politics ugly!! "politics of love" uglier!!

2/10
Author: Binoy Santhakumar (bonzybino) from India
2 October 2011

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!!

Politically biased hack job

1/10

I like romantic comedies and even though this movie was supposed to have a political backdrop I watched it anyways. I thought that this movie would be a remake of "Speechless" with Geena Davis and Micheal Keaton. First off this movie is not a romance movie with a political backdrop, but instead it is a politically biased hack job with a romance as the backdrop. The movie doesn't waist any opportunity to show republicans in a bad light and Obama and democrats as the best thing to ever happen the America. Save yourself the waist of time that is this movie and if you are looking for a romantic movie set to a backdrop of politics then watch "Speechless" instead. Speechless was not a great movie, but compared to this it is.

90 Minutes of my life that I will never get back

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

B Grade actors for a B Grade film.

I am not sure why they made this film.

It is difficult to ever warm to the characters nor get involved.

The plot is about 2 political campaigners from opposite camps falling in love. Very predictable with no emotion.

With only one part of the film mildly funny, this film will not cheer you up.

The best part of the film was the credits.

Watch something else......

I wish I did.

I watched lots of Hollywood movies credited Bollywood's actor's, in this movie Miss Mallika did a great and praiseworthy role, the story and concept of the movie is very interesting, watch and rate yourself, never judge a movie by others reviews, because every person have a different taste, I found this movie very interesting and praiseworthy, all actors did a great job, The movie is Directed Well, casting is great and fits The story criteria, and people who are criticizing Bollywood actors, they should stop this type of things, we respect Hollywood, so you should also respect BOLLYWOOD, So go and watch, "POLITICS OF LOVE" and make your whole day happy. Thank you for reading

Bollywood and Hollywood don't mix

Author: axb from United States
13 October 2011

Of late Hollywood and Bollywood have been performing a strange dance. Big name Hollywood studios have signed contracts with Bollywood studios to produce films together and actors from both the industries are flying 10,000 miles to act in films produced by their opposites in the other continent. The difference is that while in most cases the exports from Hollywood have been grade B actors (Josh Hamilton in "Outsourced") and comedians past their prime (Chris Kattan in "Bollywood Hero"), the movement in the other direction is of supposedly grade A actors (Aishwarya Rai in "The Mistress of Spices"). Regardless, they have one thing in common- they manage to find mediocre projects and cannot rise above the material. Take for example of Mallika Sherawat, a "hot" actress from Hindi films, in this film. The film is based on a lame and worn idea of how opposites attract, made into an unfunny comedy. Ms. Sherawat is as bad as the material. She cannot even jog convincingly, let alone show any conflict about falling in love with a man who is politically against what she stands for. The simple irony of a black man trying to defeat the first black man running for President on a major party ticket, doesn't seem to occur to anyone in the film! The only good thing about Ms. Sherawat's performance is that it is no worse than that of her fellow actors in the film. All appear to be amateurs. It goes to show that the equation- Speaking English plus acting in Bollywood films equals being a Hollywood actress- does not compute. Whose hare-brained idea was this? How many such lousy half-Indian complete duds are going to be made?
