Pre-planned, heh?

What does pre-planned mean? If it's planned on the go, it's not a plan: it's an improvization.

On a similar vein, मुझे पहले से पता था can be truncated to मुझे पता था. Of course, the stress is more often used when the speaker wants to really convince you that (s)he had seen the whole thing coming much, much before.

And what is pre-recorded? Either it is recorded or live - those are the only two options. There is no third unless we can gaze into the future.
