The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel — See something different, exotic, and charming — 9*/10

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a charming and lovely movie about retired people choosing India as their country of choice. A bit of romance, a lot of adventure.

The setting is beautiful, enticing, and exotic. The characters are diverse, without being eclectic, and very interesting. The story is captivating, filled with nice details and relatively quick paced but with enough meat and sufficient time to digest.

Dev Patel dances a fine line as the owner-manager of the hotel. At first, he's kind of annoying, bumbling mistakes and inefficiency, but he quickly becomes charmingly adorable. Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, and Tom Wilkinson are assuredly the star performers, however, it would be unfair not to mention that the rest of cast also delivered great performances.

Unless you find the subject boring, I highly recommend it.
