Straight away, Tanu Weds Manu Returns is a total delight that keeps you laughing, sighing, cheering – and guessing throughout. Anand L Rai merits applause for his masterful direction of (scriptwriter) Himanshu Sharma’s rich, riotous story. Evoking a new-age Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Rai keeps things tight, light, yet layered – and handles two leading ladies, one of whom deserves an extra half-star.
angana Ranaut has delivered a masterful performance in this film. Not just Kangana- R Madhavan, Jimmy Shergill, Zeeshan Ayyub, Rajesh Sharma, K K Raina- each performance fits in beautifully. But the final toast has to be raised to its director, Anand L Rai and writer, Himanshu Sharma. Tanu Weds Manu Returns is definitely recommended to everyone; it entertains you and makes you laugh out loud.
.Right from the word go, the film’s director Anand L Rai successfully hits the right cord. At the onset, it may sound and look very easy to make a successful film’s sequel, but real challenge lies in transforming the sequel into a goldmine at the box-office. And Anand L Rai achieves that successfully and how! Backed with an immensely believable plot, Anand L Rai helms his role of a director very successfully. There are times when you get a feeling that he has surpassed the original as far as storytelling and film presentation is concerned. It’s a very wittily written film and superbly performance-oriented film.
