Eat Pray Love - A Review

Based on the novel of the same name, Eat Pray Love was said to be a typical Hallmark movie with gut- warming messages and food for thoughts after the movie.

Indeed, this movie is very meaningful.


I have not read the original novel. So I am not going to comment on the plot or the storyline, though I personally feels that nothing happens with such coincidence.

This movie is one hell of a tourism advertising film that lasted more than 2 hours!


Cinematography, full marks!!

And Julia Roberts is such a joy to watch! Her smile, though not stranger to anyone, brings the sunshine out of anyone!


So, Eat Pray Love focuses in three very important phase of our lives, and three must- visit sites on Earth!

Eat all you can in Italy. And I really love the concept of "Joy of Doing Nothing"



Pray in India. Not finding God, but more like finding yourself, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness.



Love in Bali. Yes, everyone needs a love affair in Bali! To love is to lose control. Blah blah blah. You get the drift...


I feel that the movie delivers the message with such beauty and irony. Don't know if the book is better, but the movie is strong. Slow pace at times. But if you open up your mind and try to understand what is really going on, I think this is one enjoyable movie!


So see you later, alligator =)
Ratings : 7.5/10
