I kid, I kid! I'm actually reviewing the film myself later this week and I promise you I will keep an open mind. I'm sure it's a good film that the people who made that Marigold Hotel movie a smash hit will enjoy muchly, I'm just not sure it's a Masterpiece of Cinema.
A.O. Scott gives it a lovely write-up in the New York Times--didn't trust this one to Saltz, eh?--that compares it to a 1940s Hollywood drama.
The LA Times ranks it with Eat Drink Man Woman.
Indie Wire thinks it's a rom-com but enjoys it and also makes mention of a three-act structure, which I was suspecting since all the Western reviewers seemed to immediately grasp it.
(Meanwhile, I'm definitely skipping Shaadi Ke Side Effects. A nagging Vidya Balan is the last thing I'd like to spend my free time watching.)
