It's a story of Boy Meets girl and the boy falls in love but the girl does not or Does she? A perfect formula for a dated romantic comedy but hey wait a minute because "This is not a love story, This is a story of Love".
(500) Days of Summer marks the debut of the incredibly talented Mark Webb and he just delivers one of the best tale of Romance on Screen. Also it showcases the acting prowess of the ever impressive Joseph Gordon-Levitt who ever since has become the Golden boy in Hollywood.
(500) days of Summer lingers on a very Simple story idea of a Boy meets girl but achieves greater height through the imaginative execution. It's a story of Tom & Summer. Tom is an architect who works as a greeting card copywriter falls for the new office girl Summer who is good at everything but hates commitment. Then love follows and so follows the inevitable heartbreak and finally the redemption. A pretty predictable story but what sets it apart from the millions of other Rom-Coms, is the brilliant Script and the narration. The Story moves back & forth breaking the chronological order and looks at the 500 days of Tom's life when summer touched it.
I just loved the way the story is told & the characters complemented the narration brilliantly. Levitt is exceptional as Tom. He plays the role of a hopeless lover with élan. Zooey Deschanel looked so pretty and she also did pretty well as Summer. Rest of the cast fits in quite well.
In a nutshell (500) Days of Summer is an incredibly beautiful story of love. I am Going with 8 out of 10 for this intelligent Romantic Comedy, don't miss it.
