Review Film Tanu Weds Manu (2011)
I don’t think there would be a single girl in the world who would say no to a guy who is decent, has a great job and is settled, likes her and wants to marry her despite knowing all her flaws. However, in Tanu Weds Manu, we meet one such girl, Tanu. Written by Himanshu Sharma, the plot of Tanu Weds Manu is about an implausible wedding in the land of Uttar Pradesh. Manu (Madhavan) is a typical NRI who belongs to Delhi but has been living in London and returns home to his parents to find a bride for himself. Through a purely arranged meeting, he comes across Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) and falls in love with her instantly (for no rhyme or reason, I guess they were right when they said love is blind). He tells his parents he is ready to marry her but the plans are foiled when Tanu reveals she’s the rebellious kind who would only wed her boyfriend and Manu goes away like a decent typical Bollywood hero.

The story moves on when Tanu and Manu meet again. Sparks fly, the boyfriend appears and things between the unlikely couple make the story move forward. We already know that Manu weds Tanu (or the other way around) but the essence of the story is how exactly it happens.

Indeed, there’s nothing new in the film. It has been done over and over again and is probably the most clichéd topic a Bollywood producer could pick. Not only is the plot trite but extremely predictable too. Five minutes into the movie and you see an NRI boy, who is an ideal bachelor, returning home to find a bride for him. He goes to see a girl with his parents and likes the first one he sees and that’s when you know he’s going to end up marrying her! Moreover, it all sounds a bit impossible to be true considering he’s been living abroad since ages.

The first few parts of the film make you laugh (only once in a long while) and smile occasionally but soon the comedy part disappears and it makes you wonder if it’s a romantic comedy at all because there’s no romance in it. And since Bollywood films are pointless without romance, you can easily call this one extremely pointless.

Tanu Weds Manu has some serious technical flaws as well. To begin with, the script is extremely punctured and as if that wasn’t enough, there is no chemistry at all between Kangana and Madhavan. A strong chemistry is very essential if the movie is supposed to be even slightly romantic but the whole element of romance and chemistry is missing. The narrative doesn’t flow at the right pace either which makes the entire story drag. Had the narrative been more effective, the movie could have been executed in a better way on the screen.

This is a wedding based film and music plays a phenomenal role in such movies yet the music of Tanu Weds Manu is not up to the mark. There’s not even a single track that would make you want to get up and dance away. One or two fast paced tracks could have made the movie a little more interesting.

As far as the performances are concerned, Madhavan does a great job as the perfect bachelor and innocent NRI. The only reason anyone would want to waste their time on this movie is because of Madhavan. Even though his character is boring he makes it convincing. He actually looks the kind who would come back from London after years without even dating a girl or having a fling with one for that matter. Sadly, poor Madhavan couldn’t save this wreck by himself.

Kangana is not even half as strong as her co-actor in the film. She lacks the spark that was needed to perform the role of the free bird that Tanu is. Her dialogue delivery isn’t effective either. Someone like Kareena could have played the free bird role to perfection like she did in Jab We Met and a few other films. The supporting cast is good but it’s too bad they are just in the background and can’t help much to make the movie better!

In some parts, Tanu Weds Manu seems like a copy of Jab We Met, and a very failed attempt to remake at that. The name suggests that it will be a grand Indian wedding, but the film is nothing more than a great Indian wedding gone wrong. Avoid at all costs and if you have nothing better to do go take a two hour long power nap – Hafsah Sarfraz

Watch Tanu Weds Manu Returns if you love Bollywood. And if you look down upon Bollywood, watch the Kangana Ranaut-starrer to see how entertaining the industry can be. For people outside north India, the film is an authentic portrayal of middle-class small town India. And it is funny as hell! We’d say this is a must watch.

Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Deepak Dobriyal, Madhavan, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Jimmy Sheirgill, Swara Bhaskar and Eijaz Khan

Rating: 4/5

Tanuja Trivedi and Manu Sharma are back with Tanu Weds Manu Returns. And so are Pappi, Payal, Jassi and Raja Awasthi. Director Anand L Rai's sequel to his 2011 hit film Tanu Weds Manu, hits theatres on Friday, four years after the first film won hearts and box offices.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns traces the problems of a love marriage: You fall in love with someone, but with time personalities change; while some of us learn to grow up or grow old with the one we loved, most of us feel disappointed and irritated. Also Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) and Manu (R Madhavan) were the best example for ‘opposites attract each other’; but can opposites also live and grow old with each other? That's the tricky question Anand explores in the sequel. The mismatch of a couple looks like romantic attraction in the beginning but turns out to be one of the main struggles of a marriage.

Kangana surprises with her portrayal of Datto.

First things first. Kangana Ranaut has done a fabulous job with her characters Tanu and Datto. Tanu hasn't lost her weird, irresponsible and audacious ways, Datto is a sincere, young girl, a fiercely independent one, who takes up responsibilities. From the body languages of the two women to their accents, Kangana aces it to the T. She proves yet again that she is one of the few heroines in Bollywood who is willing to experiment with different roles and still come out as the most convincing every time.

