Even before going to a movie we check the reviews in the newspaper or online on some website. These days it is not just the case with movies, be it a vacation or a simple lunch, we all don't go out before checking the reviews. The only problem is that these reviews are less in number and at the same time are scattered as well. Shroodo is here to solve that problem for its users with a unified platform where they can find an ample number of genuine reviews and write one themselves.
