    First Review:

    Director: Anand L Rai: Cast: R Madhavan, Kangna Ranaut, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ravi Kissen, Deepak Dobriyal, Rajendra Gupta: Duration: 2hours: Tanu Weds Manu Movie Rating: 3/5

    Movie Review: Tanu Weds Manu falls far short of your expectations of yet another Bollywood flick weaving around the tale of a starry-eyed NRI falling for a desi chic. Just like Strangers, director Anand L Rai has lived up to the expectations and given the audience a romantic story narrated in an unconventional and un-clichéd manner.

    Tanu Weds Manu may give you a déjà vu feeling what with movies like Jab V Met & Pardes already having told the story along the same lines. Yet the movie strives to be different.

    The plot of Tanu Weds Manu revolves around a shy, desi very unassuming NRI doctor Manu played by R Madhavan who falls for a desi girl Tanu played by Kangana Ranaut. The twist here is, Manu is unlike other stereotypical NRIs. He is quite old-fashioned and thankfully minus the accent.

    But Tanu is quite the rebellious small-town girl, bold and beautiful with a vocabulary replete with expletives. Add to it her choice of life partner-a local don. You know the ending, that Tanu will wed Manu, yet the tale of the wedding finally happens keeps you engaged. Kangana finally gets a role in which she sounds convincing as the rebellious, bold & outspoken Kanpur girl.

    Madhavan is as usual at his best giving a very real and forceful performance. Other characters to watch out for are Jimmy Sheirgill who has given a classic performance though undermined in the movie. Swara Bhaskar who plays Payal, the friend and personal counsellor to Tanu is quite good at it. Deepak Dobriyal and Eijaz Khan help lighten up the atmosphere of Tanu Weds Manu.

    Accolades to the cinematographer of Tanu Weds Manu, Chirantan Das who has beautifully captured the hustle-bustle and the scenic beauty of the streets of Kanpur. Soundtracks like Sadi Gali and Jugni add to the flavour of the movie. All in all Anand Rai has done a good job at producing a light-hearted romantic flick. So if you are looking for some simple film and a family entertainer, pick Tanu Weds Manu.

    Movie Reviews
    By Taran Adarsh, February 24, 2011 - 14:10 IST


    I have often observed on my visits to the West that people living overseas are far more seeped in Indian ethnic values, customs, festivities and rituals, when compared to a lot many Indians living in Hindustan. Those who live there believe that by observing and practicing the Indian traditions, they would continue to remain Indian at heart. Most of them also wish to wed an Indian because they consider that their respective spouse would bring along with them time-honored Indian values.

    For some strange reason, Hindi cinema has often projected an NRI youngster as a cool and hep dude, pretending to speak Hindi with an English accent. But that, in my opinion, is merely a façade. It's far from real. Sure, there could be exceptions, but every NRI who arrives in India isn't wearing an Armani or Versace. Neither is he a die-hard romantic like Raj or Rahul. In fact, a lot of NRIs I know are amused to note that while they held on to the traditions, the ones in India are more inclined towards the West.

    Write your own movie review of Tanu Weds Manu
    Yet, the East-West love story remains a pet theme that continues to invade the Hindi screen. Films like PURAB AUR PASCHIM, DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE and NAMASTEY LONDON have explored this topic most convincingly. In fact, a lot many people feel that YRF and Dharma have highlighted this aspect in various films, which the diaspora has lapped up with glee. But, of late, films that carry with them the scent of the soil are being attempted by our storytellers. TANU WEDS MANU too highlights this facet.

    The NRI in TANU WEDS MANU is docile, unassuming and soft-spoken, has no accent or attitude, believes in arranged marriages, relishes the evergreen songs of Mohammed Rafi, is old-fashioned literally. The girl is contradictory. She's belligerent and dominating, also smokes, drinks and uses expletives, has had many 'affairs', has her new boyfriend's name tattooed on her chest, is a straight-forward and fearless babe. This is their story!

    Like his directorial debut STRANGERS, director Aanand L Rai opts for unconventional and unpredictable situations in TANU WEDS MANU. Of course, the fact that Tanu and Manu would tie the knot sooner or later is at the back of your mind, even before the reels have begun to unfold, but you want to experience their journey - their voyage from strangers to lovers.

    TANU WEDS MANU has some great moments, some standard ones, some tedious ones as well, when you feel that the story is being stretched for no particular reason. The drama tends to get heavy after a point and that takes a toll on the film. In fact, the writing gets shaky in the middle of the second hour, although the finale is well thought of and implemented. You may call it clichéd or formulaic, but it works big time.

    Meet Manu [R. Madhavan], a seedha saadha Doctor from London. Intelligent, temperate and from a respectable family, the perfect groom which every parent wants for their daughter. When he arrives in India, he realizes that India has changed and so have the people. The Indian women in particular are more attracted towards the Western lifestyle. Family pressure leads him to Kanpur to meet Tanu [Kangna Ranaut], the quintessential small-town girl who has studied in Delhi.


    Tanu is a smart, intelligent girl who will do everything that her parents will disapprove. With a mind of her own and a love for rebellion, Tanu is dead against an arranged marriage. But destiny holds something totally different for these diametrically diverse personalities.

    Although not similar to JAB WE MET, TANU WEDS MANU conjures up memories of the Imtiaz Ali-directed film. The Punjabi setting and the rebellious girl are two prominent similarities that one recollects instantly. Besides, in HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, PARDES, JAB WE MET as well as TANU WEDS MANU, the girl is in love with someone else and the protagonist helps them take the relationship forward. But director Aanand L Rai ensures that TANU WEDS MANU retains its individuality and doesn't come across as a replica/clone of those immensely likable films. In fact, his handling of several light moments as well as dramatic ones is exemplary.