Watch: Tanu Weds Manu Returns has hilarious narrative, colourful frames and rustic dialogues​

This film is yet another reminder of the expertise with which Anand L Rai handles small town stories. Kanpur, Lucknow and Delhi were pivotal to the connect the first film had on north-Indian audience. Add to that Haryana’s Jhajjar and the sequel is more like a sumptuous Indian meal with an extra dollop of white butter: fresh, delicious, soft and rustic at the same time.

In the introductory sequence of the movie, that takes off at Kangana-Madhavan’s wedding (where the last one ended), we see kids grabbing scoops of ice-creams with their hands and women teasing the newly-wed couple. Anand has proved his connect with small towns in Tanu Weds Manu and in Sonam Kapoor-Dhanush-Abhay Deol-starrer Raanjhanaa. With Tanu Weds Manu Returns, he moves a step ahead, keeping the colourful frames intact and adding an extra dose of the rustic flavour of north Indian towns. The nuances of small-town families, the involvement of the entire ‘mohalla’ in someone’s private affairs and everything that defines the experience of living in the small cities and towns of north India will add to the connect that audience will definitely feel with the movie.

Another gem that Anand brings to us is Himanshu Sharma. Were it not for Sharma’s screenplay and dialogues, the desi flavour in Tanu Weds Manu Returns would have lost its appeal. Tanuja Trivedi (Kangana) is described as the "Batman" of her ‘mohalla’ and she flaunts "the legends of the Batman" – her crazy past lovers - as her trophies. A Bollywood entertainer in the true sense, Tanu Weds Manu harps on playing with words, in sync with the north Indian culture and mindsets. And a Payal (Swara) doesn’t want to tell her husband that their kid was born from artificial insemination because "Ye log mardangi bhi to sperm count se naapte hain, ego hurt ho jayega".

Raj Shekhar’s lyrics add to the desi connect in Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Every single song in the movie, from Banno to Mat Jaa Re to Ghani Bawri, all of them are an intrinsic part of the narrative.

Deepak Dobriyal is the show-stealer in the film.

Deepak Dobriyal, who is back as Pappi, Madhavan's friend, is the show stealer in most of the sequences. Anand has given Deepak the most hilarious dialogues and the actor rises beyond expectations to shine throughout the movie. Tanu Weds Manu showcased the combined skills of the supporting cast (Swara Bhaskar, Eijaz Khan, Jimmy Sheirgill and Deepak Dobriyal). The sequel does not offer much screen-space to Swara and Eijaz but Deepak clearly wins the show. His comic timing, the way he continues to be Manu's sidekick and his mannerisms will win you all over again. The theatre actor who has always done fabulous job with his characters surpasses himself and gives us one of the most hilarious onscreen characters of recent times.

Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in the film.

Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub plays Advocate Arun Kumar Singh aka Chintu, the latest addition to Tanu’s long list of lovers. I will let Chintu’s dialogue describe his own character: In his first meeting with Raja Awasthi (Jimmy), Chintu says, "Hum hain kandha. Jab ladki dukhi hoti hai to humare paas aati hai. Aapne jhatak tha to doctor aa gaya, abhi doctor ne jhatak diya hai to hum hain. Jab hum jhatakein to to tum wapas lapak lena." Zeeshan has a small role in the film but his acting prowess ensures you end up loving him as much as all other characters in the movie.

R Madhavan excels in the underrated character that he has at hand. Not all actors can play the second fiddle to strong women characters around and yet hold their fort. Swara and Eijaz are as lovable as they were in the first movie. And so are all other characters; be it Manu’s parents, Tanu’s dad and mom, Datto’s family or the random shopkeepers, everyone’s authentic portrayal of their parts makes you split in laughter riots. Jimmy, is clearly one of the most underrated actors Bollywood has. He brings his own charm to Raja Awasthi’s character.

Raja Awasthi (Jimmy Sheirgill) is back in Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

If you want to go nitpicking and zoom in on the faults, the film is not flawless. The opening sequence shows Kangana and Madhavan seeking marriage counseling, in a mental asylum! Also, at one point, Tanu breaks into a total Haryanavi song, with the accent et all: When did this Kanpur girl learn Haryanavi? Also, the ending seemed more in confirmation with the cultural mind sets of the target audience than what should have been the natural course of events for the characters as they unfold through the movie. Another sequence is where Zeeshan, a law graduate, threatens Jimmy. Instead of giving it back to the young kid, Jimmy simply backs off. A person who doesn’t think twice before firing gun shots at his own wedding, deserves a better faceoff. Also, there are a little too many ‘filmy coincidences’ and similarities between Datto and Tanu that make you cringe.

The best part about Tanu Weds Manu Returns, however, is that none of these flaws actually hamper the hilarious and rooted narrative. The brilliant performances of ALL the actors, main and supporting, alongwith the colourful frames and the funny and rustic dialogues of Himanshu Sharma ensure a laugh riot. The film is a treat for everyone, those who watched and loved the first part and the ones who have not.

Watch Tanu Weds Manu Returns if you love Bollywood. watch it if you follow Bollywood. and if you look down upon Bollywood, watch the movie to see how entertaining the industry can be. For people outside north India, the film is an authentic portrayal of middle-class small town India. And it is funny as hell! We’d say this is a must watch.
