    • Pindi Boys Download movie in Rs. 20, Watch it on mobile sitting in Air conditioned Centaurus by spending Rs. 100 and return home in Rs. 20 with downloading another movie for night. 140 total kharcha for 2 movies. the reason our cinema industry is not Flourishing.

      • Well boy our cinema industry is not flourishing apparently, but looks like your Centaurs Mall is totally beholden on Pindi Boys paying Rs. 100 on every visit. :)

      • i disagree on the cinema part as no country in the world bans downloading movies. i mean there’s always a way to download anything u want.

  • I don’t know whether the Wifi router is installed in the Metro Bus or not the only time I traveled in Metro and tried to use free wifi in the bus it only connected when the bus stopped at station for 15 seconds and soon as the bus leaves the station my wifi also get disconnected and thus out of range.
