears up. We watched this movie today at PVR Gold Class! Paid 750/- freaking bucks for the ticket and no...
