I am sorry to announce that I have made a decision to officially close Cypsis' Blog.

All the reviews stay up as they are, but I will not write more reviews. Cypsis' Blog had many ups-and-downs during those 7 years and I have tried to give the best I could, but unfortunately my life has moved on so much that finding time for reviewing has become more and more difficult. Closing the blog is breaking my heart, but I have thought a lot about it and understood that it is for the best. I am very thankful to everybody who have enjoyed reading my reviews.
(PS. I am still continuing to watch Asian dramas and you can always find me on

Thank you for all these 7 years. I hope that those 240 reviews made you happy. I truly had unforgettable time writing them!

Sincerely, Cypsis

Jay and Simran must work together despite the totally different views of life. They soon find that the first impression of each other had turned out to be wrong and they find each other to actually be pretty amazing. 
Rating: 3/5
This was my first hindi movie, which I have seen. At the start it was hard to get used to English-Hindi mix, but it was new thing to try ^^  Original title is "I hate luv storys", but I hope you forgive me that I correct the mistake and wrote title as "I hate love stories"...
It is totally cliched movie, but it works. You will know almost everything before watching it, but believe me - it is actually damn romantic and cute movie. It also has many song parts in it - you might find music videos from online too, if you do not want whole movie, you can make a preview from music videos. Movie includes many Bollywoodish things, it still is a Hindi movie.
Total high points are dialogues. They are so funny and there are many great sayings. Sadly I have written down only one of them. "Girls are like buses. One goes away, another one comes. But only one bus takes you home".
But to the story lines now. Jay really was just a friend. He did not see Simran as a woman, but at the same time I believe that all woman would have fallen for him, when he acted so kindly with Simran. All those gifts and out goings, where so cute. I understand why Simran misunderstood him. At the same time I liked that Jay actually changed. He changed from jerk to cool, money-making nice guy.
Simran was eem... really really big romantic. I liked that movie shows clearly how the feelings develop. It is not some kind of love at the first sight. They get to know each other at first. And I must say that Sonam Kapoor is sooo beautiful (I actually started to like Hindi actors/actresses since I saw "Aladdin"  - even though it is animated... Yeah, my friend just reminded me that Aladdin was Arabian ... my bad)  Simran had always that romantic wind in her hair XD At some points it was so ridiculous.
As for Raji.. I hoped that he would cheat on Simran, but actually it turned out to be more appealing ^^
Some parts of the movie are actually filmed in New Zealand, so there are many beautiful scenery's.

SPOILER review: I liked that Simran told no to Jay when he confessed to her later, it made things more interesting. Also I liked that Raji did not know anything about Simran. XD Those white flowers and red color were so sad...
The end when Jay was going on a plane and then all the stuff start to happen was so cute. Maybe there are signs of fate.
