A Gimmicky Premise, Executed with Charm

Doing romance entirely through texts is certainly an idea that has never been seen before.

The Leading Duo: Hit and Miss

Mira, played by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, was excellent. She delivered convincingly on the character’s mourning journey. It felt like she really did heal after everything she had been through and it moved me. On the other hand, there seems to be no real chemistry between him Nick played by Sam Heughan as was expected from them both. Although Heughan did well as a stoic journalist, he lacked chemistry with Chopra Jonas.Critics have even likened their dynamic to two slices of white bread.

Celine Dion: A Surprise Scene-Stealer

Despite coming across as gimmicky to some people, one of the high points of this movie has got to be Celine Dion being part of it herself.
