Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight : True Romance

Three years ago, a friend told me about two movies and ‘Nothing happening in the movie except conversations.’ and I think, Well, the guy who made the movies must have a lot of guts to have faith in his audience.

Karan Johar and Dharma Productions prove that they do family like no other. I have always believed, when it comes to family, and people, and understanding the family dynamics, Karan Johar does it the best.
