Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie review

Namaste! That's a standard Indian greeting. Here are the reasons why should you see Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel? I consider this the best movie I've seen for the year 2015.

*It's a fun movie to watch. The humor is smart. The British has a different sense of humor.

*You can still see these seasoned British actors appealing in this movie.

*It's a cross-cultural movie. It made me want to go to India.

*It's not a Bollywood movie but it has a Bollywood feel with collaborative effort between Indian and British actors.

*Dev Patel(The Last Airbender), Maggie Smith( Harry Potter movies, the original Clash Of Titans), Bill Nighy(Jack The Giant Slayer, Underworld) and Judi Dench(James Bond movies) has pop culture representations.

*Unlike Hotel California(reference to the Eagles song), the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the hotel you can check in anytime and you may not want to leave.

*There is no main character. Each character has their own story.

I just found out that it is a sleeper hit sequel. It makes me want to see the first one. Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is exclusive to Ayala Cinemas. For more movie reviews, follow this blog or like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
