Iโ€™m so excited guys! I may have seen a ton of movies, but swear to God, Iโ€™ve never seen a love triangle like that. It is beautiful. Iโ€™m pettying Bollywood now for their rotten love triangle concept. Hoh God!

Iโ€™m still under the influence of this beauty. Iโ€™m giving it 8.5/10.

Plot Summary

Elle is a high school student who writes homework to earn extra cash. One day a dude comes to her and asks if she can write a love letter for his crush. She agrees to it. But she didnโ€™t expect to become friends with him…and to fall in love with his crush, Aster.

She helps him to get a date with Aster, only to have a chance to get to know Aster better. The dude finds out and is now in deep turmoil. Find out how the story goes.

What’s to Like/DisLike?

Plot Depth ๐Ÿ‘

Okay, so where do I start. Letโ€™s start with the plot depth and flow. The story goes like a slippery slide with butter on it. Youโ€™ll start the movie, you follow along and the next thing you know is that is over. Not is a bad sense. That tells you how gripping the story is and how youโ€™re gonna go deep in it.

Characters ๐Ÿ‘Ž

The acting, the execution, the characters, all were good except for the fact that Aster has very less role given to her. Thereโ€™s very little youโ€™ll hear from her. I mean she is also the main character according to the plot but she doesnโ€™t seem so in the actual movie.

Everything Else ๐Ÿ‘

Apart from that, thereโ€™s nothing which couldโ€™ve been better. It was such a good experience.

Farewell Words

It may sound sexist, but according to me, girls will feel this movie more than boys. Love triangle movies are always interesting to watch, we all want to know how things will end.

Youโ€™ll feel the pain, the tears, the awww moments, just like I felt it. So bring your bae over, turn off the lights, and play this movie. Shout out to Netflix for this.
