Isn’t It Romantic reviews: Priyanka Chopra fails to receive a mention
Priyanka Chopra made her Hollywood debut in 2017 with the film Baywatch. She was the antagonist in the movie but didn’t have a meaty role to play. Now her second Hollywood outing Isn’t It Romantic is all set to hit the screens in the US and Canada on February 14, 2019. The critics overseas have seen the film and reviews of the movie are out. The movie has received mixed reviews and we were super excited to know what the critics have to say about our desi girl, but we are left disappointed.
No, we aren’t saying that the critics have bashed PeeCee, but many have missed on writing anything about her except a brief on her character in the synopsis section. The movie is led by Rebel Wilson and talking about other characters, The Hollywood Reporter wrote, “With a setup that cries out for a delirious screwball labyrinth, the movie instead carts out a set of caricatures that, however well played, too often stall the story rather than propelling it. Priyanka Chopra shows up as a self-important swimsuit model.” The Guardian is not impressed with PeeCee’s performance as their review read, “Priyanka Chopra not quite interesting enough as the spiky love rival.”
However, Entertainment Weekly is all praise for the actress, “Also perfectly cast: Priyanka Chopra as the gorgeous yoga ambassador who oscillates between benign love interest and classic mean girl.”
Priyanka had earlier tweeted that she doesn’t have a big role in Isn’t It Romantic, but the way she has been promoting the film, looked like she was the second lead. However, going by the reviews, one can easily derive that PeeCee does not have much to do in the film. Looks like after Baywatch, PeeCee fans will be disappointed with Isn’t It Romantic too. The movie will be released on Netflix in India on February 28, 2019.
