I usually like movies that have unusual plot and unpredictable ending. No Other Woman was nothing like that. The trailer gave away most of the story, even the fact that most of the dialog were fun and quirky. However, to truly appreciate the effort that the film makers have put into the movie, one must watch it.
The story was not that grand. This is not the first time an "adultery- themed" movie has been a hit in the Philippines. There were many unresolved issues in the movie, Ram's issue with his dad, Ram's issue with Cha's dad, Kara's issue with her dad, etc. However, the main point of the story was addressed, and I think that was what's important. The writers probably deliberately left off the minor issues for the people to conclude.
The cinematography was very satisfactory. The skies were red during Kara and Ram's scenes together, depicting a fiery, passionate, illicit love affair. On the other hand, the skies were bleak and gray during Kara's heartbreak moments. It is commendable that they have put enough effort in the movie to play around with other elements aside from the physical appearance and acting of the actors.
The actors did not perform the absolute best by far, but their acting was solid and believable. The movie may not be awards-worthy, but it is worth every penny you will pay for.
