Amazon website Reviews

Jeff Bezos is the founder of Amazon dot com. He founded Amazon in 1994 and the website went live in 1995 for the whole world. Amazon is a US based multinational electronic commerce company having headquarters at Seattle, Washington. It is the world's largest retailer website. The website started as an Online book store initially but along with time it has diversified into selling, CD's, DVD's, MP3 Downloads, Computer softwares, Video games, Electronic, Apparel, Furniture, Food and toys.

There are many customer reviews about Amazon Scattered all over the internet but most of them are generally related to feedbacks and their experience with Amazon. This Review won't be any different but can definitely reveal some things which may not be familiar to Internet Newbies. Apart from the usual review, you can find out how Amazon helps people without any business to earn money. Not Many people know that Amazon is also a great affiliate program for people who want to earn money and I have seen lots of people making good money with them.

So Here I start with the Amazon Review :


  • Most trusted online store with web presence for more than 15 years.
  • You get everything you want in their webstore. 
  • There are no duplicate books available on Amazon, Each book and product has an ISBN number.
  • Great customer support as I have read on many customer reviews on the web.
  • Shipping available for many countries.
  • They have websites specifically designed for some countries like UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy Austria, Japan and China. This makes it easy to ship products faster within the country and at the same time save custom duties and other charges.
  • Most widely used for shopping of books and kindle products worldwide.
  • Have a service Called Amazon "Mechanical Turk" where people can earn money by doing simple tasks.
  • Great affiliate programs for people who cannot set-up webstore and business on large scale but can promote products of other people for a commission.
  • The Recent Kindle Invention has boosted the sales of Amazon and opened up many new opportunities for people to earn more profits by selling kindle products. It is a hot niche today.
  • A good news for Indians is that Amazon is planning to enter in India and is in talks with India's largest e-commerce stores like Flipcart dot com, Letsbuy dot com, and is in process to establish storage ware houses in Mumbai. They are planning to launch by next year 2012 in India.


  • Like Every big webstores Amazon also has some Cons to its credit, but those are usually due to bad sellers and cheaters who cheat to make a living. No system can be foolproof.
  • You will need to promote your books and tell people for your book to be seen on Amazon. It is not an easy task for a new author who launches his book or product for sale on Amazon.
  • Other Web reviews say that Amazon Authors and Publishers make less Revenue (profits) on books and products sold on Amazon. It is because Amazon takes away large share in profits as read on the web reviews (Comments are welcome on the validity of this point).
  • There is a battle for ranking books in respective areas of interest because people need to pay for their books to be listed in "FEATURED BOOKS CATEGORY".
  • More critical reviews are welcome in comments from the readers here according to their experiences.

The natural inference that flows in conclusion is, Amazon is the largest e-commerce website in the world and can be relied and trusted upon for purchase of books and other products. They also have great earning opportunities in form of "M-Turk" program and Affiliate programs for all internet users. There is a lot of competition in listing of books and people have to pay extra to get their books listed in "featured Category" to get more sales. Amazon has also been a great source of income for many of the internet marketers according to what I have seen. I hope this review turns out to be a good reading experience for you as well as gives you some idea about Earning from Amazon and utilising it to your benefit.

Review of Delhi belly/ Film Review

Delhi belly, released on July 1 2011 is an Indian comedy film Shot in English with a little Hindi. It is directed by Abhinay Deo, the son of veteran actors Ramesh and Seema deo. He is an Ad-film maker turned director and has shown a great piece of direction in the form of "Delhi belly". The Article contains Review of the film Delhi belly.

Delhi Belly - The Film review :-

Delhi Belly revolves around Three room-mates, Tashi Dorjee Lhatoo (Imran Khan), Nitin Berry (Kunaal Roy Kapur) and Arup (Vir Das) leading an unkempt and debt-ridden life. Delhi belly has been in news as it is full of adult language, catchy songs and unconventional sex shows. There are sparks of humour and vulger scences throughout the film and this is what makes it a worth watch. I bet that you will not face any boredom while watching this movie.

The film start’s with Sonia’s arrival into the city where she meets vladimir dragonsky and agrees to deliver a packet on behalf of him to the address mentioned by him. Sonia hands over the packet to Tashi who in turn asks Arup to deliver it for him. Arup then hands the packet to Nitin for delivery, But Nitin forgets to do so as he is experiencing ‘Delhi Belly’ ( stomach issues).

Thus the Package keeps floating around and is finally handed to the recipient, a gangster named Somayajulu by Arup. Apart from the package, Arup also has to deliver another package which contains Nitin’s stool sample to Nitin’s Doctor. He mixes up the two which makes Somayajulu furious and he starts the investigation by interrogating Vladimir. The film revolves around the chaos created by the interchanging of the packets.

In the meanwhile, Tashi gets attracted towards menaka, a journalist and has to incur the wrath of her ex-husband Rajiv. He starts comtemplating whether he really wants to marry sonia. Here, Vladimir informs Somayajulu that the mix-up must have been caused by Sonia as she didn’t know what she was carrying in the package. Somayajulu then calls sonia and tells her about the mix-up of the packets and also asks her to give the address of the person who was to deliver the packets. Somayajulu then goes to the address and finds Arup and makes him stand on the stool whilst his neck is tied with a tie to the ceiling. Tashi arrives at the apartment in the meanwhile to find Arup being tied to the ceiling. On interrogating Tashi, Somayajulu discovers the location of his package.

Nitin gets the packets from the doctor’s clinic and somayajulu snatches it from him to examine the 30 diamonds which are ought to be there in the packet. After finding them safe, he orders his men to kill all the three friends, Tashi, Arup and Nitin. In the meanwhile, the ceiling to which Arup is tied falls down and injures Somayajulu and his men. Tashi, Arup and nitin escape them along with the daimonds and celebrate there good fortune. They sell the daimonds to a local jewellery shop owner the very next day. But to their dismay and bad luck, Somayajulu kidnaps Sonia and threatens to kill her if they do not hand over the daimonds to him. The trio, feeling disgusted, goes to get the daimonds from the jewellery shop owner, only to be told that they will have to pay him double.

The trio starts worrying when tashi comes up with a plan. Nitin, Arup, Tashi and Menaka disguise themselves in burqa and go to the jewellery shop. They con the owner, take back their daimonds and return his money. Then they go to the hotel where somayajulu has held Sonia. In the meanwhile police also reach there following tashi’s car as they chase him for robbing the jewellery store. The trio hands over the daimonds to Somayajulu and tell him to leave sonia. Police enters the room by then and firing takes place in which only Tashi, Nitin, Arup and sonia survive. Tashi then chooses Menaka over Sonia but Menaka refuses to go with him. Later, When Menaka comes over to Tashi’s place to hand over his belongings, Tashi jumps over her car in through the open Window and Kisses her hard.
