Movie propaganda

THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL tells the story of a group of misfit British pensioners who are enticed to retire to a fabulous hotel in Jaipur, India, where they are promised to live a life of luxury for a bargain price. Upon their arrival, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once elegant Marigold Hotel has stalled. There is water…sometimes. And electricity…sometimes. The hotel’s eager manager, a young Indian entrepreneur, is quick to tell them that his ambitious renovation is going to turn the place around. Surprisingly, the retirees find themselves settling into this strange new world and creating bonds with each other. What their new life lacks in luxury they come to find is plentiful in adventure, stunning beauty, peace and love.

    Movie Review

    The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel became home to seven elderly British people in search of somewhere to spend their retirement. The guests were somewhat surprised when they arrived and realised that the advertised lifestyle at the hotel was somewhat different to what it was in reality. The guests were shown images of a beautiful picture perfect hotel but in reality the hotel run down and lacking some bedroom doors and working telephones to which the manager Sonny (Dev Patel) simply said "Everything will be alright in the end, so if it's not alright, it's not yet the end", his optimistic attitude was all that was keeping the failing hotel from crumbling to the ground. Each guest had their own story and their own motives for spending their retirement in India at the hotel and the way that the guests influence each others lives to change their perceptions and realisations makes for a nice story which is a pleasure to watch as it's well acted. This movie has plenty of funny parts in it which is its main selling point however it does tend to drag on a little in parts.
