Tanu Weds Manu (2011) Reviews

  • First half was brilliant, can't say same about the second one though!!!


    I had no prior intentions of watching this movie on first day first show. Some of my friends were going to watch this, so I joined them. Having just watched a trailer, I set out to watch this film without any expectations. But, to my surprise this movie made me laugh a lot and by the interval most people were out of their seats clapping and laughing. Movie also had a spicy Indian flavor which mixed with great humor made for really some treat. But, soon after interval, it turned out that this was too good to be true. After interval, movie started taking sharp turns some of those were beyond Human understanding. This could have been a wonderful 100 minutes movie. Don't know why directors instead opted for stretching this movie so much so as to make it completely boring and quite predictable too in the end. But, you won't regret your bucks if you see it with your friends for first time. This movie had some awesome beats as well. Punjabi beats were just irresistible not to dance upon them. Do check out OST after watching this movie. Madhawan was awesome as ever. Kangana is a good actress as far as acting is concerned and she didn't disappoint. But, it was difficult to gage the kind of character she played, which turned out to be a bit frustrating. Award for special acting, if any, will go to "Deepak Dobriyal" who in the cast of Pappu delivers an excellent performance. He is the one guy who keeps movie one even in a supporting role. Jimmy Shergil in his guest role is awesome too. His performance was very realistic. Eijaz Khan in the role of Jassi is also quite good. Having said that, this movie could have been a real gem which it wasn't. This is kind of movie you would want to see and then forget. Those not familiar with Indian culture might get disappointed because, Indian flavor is what makes this movie enjoyable. I will rate this movie as an average one. 7 out of 10.

  • A light hearted Rom-com Flick


    Guys Tannu weds Mannu is a light hearted Rom-com flick which u can enjoy with Ur family.It has some down moments and some very top standard .The movie is all over nice but not too good.There is nothing fresh but still some scenes can grab Ur attention .The director "Aanand Rai" who directed "Thoda Life Thoda Magic" and "strangers" comes with his new flick.Performances are the top notch part of the movie with its soundtrack,the songs like "Saadi Gali" and "Jugni" are so groovy that gives u a feeling to dance and track like "Yun Hi" is really fantastic and memorable for me,sung by 'Mohit Chouhan'.The Screenplay which is always the backbone of a movie is good but not awesome to grab the audience.Cinematography is worthy to watch.R. Madhvan and Kangana done a great job with this movie and best for me is a Jimmy Shergil,he is in guest appearance nd he is too good.Dialogues are also one of the best part of the movie. The movie is stretched in many parts but still it has some pop up moments,it has great storyline but less messed up climax would have worked wonders for the film. On the whole,Tannu weds mannu is a light family entertainment movie,if u love simple nd uncomplicated flicks than it is going to tug Ur hearts.So go nd watch it.Its a wonderful mismatch.

  • A candy floss cinema for a perfect weekend.


    TANU WEDS MANU is a feel good movie with its own pros and flaws. The movie starts off well with a typical start like a rom com movie added a Punjabi funk and flavor to it. The film manages to hook you with its sheer atmospherics.The director creates an extremely busy and colorful canvas brimming with characters who are anything but cardboard cut-outs. If Madhavan fleshes out a heart-tugging, oh-so-lonely and acutely Desi NRI, winning you over with his shy smiles and well-mannered chutzpah, then Kangna Ranaut's wild cat rebel is endearing too.The feel good attitude of the film is what it makes a worth watch. The story by Himashu Sharma is good but nothing new.The factor that keeps you engaged is the unpredictability.Dialogues are catchy and witty at the same time.Good score here.But the screenplay is okay. The editing by Hemal Kothari is lousy.The film could have been tightened post interval.The ups and downs in the rom com could have been elaborated slightly better.Kangna's transformation from wild cat to Susy etches.Cinematography by Chitranjan Das is good. Music is a complete surprise. Debutant Krsna takes a good start here.Background score is good and it complements the movie. Aanand L. Rai after a good start with "Strangers" looks promising here.He has managed well to differentiate an ordinary rom com with this one. TANU WEDS MANU deserves to be a different cinema in its genre due to directions.Minus few Hiccups in story section,the director has managed well the overall flow of the movie.

