Never have had enough of it
15 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie leaves you short of the feeling of fulfillment. You never want it to end where it ends. But that's the beauty of it. It has a calming pace which lets you get the best out of the movie. It is not for lovers of quick and flamboyant entertainment. It is not erotic in an erotic way. It is much more real and believable. It is much like life itself. The actors have done a fairly good job. The boy-hero is almost lovable. The sentimental and sex-ridden heroine is quite sexy. The other females are what you see. Suddenly, it is one of my current favorites. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. It is lazily romantic, aptly seductive and calmly erotic. You will watch it and ask for more...that's how I see it. Good watch for a rainy afternoon!
