Tanu Weds Manu returns spills the magic on the audience with its two same yet different queens. The movie is a sequel to Tanu Weds Manu and the main cast is almost the same. Kangana Ranaut, R. Madhavan, Jimmy Shergil and Deepak Dobriyal cast the same magic as they did in part- one. The acting is unconventional and pure. It is directed by Aanand L. Rai. Tanu Weds Manu Returns is a romantic comedy that keeps you cheering, sighing, guessing and laughing for whole of 120 minutes without any dull moment.
Review of the Movie:
Tanu Weds Manu is a complete enchantment for you. It has come like a breeze of fresh air when the people were eagerly looking forward towards the release of a movie that they can watch repeatedly without getting bored. In the movie, Kangana (who plays the role of Tanu) and Madhavan (playing the role of Manu) married four years ago after a tempestuous romance, but eventually, the spark that was holding them close dies. They go through a very bitter separation when Tanu returns back to Kanpur, her hometown whereas Manu sulks in Delhi. There he meets Kusum, which is a double role of Kangana and starts falling for her.
The plot is very pacy and does not give the audience even a single dull moment. The pain of Manu, the honesty of Kusum, the delicacy of Tanu and the intensity of Jimmy hold the audience together and tugs at their hearts. The music is very touching and the movie is full of amazing performances by all the actors. Everyone’s acting seems to be complimenting others.
Things That We Learnt From Tanu Weds Manu Returns:
However, the movie is notfaultless but those minor faults remain unnoticed with the amazing plot and strong performances. Here are certain things that we learnt from the movie:
- Bollywood can work with the actress as the ‘hero’
The whole movie is focused in Kangana, Madhavan being a passive hero. Still, it managed to attract people and make them fall in love with it.
- Equality can be practiced anywhere.
In the movie, there exists a very intense scene where Tanu gets to know about her husband who has fallen for some other girl and thinking of getting married to her. She decides to confront him and says “Hum thode se bewafa kya hue Sharma ji.. Aap toh badchalan hi ho gye!!!” This is the very first time in bollywood that such a word has been used for a male, the word that used to be considered ‘only for females!’
- There exists a dignity even in the pain of a women that cannot be objectified
In certain scenes, Tanu can be seen getting drunk or roaming in the streets with a whisky glass. Still, like any other movie, she does not land up in any nightclub, objectifying her. The director maintained a dignity in her pain and suffering.
- It does not harm to act and be strong
Kusum is a very strong girl. There are certain scenes where she is shattered, cries in the corner and then comes back to fill up her plate with food.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns will not disappoint you in any manner. See it for the Queen of bollywood, Kangana if not for anything else!
