Dhoom 3

Dhoom 3

An event that has been really irking me for the past few days has been the release of Dhoom 3 in Pakistan and the way it’s been publicized by the self-acclaimed media leader of Pakistan, GEO network, like if it’s the best thing happened to the country in recent past.

To start off with I would really like to make it clear that I have absolutely nothing against the release of Indian movies. I believe that our nation already faces some serious drought of entertainment and if something entertains them well and makes them happy no matter where it comes from, it should prevail here, obviously abiding by the necessary rules and regulation in this regard.
