Today the world is moving at a very fast pace and people often run out of time. Everyone likes to go to a theatre or may be catch up a movie at a friend’s place but most of the times people are so busy that they do not get the adequate amount of leisure time they deserve. Here the internet has played a pioneering role, with the provision of services like movie downloads the people are provided a channel where they can get access to their favorite movies and they can pass time in the best possible manner they like.

With the increasing response to such a medium the movie makers have taken up to this task pretty seriously as well. Today most of the movies may be regional, Hollywood, documentary, animated etc, everything is available online via movie downloads.

Of course, it is not always practical or desirable to go out and watch a movie at a cinema of movie theatre. This is where new technology comes in! It is now possible to watch a movie at virtually any time you want to, and through a variety of mediums.

Over the last few years many new movie downloading sites have sprung up. This means that whenever you want to watch a film, you can no do so. The sites operate in different ways. Some require you to pay just a one off payment for the movie that you are going to download. Others will want you to pay a monthly subscription, or in some cases a yearly subscription. This will usually work out to be the most cost effective option if you enjoy watching movies and intend to download lots of them from the Internet site.

The movies are often categorized, so that it is easy to find just the right movie for your mood. Categories might include such things as romance, action, thriller or animated, or they may be categorized in a different way, for example, by title. But whatever you taste in movies, you can be sure of finding one that suits your mood, for a very reasonable cost. Once the movie is downloaded, it is often possible to copy it onto CD so that you can watch it at other times.

Akshay Kumar is at the top and no questions asked. He has reportedly signed a three-film contract with a company for the heart-stopping figure of Rs. 41 crores. His looks are smashing, heatile to slip into action, suspense, comedy, drama, thrills, the works like no actor among his peers can. And that is a fact. But what clinches his stakes in this competitive market is the economic viability of his films. He has been delivering thumping hits without a break with producers and financiers laughing all the way to the bank. In this rat-race where no one spares even Shahrukh Khan for a flop, Akshay Kumar has performed a hat-trick of hits in a continuous series – NAMASTEY LONDON, HEYY BABYY and BHOOL BHULAIYAN. His film WELCOME has just released and is still counting the gate money… Shoma A Chatterji pins him down for a conversation.

One of the best interviews of the superstar we have read in ages. Akshay Kumar gets candid in this mid-day interview and talks about the success of Kambakht Ishq, on his movie beating Veer Zaara’s record in Pakistan, the critics who trashed the film (yeah, including us), his near death experience with Sharks while shooting for Blue, on his decision to work again with Nikhil Advani who directed Chandni Chowk to China, on why he doesn’t like late-night parties, in two or three years.. Shocking? Read on..

– The impressive opening of Kambakht Ishq and its collections at the box-office must have pleased you.
Akshay Kumar : I am very happy with the results. Nowadays, if the beginning is good, everything is good. And we’ve come with 2030 screenings, which is huge. Someone was just telling me that it has beaten all records in Pakistan and it has already made over Rs 50 lakhs there. Until now, the biggest hit across the border was Veer Zara but Kambhakkt Ishq has already surpassed that. The film’s success reassured our faith in it.

– The critics trashed KI.
Akshay Kumar : Yes, the critics panned it. Sometimes I understand it.

– Were you expecting it?
Akshay Kumar : Yes, I was. Because it is not a critic-friendly film. Like critics all over the world gave The Transporter a one-star rating but they made 350 million dollars in the first week. Some films are critic-proof. They do good business despite what the reviews say. That’s because such films always have an audience. Whether it is good or bad, it’s the kind of film people want to go and watch.

– The Transporter is an action film your forte. Why aren’t you doing those kind of films?
Akshay Kumar : I am not moving away from action. I did it in Chandi Chowk To China. I did kung-fu and everything that was needed.
