Tanu Weds Manu Returns Review – Story/Plot

Tanu Weds Manu was an endearing love story with some of the most well sketched characters on screen. The same characters return and it’s good to see them once more.

It’s been four years since Tanu and Manu’s eventful wedding and they’re already feeling the seven year itch. Settled in London, their relationship is now as cold as the London winter.

After a serious clash that lands Manu in a mental asylum, Tanu finds herself back in India with her family. Manu follows soon after his friend Pappi (Deepak Dobriyal) rescues him. Both are in their respective hometowns and things just get worse when Manu decides to send his wife a legal notice. It pushes Tanu to become the same old fiery and brash woman she used to be and this time, she goes out seeking the attention of Raja Awasthi (Jimmy Shergill).

Meanwhile Manu mopes in Delhi until he meets and falls in love Haryanvi athlete Kusum (Kangana) – who resembles the woman he once loved.  Matters get complicated once it is learnt that Kusum is supposed to get married to Raja. And more confusion follows when Kusum also falls for Manu and accepts his marriage proposal instead. However, Manu cannot maary Kusum until he is divorced to Kusum. Will Manu and Kusum find romance – despite Tanu returning to Manu’s life?

The film’s crowning glory is Kangana Ranuat who betters herself with every film she does. It a double treat for the Kangana Ranaut fans, who has done  fabulous job with her characters Tanu and Datto (Kusum).

Madhavan does a fine job as quiet, often morose, sometimes hopeful Manu – his shyly searching look at Kusum, wearing ear-rings he’s gifted her, is lovely. Deepak Dobriyal smashes it as Manu’s chatty buddy Pappi.

Tanu Weds Manu showcased the combined skills of the supporting cast (Swara Bhaskar, Eijaz Khan, Jimmy Sheirgill and Deepak Dobriyal).

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. Raj Shekhar’s lyrics add to the desi connect in Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

Aanand has struck the right cord with the way he has directed this movie. It is very difficult to direct a hit sequel to a successful movie but Mr. Rai has managed to do it with much exquisiteness.

You may find the second half of the move a bit dragging but not to worry; Aanand has directed an impeccable movie which will entertain you till the end.

Final Verdict:

Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR) is a damn good entertainer. Watch it for the one-woman-show of Kangana Ranaut!
