Finally, the last part of the Through My Window trilogy is out and to sum up in one word is to call it weak. You can only wish for it to be good but alas, that’s not what is delivered to you. So here is what happens: the story picks up from where it left off. Raquel and Ares have broken up over the summer and are now on their separate ways. Raquel is still navigating her life post Yoshi’s death and her failed relationship. She has finished writing her book and it is all set for launch.

Her attachment to the book is of a different type because it’s a book based on her personal life- a reflection of her love with Ares. She found her solace in her book. The critiques gave her a green signal for her book. She is now encouraged by the editors to work on a sequel. But that’s where Raquel finds herself stuck. Her muse behind the book was Ares and their love. With that gone now, she is struggling to write a sequel. Both Ares and Raquel have seemingly moved on with their lives. Raquel is now with Gregory while Ares is with Vera. On the outside, they seem happy. Both couples share passionate intimate moments too. However, it is on the inside that we see both Raquel and Ares are still fighting their feelings for each other.

Beneath the surface, unresolved emotions linger. It's not easy for either of them to see each other with other people. Will Ares and Raquel get back together? Will they forget the past and forgive each other? Or will have they moved on for good? Raquel’s mother has found a new romance and is involved with him too much which leaves Raquel feeling left out. This too adds up to her emotional turmoil.

The final installment of this trilogy shifts its focus to Raquel's experiences, unlike the first one which dealt more with Ares and his life. "Through My Window: Looking At You" fails to deliver innovation, presenting a familiar narrative of a tumultuous, steamy romance. Its plot echoes similarities seen in movies like the "After" film series and the "50 Shades" trilogy, offering little in terms of novelty.

In its essence, it's an old wine in a new bottle. While the actors perform adequately, they are hindered by the lackluster storyline. Ultimately, the film struggles to captivate audiences due to its failure to introduce anything substantive or original. You may find yourself even questioning as to why you decided to watch this movie. The film trilogy delves into themes of love, loss, and forgiveness, but ultimately fails to deliver a satisfying conclusion, leaving audiences yearning for more depth and resolution.

Final Score- [3/10]
