Bangkok Traffic Love Story


This review is  biased. Because I have a crush with the male lead whose screen name is hard to pronounce. Hahaha!


I watched this movie out of curiosity. Because the recently released Seven Something movie has same producers with BTLS. "It must be something?!" I told myself when I saw the Seven Something poster in the cinemas.

Story-wise it's a typical boy-meets-girl love story that was set in Bangkok's busy BTS trains. The story caters to urban ladies with age brackets of late 20's to early 30's especially to those who had NO Boyfriend Since Birth. There was some moments in the film that are not quite coherent in some parts. It's forgivable though. I think the exaggerations and kaartehan of the female lead has helped to give humor. As for the male lead just look at his face and you're on for a box office hit.

I like it because the story is funny, bitter-sweet separation, sad realizations and homecoming. The story was unpredictable if I compare it to the typical mainstream Pinoy movie. Surprisingly, no kissing scene.

  1. It's all about KEN (the male lead's English name). He's so gwapo!!!
  2. Mario Maurer's brother Marco is one of P'lern's boyfriend.
  3. It's a chick flick rom-com, watch it with your girlfriends.
  4. I could relate to the train locations. Hubby and I spent our honeymoon there. 
  5. I wish our LRT/MRT back home is as efficient as the BTS.
Rating: 3.5/5

XOXO
