Inevitably, there's a twinge in watching a movie centered on an election that inspired such high hopes from today's troubled perspective, but on its own terms, "Politics of Love" emerges as an amusing entertainment.

Audience Reviews for Politics Of Love


Witty and silly -- a political and romantic comedy. Some good slapstick characters and cultural commentary in there too. For what it is, I like a lot.

While, I admit, it felt like a made-for-tv movie, it was really cute. It felt like a grownup version of a Disney movie...lots of diversity. The weakest character was Mallika Sherawat, and I blame her accent. She doesn't seem "American" enough, despite looking stunning in EVERY scene. Her delivery of American humor with her accent made it painful, for me. But non-verbal acting-wise, she outshown the entire cast. Considering her Bollywood career, no surprise there - melodrama and facial expressions are a must. Brian White was smoking hot and also did a great job.

Predictable story line. Horrible acting. Sooo boring. Don't waste your time on this movie. I tried to stick it out, but bailed on it after the first 40 minutes. It was on cable, so at least I wasn't out the price of a ticket. Is there any way I can get that 40 minutes of my life back?
