Storyline

Politics makes strange bedfellows, but never stranger than when a month before the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, a beautiful, idealistic local Obama volunteer coordinator reluctantly falls for her Republican counterpart: a sexy, savvy, African American conservative. Sparks fly, tempers flares, heads turn, and romance blossoms for this mismatched pair of campaigners in the frantic and intoxicating days leading up to Election Day. Can the politics of love conquer all? Written by Nuclear Mango

politics ugly!! "politics of love" uglier!!
2 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This wasn't the first politics based movie I was gonna watch, nor the first one with a bollywood actress! Yet I had a rush in me to watch it all the way through, catching up from its "car wash teaser" to "love barrack" trailer. And when I finally watch the movie, was dumbstruck, wondering why was it fussy all along!!

I would like to call it a stale attempt at making a light-hearted column or at best a youtube short film into celluloid. The script so lazy with touch humor in parts – or not at all, cold blooded characters and a lousy climax makes up all too boring that it would seem crude to term it a romcom. And u wouldn't believe how inane was the text messages, the dining, dating and making out scenes with shades of romantic comedies you have seen elsewhere. Politics which supposedly should be the centre plot is sadly dumped and overshadowed by those inane sub plots which were emotionally erratic. The characters easily forgettable save mallika sherawat who played Aretha, the democrat volunteer. She was strictly congruent as the Indian lady. Brian white was just another guy for me, nothing stands out.

If there's a substandard bar for keeping forgettable movies out, I would recommend Politics of love hit rock bottom, for it's genuinely worth dumping. Politics has never been this ugly!!
