Wrapped In Magic part 1 and part 2

Rita Dominic's acting
Overly dragged, nearly boring
-Story: [2 out of 5]
It’s a good story if they’d started and ended it without any unnecessary scenes. I get that it’s only two parts but the movie really needn’t have been that long at all. Many scenes were overly prolonged and unnecessary fluff was added in order for the movie to get to two parts
-Originality: [1 out of 5]
The only original concept in the movie is the undercover-husband dating his own wife online. Asides from that, it’s an overexplored concept
-Predictability: [0 out of 5]
It also ends exactly as one would think, nothing new.
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5]

Rita Dominic was the glue that held this movie together. Honestly speaking, she was the only one really exerting any effort. I have a natural inclination to Nuella movies because they are almost always easy to watch. Nuella can carry a movie well enough. Her acting, though not as strong as Rita, is easy to like.
In as much as I like Senanu, I think he was unable to express the emotions required in some scenes especially towards the end of the movie.
-Setting: [2 out of 5]
I absolutely hated the hospital set. It was very cheap looking but the reality of things is that that’s how most of our hospitals look.
-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5]
-Props and Graphics: [2 out of 5]
The accident scene wasn’t done well
-Video Quality: [1 out of 5]
If I was to look at the video quality alone, I’d assume that the movie was done in 2006
-Audio Quality [2 out of 5]
-Soundtrack: [3 out of 5]
-Musical Score: [3 out of 5]
