AI Love You: Win Her Heart Right!
The world of cinema has evolved over the years with the inclusion of the Artificial Intelligence aka AI plotline. From Her to Blade Runner 2049, all these films have shown a romantic turn of events when it comes to a relationship between an AI and a human. However, more than the romance, the tragedy of the situations and instances are what is focused on more in these films. But, Netflix’s AI Love You takes a different turn to actually depict the romance between the two.
The film stars with Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul’s Lana trying to bag herself a big deal. With the help of the AI system named Dob, she is able to successfully make the required presentation for the client with Dob’s help. During this instance, we see Dob and Lana get closer and, the AI accidentally says, ‘I Love You’. Irrespective of Lana feeling the same way and, even though her life is filled with misogynistic dates that are never successful, she denies her feelings and rejects the proposal.
While this tragic love story continues, we see the entry of Bob, who is visiting Lana to have a look at the AI due to its malfunctioning when he discovers the AI is filled with videos of Lana and, that it has developed feelings for her. But, when Bob threatens to delete all the files, the AI downloads itself to Bob’s body and, embarks on a journey to win Lana’s heart. What stands at the end of the story is for the viewers to find out by streaming the film on Netflix.
The premise of the film is pretty predictable and generic. However, it is the chemistry between Mario Maurer and Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul that keeps us glued to our screens. The actors are absolutely adorable and, almost make the viewers nostalgic about them pairing up after almost a decade.
