No offense intended, but hats off to SRK and Adi Chopra fans :) . First DDLJ,(I luckily haven't seen Mohabbatein till now) and now RNBDJ. Don't you feel as I do, that both the movies could have been compressed into an hour and half long flick, and they would have been equally entertaining and less irritating?
Now just waiting for some fanboy to use the parting line,so tht I can laugh my heart out :P
