Love Battle 2019: A Comedy about the Love Betting Game

Thai cinema is famous for its funny movies. Love Battle is also one of them. In this movie, the guy who always believes that love can be calculated by the data gradually falls in love with the girl who wants to prove him wrong.

Tan (Prama Imanothai) is a statistician who calculates and concludes 80% of couples break up after two years. Based on that, he created a business model of love insurance that stirred up public opinion. Although it is called insurance, this contract is more like a betting game when the company commits to refunding money with interest to those who maintain their affection for more than two years.

The situation changes when Jeed (Esther Supreeleela) moves into Tan’s department. Believing in true love, she wanted to prove his calculation was wrong. They started a fight to defend their views and bet on the love story of insurance buyers.

Thai work follows the familiar motif of a romance film: the two protagonists initially hate each other but are gradually attracted to each other. Even so, the idea of a love contract creates many unique situations. When researching insurance buyers, they discover many secrets and feelings of couples then they change their minds. Many situations are set up like the relationship between a well-educated young man – a beauty girl who makes a living, a famous male rapper – a hard-working girlfriend, a rich woman – a young man who loves money.

Humor is the highlight in many situations. The charming cast makes most sub-couples have points. In some sections, their body movements and facial expressions turned out to be witty even though the content was not too special.

The two main actors have good looks. Prama Imanotai wears a costume suitable for the image of a boy who loves mathematics, arrogant and obnoxious at the beginning of the film. In the inner scenes, he transformed his acting well to show the sympathetic side of the character. And Esther looks cute. Her character believes in love but is not built too softly but is still a modern woman.
