What Women Want
Film by Nancy Meyers
Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt
The movie was a nice watch. It was somehow very predictable; either I have read about the story somewhere or seen some Bollywood movie in the same lines or I might have seen this very same movie long before and completely forgot about it, as is characteristic with me (and the reason behind this blog).
The story revolves around a man in a man’s world without a clue about what women really wish for or want. Portrayed as the typical womanizer, chauvinist worker, failure as a husband & a Dad, the protagonist has a good career. However he misses a growth opportunity to a woman who takes over as the Creative Director, then the subsequent ego clash and hostility. An accident takes place which leaves him with the ability to listen to the thoughts of all women .It leads him to discoveries, opportunities and lot more. Listening to what a woman is thinking transforms him into a considerate, caring and loving person and a wonderful Dad!
There are parts in the movie that made me sigh, smile, chuckle, disagree, enjoy and thoughtful. It’s a light hearted watch, but not something I can watch a second time without getting bored.
