Jehanzeb Jehangiri’s review:
Performances of the three main characters and the Yemeni Shiekh are nice. Ewen Mcgregor steals the show with his accent and a sound performance, and also happens to be a sole show stealer. Emily Blunt is lovable and makes you fall in love with her in her every role. As Miss Talbot she is in a funny and a touching role.
There are some plot holes in the film, but the performances and specially the wicked humour brought in by Kristen Scott Thomas is both beautiful and laugh out loud funny.
The movie sails smoothly until the end which is a bit far fetched and makes you unsettled. Overall this is a nice effort, could have been better if the screenplay was written with more heart.
For all the rom-com lovers, watch it out.
