    Why not spend this money for opening service centers all over the country instead of signing a million dollar contract with Hugh Jackman?!?!

    There’s an old Bangla saying that says that a crow cannot become a peacock just by sticking a colorful feather to it’s posterior. LOL so true 😀

    Similarly, M’max won’t become Nokia, Apple or Samsung just by signing up Wolverine LOL! Not unless they do something ’bout their reliability issues and after sales service *wtf*

    As long as M’max continues with their old ways, I’d say that they and Khilari Kumar deserve each other. “Boss ka phone – phone ka boss”. Yeah right! LMFAO!!!

        Your name kinda’ says a lot about you, jackass. That’s EXACTLY what you are. Most people who have had to deal with M’max, Karbonn, Lava, Intex etc.’s after sales service will have agreed with the above point of view – jackass.
