Planet Movies Rating:  4stars (4 out of 5 stars)

Reviewed By Madhukar KR

Tanu Weds Manu Returns starts off from where it left off from the first movie Tanu weds Manu. Manu Sharma (R Madhavan) marries Tanuja Trivedi (Kangana Ranaut) in 2011 amidst much fan fare. The film moves to London 4 years later. Tanu and Manu are undergoing counselling at a mental asylum where sparks fly between the two and mud splashing at each other’s bad habits in front of the psychiatrists. It is alleged that Manu is the most boring person she has ever met and that her life has become a house of boredom. Manu alleges that Tanu often flirts with the Englishmen in pubs and behaves erratic due to her constant mood swings. The film shifts to India back in Punjab where Tanu starts having a fling with her ex lover Raja Awasthi (Jimmy Shergill). Manu also returns back to India where he happens to meet a lookalike of Kangana called Kusum. He instantly falls in love again with her and manages to convince her to marry him. It turns out that Kusum is a would be of Raja Awasthi and the fun begins thereafter. What happens next forms the rest of the story.

There are many comic situations in the film which will amuse the audiences with laughter. The intro scene of the couple fighting verbally in front of the doctors is one the best comic way of portraying post marriage woes in Bollywood. The outburst of Kangana when she comes to know of Manu’s affair with Kusum is one the highlights of the film. Kangana is coming across as a superstar who can deliver thumping performances off late. She has given her contemporary actresses a run for their money. R Mandhavan and Jimmy Shergill have given their career best performances in the film.

The film is garnished with few good Punjabi numbers. The screenplay and direction is top notch by Aanand L Rai who gave the first part and Ranjhanaa earlier.

Kangana shines in her double role performance and walks away with the limelight. This is one of the best comic movies of 2015 which is not to be missed. The film is termed to be better than its prequel overall in terms of the story, songs, sequences and performances.
