It’s been four years since both Tanu and Manu settled down, however, this duration has brought forth the seven year itch. The two settled down in London seems to experience their chilling winter relationship unlike witnessed in this place. We already knew how the two were poles apart in nature and lifestyle in the prequel, hence the difference is pretty inevitable in this film as well.

Soon Manu is seen coming out with regrets in his marriage, while his old friend Pappi seems very much excited about his wedding, which is expected soon in his life.

Tanu and Manu plans to give their marriage a last chance by visiting India for Pappi‘s wedding. On reaching Kanpur, Tanu‘s transition seems quick unlike the previous one. Soon, she with her neighbour friend Chintu is seen visiting her old boyfriends making it her daily affair. Tanu‘s lifestyle simply makes Kanpur with a taste of America. Things become bad to worse when Manu, back in Delhi, is seen following an athelte from Delhi University student called Datto who very well resembles to Tanu. Soon, things turn bad to worse at both the ends and you find Raja Awasthi entering into the life of Tanu‘s ex-fiancee (Tanu). So, what happens next is worth exploring, which is filled with all drama and roller coaster ride in their marital life.

Star Performances

Talking about the star performances, Kangana seems scoring the point high. In fact, with films like Queen, she has already carved her niche the best in the industry, which was applauded by the most prestigious awards in India – National Award for the Best Actor (Female) Category from Government of India. That speaks volumes about the talented actress who leaves no stone unturned to understand the character to be played in any movie stepping her feet the best in its shoes and Tanu Weds Manu Returns is no exception. In her characters of Tanu and Datto, she will make you laugh and cry. Don’t forget to catch her Haryanvi accent, which she keeps on saying whenever encountered with Manu. Next comes the man R Madhavan in the role of Manu, he is simple, straight and composed unlike seen in the first episode. His performance seems too sweet, which completes with Kangana Ranaut to some extent. The next man who steals the show is Deepak Dobriyal in his friend’s character called Pappi. He makes you laugh like hell and impresses with his most authentic performance. The others in different roles too were par, but have lesser screen spaces, which eventually make the trio overshadow them all.

Technical Analysis

The director, Anand L Rai is simply superb in his filmmaking skills and unlike previous part, he was successful enough to make the flow of the film straight and gripping. In the sequel, he has gone one step ahead by adding a few cross connections in the form of Datto and the re-entry of Raja in the lives of both Manu and Tanu and above all the kind of comedy is interwoven in the film is simply fabulous. The flow of the script is natural and simple, which makes the audience stay gripped for long without taking any loo break except during the intermission. The other aspects like music, location, screenplay, dialogues filled with all sort of emotions, editing, etc remained par with quality, which further adds value making it very much worthy to catch in theatres.

Tanu Weds Manu: Returns – Last Word

Tanu Weds Manu: Returns is rich film in terms of good content, power packed performances especially from Kangana Ranaut. The best part of the film comes in the form of a great balance, wherein you can find good content, you have a dexterous direction backed by good performances and other elements. The fact is the sequel is very much better than the prequel. Kangana had enough of screen space in her twin characters wherein she has given her best performance. The other elements simply added fuel to make the film from better to best, giving a complete entertainment package. With so many positive elements present in the sequel, the film deserves a better rating.
