No, not really. I've never liked romantic comedies (with the exception of My Big Fat Greek Wedding
, but I think that's because I find it to be more of a culture conflict comedy than a romantic comedy, if that makes any sense), and frankly, I find it annoying when things I wouldn't normally like become must-sees. I'm sorry, but the most popular books/movies/videos/whatever are just not for me.

I think usually I see "INTERMISSION," and I saw that with KKHH, too. Actually, I think I normally see this in most Indian movies
, but not in...I dunno, the ones with the most realistic plots? Lol. I mean, I don't think Ankur
(Hindi/Urdu, 1974), Swami
(Hindi/Urdu, 1977), Ghatashraddha
(Kannada, 1977), Vanaprastham
(Malayalam, 1999), Nizhalkuthu
(Malayalam, 2002), or any movie by Satyajit Ray
has an intermission. (Some of Satyajit Ray's movies are very short, too).
In Malayalam, they may say "INTERMISSION," "ഇടവേള" ([jiɖəˈʋeːɭa] 'intermission', literally 'period in the middle' or something like that I think), "വിശ്രമവേള" ([ʋiɕrə̃məˈʋeːɭa], literally 'rest period') or something that looks really dramatic like this one from the movie Meesa Madhavan
(rough translation: "Intermission...To be continued...")
and then some other stuff I forget lol.
