Though almost two years late, I managed to watch A Little Thing Called Love [original air date: 12 August 2010] with my friends last Saturday. It was a great fun-filled night!
A Little Thing Called Love a.k.a. A Crazy Little Thing Called Love a.k.a First Love [original title: Sing lek lek tee reak wa rak] is a Thai romantic comedy film that does not fail to make everyone smile and giggle inside. The plot is not complicated with storylines and events that I am sure all of us can relate to. This movie lacks huge surprises and twists which, ironic as it may be, is the film’s excellent strength. A Little Thing Called Love is brilliant and cute no matter how simple the plot is.
A Little Thing Called Love’s plot revolves around the little world of teenagers Nam [Pimchanok Leuwisetpaiboon] and Shone [Mario Maurer]. Nam is an ordinary girl with unappealing looks who has been secretly in love with her popular schoolmate, Shone. Due to a number of school events [receives the Snow White role in a school play and a drum leader of the school’s marching band] the ugly duckling slowly turns into a fine princess. Shone’s best friend, Top [Acharanat Ariyaritwikol] falls in love with Nam and makes Shone promise to never compete against him for Nam’s love. Loyal to his friend, Shone keeps his word. Years pass by, Nam becomes a huge fashion designer in New York while Shone remains in Thailand and is into arts and photography. The two meet again in a tv talkshow. They reunite and well… they live happily ever after.
