Whatever you do, don't panic! The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is arriving in theaters on April 29, 2005 and it's going to take you places you couldn't possibly have imagined. So get ready to settle in with a bag of buttery popcorn and blast off to the far reaches of the universe. Find out if it's going to be a bumpy ride!

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - It's the End of the World As We Know It

For anyone who hasn't read Douglas Adams' book, which the movie is based on, you might be in for a bit of a shock with this flick. It's a sci-fi adventure/comedy that introduces you to new planets, new species and has the Earth blown-up within the first few minutes of the movie. The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy is a book that contains absolutely every piece of information you could possibly need to know about the universe - and it comes in very handy for earthling Aurthur Dent, who is new to the whole traveling in space thing.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Out of This World

It may not have the special effects of The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, but The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is pretty far out. There's the two-headed President of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox, giant, slimy Volgons who love to torture their victims with poetry and computers who know the answer to life. This flick has so much going on, there's no way you're not going to be completely mesmerized by it. How often do you get to travel to space, anyway?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Interstellar Expectations

For fans of the book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy definitely won't fulfill all your expectations - but did you really think they were going to pack all the details of an 800 page book into two hours? The way things end have left things wide open for a sequel, however.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Bottom Line

Sci-fi fans will most definitely want to check this movie out! It's packed full of [kwlink]astronomy[/kwlink], life lessons, robots and aliens. It's also incredibly funny. Not guy-gets-kicked-in-the-balls funny, but the intellectually witty kind of funny. So skip watching your fave Hilary Duff DVD again and go see The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - DVD Features

It took more than 20 years to complete this movie project and now it's available on DVD to add to your movie collection. There are some cool features on this disc which include deleted scenes, a making of the movie featurette, interactive games and even a sing along! Grab a copy of this flick - it's destined to be a classic.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.
