THE ONE I LOVE (2014): So Here’s Something Different

It is well documented that repetition inevitably gets dull and people end up switching off. This is the case with many romantic comedies and generally any genre that repeats the same themes and plot lines continuously and with minimal difference.

The One I Love (2014) can be accused of no such thing. Yes. the narrative contains a classic stage in the long term relationship lifecycle. But the execution is a very refreshing and unexpected difference.

The story is about a married couple trying to find their way back to that great past period in their relationship where happiness was the default setting, and as they begin their journey, rather peculiar things start happening.

I find The One I Love to be more of a drama than a romantic comedy, but it has been labeled as all three (comedy, romance and drama) simultaneously.

Watch it because of the two impressive lead actors. Watch it for the different kind of execution. Watch it because you’re somewhat bored of the formulaic nature of romantic comedies and need something else. And watch because you want to be pleasantly surprised.

Here’s the trailer.

Happy The One I Love 🙂
