This friday released Tanu Weds Manu Returns is a sequel to the director’s 2011 hit film “Tanu Weds Manu” with the same star cast.
Story: Tanu Weds Manu Returns starts where Tanu Weds Manu ended, four years into their marriage, Tanu played by Kangana refuses to grow up while Manu played by Madhavan has grown up and grown wider too. Their marriage is crumbling as Tanu now finds Manu too boring and he thinks she is too demanding.
Tanu moves back to Kanpur and tries living her old life with gay abandon with admirers teeming around her, and in the meanwhile, Manu falls in love with her lookalike, Kusum. The second half dragged a bit leading to a rather predictable climax and a tad underwhelming experience.
The best thing about this film is the dialogues. Aanand L. Rai merits applause for his masterful direction of Himanshu Sharma’s rich, riotous story. It is a very good movie which should be watch definately.
Performances: Kangna delivers a superb performance yet again, The actress fleshes out this pair of distinct individuals with such energy and finesse that it becomes difficult at times to tell that it is the same actress playing the two roles.
Madhavan deserves a special mention as it takes a decent actor like him to know when to underplay to accommodate the two strong women characters he’s dealing with. Swara Bhaskar and others lend good support.
Music: The film’s music has been composed by mixed artists which includes Tanishk & Vayu, Krsna Solo. There is always that one song in the soundtrack of a film which becomes an instant hit Banno is that number for Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Ankit Tiwari has become the voice of sad songs. His new song Mat Ja Re is quite a typical song. Overall music is good and matches with the story.
