Movie Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

April 4, 2012 William 0 Comments

Well where to begin, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie the cast have been fantastically chosen for their roles and they play them beautifully. It is very well put together, with the opening giving a background to each individual character but without taking too long to do it.

The storyline is creative and if you’re from the UK the references to home will make you chuckle.

This movie reminded me of another one of my favourites Keeping Mum which also stars Maggie Smith.

Not long into the movie the emotional rollercoaster begins, but you are left with the sad feeling one moment and a warm fuzzy moment the next. The culture references throughout are hilarious, but it also shows a real snapshot into Indian culture and custom.

To sum up, I would call it a love story with a bunch of humour thrown in which just makes one happy!

My Rating: 9/10
