MUMBAI, INDIA (GaeaTimes.com)- Bollywood hunk John Abraham’s latest flick “Jhootha Hi Sahi” hits theaters across the country today.

Even the director’s latest flick “Jhootha Hi Sahi” is another peppy romantic movie that has already created quite a buzz among the audiences prior to its release.
The Abbas Tyrewala directed movie is set entirely in London and it tells the tale of a nerdy book store owner Sid played by John Abraham.

The reviews that “Jhootha Hi Sahi” has received till now has mostly been mixed with many critics slamming the movie as another run-of-the-mill Bollywood movie with a predictable storyline.