    TANU WEDS MANU has some wonderful moments in the first hour, but I'd like to single out the sequence when Madhavan confides in Deepak Dobriyal about Kangna not wanting to marry him. Also, the sequence at the interval comes as a bolt from the blue. It's the writing in the post-interval portions that bothered me. Jimmy Sheirgill's sequences aren't as convincing. Also, since Kangna is shown to be a blabber mouth and also forthright and outspoken, why does she turn docile all of a sudden? It doesn't go with her character, honestly. Also, since Ravi Kissen has Madhavan's photograph [presumably handed to him by Jimmy Sheirgill], why is Jimmy unaware that Madhavan is the same guy when he meets him for the first time? A few hiccups, but not the type that really go against the film. However, the penultimate 15/20 minutes bring the film back on tracks. Actually, the climax is the highpoint of this enterprise.

    The soundtrack takes you by complete surprise. It is earthy and charming. 'Sadi Gali' and 'Jugni' are two tracks that act as pillars and would help attract moviegoers to cineplexes. Also, the popular track of yesteryears, 'Kajra Mohabbat Wala', is well integrated in the narrative. Chirantan Das's cinematography captures the lush locales of North India well.

    Even though Madhavan enacts the role of an NRI, he doesn't come across as a stereotypical phoren returned desi. He is real, restrained, yet forceful. To essay a character in such an understated manner is a challenge for any actor and he does it with complete understanding of the character. Unlike her past films, Kangna plays a part that has a zest for life and is bold and fun-loving at the same time. She's audacious, but lovable. Nonetheless, she needs to work on her pronunciation/diction, which sounds so peculiar.

    Jimmy Sheirgill springs a pleasant surprise. Known for portraying soft/positive roles, this one comes as a complete shocker. Though his role isn't well etched out, he leaves a solid impression in the latter reels. Ravi Kissen is wasted. What is he doing in this film? Deepak Dobriyal is superb yet again. This dynamic actor is under-utilized in our films. Rajendra Gupta, K.K. Raina, Navni Parihaar and Deepti Mishra are effective. Eijaz Khan and Swara Bhaskar are wonderful.

    On the whole, TANU WEDS MANU is a feel-good, light-hearted entertainer with the right dose of humor, drama and romance, besides a popular musical score and some smart dialogue that act as toppings. If you like simple, uncomplicated films that tug at your heartstrings, then chances are that you might just like this sweet little rom-com. In terms of economics, the right holders have already recovered a substantial amount from the sale of Satellite Rights. The merits of the film coupled with no major opposition till 1 April will ensure healthy returns on their investment, thus making the investors recover the remainder amount easily. The only concern is the inopportune release period for movies [World Cup] and chances are its business might get affected on days when crucial matches are played, especially when India is on field.

    Tanu Weds Manu review:

    Small town whirl The small town is spot on. The girls learn dance moves from Nach Baliye, learn English in 180 days, scream the hoardings in every marketplace, wedding guests drink whisky in steel glasses, everyone wears Kurt Cobain T-shirts without knowing about Nirvana, and all important decisions are taken in the presence of the entire family, including the old grandmother on the khatiya.

    The boy from London is a straight arrow who has ticked all the must-do boxes of a successful young man. The girl from Kanpur is a romantic in love with the idea of rebellion. He falls for her. She is in love with someone else. So far so cliche. But then the heroine's friend is a spitfire, the hero's friends are more than cardboard cutouts, and the parents are long suffering rather than overbearing.

    R. Madhavan gets a role worthy of his dreamboat status in the South though he does tend to look like the Incredible Bulk-he indeed is a "darling type of aadmi", as Kangna calls him. Deepak Dobriyal's foxy face conveys a wealth of sly and subtle emotion. KK Raina (so wonderful to see him back) is the well meaning dad who has never triumphed his domineering wife. Swara Bhaskar is a phataka as the independent minded, pragmatic friend. Even the normally blah Jimmy Shergill does brooding well.

    But the star is undoubtedly Kangna Ranaut, who cusses, drinks Old Monk neat, smokes grass, and gets her boyfriend's name tattooed on her chest. Her expressive face is always way ahead of her alarming diction but few films have done as much justice to girl power as Tanu Weds Manu. "Why make pacemakers," she says at one point to the hapless Madhavan, "when I serve that purpose?" Indeed as she dances to Kajra Mohabbat Wala, rides a motorbike, utters Amitabh Bachchan-worthy dialogues (darti to main apne baap se bhi nahin hoon), she shows why she's her very own Jhansi ki Rani and her very own Sarojini Naidu.

    Sure, it's basically Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge between Kanpur, Lucknow and Kapurthala but aren't all romances in India essentially variations of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge? What's good about Tanu Weds Manu is the level of detailing. The singing in the train compartment when a family travels together. The cutesy cushion in the girl's that squeaks when it's sat upon. The late night round of tea when a family crisis is on. The Sunil Dutt songs playing on the terrace in the moonlight. And the joys of eating garam puris on the way back from Vaishno Devi.

    Fun and feisty, just like Ms Ranaut, this is a movie worth watching. My favourite lines? All with Dobriyal. Sarkar abhi bhi bachayi ja sakti hai, he says. My name is Pappi. Bol ke doon, ya kar ke?