  • Good music, that's about it. Spoilers


    I enjoyed the music very much but hated the storyline. He 'falls in love' with her after seeing her asleep and denies a girl he got to know! The concept of the marriage was very foolish. Bollywood should know better by now and show love marriages. Kangana has talent and she showed how capable she was in this film but she was let down by the crazy plot. A friend would not threaten to kill you if you didn't give him the girl. The girl would not fall out of love and marry the guy who society deems acceptable! This COULD have been a story of true love. The character of Raja should have been cut out and the "arranged" concept left out. They should have been able to fall in love themselves. The music however, is wonderful! Sadi gali has become legendary and is definitely going to be memorable for years to come. Kangana has great potential, please Bollywood get some more realistic and better stories out!

  • Realistic presentation of an unrealistic story


    Last Sunday, just casually I went to watch Tanu Weds Manu with a low expectation. And to my immense surprise, I felt extremely satisfied after watching it. In fact, as the movie progressed, I found myself being lost in the narrative, flowing with the storyline and the characters (mainly with the hero). This low profile movie is based on an unrealistic story of a well-educated (and well-mannered) NRI doctor, falling for a drunkard, smoker, foul-mouthed and philandering girl of a middle class family of Kanpur (it's been told that she had had her education in Delhi). However, it's the utterly realistic portrayal of this unrealistic story on the screen which makes it a winner. As expected, the boy falling for the charms of the girl (whom he sees for the first time in a highly intoxicated state and he thought she was slept), finally wins her over first emotionally and then practically. So the end of the movie is as predictable as any other bollywood movie of the same genre. However, the twists and turns in the story alongwith the highly realistic milieu and the supporting characters involved, turn the experience of watching this movie into a highly satisfying one. At the very outset, it reminds the viewer of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and later it is reminiscent of Jab We Met and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge at places. However the commendable thing is that despite similarities in bits and pieces, this movie maintains an identity of its own. It's definitely not a copy of any other movie. The locales of Kanpur, Kapurthala, Lucknow etc. have been captured by the cinematographer with a high degree of excellence for which he deserves an award for sure. The lives of the middle class people (whether they are from the prospective bride's side or the prospective groom's side) have been shown with so much naturalness that the characters and their homes look quite real and nowhere filmi. The middle-class India shown in the movie is, in fact, the real one with real flesh and blood characters that may be found at next door to us. The first half is thoroughly gripping and entertaining whereas despite its shorter length, the second half is a bit dragging and edgy. However, overall the movie render an air of feel-good. We know that the hero will get his love in the end (after all, he is an Indian hero), still the script-writer has done a marvellous job by maintaining the curiosity throughout. After a very long time, I listened to such soul-soothing music in a bollywood movie. So full marks to the music director as well as the lyricist. The supporting characters of the movie are above its story; utterly real, familiar and like a gust of fresh air. Whether it's the chaddi-buddy of the hero or his present best pal, whether it's the closest friend of the heroine or the fathers of the hero-heroine duo, all are able to leave their imprints on the viewers' hearts. In fact, it's the supporting cast which is the heart and the soul of this movie. Jimmi Shergill stands out in the predictable climax and once again proves that he's an actor par excellence. I have been an admirer of R. Madhwan since his Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein days and to me, he played the character of the mature and considerate hero, doing justice to his love at first sight, with perfection. His underplay deserves a standing ovation indeed. Many readers may not agree with me, however I found Kangna Ranaut as miscast in the role of the spoilt girl. Barring the final 15-20 minutes, I found her expressions and gestures as plastic, not emerging from her heart. When Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge had been released, I was a heartbroken boy and not being mature enough, used to think of getting the love of my life in the style of Raj (Shah Rukh Khan). Later on, upon growing up with age only I realized that I could never be so resourceful as the larger than life character of Raj in DDLJ. However I am able to identify with Manu of TWM; the considerate, understanding, well-educated, yet old-fashioned and traditional and above all, sacrificing, true lover.
