Tanu weds Manu returns (2015)

The most entertaining film of the year by far, it had the entire cinema (which was houseful on a week night, late show) in splits.

A pure ensemble effort, the actors played out a very well written script. The story had loop holes and the plot was wavering, especially in the end, but it achieved what it set out to. Writer Himanshu Sharma take a bow!

Madhavan has spread out but has given able support to the ‘primary lead pair’ of the two Kanganas. While the former one was arrogant, the latter was adorable to a fault. The Haryanvi accent a little difficult to understand, she had us from the moment her long jump failed. She looked the part in both and director Anand L. Rai has made clear distinctions in every aspect of their personality. Be it the hair, teeth, dressing style, body language, walking style, temperament we get a double dose of humour.

Deepak Dobriyal as Pappi is the funny glue that holds the audience in stitches. He is unpredictable and whacko! Crazy humour aside he is a very fine performer. Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub as the lawyer Chintu is hilarious, providing able support for Tanu’s escapades.

Short, though not as crisp as we would like it to be, it is a fun film. I may not agree with some plot points or the climax but I have rarely laughed out so loud!

Strongly recommended dose of love and comedy!

3.5/5
