  • only 10k titles compared to netflix's 65k. and the 10k includes regional movies as well
  • site movie search sucks since it searches for words like "of" "it" etc. too.
  • they have a genre called tragedy. and its only for regional movies. wtf?
  • only one movie of kubrick ( barry lyndon ), none of godard, and only one by kurosawa ( "ran" ), no truffaut, no bergman, no bresson. lame.
  • bad data. when did de palma make "asambhav lakshya"?
  • the 90s called, they want their vcds back. most of the goldies are available only as vcds. yuck.
  • It takes 1 business day to deliver your movies and 2 to take them back. And max 2 at a time ( both at once btw ). Doing a small math, you would be lucky if you can get 4 per week and hence about 16 per month ( consider yourself very lucky ). So unlimited == 16.
  • No you cant return the movie directly at their office. This is answer to Q 31 in their FAQ. So no room watsoever for greed. such good souls. gotta learn to appreciate them.
seventymm sucks porcupine testicles. I waaaaaaant netflix as-is in india.

short tale - 6

"i should finish off this ugly radish curry first. god its sooo repulsive, atleast i could've thrown up if it was mom. hmmm.. poor aunty will feel bad if i say i dont like it. lemme finish it off first so i can enjoy my piping hot aloo curry and eggs with this steaming hot rice....".. raghu thought to himself while stuffing his mouth with the yucky radish. "he must be really loving my radish to be hogging it like that.. poor boy.. i think his mom doesnt make radish much.. " thought aunty at around the same time. "here raghu, very tasty isnt it? i learnt to make it from tv you know..." said aunty with her big colgate smile as she served raghu a monstrous helping of the radish curry.

over the hills and far away

leeches are fun
and so is the rain
dont forget to run
or you'll end up in pain
