TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS – THE QUEEN AND THE MESS

TWMR

There’s a scene at the very beginning where MANU attributes all of Tanu’s craziness to Bi-polar Disorder.  I myself had a split personality disorder while watching the movie. Should I applaud at the jokes like the mass audience or should I tear down the shallow script and character sketch like a critic?

It’s a Kangana Ranaut vehicle from start to finish and she owns it like a star with her enthusiasm and energy.  Madhavan plays second fiddle like he always does. The plot – Tanu and Manu’s post marriage troubles.  I can see why the movie clicked with the masses. There are no over the top jokes, crass humour or sex. 

But the plot had two major loopholes Tanu’s character sketch and the cliché end. There’s a thin line between stupidity and craziness.  I found her antics stupid and not liberating and running away from responsibility isn’t freedom either. That’s exactly what Tanu does and Manu rightfully leaves her.

The lookalike Datto is an achiever and responsible but the bridegroom leaves her to choose his former crazy wife once again. Oh come on which era are we living in. Does it mean that marriages can be broken and patched up again at convenience? 

Kangana’s Queen and Vidya Balan’s Kahaani are good examples of well sketched woman-centric plots. Somehow Tanu weds Manu returns fall short.  Anand L Rai once again makes a half baked script work aided by some fine supporting act by Deepak Dobriyal and Jimmy Shergill. The songs suit the mood of the film. Anandji please give us a better script next time. The audience deserve better especially if you want to convey feminism

Tanu Weds Manu Returns – Watch it for the earnest performances of a wonderful cast

My rating – I stick with Rahul Desai’s 2.5 stars

  1. SPOT ON!!!
    Yes, the caps was to display my enthusiasm. It’s a Kangana movie out and out, and we need to leave our brains at home . And then yes, we’ll enjoy it. Start to dissect it, and there it goes. Still a better entertainer than some of the other crass (and crap) ones to hit the screens lately.

    Thanks for the nod of approval.. I loved the clean humour and the cast. My only problem was a plot full of cliches and loopholes…
