I just finished watching this movie and thought I should pen down my thoughts. I would like to add a few disclaimers before recommending it.
For viewers who expect a romantic comedy, this is not your average rom-com genre movie. And for avid movie buffs, this ain't the first attempt of its kind either. This has shades of Trust (1990), Music and Lyrics (2007), As Good as it Gets (1997) and a few others.
But the familiarity worked for me. Also, not knowing what the movie was about did work for me too.
Watch this if you want a romance with quirky and intelligent characterization. Considering, it is both the writer's and the director's debut feature film, it is fantastic.
