Law of Attraction applied ??
2 August 2020 | by paulsamuel-48177See all my reviews

Was waiting for this movie ever since I heard about it. Got to see on the same day it got released. Being an ardent Secret follower and fan, the law of attraction and the major Secret nuances were very mildly sprinkled or applied overall. I would say that, this movie was a decent love story with fantastic cinematography, good performance by the all the major actors. The major cons of this movie is the casting which made a great impact. Starting from Katie Holmes, josh and the kids, everyone played their part very well and we could just move into their story. The background score also needs to be mentioned and went well with the movie. Though the story was straight forward with a predictable climax, never felt bored. Felt that the law of attraction could be more applied or showcased and depicted in the movie. The impact was very meagre in this and couldn't satiate Secret fans. But it's a complete family entertainer and could feel the positivity when the movie ends. It was so light and cheerful!!
