Okay guys, I've just been to see 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' and it was amazing! The basic plot involved a group of pensioners (for various reasons of their own) travelling to India to stay at what is described to be a dream Hotel in the heart of India, only to find it is falling apart and owned by an eccentric manager (Dev Patel) whose passion for the business makes him blind to the situation around him. First of all, it, in my opinions, has a cast to die for! For those who don't know, these include Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie and many more! The entire cast were fantastic, and even Karen from 'Outnumbered' made a minor appearance, which was a nice surprise. The film was full of humour, poking fun at a number of topics which had the entire Cinema laughing their heads off. The storyline was, in some ways, predictable but there were a couple of surprises and I for one like a certain amount of predictability so that the plot does not become confusing. The characters were developed nicely and the shots of India and soundtrack were a beautiful glimpse into a very different culture. Overall, I don't just recommend this, I am saying to you all it is a necessity that you go and see it!
In other news, I'm thinking of setting up a Make-Up blog because I'm really getting into it! Ordered a few eyeshadows from Shiro Cosmetics (a fabulous indie brand that I am eager to try) and some Pixie Epoxy from Fyrinnae (yet another greatly reviewed indie brand, their eyeshadows look beautiful).
Anyway, looking forward to a nice day off tomorrow!
